Great service, lovely food and cool place!!! Loved every minute!!
Not a huge menu to choose from for an evening meal but still lovely
Friendly and knowledgeable staff. Excellent ambience and a fabulous choice of draft and bottled beers ( as well as spirits, cider, and hot/cold drinks).
Was doubly impressed with their Covid precautions......well spaced tables and no mask, no entry!
Big, succulent mussels. Perfectly cooked in a lovely Belgian beer broth. Excellent selection of Belgian beers. Fast friendly service and reasonably priced. Can't comment on dessert as I was completely stuffed! Highly recommended.
Mussels were lovely. Portions were excellent. Great selection of drinks. Recommend.
Not brilliant, expensive for what it was and food wasn’t good. It’s a very limited menu on the food side but obviously brilliant for beers
Great evening and food. Really enjoyed the restaurant
Excellent food with very attentive staff in hand .
We thoroughly enjoyed our visit and would highly recommend this place!
Our recent visit to Bier Huis was a really good one. All of the food was of good quality, freshly cooked and cooked well. Portion sizes were generous. The tables are well spaced and of a good size so there is no feeling of being overcrowded or cramped. We are very happy to recommend it as a good place to go for couples, families or groups of any age range. The atmosphere is lively but not too much so. The waiting staff are exceptional. They are happy to help and are attentive but not too much so. We will return as soon as we are back in the area.
Lovely meat balls and brilliant chowder - great staff and service
Really excellent experience as always. The new manager (Jess, I think) introduced herself to us and made sure we had a great evening. She was knowledgeable about food and more importantly the extensive and superb beer menu. We’ve visited for the last three years and will definitely return again 😄🍺🍺
I was a little disappointed with the Fish & Chips, after having such amazing Fish & Chips elsewhere in Cornwall during our hols. Staff were very friendly and waffles were lovely.
Really great beer choices, fabulous mussels and waffles.
Staff were very welcoming, hope to return soon!
Enjoyed our meal very much & also my fruit beer. Would recommend.
We enjoyed our dining experience at Bier Huis, we had a few issues with our order but was quickly rectified by the staff, ordered a large moules in thai sauce but after first presented with moules marinere I then received the correct dish but half the size! so I asked for some bread to make more of the meal, when we received the bill I was charged £4.50 for 3 pieces of regular white bread, a bit steep! We will return as we enjoyed the ambience and the food was very tasty, great choice of beers too.
Unfortunately if you arrive before 5pm the food menu is quite reduced. Went there specially for the moules but as my booking was for 4.30pm I couldn't order it! End up just having a beer and a sandwich (Brie and caramelised onion), which was OK but nothing extraordinary. Unfortunately also due to covid there is very short staff so guess that's why they don't have the kitchen open before 5pm.
A really unique place, authentic, even down to some of the furniture which has been shipped from Belgium, the beer and food were excellent, great atmosphere and exceptional service, we are lucky enough to be booked in again later this week, it definitely won't disappoint!
Very slow to get meal but understand staffing issues.
My mother had the mussels and was violently sick 3hours later and has been very poorly since. She hadn’t eaten anything else that day or the day before that would make her that ill.
Dear MartynP, Im so sorry to read that your mother has been ill. I am happy to report, however, that it wouldnt of been our mussels. Due to the nature of the farming, washing and preparation of mussels; we would not have made just your mother ill, but our whole Bier Huis. As we have not had a recall from our suppliers, or any other reportings of illness- I can reassure you that the mussels were safe. Additonally, the incubation period of food-borne viruses are around 8 hours, not 3. Jess, GM.
The Buddha bowl was to scrumptious and very filling.
Service was ok. Although it wasn’t their fault. The waitress was very attentive and apologetic as it appeared they were short staffed.
We would go back there again as the food was very good.
Lovely food beer and staff. The mussels were great.
Once again we absolutely loved our experience here. The staff are so friendly and helpful. The kids had the amazing waffles and we had moules et frites and Bier obviously. We will definitely be back😊
The best schnitzel ever - so buttery and more-ish!
Food was delicious and great selection of drinks
Superb service and delicious food not to mention the beer!
First time and won’t be the last, really good selection of beers so nice in these days of trendy lagers, food choices limited but good and tasty. Would recommend especially to beer lovers,
Fantastic little venue, great food, great atmosphere, amazing choice of beer and excellent staff. Would definitely recommend and would definitely return
Fab atmosphere great food and drink lovely staff. Great location
Food and drinks were fantastic, large choice on the menu of both. Lovely friendly staff, lovely decor inside. Good central location. We visited for lunch and it was so good we would have returned again for dinner if we hadn’t got other plans. Will happily recommend to anyone who is visiting St Ives
Very nice setting and food. Staff very attentive and polite.
Beer tasters great idea.
Really lovely experience - great food, great atmosphere and friendly service. A great find that we wouldn’t have discovered without Open Table.
Dear NoMoreFishFingers, I'm so glad our online booking system has helped you find us and your visit was worthwhile! I hope we get to see you again soon. Kind Regards, Jess General Manager
Visited the Bier Huis Grand Cafe whilst staying in St Ives. The restaurant is beautifully decorated and the food was amazing. The chorizo mussels were so tasty and the meatballs my husband had looks equally as good. I went for the beer flight, which id definitely recommend, if I like me your not sure what beer you would like to try.
Delicious food and good service!
Dear Anonymous, Thank you for this 5 star review-I hope we see you again soon! Kind Regards, Jess General Manager
Having drunk here on multiple occasions, we ate there for the first time in July 2021. Our table was ready for us at the time we booked, and the only slight negative was a 15 minute wait before anyone came near us to take our drinks order. Apart from that little niggle, we had a lovely time. Good beer, great food and attentive service for the rest of our visit.
Dear JosieM, Apologies for the slow start but thank you for this 5 star review and recommendation! I hope we get to see you again very soon. Kind Regards, Jess General Manager
We only ate hummus and pita bread which was very good. We went there for the Belgium beer. Again good. Jenniver excellent. Service good
Dear Redsaddler, I've passed on your lovely comments to Emily, she really appreciated them. I do hope we get to see you again soon. Kind Regards, Jess General Manager
We went for lunch whilst in St Ives for my partners birthday and we loved it! Staff were really helpful, nothing was too much trouble! We will definitely return

Dear Anonymous, Thank you for this 5 star review and lovely words! I hope we get to see you again very soon. Kind Regards, Jess General Manager
The food was fantastic, social distancing wasn’t as good as it should have been!
The service from the young girls was very good, however the young lad didn’t have a clue what he was doing and the older lady was very rude and actually ruined our meal by telling us to shut our little boy up because he was doing everyone’s head in! Which was not the case at all he was being a little noisy because we was bored and tired!
Dear Anonymous, I'm glad you enjoyed your food but I'm sad to learn your experience has been marred. Its a sensitive subject, but we have a duty to the rest of the Bier Huis to ensure all our guests are having a pleasant experience. I will investigate further and if necessary provide customer service training on how best to approach this evocative situation, should it occur again. We have new staff learning the ropes so we appreciate your patience while they are in training. Jess GM
