    What an amazing place! We were lucky enough to be there on a calm warm summer evening with a picture perfect view over the sea. The food was tremendous. We really couldn't fault it (and we're quite demanding diners) and the service was attentive and friendly. Highly recommend.

    We received a very warm welcome. The position of the restaurant was fantastic. We had a range of excellent dishes and really enjoyed the overall experience. We will be back when next visiting Cornwall.

    We have dined here previously and thought we’d try it again to see if the food had improved. Unfortunately it had not. The staff are excellent and of course the location is amazing. The food though is overpriced and not great. My husband had the turbot which was fish of the day and it was rubbery and not nice to eat. I had fish and chips for £26 which was very greasy and not nice. The pavlova.was dry with a tiny spoonful of clotted cream and not much fruit - shockingly priced at £10. We last dined here the year before last - we won’t be back. There are so many amazing places to eat in St Ives - mostly on Porthmeor Beach!’

    Delicious food, great presentation and your staff ate absolutely superb - polite, articulate, menu and location knowledgable , enthusiastic and certainly give impression they enjoy working here. The SA lady and young man who looked after us at 6pm weds were a credit to you - handled an issue with food so well as did your chef which made us very appreciative as opposed to feeling we were in wrong which is case in many restaurants - us English are so over apologetic (!) - thank you and see you soon
