Visited for late lunch. Excellent choice of fresh fish,cooked however you wish. Service excellent, friendly staff. Reasonable prices for freshly caught fish.

Service ok, but main course scallops very poor, over cooked and only six for a main course, definitely not good value as it only came with a spattering of salad and some bread. Not good value at all, won't be back

We were lucky to get the last available table,and with just two staff who were very friendly but under pressure we had to wait rather a long time to be served,when the food arrived it was worth the wait,maybe a little on the cool side, very tasty though

We are just add fresh oysters and lobster but waiting time near the 1 hour ,this really terrible choice,I don't want coming again ,服务员总是很忙绿虽然笑容是亲切的,但是并不会解决任何问题,一顿简餐吃了两个小时,anywey,食物是可口,只是等待的过程中完全没有食欲了,希望这个餐厅可以改善这个问题,那样会是一家很不错的餐厅

We visited here for a nice little lunch after really fancying some traditional fish and chips. The place is relatively small and cosy, but had all the facilities you would require. Fully licensed bar, and lovely clean toilet facilities. We were greeted by a lovely friendly and very welcoming group of ladies. They were very informative running through anything on... More

Lunch time visit for some fish and chips. Menu is quite extensive and caters to every taste. We had some squid to start which was pretty good. Classic fish and chips for main which was fairly underwhelming. Definitely lacked taste and have had fresher better tasting elsewhere. That said I'm sure the other fresh fish dishes are better as many... More

The restaurant was nice and the service was ok! However the food was average! We ordered fish and chips and the fish was soggy and under seasoned! I have had better in places far from the sea. Not impressed considering how fresh the ingredients can be in St Ives!

Very disappointed with this fish and chip shop. Over priced, really small portions. We ordered large cod and large chips, not even a regular portion. I did check it was large I had ordered. Staff looked and acted miserable and really didn't want to be there, and this is the start of the season!!! The location is what draws you... More
