Visited here when we were staying in Carbis Bay. Saw it had good reviews on trip advisor and did not disappoint. We both had fantastic meals and large portions - especially for the price. The restaurant itself was really quaint and the staff were really friendly and helpful. If you are in the area it is definitely worth a visit!

For what I paid for sausage and mash in a pub the day before I had a lovely piece of fish, nicely presented. Cracking glass of wine as well. Would definately come back again. I had to ring before hand to get added to the table and was told an extra diner was no problem as long as we finished... More

The Seagrass restaurant is up a little side street, with just a front door to be seen from the outside. Through the door and up the stairs and you reach the restaurant on the first floor. A small restaurant with the tables positioned around the horseshoe shaped bar. Unfortunately not a great atmosphere or vibe in the restaurant. A decent... More

Found this little place at the last minute and they fitted us in at an early sitting as they were fully booked from 7 onwards. Fantastic. Couldn't have been more accommodating. Genuinely friendly service, and the food was fantastic, best meal of the weekend - probably the best meal for a while! I was so refreshing to be served mussels... More

Service was excellent and all questions around the food answered well and knowledgeably. Had a starter of scallops which had been over cooked slightly producing a tough skin on a couple, black pudding which came with it was fantastic, wrapped in a Japanese pancake was a great idea. Hake as a main was a good choice and was very nice.... More

Found this restaurant online before our trip to St Ives. The food truly was amazing. We had mussels and chorizo and squid salad for starters and they were both incredible- so many great flavours. The portion sizes weeee very good too. For mains we had seafood stew and mushroom gnocci which both tasted perfect. This restaurant is a must visit... More

Given the good reviews, this was terribly disappointing. The starters were ordinary, the fish dish badly overcooked with tasteless vegetables, the pheasant dish reasonably cooked but with little taste. The service was rustic - wrong wine brought.

Sorry to hear of your disappointment with your meal at Seagrass... after contacting you directly, you advised us that you visited us on the 24th February. I have spoken with our waitress and chef to try and understand what happened...they cannot recall any complaints that evening. We always ask guests if everything is ok with their meals..... so if there... More
