Really lovely meal, great service, fantastic food.

From start to finish the staff were great. Good selection on the menu not too much but enough to choose from, which tells me it will be freshly prepared and we weren't disappointed. All courses were really tasty and the size of portion was more than enough. Staff very attentive but not in a rush to... read more

first visit. Enjoyed it. Had researched the menu first but the menu we were presented with was not what we had seen on line. Selection was limited. This would not have been a problem but the staff made no reference to it what so ever. However, what was available was excellent, the service was good and we will try again... More

We were told that this restaurant served high class food and we were not disappointed. We were preparing to have to pay much more for the quality of food we received. The vegetable curry with added tiger prawns and monk fish was outstanding and I was told that the fish pie was 'amazing'. The staff were very kind and considerate... More

Visited this restaurant on recommendation during our stay in St Ives. From the moment we entered, the staff were fantastically welcoming and friendly, and the food was superb! Best Sea Bass I've eaten! Such an impressive establishment all round and would thoroughly recommend if you are looking for good food whilst in the area!!

amazing atmosphere and amazing food their fish selection is brilliant. The pictures dotted around make for a great visit and a way to fill the time while waiting for the food to be delivered.

Have just had a great meal out at The Mermaid Restaurant. Definitely one of the best meals I have had. I had steak and hubby had the Sea Bass. Lovely atmosphere also and great that it was quiet as low season. I can see why there is such a demand for seats in peak season. Keep up the good work!
