    Excellent food, lovingly prepared. As you might expect from a Michelin rated restaurant. Ambiance was great, relaxed atmosphere without too much background noise. Great views out over the beach if you get a good table Only quibble was a minor issue with the vouchers that we had for the restaurant as the team had no information that the vouchers were valid.

    Definitely would recommend. The food and service are always amazing. We have never had a bad meal and book every time we are in St Ives. Such lovely staff who go out of their way to make you feel welcome. My favourite is the fish Chowder which is delicious. Last week I also had the Hake which was amazing. Book a table you won’t regret it.

    Booked a few weeks in advance for an anniversary dinner. We were placed in a corner table and were advised that we were not able to move to a window table as someone else had booked before us, even though the table was empty for the 1st 30 minutes that we were there. I had put on the booking form that it was our anniversary but I'm not sure why this was asked for as there was no mention of this on arrival. However, the food was lovely and the staff polite. I would visit again.

    The view of a sunlit harbour while enjoying a glass of cold wine was only the start of an excellent evening. The way we were welcomed by the friendly staff made us know we were going to enjoy our evening. The choice of food made sure there was something to suit everyone. Our fish choice was excellent We were so impressed that we booked again before we left.

    The restaurant is quite small and homely and the staff are very friendly. The menu offers a wide variety of dishes including several fish options. We ate there three times so tested a good number of them and all were excellently prepared and presented. Portion sizes were good so we refrained from testing the desserts. Value for money was very good.

    Relatively simple food done very well. It's perhaps no surprise in St. Ives, but the seafood and fish offers are varied and beautifully fresh. The staff were lovely and the view - if you are lucky enough to be seated by the panoramic window, is absolutely stunning!

    We visited as a couple & I had pre ordered a bottle of Champagne for our table as we were celebrating, I will say the service, view, food, cleanliness, was EXCELLENT…however they put a £13 service charge on our overall bill which was already quite high due to the bottle of champagne but this wasn’t made clear & hubby didn’t check properly so it may pay for the staff too point this out, we would have given a service tip anyway but just not that much….
