We returned from dinner only moments ago, and I had to jump on TA to share about this incredible restaurant. Not only was the food PERFECT, the decor was lovely and the staff were fantastic. We could not have felt more welcomed or well-fed in St. Ives. I came with my husband, 80 year old father, and his partner. Each... More

Had a super meal for four, served efficiently and by very friendly staff. Always worth mentioning the service in st.ives in the height of summer as its not always the best; but this is one place they excel. Beautiful starter of crab and mushroom with bechemel sauce, followed by a lovely monkish tail and Asian salad affair... Very very nice... More

My wife had the steak and thought it was lovely. Mine was the sea bass, which was OK. The staff were very pleasant and attentive. Décor simple and very clean. On the expensive side but would probably return.

Went to The Black Rock last year and this on visits to the St Ives area. I am almost unwilling to describe just how good the food is as it will only encourage others to visit this lovely restaurant and make it harder to book a table next time. Beautifully cooked and presented food served expertly: no more to say!

This was a very nice place! The food was excellent and the service as well as the ambience was very relaxed and friendly - but still very attentive. We (two adults and three teenagers) all had different choices from the menu and we were all very pleased. The service was swift and efficient but most importantly the food was very... More
