Imaginative food, well presented and great service. A lovely dining space which was creatively decorated and interestingly lit with candles. Friendly and welcoming.

Nicely presented interior with good sea views, however, when the food was served the fish was raw and cold. The steak was hardly warmed on the inside. I would have preferred our food cooked like we paid good money for. We all felt off the next day and would definitely not return. It was fortunate that the portions of uncooked... More

A bit of a friends' 'Road trip' lead us here since I had eaten lunch at the Loft very happily in the past. We (5 plus toddler) had a relaxed and leisurely dinner with attentive but not pushy service.

Knowing I had visited the area in February last year, I was asked by a lady I work with to recommend 'somewhere special' in St. Ives for her daughter to spend a birthday afternoon with some friends. I recommended the loft without hesitation. We had endured a terrible 10hr drive from Liverpool in some of the worst weather this country... More

I visited the Loft with my family for lunch. The waitress who served us was great with the children and brought them ice cream, made a fuss of them and it was a real treat. Our food was lovely and filling - we could tell it was good quality / healthy ingredients and

We visited the Loft on Saturday 27th December. We were a party of 4 adults. My brother and his partner had come down to us for Christmas. We were having a day out and a meal. As there was a party already going on inside the restaurant we decided to sit out on the balcony which was covered in and... More
