    try the crispy bass with Thai flavours. My friends all wanted some slight change to the menu and the Chef acquiesced. Emma is a charmer ,all the staff friendly and proficient. The restaurant is perfectly placed on the wharf with fine views over the harbour.

    Both my husband and myself had cod and chips with mushy peas and homemade tartar sauce. It was delicious the fish was so white, the batter was light and crispy and the chips were big and chunky. This is the second time we’ve been to this restaurant and it won’t be the last! We have to go if staying in St. Ives . The waiting staff are so welcoming and friendly. I can guarantee of you go you will not be disappointed!

    Absolutely fantastic, last day of honeymoon. We’d eaten at some lovely restaurants in St Ives and The Beach did not disappoint. I had the catch of the day, hake, cooked perfectly. Partner had steak which was delicious. Great place, great food and great views. Our waitress was brilliant moving us to a window seat overlooking the harbour, just a magnificent experience

    Booked a lunchtime table and was very pleasantly surprised by the meal we had. It’s many, many years since we ate there and in those days it was more like a cafe. Now it is a restaurant with very acceptable food.

    We, my husband and I, ate here twice during our stay in St Ives in September/October 2021. The views must be the absolute best in the bay. On a rainy October day it was very welcoming. The staff are amazing and make you feel very special. We ate once for lunch and once for dinner. Both were the best experiences, the fish chowder was amazing, the scallops were superbly fresh. Every mouthful was exquisite, we both loved everything about it. What more can I say. Simply the best.

    Great welcome and attentive friendly service with a smile complimented the excellent chowder fish and chips and tempura prawns. What’s not to like! Dog friendly tables tucked away around the back of the bar could be improved but overall because of the food and service it wasn’t really an issue.

    Hi We were not impressed with our main courses I had the dressed crab which wasn’t dressed it had only been broken open. The teriyaki salmon was overcooked and the medium steak was very fatty. Our starters were excellent as well as staff and the venue just a-shame about the main course. Paul
