As I'd just arrived in st Ives I was firmly in fish and chips mode. Crispy beer battered cod, chips and mushy peas with a glass of Sauvignon blanc. Lovely! To get a 5 slightly less oil would do the trick and perhaps the mushy peas could have a little more flavour? Salt? Mint? Anyway love it here regardless.

We recently stayed near st Ives for a few days and wanted a nice meal out with our 2 young children. We had seen reviews for this restaurant and liked that it seemed to be in a good setting with great views and it claimed to be family friendly. We booked in advance and we were not disappointed. When we arrived the restaurant was fairly quiet and we were given window seats overlooking the harbour. The menu has great choice. We all opted for fish dishes and the food was lovely freshly prepared and piping hot. The staff were friendly and welcoming. We had starters and main courses although couldn't manage a dessert. Would definitely eat here again if we go back to st ives

We decided to test out a portion of chips from the Beach Restaurant Take Away on the harbour and board outside claimed best fish and chips in St Ives but after trying the chips we would disagree as there were other Fish and Chip take outs which were a lot better quality. Chips were very dry and always shut quite early at night.

My family and I ate here on the 6th April. We had read the reviews on Trip Advisor and were not disappointed.

We had not booked and when we arrived the restaurant was busy. We were welcomed and a table found as a party of four had failed to arrive. We had a great view of the port.

Service was excellent and my children were able to select dishes that were not the usual bland chicken nuggets and chips as the menu catered for younger guests.

We all enjoyed a sea food platter and when the main courses arrived the children enjoyed trying the adult dishes. This is due to the presentation of the dishes that had our curious children wanting to try them.

The bill was less than we paid for an average Indian meal the night before. The dining experience at the beach was above average. I recommend that if you are thinking of going, book in advance

Was really impressed with the food here- one of us is vegetarian and it was a seafood restaurant mainly, thought the veggie options may not be so good- but the vegetarian pasta was amazing!
Not cheap but not bad value for such nice food and lovely view overlooking the beach. Service was very friendly.
