Very good restaurant for evening or lunch, always my first port of call when in Scilly. Great location on Porthcressa Beach front. Lovely young staff, very good non alcoholic drinks.

A good selection of tapas and light snacks suitable for Lunch. Unfortunately hemmed in by big building site at the moment but still pleasant. Pre-council lead disturbance position marvellous. Will be lovely some time the middle of next year.

My partner and I had walked past during the day and thought Dibble and Grub to be a pleasant enough cafe but then we were told they did evening meal so we gave it a go - in honestly not expecting anything too special. Well we were knocked out by how good it was on so many levels - the food was absolutely fresh and beautifully cooked and the service friendly and efficient. The menu has some wonderful authentic Mediterranean dishes and the atmosphere is relaxed and yet quite special. We immediately booked again for following night and would have eaten the next two had they not been closed Sun and Mon eves. Cant wait to go back on our next holiday. Definitely compares extremely well against other restaurants charging far more on St Mary's.

Very comfortable with one of the best views in the world from the terrace (across Porthcressa Bay). Great choice of food and drink. Sorry that I only had the time to visit once. Friendly but efficient service and quite good value for money.

Dibble and Grub is one of those places that every town should have, but very few do. It is a mixture of a cafe by day, and bistro by night. During e day it sells excellent coffee, cakes, sandwiches and, what makes it special in my opinion, a delicious range of tapas. In the evening the range of tapas is still offered, as well as a well thought out specials menu. The food is fresh and beautifully cooked with interesting combinations-vegetarians are especially well catered for, which is always a bonus.
The staff are friendly and efficient and the music funky. The view out of the window is stunning...even on a wet day! It is a shame about the building work going on along Porthcressaa Promenade, but once this is finished it should enhance the location.
