My family and I had a fantastic meal at this restaurant recently. Beautiful, adventurous food and friendly staff. A real joy to find such a brilliant vege restaurant during our stay. Was definitely up there with our favourite restaurants in Brighton and Central London. Would definitely recommend.

I went to the Bean inn restaurant for my 18th birthday and all I can say is **WOW**! This is by far the best restaurant I have EVER been to and I'm not over exaggerating! All of the meals were cooked to absolute perfection, my compliments to the chefs! The seating areas are very comfortable, the staff friendly and you... More

I arrived in Carbis Bay in the evening on the first day of my holiday after a long drive. I couldn't find my rental property and popped into The Bean Inn to ask for help. The staff were so helpful and kind and I decided to pop in for a meal later in the week. I wasn't disappointed; the food... More

We had a lovely vegetarian meal at The Bean Inn last night - the food was excellent, very fresh and tasty with generous portion sizes, the staff were very friendly too. It was a nice surprise to find such a good quality vegetarian restaurant in St Ives and we would definitely return next time we are on holiday here.

Having been a vegetarian for over 20 years and bringing my family up as vegetarians I was really looking forward to eating at the Bean Inn. However we were all very disappointed. Maybe my palate isn't very sophisticated but the food lacked taste or maybe just seasoning. The dishes were a little pretentious to be honest and there was nothing... More

Three of us ate here on Monday 19 May 2014. I have eaten here before so had an idea of the treats in store for us. The choices were all tempting and based on local, often organic and hugely fresh food. I had a gorgeous and very generous portion of a version of Thai curry with allotment vegetables, which I...

We thought we would give the restaurant a try but it was one of those where you wish you could slink away once you got inside. Mainly because it was one of those embarrassingly quiet rooms where you can hear everything said at the next table... Least relaxing meal in a while....sorry guys. Don't get me wrong, the food was...

I had read really good reviews of this place, so was keen to try it, but I had some quite specific dietary requirements. I mentioned when I arrived that I was vegan and wanting a meal without gluten or sugar (including fruit). They were more than accommodating. It was explained to me that it may take a little while as... More
