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

Wine list is very expensive.
Food was well cooked and nicely presented and was very tasty.
Mackrel Pate is excellent
Food Choice limited, 6 main courses, 2 of which were vegetarian
There is better value in St Ives. Though I will continue to recommend this restaurant
The starters were nice but mains very, very average - the pork and beef didn’t taste good quality. It all just lacked flavour. Disappointing actually.
Lovely atmosphere and very friendly, attentive staff. Although a little pricy, the food was faultless in both taste and presentation. The restaurant itself was spotlessly clean.
Great food, great views, good service
Korean langoustines were delicious (be prepared to get messy!) and the Dover sole was lovely too. Wonderful location with friendly and attentive staff and delicious food. Recommended.
You might pay a little bit more but it’s worth every penny .
A delicious meal overlooking the beach.
Lovely staff, we were made to feel very welcome. Nice menu and some good options for the kids. We ordered a few of the nibbles to keep us going which were very good and were decent sized portions. Starters arrived quickly and were again good portions and very tasty. Kids meals were great. Main meals were really tasty and some great flavours. Would definitely recommend.
Unfortunately meal was spoilt by a bunch of obnoxious dinners who obviously wanted to avoid paying. The patience of the staff dealing with these characters was outstanding and the meal was lovely.
Wonderful food and great table service. Only adverse comment is that the menu was only available by scanning the QR code. Sadly we weren’t advised of this so had come without phones. Paper menus are welcomed as part of the enjoyment is pouring over the it together, discussing it and then referring back when the server comes to take he order - with so much gorgeous food on offer decisions are often difficult! So please some consideration and allowance for we old folks. Thanks !
Definitely recommended. Great food, great view, service was impeccable.. it was the highlight of our trip!
Big thanks to Porthminster Kitchen team
Very nice all round, great food, very friendly staff, super service.
cannot fault it
I could not fault this dining experience. They texted us to let us know our table was ready early, and we were given a table on the terrace as requested. The food was gorgeous (try the PK Banana) and the portion sizes generous; the wine prices were not ridiculous either, although this observation may be due to us being accustomed to London prices. The service was PERFECT - efficient and on point, yet still warm and genuine. Best of all, we were not rushed through dinner and felt we could’ve stayed for hours (this may have been related to our later booking time of 20h30, but still). Loved every minute and would return in a heartbeat.
Beautiful panoramic view across the harbour. COVID safe in every way, menu downloaded on phone and wonderfully presented and very tasty food.
Excellent service, superb food! A wonderful evening thank you very much. Highly recommend, great menu - so hard to choose from!! Great wine and cocktails. Best meal we have had out for ages
Excellent the food the staff the service the portions the menu and the venue met every expectation
A WONDERFUL MEAL
Wow, just wow. Amazing food with many layers of flavour. Every course a treat, perfectly cooked, beautifully thought out dishes. Fabulous.
Food was amazing but slightly expensive. Worth it for the view over the harbour and the service though.
Good fish and meat courses. Vegetarian dishes not so strong. Good service.
Overpriced, weren't offered desert, cancelled other booking.
We were impressed with the perfectly cooked food and the service which was attentive and quick. However disappointing that our table was very small.
I had the Heritage Tomatoes, lovely, followed by the Vegetable Curry which is one of the best meals I have ever eaten. Curry, rice, mango chutney annd flatbreads, all of which were perfect. The dish was gorgeous, nice servers, lovely table, wish I could go every week.
Friendly service and great food - Asian beef and Halibut went down a treat.we
Delicious food, lovely service. Portions could be bigger to reflect the price.
The food and service were fantastic with a view of St Ives harbour to die for. The only downside is you can only have the table for two hours but I understand why. Well worth a visit.
The brilliant seafood we'd been hoping for in coming to Cornwall, with a great view of the harbor, and a relaxed hip vibe.
Amazing options on the menu, fresh food and tastes even better! Lovely views and a really nice atmosphere
Excellent food, excellent service. Decent, fairly priced wine. Couldn’t ask for more.
Excellent food and service, we have tried to book again but they are fully booked, we will certainly visit again when we are back in St Ives
Delicious fresh food in lovely surroundings with great service
The food in absolutely amazing, great choices available and just delicious! You must must have the squid and the scallops! Has amazing views and the service was good. They are really busy throughout summer so boom in advance to avoid disappointment.
Food was amazing. Excellent service. Incredible views. Would definitely recommend
The most delicious food, the chefs must be congratulated. We thought we were in a top class London venue but the added bonus with the beautiful view of St Ives harbour.
The service and food were fantastic, and we will look forward to coming again.
Lovely tasting food of Asian fusion slant - great location with harbour views, good service .
Amazing food, amazing view, lovely staff.
Thoroughly enjoyed our experience. Best meal we have had so far in St Ives.
The fish was beautifully cooked though portions are on the small side and prices high
Staff are lovely all round.
Menu much the same as the other Porth restaurants
Delicious food - scallops were the best I have ever eaten!
Amazing food. Was little cold inside but staff did eventually move us. Would definitely book again
