We've just returned from Christmas Day lunch at Seagrass, and it was absolutely perfect in every way! The menu was imaginative and not overly stodgy or heavy, just what was needed after a few weeks of over indulgence. This was our first ever Christmas away from home, and we were a bit worried that dining out wouldn't have been up... More

My elderly mother, an even more elderly friend and I ate here one evening. Food and staff both excellent. Parking immediately opposite at Sloop - a great advantage in St Ives.

on a cold and windy Cornish evening there was a warm welcome at Seagrass followed by very well cooked seafood that demands a return visit.

The food was great and the staff very, very friendly. Will definitely return again. The experience of the Seagrass complimented our child free weekend.

Tracked this down on the basis of TripAdvisor reviews and they weren't wrong. This place has a lovely atmosphere. Superb fish and seafood. I had the seafood stew, which unusually was done in a lemon and parsley broth rather than tomato and very nice it was too. The seafood risotto was also first class. It was full on a busy... More

I recently booked a table at this restaurant for my partners birthday. The attention to detail that all the staff had shown from offering to get flowers in for the occasion and the chilled Prosesco waiting on the table. The food was amazing and I cannot thank everyone enough.

Visited mid week after reading trip advisor comments. Booked via website email which was quick and easy. Service was excellent and there was a lovely young blonde lady who couldn't be more helpful, even making non alcoholic cocktails for me as I was driving. Thank you!

thank you for your review - so glad you enjoyed! Note taken regarding informing of our pre order request for lobster and shells - we will endeavour to do this when taking calls/email bookings. For Autumn/Winter we require 24 hours notice for any items off our oyster & shells menu (due to availability and we do not like to 'hold'... More

Stayed in St Ives many times but have never had the pleasure of visiting Seagrass before - it is not as obvious as many of the other restaurants on the sea front that draw you in whilst passing such as Alba) ... It is upstairs & only noticeable by a door at the bottom of a Fish Street. Seagrass is... More
