Had a meal here as we like the chef who used to be at the St Andrews St Bistro, sadly it was his night off! Starters were good but our fillet steak was average and the chips nothing special not really cooked enough,a very expensive average meal, oh and the chairs are very uncomfortable.

We new it would be hard to find a table in a nice restaurant in St Ives around peak summer holiday season, so we pre-booked approx four weeks before our four night break, just by viewing on the internet. We was not disappointed, on arrival our table was waiting, service was excellent and the food was great. Will definitely book... More

We have a very limited time when we stay in St Ives. My wife book in advance and seriously i was not aware what's coming. An incredible service with an amazing meal whether we talk about lobster or crab. Living in APAC you have a sea food every day and the quality is great - this is definitely worth of... More

Booked weeks in advance which was a good thing as several people were turned away without bookings. Oysters with a glass of Miru Miru was my starter and my partner had mussels. Both were delightful. I asked for lobster and was offered a 1.5 lb half or 1.5 lb whole lobster and chose the half, it was delicious with thermidor... More

We visited Seagrass for our 6th wedding anniversary on the 22nd August 2014. The quality and presentation of the good was exceptional. The service was also very good, however, the restaurant was a little quiet when we first arrived. It soon busied up though and we had a thoroughly enjoyable evening there.

In terms of both quality of food and standard of service, our evening meal at Seagrass was the best of our holiday in St Ives. The restaurant is small and initimate so as previous reviews suggest, book early! Tucked away behind the main harbour, you don't get the views, but this is certainly made up for by the attentive and... More

Expected more from the food. I ordered scallops and black pudding to start. Three very small scallops were served with a very small black pudding spring role and overpowering puree. Didn't work for me. My daughter had the crab & crayfish tail cocktail which was good. We all had the fisherman's stew. It was OK. For £17 I was expecting... More

We visited here with family and had a lovely time. I would recommend this to other people, as the food was excellent quality and portion size was decent. Everyone was pleased with their meals. Book ahead though, as it is not a large restaurant!

We shared a night out with friends in St Ives and booked Seagrass. You have to book early to get in here! Its a nice small place, and has a very intimate atmosphere. The menu as might expect is full of divine sea food dishes, we were disappointed that we had not been told on booking that the "Fruits of... More
