“Excellent steaks and wine”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 27, 2013

We hadn't booked but the waitress kindly found us a table even though it was very full.
We ordered sirloin steaks with Parmesan mash and a bottle of delicious Tasmanian Pinot noir.
The steaks were cooked perfectly as we had requested and the mash was incredible.
The wine was excellent and not run of the mill.
The staff to customer ratio was not good, however they were very cheerful chatty and did very well.
We were lucky to get a table and to enjoy such a superb meal. Don't chance it - make sure you book.

“tasty”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

the resturant is up a steep flight of stairs, but the view is good looking out over the bay across the rooftops, if you want a window seat you need to book, we had steak, it was very tender and hot the chips were good, service excellent

“Great food”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 25, 2013

A contemporary restaurant in the middle of St Ives. Has good views over the harbour. We had ribs and a steak - they were just brillliant. Loads of taste, cooked to perfection. The jalepiono coleslaw was great. Good service and a pleasant atmosphere.
Would recommend as a must for any meat eaters. The seafood looked equally good too.

“Good food, fair prices and a view!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed June 22, 2013

Called in for a coffee on a rainy Sunday lunchtime. We looked at the menu and decided to book for that evening. The main restaurant is upstairs and there are stunning views over the harbour and across to Hayle. I had crab linguine from the specials and my husband opted for fish and chips. Food, service and value for money excellent. We made a return visit during the week and opted for rotisserie chicken with piri piri sauce. Again it couldn't be faulted. Well done to all who work there - you have filled a niche in the market and provide good competition for the myriad of eateries which now abound in St Ives.
