We come here for a treat every time we come to St Ives. A simple concept but very well executed. The staff are efficient and friendly and the food cannot be faulted. It's not cheap but worth it.

We come to the cafe every trip, multiple times a year. The food is cooked to perfection, fresh fish with delicious side options and sauces. Service is fantastic. Very quick and always really friendly and accommodating. Make sure you book your table in advance.

We hadn't made any plans for lunch but were walking past this restaurant and it looked good albeit a bit quiet at 12:15. As it turned out, the right decision. The fish and chips were good but the star was the fish pie. So often...More
