“Incredible views and food!”
Reviewed January 15, 2013

We've been dining in The Beach for the last 15 years and have never been disappointed. The staff are very welcoming and will meet all your needs. The restaurant has always been very child friendly and this is why it's my first choice of restaurant every time I visit St Ives. The food has always been excellent and the choice of wine very good. Try to reserve a table before you visit as it can get very busy. Lovely contemporary but cosy atmosphere too. Can't wait to visit again in 2013!

“New Years Eve 2012”
Reviewed January 2, 2013

We have visited The Beach on several occasions with both family and friends (including young children) and the food and service have always been second to none. Chose this for our first New Years Eve trip to St Ives and once agin we were blown away by the quality of food and friendly service. Although busy, the team could not do enough for us and we had a window seat with the best view of the fireworks. Have been to many other places at special times and the service and food has been disappointing but not here.
Everything was to the same high standard as always

“:)”
Reviewed November 25, 2012 via mobile

We went to the Beach because the Coast has closed down completely and the Ocean Grill was closed for winte and may i say that we were pleasantly surprised. Food plentiful, staff friendly and a lovely atmosphere. Yes I would come here again and full marks for staying open off season, a lot of places have just thrown in the towel and closed down for winter. Thank you :)

“Brilliant....just brilliant”
Reviewed November 24, 2012

We went to St Ives to celebrate a 60th birthday and chose the Beach to host the main party for the night of the birthday. We were slightly worried as there were 18 in the party all of varying ages and varying food requirements. We need not have worried in the slightest. The staff were just fantastic, nothing was too much trouble. They organised everything for us from decorating the entire table to informing us where to go to get the balloons blew up ( after I had refused their kind offer of blowing them up themselves..there were a lot!). The food was top quality, hot,beautifully presented and all came together, which is no mean feat with 18 people to cater for. Everyone got their order and were treated like royalty. The party went on long after the staff should have gone home even after I offered to end it if they needed us gone. The setting is fantastic over-looking the sea but for us it is the staff that make it. They went out of their way to make the evening a success and a night to remember. I cant praise them highly enough. If you are in St Ives just go and try it for yourselves. You wont be disappointed and you will go back.
