We stumbled across Seagrass when down in St Ives for a short trip and we are so pleased that we did. I managed the nab the last table of the night and we received excellent service from start till finish. The food was fantastic, with great choice and everything we had was cooked to perfection. The cocktails to start were... More

A great find just off the main front - a wide variety of inventive fish dishes (recommend the scallops with black pudding for starters and delicious seafood risotto for mains). The staff were really attentive and the atmosphere cozy and unrushed. Would definitely recommend and we'll return the next time we're in St Ives.

Our long awaited visit to Seagrass didn't dissapointed us, delicious scallops to start with, then a steak to die for it just melted in my mouth and to finish my all time favourite dessert....creme brûlée. A nice bottle of red and our evening was complete. Lovely staff and the ambience is just right. See you next time......

We booked in advance (essential) for the early evening menu with two children. Service was swift and the food excellent. We came last year and the portions on the early menu were quite small. This year they are huge and delicious and just as tasty. Highly recommended.

We have been to Carbis Bay for the last four summers, the place is in a micro climate where the sun shines in August and rain is not even in the vocabulary. However of an evening we make a point of walking the scenic coast road to St Ives to sample the varied 'fish based' fare. This year we tried... More

Very high standard of food. Too start we had Crab & crayfish tail cocktail with avocado mousse & cherry tomatoes, which was so so good and a Smokey pork rillettes with red onion marmalade & brioche toast, which was nice but not a patch on the crab. Mains both had the seafood rosotto Cornish crab, squid, mussels and tiger prawns,... More

Impeccable service. We were going to order a starter, as well as share the Seafood Ragu as a main. The waitress said it would be a big challenge to eat both, so we took her advice and just ordered the Ragu. It was sumptuous. Amazingly generous, and very high quality fresh seafood. We had to leave a little at the... More

Arrived early without a booking and were told they could fit us in for 1.5 hours as would need the table by 7.30. Despite this didn't rush us although we were conscious of the time and did manage to vacate by 7.30 just. Very friendly staff and lovely food. Just had staters and mains because of the time constraints. Would... More

My wife and I visited Seagrass to enjoy a meal to celebrate her birthday on 05/09/14 and It's a real shame we don't live locally because I can think of 100's of reasons to eat here!! The service is brilliant, both friendly and professional but not too intrusive. The food is superb in terms of presentation, quantity, quality and value,... More
