Porthminster Kitchen serves up a refreshing, playful take on Cornish cuisine, introducing a menu of smaller plates and lighter options which combine global flavours, fresh local ingredients and creative cooking.

We have stripped out much of what is unnecessary; dairy and gluten take a backseat in favour of fresh and exciting textures and flavours.

Porthminster Kitchen enjoys awe-inspiring panoramic views from its location in the heart of St Ives. From your vantage point above the harbour, escape the hustle and bustle and relax on our sun-drenched terrace, or gaze out from huge windows and take in the 180° view.

    My sister-in-law and I both chose the vegetarian curry, but would only rate it 3*, compared to the Indonesian vegetarian curry we had enjoyed at the Porthminster Beach Cafe only 3 days earlier, which was 5*. Our experience was that it lacked both flavour and presentation in comparison. It was strange also, as five from my family had celebrated a daughter's 40th birthday last November with the same vegetarian curry and it had been 5*.

    Initial greeting not very welcoming. However one lovely waitress accommodated our request to sit outside as soon as a seat became available. We sat outside in the sunshine on the balcony with views to die for. The garlic bread was superb. Roast beef & veg all good, but the gravy sweet. I prefer a meaty gravy with beef. Decent portion size & nicely presented meals. The delicious NZ Sauvignon Blanc was good value. Service was efficient with most staff members really friendly and accommodating. The desserts were pieces of art & tasted good too. Well worth a visit.

    Another great meal. Saved the curry for our last night and my wife rated the fish and chips as the best ever. As always heart professional service, amazing views and always great food. We only managed one course this time as we had breakfast. A shame because the starters and desserts are wonderful but we didn’t want to waste food

    Great food, service, atmosphere...definitely recommend! The little touches mean an exceptional experience by providing full bottles of tap water without having to specify and replacing the ice my Mam asked for to go with her wine once melted. Above and beyond service really makes the difference

    We had an absolutely faultless meal on Saturday 4th May 2024. Each course was just amazing, the staff were friendly & attentive. It was a 10/10 visit to this restaurant. We will definitely be back.
