Visited the loft with some friends following a recommendation andvcwere most impressed. The welcome and attention were as good as one can expect from Caroline ( the owner) and staff. We had an amazing Chateau Briand and as a result shared a star and dessert. The meat was exquisitely prepared and amazingly tasty with the price very reasonable for what... More

But we were very pleasantly surprised. The food was fresh,tasty, nutritious and well presented. We were the last customers for lunch but were not rushed at all. Prices were reasonable.

We visited The Loft last night with our two friends after excellent recommendations hoping the place would live up to them. We weren't disappointed! As soon as we arrived Caroline, one of the owners, made us feel really welcome. We were offered a choice of table inside or on the twinkling,covered terrace. We chose the latter hoping to encourage summer... More

Lovely setting, lots of candles and subtle decoration. Tables thoughtfully arranged to get the best out of the view. We both had the 2 course set meal - very reasonable price. We chose the lamb tagine - bursting with flavour and really delicious. And then of course - the cinnamon doughnuts with raspberry curd! So light and tasty, we decided... More

Great food, charming and efficient service (we didn't mind the Flip Flops), we were early, hence relaxed atmosphere. Decent music and ypu don't need to shout across the table.

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

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.
