The food was cooked well but it was a very noisy restaurant. The staff were nice.
Lovely food - not the cheapest but worth it. Amazing flavours.
Excellent restaurant if I were staying here longer I would be returning , loved the fish specifically the sole , my wife had the cod which was equally as nice . Not cheap but then again not over the top .
Lovely food , tasty wine really helpful staff , over looking the bay in the sunny evening what more could you ask for
Brilliant Meal, brilliant service.
Could not fault it
I had a very delightful lunch the other day Excellent service and good fish
We visited on a weekday in mid September for lunch and simply out, it was quite superb. The service is relaxed and pleasant. Speaking as a non-fish lover, the whole sole was delicious, but the piece de resistance was the PK banana, which is described as a deconstructed Banoffi pie, but just so much better than that. Total recommendation.
Excellent food, service and location. Beautiful views over the harbour as well.
Excellent food quality and fantastic customer service. Beautiful setting overlooking the harbour and sea. Highly recommend this place.
Excellent restaurant with great food and a fabulous view
Delicious food, good service, beautiful views over St Ives, perfect lunch.
Lovely meal. Great view. Would have liked to sit outside but didn’t get an option. Little high in price but to be expected in that location.
Excellent fish restaurant with great harbour views especially if lucky enough to get on the verandah. More butter than would like in the cooking but good overall menu. Service excellent.
Good food but quite expensive. You have your table for 1.5 hours and I feel that 2 hours would have made the experience more enjoyable and relaxing.
Our dinner was on the last night of our holiday in St Ives and was the highlight.
Food was great and the chef was very happy to amend a recipe to accommodate an allergy . It had a small menu so you know everything is just cooked . The fish of the day is well worth a try .
The view over the harbour is fabulous and makes the experience very special
I'm so glad we managed to get a table at the Porthminster Kitchen, albeit for lunch and not dinner but weren't disappointed. There is nothing i could say to make it better. The food was first class and the service amazing as well.
Thank you PK for a fab afternoon
The mussels were absolutely delicious! Couldn’t fault the meal and the staff were extremely accommodating. Highly recommend.
Lovely atmosphere, service and food....a good way to end our holiday at St Ives
Very friendly and helpful staff food was excellent
Fantastic evening. Food was the best we had all week.
Waitresses really helpful and attentive. Food was excellent. Husband had the linguine which was his best meal of the holiday and I had the roast cod and gnocchi in a lobster bisque. We were full but still managed a chocolate brownie, sheer decadence. We'll definitely be back next time we visit St Ives
A great place to have lunch and watch the world go by. We had lunch outside on the terrace, food was great.
Lovely friendly service, food excellent, didn't feel rushed and very accommodating to special dietary requirements.
The food was excellent service very efficient by lovely friendly helpful staff
Wonderful evening. Staff so welcoming and helpful. Food cooked well and nicely presented.
The food was really excellent. Fabulous fresh fish! Gorgeous setting too on the harbour, and the service was very efficient and pleasant.
Our last night in St Ives was made special by dining on the balcony watching the sun set. The food, service and relaxed atmosphere were just perfect!
Food was excellent quality and VERY well presented.
Service was very friendly and efficient.
Lovely views across the harbour from pretty much any table position.
Wine was very nice, but a little pricey.
Overall, EXCELLENT and I would highly recommend Porthminster Kitchen
Lovely meal with friends great atmosphere food very good thoroughly enjoyed the experience
Although limited menu, food was delicious. Not big prtions though. And lager wasn't great, quite perfumey but that's just personal choice. Slightly overpriced in my opinion.
The noise level was high but all else very good.
Really lovely meal, not
Cheap but worth every penny.
Staff where really friendly, will book
Again when next visiting the area
Fantastic location, had a table on the terrace overlooking the harbour, excellent food and outstanding service. Will definitely be returning.
Food was ok A little pricey for what is was …
Had to self-stack starter plates and cutlery as they weren't cleared before the mains arrived, no apology or thank you. All vegetables were overcooked, especially the cauliflower starter, which waitress agreed was pre-cooked prior to being warmed back up before serving. The wine and expresso martinis were lovely.
Great food and ambience- would definitely recommend.
Upon arrival told that our table was required back within 1 hour of our booking so instantly felt rushed. Limited selection on the menu, opted for 2 Starters and 2 mains. Food of average quality, bland and incredibly overpriced for the quality. Setting and staff nice enough but not worth the money. Would recommend trying elsewhere. Disappointing.
What a wonderful meal we had, the staff were friendly and efficient and the food tasted amazing with gorgeous views over St Ives harbour! Would highly recommend!! 🥰
I can honestly say that Mark and I had the most wonderful meal. Outstanding. We had booked all our restaurants earlier in the year and had saved this one until our last night in St Ives. We thought that this restaurant looked amazing. We were not disappointed!! 😊
I will send a photo of my attempt at your delicious Seafood Linguine to Facebook 😊
Thank you all for making this a wonderful end to our fabulous holiday.
Louise and Mark xx
Excellent food, excellent service and a great view from the balcony. Highly recommend this restaurant
Lovely meal in a lovely setting and we really loved the Anthony Frost original artwork in the restaurant.
Really nice staff and we’ll definitely be back next time we’re in St Ives
