Came with the wife and daughter to St Ives for a week and ate at this place twice, the platter is a amazing! The music and atmosphere is on the money. Will be coming back here whenever I visit St Ives!

“AMAZING”
Reviewed August 21, 2013

I absolutely loved this place!!! The food was absolutely brilliant - I had a whole Sea Bream with veggies and new potatoes, it was cooked beautifully and just fell off the bone, and tasted delicious. We also had a started of Tempura prawns, very tasty as well. We were unsure from the look of the place - it is very young in feel - the decor is totally whacky, the music is dancey, and there is a club downstairs. However, everyone had a brilliant time, a group of 8 of us with 4 in our 20s and 4 in their 50s! The staff were very upbeat and friendly and the service was excellent. The price was shockingly good for such an excellent meal as well.

“Great seafood in a great atmosphere”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

The HCP has a relaxed laid back atmosphere with red green and yellow decor red check tablecloths and some really kitsch plastic chandeliers. The menu is seafood orientated without having a huge selection - and is probably all the better for that. We had the tempura prawn starters and a traditional prawn cocktail - both excellent and good sized portions. Our two kids went for the shared seafood platter and we had the fish of the day - cod. The platter was fabulous with all the dishes you expect and love and is great theatre. The cod was substantial and clearly very fresh. Well cooked food well presented and served by very friendly staff at reasonable (for St Ives!) prices this is an excellent place to eat.

“Amazing food!! Well worth a visit”
Reviewed August 20, 2013

Me and my boyfriend live locally so thought we'd try out the new talent in st.ives.
Wow! The food is fantastic, I couldn't praise it more. No thrills, excellent honest food.
I recommend the Madagascan King prawns they are sublime ! As well and the surf n turf, calamari, prawn tempura... It's all delicious!
Service was second to none. And the prices are spot on for the quality received.
Loved it and can't wait to visit again!
