“Lovely food!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 27, 2013

Yes, this place will probably not attract your attention from the outside. On the inside though, you are in for a treat. Attentive, very approachable service, they really made us feel at home. And food was absolutely lovely. I cannot recommend the rump steak highly enough!

“The best sticky toffee pudding ever!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed October 5, 2013

The receptionist was rather dour and eating a sandwich as we arrived, which she carried on eating whilst we were telling her we had booked a table. The 'un'welcome aside, as soon as we entered the dining room we were treated like royalty. The timing of food service was impeccable, and every course was cooked to perfection! Presentation was awesome! The dessert finished the evening beautifully; the sticky toffee pudding was undoubtedly the best I have ever tasted! Would definitely recommend! :-)

“simply superb”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 30, 2013

We were seated on time, order taken and meal was quickly served by attentitive staff. The food was absolutly delicious, hot, served well with clean linen and tableware. All three courses were of the same high standard. We sat in the window seat and were able to see over St. Ives Bay towards Hayle and Godrevey Lighthouse. The resturant is part of the Chy an Albany Hotel, and the only small hicup was the small car park which meant quite an effort to get out. I will definately return there.

“Friendly, good value, excellent food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2013

We left it very late to find somewhere to eat with a fairly large group and were unable to find anywhere near the harbour. We tried this place on the off-chance and were delighted. The service was excellent and very friendly, the food was very good indeed and, I thought, great value for money.
