We love this place as slightly off the beaten track and very laid back atmosphere(mind you so has most of St Ives) with excellent food. The staff were very friendly and looked after us well

A Perfect place to spend our last night before returning home

Sat outside and had lunch here on a beautiful October day. Great location. Great atmosphere. Very friendly and attentive staff - nothing was too much trouble. Superb food.Try the fish chowder, fried squid and the open crab sandwich with aioli - all delicious. Good value. Highly recommended.

Lovely little beach cafe/restaurant. Had a nice meal there in the evening. Portions were a little on the small side, but nicely presented.
Prices around average for St Ives. Mains = £13.95 upwards

A lovely location and great food, the menu is very varied and we have never been disappointed. Great views and we sat outside even on a chilly night as the outside space with heaters were very effective

We lunched here practically every day during a week's holiday this summer. The beach is brilliant for children and families as it is small and contained. The cafe overlooks the beach with great views. The staff are really friendly despite the small children racing around and getting in their way. The food is great and consistently good. The price tag is fair. We loved it.
