This was our second visit to this restaurant and it was delicious. We ordered Cod and Chips with Mushy Peas and Tartare Sauce. Presentation of the food was lovely as were the friendly staff. We'll be going again when we visit St Ives again.

Fab fish and chips, freshly made to order very tasty. Even so kids portions which the kids loved. Only criticism is that you have to pay for the sauces £0.25 a portion, surely this could be complimentary how much does it actually cost to buy these or buy the larger bottles.

Stopped off for fish and chips after a long day walking and pleased to find this restaurant . It was a cut above other cafe sea front fish and chip shops in its interior and the food was first rate.

I've been here a few times now and always have the same - battered cod and chips. I'm a traditionalist. However I do like having some lemon slices and parsnip crisps on my cod. It's a nice twist. Every time I've been its been different staff but they have always been fast and friendly. The restaurant is in perfect location... More

Big chunks of juicy cod, with beautiful soft crunchy batter, no bones either, there is nothing nicer than a fresh fish when your on the coast, the chips were lovely to.

This is a fancier version of a chippy with a great selection of fish available both batter fried and in a lighter grilled version. Nice interior and friendly staff.

Looks great, smells great, looks the part but it falls flat on food quality for me... Fancy sausages that don't taste all that great ( they don't even provide battered sausage) I've cooked nicer at home.. and it was all a little pricey for what it was... the curry sauce was not up to par and the only good thing...
