We booked this restaurant before coming on holiday to St Ives because of the good reviews and we weren't disappointed. The food was excellent, the staff were very pleasant, helpful and attentive and all in a very pleasant ambience.

My sister and I dined at Seagrass, St Ives on Sat 28th June 2014. I had reviewed the restaurant and menu on the internet and booked prior to our stay in Cornwall, as a result of the great reviews, fabulous menu and the fact that the proprietors had received several awards. We were not disappointed at all and will most... More

Incredibly fresh produce to make delicious dishes. The ambiance was warm and the staff were very friendly. A lovely romantic dinner on our anniversary trip to St Ives. We will be visiting again very soon I'm sure

Was recommended to visit. The staff are very polite and efficient. The food is tasty and well presented , but the decor needs updating. Not much ambience, and does not have the view of other local restaurants , so needs to smarten up. Shame it is on the first floor.

Booking is a must, we couldn't get in the first night we tried but we persevered and came in on a Friday night and it was pretty much full. We chose off the fixed price menu which comes in at three courses for about £20 and it was great. I had the squid followed by the pheasant and my partner... More

Very friendly staff and very accomodating to accept our late reservation for a Saturday night. The Seagrass Mojito is highly recommended to start things off and the quality of the food is exceptional. We would not hesitate to go back again the next time we are staying in St Ives.

Great food, warm and friendly service- just right, attentive but not in your face. Very tasteful interior decoration- but the food does the talking- will definately be back!

Seagrass is the tiniest little restaurant so we were very pleasantly surprised that they were able to offer us a table with a short wait. The seafood we ate here however is some of the best I have had in UK. Scallops and langoustines were so fresh and yen presentation was amazing.

My partner booked this after researching the internet and reading all the good reviews; Seagrass exceeded expectations even after reading them all. The service was second to none, with us being made to feel very welcome with attentive efficient service, and they were especially good with our 2.5 year old we had in tow. The food was superb, a great... More
