When visiting Cornwalll we always try and treat ourselves to a visit to the Loft. However, think this might be the last time. The location and setting is lovely, the staff are friendly polite and helpful. It's just the food is over priced. £95 for dinner for 2, with wine and to be honest nothing special. The mussels were delicious,... More

Nice place tucked away in St Ives, quirky setting with great food and staff. The food was not only superb but the portion sizes were very good. Great value for money. Nice for a couple.

Originally we had planned another booking elsewhere for my wifes birthday whilst on holiday in Carbis Bay which had left us a little dissapointed. However we popped into the Loft for a light lunch and were very pleasantly surprised at the high standard of food and service so decided to book a table for later that evening. We arrived a... More

Dissapointing visit. Mussel starter good quantity but tasteless. Main veg underdone the chard inedible the chicken dry. No one of authority gave us a proper explanation and initially only offered us free coffee or a sweet for one person. Eventually we did not pay for the main or the starter. May have hit a bad night but will not be... More

We came for a quick drink and stayed for two hours due to the lovely sun terrace, friendly staff and watching the newly hatched gull chicks.

We tried the early bird 3 course meal for dinner whilst on holiday. The cocktails set a positive mood, so when the battered squid arrived, and was too salty to eat, we asked for another with good cheer (apparently the chef agreed with us, and the replacement was fine). The main course would have benefitted from some potatoes, but still... More
