    This little restaurant is a real gem. Small, quiet, beautiful room and absolutely delicious food. We tried the six course tasting menu and every single dish was so delicious. Every dish was explained in detail by the chef and we were impressed by all of them. If I have to single out one then it was the cod. Love that they use local ingredients and everything is so fresh. Don’t miss this gem!

    Quite simply it was stunning. We had the tasting menu and accompanying wine flight and were blown away. It wasn’t stuffy or pretentious but was carefully put together using seasonal local ingredients and presented by the Head Chef Grant. The dining room is a lovely space with fantastic views out over the sea. A must visit when in St Ives

    we finished the holiday with a booking at 27, we didn't take the wine paring as we had to travel back home early hours, that said it didn't spoil the meal, 27 made our holiday a wonderful experience with food, service and venues, Grant the chef followed the waitress around explaining the detail of the produce included in each dish, and how it was prepared,the young lady serving was very good, Grant certainly knows how to choose his staff, we will be back, and look forward to another sampling menu, to enjoy not only the delights of the local food, but the creativity of the chef and his team, well done, and thank you

    A top quality locally sourced seasonal tasting menu served and described by the proprietor. Some exceptional flavour combinations. We chose some of the flight of wines offered which were interesting and good value. The shared experience in the dining room soon had guests talking to one another and asking the chef questions about how the dishes were prepared that he willingly answered. Very well worth a visit.

    Fantastic food, the tasting menu and table side service by the chef was very good indeed. Wine flight was good but poured away from the table - at the table would have been better to see the bottle. Small dining room, but very well decorated. Great sea view for about half the diners.

    Fantastic, brilliant food that locally sourced. Cosy 18 cover restaurant. Head Chef Grant is a great guy and knows his stuff. Should have at least a Michelin star. Go, have the tasty menu. No regrets, just ask for extra bread to mop up the sauce!

    The 4 of us had the 6 course tasting menu. High quality ingredients including lobster, duck crab and sea bass, all locally sourced and well presented. Wine flight was good value. Excellent service and the chef personally introduced each course. We were even given a doggy bag of lobster bisque to take home! What more could you ask for!

    Perfect dining experience. We had the food and wine tasting menu and the Head Chef brought out and explained every dish . The service was first class and when the prime window table overlooking the beach became available they offered to move us without even asking. The food and wine was just incredible.

    Beautiful food, superbly served. Lovely dining room. We eat as four people, all having the taster menu, but two vegetarians, one with gluten intolerance. We were well catered for and the chef explained every course. I’d recommend the flight of wine with the meal too, really, really good.
