Trendy, romantic and affordable restaurant; good for eating fish, but also new and elaborated dishes. The best in ST Ives!

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

I recommended the loft without hesitation. We had endured a terrible 10hr drive from Liverpool in some of the worst weather this country... More
