Seafood soup and simply grilled fish. Perfection. Very good service with a reasonable wine list. Very old fashioned inside with red checked tablecloths, old photos on the walls and bottles hanging from the ceiling - but then that's part of the charm.

This is my parents favourite restaurant when we are in St Ives, and my husband would travel the six hours for the battered cauliflower alone. I always find the menu a bit staid and the food predictable - but there again i just hate cauliflower!
good efficient service as always.

....as always, we have eatern many, many times here and its always good, we love the fillet steaks and the fish/sea food is ALWAYS fresh and very well cooked, the staff fun and frendly, there is a lady member of staff who has been working there for years and she is always so pleased to see old faces returning to the mermaid year after year.

we have told many friends/work mates about the mermaid over the years and they also love eating there.
the decor is fun, take time to look at the photos if you get a booth table....go eat and enjoy.

Don't miss this wonderful seafood restaurant as it is not on the main harbour front but on one of the back streets off the harbour.
A really atmospheric place with old photos of st Ives, private booths and an olde worlde feel.
We had a great Thai seafood curry which was wonderfully presented and tasted fantastic. Friendly service, very relaxed and not rushed.
Good value for money and quality fresh fish in the dishes served.
Give it a try !
