Great experience

Thoroughly enjoyed our meals - the mint & lavender pana cotta is to die for - and the service was great. Would definitely recommend it.

We returned to Seagrass after a year away to find a few changes. We were pleased to see a different menu as the previous one had been around for ages. Unfortunately, it didn't really deliver for us. The menu gives the impression of fine dining, however, we felt it was more rustic than fine. Not a poor experience, just a... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to the Seagrass restaurant. Located directly opposite the harbour, the Seagrass is a great place to enjoy a lovely evening out in St Ives. We tried to book ahead and we were initially told that there was no availability at an earlier time but they kindly rang to inform us of a late cancellation. We... More

We booked here in advance largely on good trip advisor ratings. We had the seafood platter for 2 and mussels, although the seafood itself was fresh, both meals were tables and bland. In particular the bisque inadequately prepared and watery. The dessert was indifferent. When we raised this with the waiters, they didn't seem interested and just giggled and apologised.... More

We decided to go to this restaurant when we saw the EB offer on the menu outside last Friday evening. Luckily they had a table available and the food was really good. We went there a few years ago but remembered it as a bit too expensive so hadn't been since.. After this experience I am sure we will be... More

Whilst in St Ives last week we covered a few restaurants, of memorable quality. This was the one that we returned to on our final night. The chef obviously knows his onions. I ate one of the best pieces of Hake I have ever been served. I delighted in the finest 'mint' panacotta I ever could have dreamed of. When... More

We ate here on our last night in St Ives, and by this point I was desperate for decent meal. Seagrass has promise, some dishes were good but overall the quality was inconsistent. I started with the ham hock terrine. It was supposed to be served with toast, but instead I was given two thick slabs of focaccia. The terrine... More
