“Great food”
Reviewed August 6, 2013 via mobile

We found this place just walking around, a block back,from the main thoroughfare. We had some excellent food (mine was pork on an apple mash) and local cider and wine. Service was very friendly.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

We ate here on the last day of our holiday and I can really say we left the best until last! We would have visited a few times during our holiday had we known how good it was. We had our 3 children (8and under) with us and it wasn't a problem at all, we were made to feel very welcome. The food was delicious and the staff were very attentive. I must say I was a little worried about previous reviews but I'm so glad it didn't put us off going. If you're visiting st.Ives this restaurant it a must!

“Excellent Meal and Service”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

We were a family party of 7 who ate on a Friday evening. Excellent Food and Service - we experienced none of the service related issues mentioned by earlier contributors. Service was professional, efficient and friendly and the room at the back was light and airy. The food was excellent - we went for the fixed price 2 course menu with us trying a number of the different starters and mains. In particular the sardine starter and the Haddock and Pork Belly mains were worthy of a mention. The wine was very reasonably priced too. Our only regret was after the starter and mains none of us had room for a dessert.

I would definitely recommend as a place to eat when in St Ives - family friendly, excellent food and service (and good value for money too). Can't ask for more!

“Loved it”
Reviewed July 30, 2013

Stumbled across this restaurant by chance and we loved it! Unlike some other reviews we found the service to be excellent-very friendly and efficient. Food was fantastic-we had the crab gnocchi and the prawn and chorizo skewers as starters and the red pesto cod and shellfish as mains. All beautifully cooked.

“Food quite good - service poor”
Reviewed July 30, 2013 via mobile

We went to this restaurant as it was nearby another one we tried to get in to but was fully booked.

Firstly food - starters were pretty average, squid was a little chewy and the scallop salad was quite small and nothing special, however the main course were absolutely fantastic, very tasty and presented excellently.

Service - it seemed the waitresses were more interested in gossiping with each other and one at one point during the evening and sat at a adjoining table reading magazine. Also we felt a little conscious as one of the waitresses was staring at us :/.

Servicewise they did what they had to do but it seemed to be forced.

Conclusions: good food but a lot better places offering excellent customer service and food.
