We make sure we visit this restaurant when we stay in St Ives. The menu is always exciting and delicious and the view stunning. You can watch the sun set on Porthminster beach and see the little boats bobbing in the bay with Godrevy lighthouse in the distance. A truly special experience.

The setting is fantastic before you even sit down to taste the food - Porthminster beach is beautiful. The staff are very friendly and helpful without being over powering. All of the food was excellent and beautifully presented. The scallops with the mackerel were amazing but the star was the deconstructed Pimms dessert. It was one of the best things that I have ever eaten and booked straight away to go back on Friday as we are only here for a week. Book to come here - you won't regret it.

We found the café staff to be very friendly and welcoming, attentive without being intrusive and had a good knowledge of the produce and ingredients used. The food quality was excellent, very well presented, if a little pricey and we found the portions to be rather small. However for the total experience of literally dining on the beach, it is a must whilst you are away on holiday. Do book, as the café was rather busy. We will visit again.

Lovely down on the beach. Bit pricey but worth a go. You need to book! there is an outside terrace for good weather but inside is nice too!

Lovely place, excellent food and generally good value. Had the fish and chips which was one of the best I've had. I'd say booking is essential as it was very busy, and with good reason
