Fantastic food and the best location 5 🌟
Absolutely delicious - would thoroughly recommend
A beautiful position. A good welcome but then service poor and ambivilant
Beautiful and stylish beach setting - felt like we were in Australia! Service very good and accommodated us so well. We asked to move tables as our dog was being a bit temperamental as there was a dog on the table next to I and we we didn’t want to annoy other customers and this was no problem. The food was amazing, especially the squid, surf and turf and the deep fried banoffee. Will definitely go again (without the pup!)
Food, setting and staff are just amazing! We will be back!!
Service & food outstanding the location is amazing thanks to all the hard working staff. The Peach Bellini
Was a real treat.
Absolutely lovely evening
Very happy to be able to
Sit out on the deck with heaters and see the rainbow
Lovely service, delicious food
We will be back
Sent back my surf and turf as tough and too fatty.
First time we asked without booking our greeting from a employee wasn’t very pleasant, so we decided not to give up and to book online . So glad we did our experience was very welcoming and very pleasant staff . Excellent breakfast and a great view looking out to sea .
Beautiful dinner setting, had i of known I would of Pre booked weeks in advance. Would of loved to of had dinner there overlooking the beach but instead we did manage to have breakfast and it was just as beautiful and peaceful. Very pretty, good service and value for money. Will definitely book again when we next visit St Ives.
Though we'd booked a table, on arrival there was confusion as it seemed we didn't have a booking. When I showed the confirmation email i turned out that someone else had been given our table. We were given a different table with apologies and the staff were very friendly and professional.
The food was exceptional but so were the prices. We've always come here every visit but it will no longer be a "must" despite the great location, which is a shame.
We'd definitely recommend it if money is no object.
Second visit and again brilliant. In my opinion the best place to eat in St Ives. A sensational view, great service and the food was amazing, the monk fish curry was beautiful. Not the cheapest place to eat but worth every penny - a real experience and indulgent treat
Highly recommended for an excellent breakfast with a stunning view
good experience and good service.
We were lucky to visit on a beautiful night, we sat outside under the outdoor heater and has the wonderful views to enjoy. Beautifully cooked and well presented fresh Fish, very pleasant staff, good drinks and chilling background music. We would highly recommend and shall definitely visit again.
Amazing staff, amazing food. Can't wait to come back!
Fantastic food, cooked beautifully, the sauces with the seafood were so tasty and well prepared to give that real seafood flavour. The service was great and really friendly and we sat out on the balcony overlooking the beach which was a real pleasure
The food here was incredible!! The best desserts we’ve ever had.
We ate here for our honeymoon and were given a free cook book on the table on arrival. A very nice touch.
Would return 100%!
Phenominal location, customer service, and food. It really is a special place with amazing staff.
Fabulous location by the beach, stylish and confident
The food was exceptional, the staff were amazing and the location was perfect.
Great food and service good location right on beach front
It's very difficult to fault any aspect of the Porthminster Beach Cafe. Great food and service are standard. You might, as we did, bump into a celeb too!
Fantastic location with breathtaking view. Staff happy and friendly. Our whitebait starter was excellent. Main course of fish and chips average at best.
The food, drink, atmosphere and service was great, but it is very expensive.
As always… fantastic food and wonderfully relaxed dining with great views… life does not get better than this!
High priced average food, doesn’t compare well with the other 4 restaurants we’ve visited this week
We ate on the terrace and really enjoyed the beautiful setting and great breakfast, there's a varied and delicious breakfast menu.
We were welcomed warmly and taken care of solendidly!
Very tasty, beautifully presented food in a stunning, relaxed environment.
Food, service, views all amazing as always this place never disappoints
My favourite restaurant in the country. Always outstanding, original flavours, local produce and fantastic staff. Due to Covid, I haven’t been for two years but Guy remembered my name and was so welcoming. I’ve been eating here for over twenty years!
Superb breakfast in a stunning setting. Friendly and attentive service.
As always great service, fab food and awesome views. Shout out to Isabelle who looked after us so well.
This is a must visit - whether you're in the area or passing by, this is worth a stop. Amazing food and well worth the price. Service was first class.
