We always visit here when in St Ives and have never been dissapointed. We booked a table and it was ready when we arrived and the friendly staff are always very helpful with the menu choices if needed. With a window view and well cooked fresh fish and a good choice of sides and wines it really is worth calling... More

A pleasent restaurant situated on the first floor of the building. The only access as far as I am aware is up stairs, either from the front or rear, so people with mobility issues may have problems accessing here. Once inside the room is light and airy with lovely views across the harbour. The menu, as may be expected from... More

Whilst in St Ives, we stumbled on this lovely restaurant and due to a cancellation we managed to get a table. The staff were lovely and very accommodating. Our waitress Abi was very attentive and looked after us really well. We both had the belly pork to start which just melted in the mouth, I had mussels and fries in... More

This popular restaurant has amazing views of the harbor, the service is great and the food is scrumptious. Be sure to make a reservation, since they seem to be fully booked all the time. I had a delicious meal of fresh fish and salad, while my son had a fillet and salad. The food was well prepared and tasty. This... More

We booked a table for six, including our two grandchildren, a very warm welcome to commence with. The choice was amazing on the menu, we had crab cakes as a starter which was very well presented and dressed. The children were given their meals with the adult starters which proved a hit with both children and parents. A range of... More

Made a lunch reservation in the height of the summer. Has been my favourite meal of our holiday so far. Great table reserved in the window. Food was delicious. The staff were incredibly friendly and engaged with our kids. All in all a brilliant st Ives chippy restaurant. My only minor issue is that eating fish and chips out of... More

Everything about this restaurant is amazing!! The lobster we had was literally caught minutes from sitting at our table. It was our wedding anniversary and we had a table not quite by the window but still an amazing view. After 15mins the waitress moved us to a beautiful window seat that had wonderful views. We view the mussels for starters... More
