My friend and I had spent the morning exploring St Ives and were quite famished by the time we got to the row of restaurants on St Ives' seafront. There are quite a lot to choose from and they all had enticing menus so we narrowed the choice down by opting to have local fish. The Beach looked very cosy... More

What a beautiful place to eat, scenery was amazing along with the food. Exellant service, waitress was very friendly . We spent over 2 hours in the restaurant and didnt want to leave, the food was freshand well cooked, mussels were the best I've ever had. Overall worth every penny and a must for all. Sel & Keith

Once again five blobs and ate here twice. Great fish extremely well cooked and overseen by some great staff who have embraced the concept of customer service. The staff were friendly, attentive and knowledgeable which complemented some extremely well prepared dishes. Other fish based restaurants can learn a lot from the beach Restaurant (if they want to)

Visited this restaurant 3 years ago and remembered the lovely view and super service. This year all the same but thought the food pretty average which was a bit disappointing. Hope back to normal next time we visit.

We chose this restaurant for several reasons, the location over looking the harbour was fantastic and we knew we would enjoy looking out whilst we have our last lunch in St Ives. The menu was all about fish that was the second reason. Whilst we have stayed in St Ives we ate fish most days at some point but you... More

The Beach Restaurant in St Ives is a real gem. The restaurant is located on the first floor - the wet fish takeaway below is owned by the same family - and as such, offers a first class view over the harbour. The menu is varied, very reasonably priced and has obviously been put together with thoughtful consideration for both... More

Had a few days in St Ives in October and one evening decided to have F&C out of the wrapper sitting watching harbour life go by. Had the locally caught cod which was truly excellent, indeed I have only had better in Aberdeen. Very good value to. The only downside which I have made reference to on other reviews is... More

We picked this place for dinner more or less at random and are so glad we did! The mussels were big and perfectly cooked and the beer battered cod was light and crispy. Our only regret is that the portions were so big we didn't have room for dessert!
