“AMAZING!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

Lovely place to eat! Great food really attentive waiting staff, can't fault this place. If your in St Ives this is definitely a place to check out. Chef should be well on his was to a michelin star. We had a great waitress named Sarah who was full of local knowledge about the area and the food and drink served. The only fault we could find is that we couldn't eat any more!!!

“Wonderful restaurant nestled away from the crowds”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 3, 2013

If you enjoy well presented high quality food, then this is a must! In a different league from the majority of restaurants in St Ives. Great ambiance either on the terrace, with views across the harbour, or in the loft itself with its bright contemporary feel. The menu offers something more exciting than the norm and at very reasonable prices. The service is friendly and attentive. Very worth navigating the warren of cobbled streets to track down. Would revisit in a heart beat!

“Dissapointed”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Having visited this restaurant before it was a disappointment to find standards had lapsed,and having ordered the Mussels at £13.95 only to find they where overcooked and disintegrated on taking them out of their shells,.when we told the waitress she apologized and shrugged,their was no attempt to put the situation right,.we paid and left, will not be going back again,.

“Peaceful lunch haven”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 1, 2013

Came across the loft whilst looking for somewhere away from the hustle and bustle of the harbourfront. Lovely outside terrace with a decent lunch menu at reasonable prices. Food was well presented if a little slow arriving and tasted good. Can recommend the crab dishes which with a glass or two of chilled Zinfandel went down really well.

“Yummy food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2013 via mobile

Beautiful setting on a nice summers evening. We sat in tn terrace which was lit by fairy lights - very romantic. The atmosphere is nice and relaxed and we didn't need to book on a busy bank holiday Monday evening which is a bonus in st Ives! The food was beautifully cooked, not massive portions but enough to fill you up. Make sure you save room for desserts, they were amazing and wonderfully presented. The staff were friendly and even at the end of the night we didn't feel they were rushing us out the door. Definitely worth a visit.
