We were looking forward to our first visit to The Loft and were so disappointed. My starter of langoustine at £7.95 was a total rip-off. Then the main course of Seabass, overpowered by a brown soup like sauce, very salty, it spoiled the dish. The fish was beautifully cooked. We had the chips and they were excellent. The house white...

Tried this restaurant as it was close to where we were staying. We ate on the Terrace so we could take our dog and it had lovely views. The food was very good although the puddings a little plain. Well worth a visit.

Converted loft with a contemporary interior. Menu has some interesting twists, excellent quality. Not the easiest to find but well worth it.

Loved the food and the terrace is a lovely place to dine, We had lunch. The staff couldn't be more accommodating (we had two quiet dogs with us who were supplied with water and a shady table position by the restaurant).

Ambience and charm. Lovely restaurant with great service. First night here in st.ives and pleased with our choice. Smoked salmon starter ok, not so keen on the cooked cucumber mind! The rest was great. Cod main was really nice, chips were amazing. Knickerbocker glory was 'interesting' if you like stewed fruit. Wouldn't have again though! Not quite what I expected.... More

Great restaurant, amazing food from starters to desserts, professional service. One of the best places we have eaten so far. Very impresses, would recommend to anyone. Prices very reasonable considering the culinary quality you get.

Our annual trip to St Ives and to the Loft. It's never let's us down, the best food in St Ives. Try the popcorn and panna cotta but make sure you leave room for it!

A great evening out with friends enjoying superb food, but why the paper pompoms hanging from the ceiling and the incessant female jazz singers? You would have scored 5 if you let the architecture of the lovely old sail loft speak for itself and if the music was more of a mixture to please more of the people all of... More
