This suited us well being a more reserved venue than many in St Ives and serving very nice food in a classic style. The dining room was very pleasant, though if you want the magnificent view over St Ives you need to ask as most tables are away from the window

I read many glowing TripAdvisor reviews; but, in our opinion, neither the food nor the service supports the reputation of this hotel restaurant. It's become a bit shabby; and the service is even shabbier. The food is of reasonable quality, but needs more imagination and much better presentation. We give it an "OK," but we had envisioned a "Wow."

This was among the recommended restaurants in St. Ives provided by locals. It was a treat. The meal was excellent and the service was superb. There were 8 of us and we were all pleased as punch. This restaurant stresses local foods when possible and it was worth every penny. The views from the bar are spectacular, but the food... More

We went to the Hotel Garrack for a traditional English lunch and the whole experience was delightful... just perfect. Very attentive service... Beautiful view of the sea and the St Ives beach. The food was excellent and all of it was cooked perfectly. Most of it was local produce. Save room for desert because its excellent.

We visited the Garrack in January after reading positive reviews online. Being a hotel that is a little out of the way, understandably it is not well known among the locals as a restaurant, but we thought we'd take a bit of a chance. We were really pleasantly surprised as not only were the staff very friendly and accommodating (despite... More

I stumbled across the restaurant, only because i happened to stay in the hotel for three nights. I therefore ate there. The second best in St. Ives? Ok. the plus points. The wine list is absolutely fantastic and the hosts are some of the best in the country. It seems to me that they purchase wine at a certain price,... More

At the time of writing this, The Garrack occupies number 2 slot in the restaurant list for St Ives, which in my opinion is too high. My wife and I dined on a weekday evening and were advised to book for 6.30pm so that we could select from the early dining menu or the regular one. The former was 2... More

We had the early supper, which was two courses at a reduced price. My husband had steak, which was very good. I ordered a crayfish salad as a main course, which turned out to be a small pile of leaves, with what looked like a whole mug full of crayfish tails turned out on the place, with a little sauce....
