Came upon this lovely restaurant by chance. Great catch of the day. Very friendly service and even a bowl of water for the dog. I would definitely visit again.

Lovely little restaurant with friendly, warm and efficient staff. I had the charred mackerel for my starter which was very good, followed by a perfectly cooked fillet steak.

Cocktails are lovely as well,although the one my brother-in-law was slightly on the small side in a titchy glass. The stickly chocolate pudding was to die for,best I ever had. One small comment...my sister is a vegetarian and they only have the one... More

We chose the loft after seen the good reviews on trip advisor and we weren't disappointed. We were celebrating our wedding anniversary while visiting st Ives. Service was great and the food was beautifully presented and was very tasty. I had the belly pork which was cooked to perfection. Would recommend and will visit next time we're in st Ives.

Nice setting. As I was with my family we stuck to one course due to prices of food and drink. Food was good though. Wandered off to have our desert / ice cream elsewhere.
