Return visit to the Kingfisher following a good experience a couple of years ago. This time however we chose something other than fish which proved to be a mistake. I had a Cornish pasty which appeared to have been microwaved as the pastry was soggy...More

You will not findt better fish and chips in St Ives than this place. The staff are very nice and the views of the Harbour from this first floor cafe are to die for. We go here at least twice a week when we visit...More

It's only a fish and chip restaurant but it has one of the best views of the harbour, right next to the sea and the food is good and reasonably priced. We'll come back again.

I don't know how busy they can get, there were lots of seats available when we had our lunch, so reservations wise, not sure if you need one. I had cod and my aunt had haddock. They were crisp, fresh, and the chips weren't soggy...More

We went here early evening and it was not busy. We had a lovely window table which we selected ourselves. The restaurant was very clean and the food freshly cooked, the only thing was that is is not licensed which would certainly move this restaurant...More

A case of what it says on the label! Excellent piece of cod and nice chips. Leaky t-pot but the waitress anticipated this and brought extra serviettes. Great meal.
