We had been anticipating our visit to Seagrass for some time but sadly it did not live up to expectation. Undoubtedly the food was mostly excellent but the atmosphere was non existent, the service patchy and all of this in a draught that left all 4 of us wishing we had brought more clothes - at the end of July....

Booked a table here with my friend and pre ordered the lobster Thermidor for 2 as a starter. We ended up with 2 1/4 lb lobster beautifully cooked on a bed of salad with 2 small dishes of Thermidor sauce on the side, which was delicious, and allowed you to chose how much sauce you wanted. The lobster also came... More

Great little restaurant with friendly staff and fantastic food, really enjoyed my Mussels. Close to the harbour which is great, but only views of the car park which is a shame!

If you want a nice formal dinner in St. Ives, go here. The mussels were the best I've ever had - even better than in Brussels. The seafood linguini is huge and delicious and I had no room for dessert. I can usually make room, but not this time. The dessert menú looked delicious and I'm sure it would not... More

What a great place! Fantastic service from a young team from start to finish. The food is delicious. Gnocchi, mussels and calamari were all superb starters. Hake and the seafood linguini were substantial mains. Desserts sublime also. We were all very satisfied with the quantities and the tastes. This place is a must visit.

We went here when we read all the alcaldes and we are so happy did. It's just off the main promenade, rather small and nice and quite. The service was top notch which included the food. We started with wiped Brie with beats and oranges. My wife had a wonderful Hate dish and I had the Sea Bass. The Banana... More

A friendly restaurant with excellent service and lovely food. Be prepared to book in advance before your visit to St Ives as The Seagrass is very popular. We had the Early Bird Menu one night which was good value for money and the a la carte menu the next night which again was good value and beautifully presented and prepared.... More

We Arrived early for our reservation and were warmly welcomed by the hostess. They were happy for us to sit at our table and play cards until we were ready to order. The service, ambience and food were all outstanding. Not only was the food truly delicious the portions are incredibly generous too. Highly recommended!

My husband and I have eaten in this restaurant for the last 5 years whilst on holiday and found it to be of excellent quality, wonderful food obliging staff and relaxed atmosphere, the only drawback is the steep staircase up to the dining room, but otherwise a lovely place, we have found that booking in advance is recommended, as with...
