Great menu choice, lovely staff and outstanding food.
Delicious food, lovely service and great value in a very romantic setting! Really enjoyed our dinner here, would highly recommend for a change of scenery from the harbour
A number of so-called “restaurants” in St Ives are vastly overrated. The Cellar Bistro is far and above the majority for sensible menu, lovely staff and beautifully cooked food. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this restaurant for a thoroughly pleasant eating experience. Most of the others couldn’t “hold a candle” to it. Keep it up !
Great meal in a good location, perfect for couples.
Perfect holiday atmosphere
I had the hummus with bread and oil hummus was lovely and could tell it was freshly made amd I had the seared seabass with rosemary potatoes and it was nothing less than perfect I’d highly recommend any of these at cellar bistro fantastic place and in the centre of st Ives with lovely staff and great atmosphere
Really lovely food here. Excellent quality. I enjoyed the goats cheese starter and the Hake with herbal crust.
Staff were really friendly and welcoming. I would definitely recommend.
Great food and service. Lovely speaking with the owner and staff, friendly and welcoming. Thank you for a super evening.
Friendly service, great food, highly recommend
Excellent experience, fantastic service, delicious food and we barely had to wait for any of the courses. Will be coming back!
Lovely restaurant - one of the more expensive in st Ives but so friendly with spot on service and amazing food!
Amazing highly recommended. The food was outstanding and the service was impeccable
Enjoyed a lovely dinner last night at The Cellar Bistro. They were fully booked for the evening and you could tell the staff were very busy but yet still made our dinner a lovely experience. Our waitress was very friendly and the food is delicious.
Highly recommend a visit when in St Ives.
Lovely food, friendly staff, good selection of drinks, we ate here twice this week and both times were worth every penny. If we visit St Ives again we will definitely eat at The Cellar again.
lovely food , good service though very busy....we shared a pudding & then cheese board def recommend
A very warm and professional welcome. The service was brilliant and the staff extremely friendly and polite. A wonderful evening. Would definitely go again.
First time here and it didn’t disappoint. Everything about it was great! We both chose the Hake fillet for main and it was truly the most delicious dish I’ve eaten in a very long time. Staff were absolutely super too.
Delicious food and really friendly staff. Always visit when we come to St Ives.
Excellent all round experience. Lack of soft furnishings resulted in elevated noise levels. Staff very attentive and friendly.
The food was excellent and would revisit on this basis.
However they appeared to be under-staffed and the service was very slow overall.
Beautiful food in a friendly and candlelit atmosphere! The meals are so well crafted and perfected!
Fantastic food and friendly and professional staff - what more can you ask for?
Great tapas and Sangria. Nice little place, hidden away.
Another great meal at Cellar Bistro, great atmosphere and amazing food!
Great restaurant with brilliant fresh tasty food. We were stuck on a beach and was late for our dinner but the restaurant were super flexible and understanding. Would highly recommend if you are going to Cornwall or st Ives.
Fantastic place! Lovely welcome on arrival, seated straight away. Food and drink amazing, fresh and flavoursome. Staff are really friendly, you can tell it's a family business. We liked it so much that we booked to visit the following night in the Secret Tapas Cellar. Highly recommend!
With a coeliac in our party, Cellar Bistro was a dream. The menu had gluten free dishes marked and there was a good choice even thought the menu is quite short (which is a positive in itself in my view). By coincidence the waitress was also a coeliac and so when she talked of making sure there was no cross contamination it was music to our ears! We had never seen gluten free calamari on a restaurant menu before so that was a must. The restaurant has found a way of making at least half of its dishes suitable for coeliacs and those following a gluten free diet. We ALL thoroughly enjoyed our meal and had 3 courses which is rare for us. The staff were very friendly and attentive and the basement location welcoming and calm in a very busy St. Ives. Highly recommend.
Attentive service, nice atmosphere and environment. Food amazing, best meal of the week.
First time dining here. Lovely tasty food. However, none of the five of us wanted a starter. We were informed that because of this and the food cooked from fresh it would be awhile. We were quite happy with this. Our booking was for 6pm, we were served our food at 7.10. Which is far too long to wait. Who would wait so long if initially being told your food will be over an hour! Others around us were moaning to each other too. Admittingly the staff seemed rushed all the time. They were lovely staff. Hopefully it’s just a blip. I don’t like being negative, but it shouldn’t make a difference just because we didn’t have starters. I will definitely go back when I’m next in St Ives.
Fantastic meal. Recommend the Hake and the Steak. Enjoyed chorizo as a starter.
Good food and great service. A fairly small menu but everything was done well.
Superb food served by friendly staff in a pleasant atmosphere
Very good quality food, sticky toffee pudding delicious friendly staff all round lovely evening
Fabulous food, the hake was exceptional, and really great service all evening. Highly recommended.
Lovely Restaurant and ambience
Friendly and helpful staff
Would highly Recommend
Quality dining, friendly attentive staff, great ambience, we had a lovely evening.
The crusted hake was absolutely delicious. Hope to be back again soon.
Lovely friendly and efficient service. Simple menu but all fresh ingredients, well cooked and presented. A little more grown up than other seaside restaurants but don’t hesitate, even with a young family. They’ll look after you
We had a wonderful meal at this gorgeous tucked away restaurant on our last night in St Ives. If we had been staying for longer we would definitely have gone back for seconds! The ambience was perfect, the staff ( Josephine especially) were just lovely and the food was excellent. Well done all of you and thank you so much we WILL be back x Anna and Andy McMullan x
