We were a little unsure of our choice of places to eat on visiting St Ives recently. We chose this because of the location and we were not disappointed. We had a superb meal with great service. I had mussels which were delicious, and my husband had the special of the day which was fish pie, he agreed also very... More

Stumbled upon this fresh fish restaurant while strolling around st ives harbour. The overall atmosphere was very honest and unpretentious. We shared some oysters and scallops to start, both were delicious and set us up perfectly for the grilled fish main- a whole bream and whole sole. Both of the fish came with a choice of stuffing/sauce and side of... More

If you are looking for a restaurant with fantastic fish choices, this is the restaurant to visit. we have eaten here on many occasions when holidaying in St. Ives, but it just gets better and better each year. Not only is the food great but the friendliness and helpful attitude of the staff makes the evening. You choose your fish,... More

Food and Service very good, the fish menu is exceptional, well worth a visit. The restaurant gets very busy so it is best to call in to book a table.

So good we ate there three times in a week. The staff are welcoming, friendly and give great service. The food is delicious, quality food and at reasonable prices. Good choice for fish lovers and meat eaters. Loved the choice of how to have the fish served with different butters, plain, battered or crusted and a variety of potatoes and... More

We visited St Ives in May half-term and on a busy Friday night we couldn't get a table anywhere. We were starting to feel a bit desperate and I just popped up the steps to Beach Restaurant who although were very busy said they would have a table available in 15 mins. After only a 5 minute wait, what a... More

This is the second time that we have visited the Beach Restaurant and it was every bit as good as last time. I am puzzles by the mixed reviews on tripadvisor as people are confusing the takeaway below, which is called Vittals, with the restaurant. They may share the same ownership and maybe even kitchen, but the menus are obviously... More

Myself and my family were in St Ives for the day, and decided to book a table at the Beach Restaurant - and we were so glad we did! A popular place, by the time we arrived for our reservation the staff were turning people away as the place was fully booked, and we were soon to discover why. The... More
