“Nice location Small fish portions”
Reviewed June 15, 2014

All in all worth a visit The addition of fried sweet potato garnish was a nice touch Toilet ok but shared Not keen on this idea especially for children Fish portion too small so would say a bit expensive at £15 per head with 2 out of 4 on tap water and the others having only 2 beers between them. Would go again but would have a pie as probably cheaper. Very nice young man serving us.

“Worth paying extra for seagull protection!”
Reviewed June 14, 2014

My sister once had a seagull dive on her head trying to get her icecream in St Ives, so be warned; they say don't feed the seagulls so the seagulls help themselves.
Bearing this in mind and following the advice of previous "tripadvisors", we were more than happy to pay the premium to sit inside the restaurant and got a window seat with a view of the harbour.
(many thanks to Rick Stein at Padstow for kick-starting a trend of modern,friendly restaurants attached to "chippies").
The portion of cod and chips wasn't massive, but this was reflected in the price and side servings of minted peas and garlic mayonnaise really made the meal, washed down with a very civilised glass of white wine.Much better than a wooden fork and dodging seagulls.
The staff were very friendly and the restaurant/amenities well-maintained.

“:-)”
Reviewed June 10, 2014 via mobile

I'd deacribe it has "fish and chips with an edge" the edge being that the food was very tasty and not greasy, as it can sometimes be in a fish and chips shop.
Friendly staff.
Nice views over-looking the sea (when sat near the front).
Nice selection of wines available too, as well as other drinks.
Great value. Prompt sercice!
Worth going to :)

“Still serving great fish and chips”
Reviewed June 8, 2014

We've eaten here before and our opinion hasn't changed after a second visit. They serve really good fish and chips and the restaurant itself is very smart but still informal. Prices are excellent value for a sit down place on the harbour. I especially liked the variety of fish (cod, hake, mackerel, haddock) and the the option for it to be grilled rather than battered. We didn't try any sides but they also do salads, mushy peas, curry sauce etc.
