Arrived just after opening time (we hadn't booked) and managed to get the last table, the Mex is really busy so you need to book. Anyway food was enormous and excellent, we had nacho starters and then a mix of fajitas, burrito and quesadilla, everyone thoroughly enjoyed their food even though not everyone could eat it all. Never got chance to try deserts, eaten far too much by that stage. We had a very enjoyable meal and would certainly go again

This is the second time this year I've eaten here and considering I live about 300 miles away, I don't think that's bad going! Once again the food was lovely. Big portion but enough that you eat it all and feel nice and full. The puddings are nice but they are bought in. I would definitely return again on another visit to St Ives.

Food service slow. Not wonderfully tasty. Nice people. Expensive soft drinks and beer. Good location.

Our second year here and just as good as last year . Massive portions and the chef will try and accommodate if you want a slight change to the menu . I think bookings a must in high season . Hope to get back before the end of the week
