This restaurant is really the hidden gem of St Ives. Finest quality dining in a relaxed and welcoming atmoshphere with helpful and knowledgable staff. The menu boasts locally sourced and seasonal ingredients. Everything without exception is made from scratch. The Chef's passion is clear to see as they have an open hatch so you can see your food being cooked and are welcome to ask questions to the Chef who also made a point of recomending the perfect drink to go follow my meal. Unbelievably, the menu is priced very reasonably with starters around £5.95 and main courses around the £14 mark. I can highly recommend the sirloin steak with hand cut chips and the seabream which was so fresh and sweet. The desserts are an experience in themselves. Try the homemade Panna Cotta and ask for recommendations on which wines, drinks go with your meal. If this wasn't enough then there is also a selection of stunning artwork & pottery by local artists, which is available to buy. Enjoy!!
