Accomodation and restaurant recommendations for January.

I have friends travelling and staying in St Ives for a night or two in January.

Can anyone recommend a restaurant and hotel or inn?

St Ives has such a lot of excellent accommodation and so many fine restaurants that singling out any in particular is very difficult. Have a look at the Where to Stay and Where to Eat sections of the town website www.stives-cornwall.co.uk

Restaurants - there are lots of good restaurants in St Ives but in my opinion the best is The Mermaid Seafood Restaurant:

http://www.mermaidstives.co.uk/

Great food, friendly atmosphere, good service.

We ate there last week to celebrate my birthday and had a wonderful evening.

The Loft is another nice restuarant with great views

Where to Stay - Pedn Olva is right in the centre of town but maybe a bit pricey. Porthminster and Tregenna Castle are a bit further out but highly rated (see reviews on Tripadvisor).

There is plenty of choice but what I would advise is - book both the restaurant and hotel asap - town will be packed out over New Year.

Hope that helps. Steve. St Ives Cornwall.

St Andrew's Street Bistro - closed for the winter when I was there the other week, alas - should be open again. It's fab.

Yes its a real shame that St Andrews Street Bistro has closed for now. Great food and atmosphere.

My daughter is even more upset as she was working as KP there !

I think they're going to re-open over Christmas and New Year though.

For restaurants I love Ocean Grill and Caffe Pasta the best, both have outstanding views of the harbour. The Mermaid is also wonderful though but it doesn't have the same views. I've never had the pleasure of eating at St Andrew's Street Bistro but believe it is fantastic.

Alfresco Cafe Bar and The Loft Restuarant are getting rave reviews on here and are must trys for my next visit to St Ives. Check out the restaurant link above on the left. They sound fantastic. I did have a look at the Alfresco Cafe Bar menu last time I was there and it did look very good.
