Friendly atmosphere and reasonably priced for lovely quality food. This lovely Bistro is not on the Harbour front so you need to go back a few streets near the Lifeboat station. Step inside to appreciate the ambience and then book your table if wanted for a friday or saturday night, then just ENJOY.

Worth heading slightly off the beaten track to find this great restaurant. Eaten there many times but never written a review so putting that right now. We could happily eat everything on the menu every time we've visited and on one occassion almost managed it between four of us. If you are a visitor to St Ives you should make a point of eating here.

Really good menu, and wine list.
Beautifully cooked food! Music a little loud but was turned down, without asking.
Good value too!

We have just booked a table for August when we return to St Ives. We dined here 3 times last August and had a great time on each occasion. The food & wine is excellent and great value; service attentive & friendly; ambience relaxed ideal for couples and families. This is a real gem and I can't give enough praise. Can't wait for our next visit.
