First visit to St Ives as parking is always an issue but we used the Park & Ride so this time we managed to get down to the front! The loft is just up a side street & is easily missed - we spotted it & ascended the stairs. Staff are very friendly & there is a choice of inside... More

Went for a family dinner on Saturday eve 4th Oct. we had Sunday lunch here last year which was very good so were looking forward to another visit. Could not fault anything. Wonderful cocktails! Starters: arancini with goats cheese, truffle, mushroom and fried kale were delicious and melted in the mouth. Mains: fish burger, curried monkfish and my sea bass,... More

I went for the seafood taster and shared some mussels and three way cooked chips. I would travel back to St Ives just for the crab scotch egg. The mussels in cider with the crispy chips were generous and packed with flavour.

We dined at The loft on 2nd October. This is our fourth visit this year. We love the food and the decor. The service is very professional and runs very well. When booking there was not an issue in accommodating my dads mobility issues and my Mum's dietary issues. In fact as the new menu was starting a few days... More

Sat in the sunshine on the terrace although it was covered in as a bit windy and showery. Friendly and efficient waitresses. We chose the set lunch taster menu at £13pp which was an oyster to start (have it raw or slightly cooked) followed by a crab scotch egg then a mini fish burger with fries and seaweed. All of... More

Viewed this on trip advisor. Was wary at first but they reassured me they would adapt their menu to suit gluten free. It was exceptional. My husband and I really enjoyed our meal out on the veranda. The staff were friendly and helpful and the desert was the best I had since developing coeliac 15 years ago. It may not... More

On our first night in St Ives we were looking for somewhere to have dinner. The Loft was the first "interesting/likely" restaurant we stumbled across.. However I wanted to have a wider recce of possible venues to eat. I should have saved myself some foot slog! The staff were youngish and very cheerful and attentive (just enough not intrusive). The... More

Like to thank everyone at The Loft Restaurant especially the chef for an amazing meal on Saturday night for mine & the wife's Wedding Anniversary. Having been a chef for over 15 years at Rosette level I know a thing or two about good food, ambiance and service & wasn't disappointed. We arrived 20 mins before our reservation and was... More
