“Great Steak.”
Reviewed September 18, 2012

Ate here twice during our week long stay in St.Ives (sept 2012). At our first meal we both chose the local steak and chips. It was fabulous, bordering on the best steak we had both had. Portions were big, so we did not go for a dessert. On the second visit my partner again chose the steak and I went for the Lamb and couscous. Whilst it was tasty I wished I had stuck with the steak. This time we managed a dessert of chocolate brownie, cream, strawberries and kiwi fruit which was fantastic. Extensive wine list, great views and good service. Highly recommended.

“Aspiration >> Talent”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

Ate here while staying at the hotel. My pea risotto starter tasted of nothing, though the rice was reasonably cooked. Fillet of bream main course had decently cooked fish, but accompaniments that had a bizarre set of seasonings, and no depth of flavour. Bit of a triumph of appearance over function.

“Dine with a view”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

If you are looking for a change from the busy town, the restaurant at the Garrack allows you to dine with wonderful coastal views, a good menu which changes daily and the quality of the food does not disappoint

Food & wine at the restaurant were marvellous, served by a very obliging staff. Lovely food and friendly staff were perfect for us to get some relaxation.

“Totally reliable for a consistent level of top quality food and service.”
Reviewed July 24, 2012

We have been eating out in st Ives for years and there are some lovely places to dine. When we want to celebrate however we head direct to the Garrack. The service, the atmosphere of the fine country house and the ever changing menu, make it a special evening every time. Eat off the set menu and it is real value for top local food cooked to the highest standard and presented properly. The wine list is amazing being on a corkage basis. Some top wines including the complete Camel Valley range.
