Best Food

The food in this small restaurant is so tasty, worth waiting for a seat. Best meal I had all week. I had the Mackerel Fabulous.

Beautiful cafe overlooking the harbour. Good sized portions, the staff were very friendly and accommodating. I would thoroughly recommend the scones- served warm and one of the best I've had! We all agreed on the drive home that it was one of the highlights of the Cornwall trip! We were only disappointed that we couldn't stay for dinner after seeing... More

Keep walking around the harbour and you will find a fantastic little 'tea room' It is always very busy during holiday times but definitely worth waiting for a place. Cream teas are very good and the cakes aren't bad either.

The Tea Room offers an amazing experience from beginning to end. The service was way above average, we had a nice aperitif while we tried to decide from the appealing menu. We were not disappointed with our dishes, but I doubt we would have been regardless of the actual choice. The food was clearly prepared with a lot of attention... More

We had a very tasty cream tea at the Tea Room. Lovely scones and yummy clotted cream! Tea came in a pot which was of generous size. Definitely recommended!

Based on excellent reviews on TripAdvisor we gave The Tearoom a try. We were more than impressed - fantastic service from everyone and the cream tea was first rate. Lovely warm scones with generous side pots of clotted cream and jam. Great environment/atmosphere too. Fully recommended!

We came across this lovely tearoom in St ives. I wanted to get my boyfriend to try a crab sandwich. We ordered crab sandwich and blt all served with coleslaw and like a lemon mayonnaise it was very delicious. We ordered cream teas for both of us and it was yummy, warm scones and pot of clotted cream and jam... More

Situated by the harbour beach we had an excellent breakfast overlooking the sea. The pancakes were superb as was the capuccino. Service was very good and the decor is clean with some excellent paintings. Would eat here again.

My family and I went to 'the tearoom' for cream tea while on holiday in Cornwall. Scones were served slightly warm with generous portions of strawberry jam and clotted cream. Pot of tea is included in the cream tea price but coffee is offered as an alternative if that is wanted which was ideal. Didn't manage to try any other... More

Have been here a couple of times for lunch & wonderful cups of tea. This year we booked for our evening meal, fantastic food, very relaxed atmosphere, nice length of time between courses & front of house chap suitably attentive & friendly. Definitely will be back. Probably one of the most delicious meals out we've had.
