This was easily the best meal I had while on holiday in Cornwall. The restaurant is really well decorated and the view from our seat was beautiful, you could actually see the tide rolling in!
The food was even better than the views and the monkfish curry was incredible. The service was speedy and the waitress very friendly.
The Loft could be missed as it's hidden round the corner and off the main streets, but it's well worth finding it as it's a gem.

The breakfast was very poor. The scrambled eggs with crab looked like it had been microwaved and was runny. One measly slice of toast, the garlic was missing from the dish. Had about a teaspoon of crab.

My siblings' breakfasts were missing black puddings and hash browns. When this was brought to the attention of the waitress, she returned with bubble and squeak and no hash browns.

Couldn't even apologise and offer some kind of a reduction in the bill which came to £45 for 4 breakfasts. They need to wake up or they'll go under.

What a pleasant oasis in the otherwise grumpy resturaunt town of st ives. Buggies, children and pets were no problem. The food was excellent with service I could not fault, helpful and attentive.
I'd recommend it to anyone who enjoys good food well prepared seved in a relaxed atmosphere.

We enjoyed the views, the service and the food - I had an especially beautifully prepared piece of pan fried cod - but The Loft didn't quite do it for us and hit excellent.

There weren't many diners on a Saturday night, so the atmosphere was a bit lacking, and the menus feel cheap with breakfast, lunch and dinner all in the same cover inside plastic sleeves. It's little things like that which meant we were pleased but prevented us being overwhelmed and meant we moved on somewhere a bit livelier for after dinner drinks.

Possibly the best Sunday lunch I have ever had !

And at sixty quid for 3 courses including two drinks and a bottle of wine, wasn't expensive for two.....
