Dined here on 29th July to celebrate my 40th birthday with my partner. The cafe is a favourite of ours and we visit every time we come to St Ives. As always the food was delicious. The service was alright but not what we've come to expect; It was only little things such as it being quite clear that it would be a chore for the waitress to change a main course order straight after the original choice had been stated, or difficulty in gaining the staff's attention. We were not the only people to feel disappointment that night as we overheard other tables complaining or being apologised to for long waiting times. We still had a lovely evening and would still look forward to returning, hopefully this was just a bad evening in the height of the season.
