“Fabulous location”
Reviewed December 20, 2012

We only popped in to this restaurant for a coffee before we went home and we were extremely disapointed that we hadn't eaten as all the food coming past looked lovely and the location was fabulous.

I have now read the reviews and am determined to make it next time!

“Fabulous Lunch”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Wow - brilliant food and service!

Especially of you are wanting to go to a high end restaurant and are virtually vegan - I was treated so well and the food was an absalout pleasure to eat. The gentleman serving us had been briefed fully and knew exactly waht I couldn't eat without being prompted - magic!

My husband would especially recommend the chocolate blondie for pudding and I just loved my halloumi and lentil dish,

Cant wait to head back again!

Thanks Elizabeth and Alan, Wadebridge

“The best meal I've had in a long time!”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

A beautiful meal on a Saturday night in December. Was not expecting it to be busy but the atmosphere was buzzy, the menu great, the food delicious and the service brilliant. Will definitely visit again when next in St Ives. Great for any time of the day. Fantastic views!

“Lovely food, lovely view”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

This place is a firm favourite with both locals and the hordes of tourists who visit St Ives. We have been going there for years and it has never disappointed. The food is fresh, inventive and as local as possible - a great combination. The fish and chips is a perennial favourite with other members of the family, but I prefer to go for the specials or things like the crab cakes (starters portion is quite large!) and the squid. Their wine list and beer offerings have also improved over the years. We go there as often as we can. Oh - and the view over the beach and the harbour isn't bad either!

“Wonderful”
Reviewed November 28, 2012

The food at this restaurant is amazing, so different to any other restaurant we have visited. A wonderful menu with plenty of fresh seafood light and lovely. Book early and sit and watch the ocean, just magic.
