“Long wait poor food”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013

Ordered a chicken burger and fries. Waited 35mins for it to arrive having been told they took 30mins as they were cooked to order and it arrived lukewarm and the chicken so thin it could have been grilled in 35seconds, not minutes. Disappointing.

“Fresh and tasty”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 2, 2013 via mobile

Ate here on our first night in st ives and it was a good decision. Bread and dips to start followed by a BBQ meatlovers pizza and a half rotisserie chicken. Wife's chicken was lovely served with homemade coleslaw and homemade fries. Plenty of toppings on pizza too.

“Excellent steaks and wine”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

We hadn't booked but the waitress kindly found us a table even though it was very full.
We ordered sirloin steaks with Parmesan mash and a bottle of delicious Tasmanian Pinot noir.
The steaks were cooked perfectly as we had requested and the mash was incredible.
The wine was excellent and not run of the mill.
The staff to customer ratio was not good, however they were very cheerful chatty and did very well.
We were lucky to get a table and to enjoy such a superb meal. Don't chance it - make sure you book.

“tasty”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

the resturant is up a steep flight of stairs, but the view is good looking out over the bay across the rooftops, if you want a window seat you need to book, we had steak, it was very tender and hot the chips were good, service excellent

“Great food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 25, 2013

A contemporary restaurant in the middle of St Ives. Has good views over the harbour. We had ribs and a steak - they were just brillliant. Loads of taste, cooked to perfection. The jalepiono coleslaw was great. Good service and a pleasant atmosphere.
Would recommend as a must for any meat eaters. The seafood looked equally good too.
