The Balcony Bar has a fabulous view of the harbor in St Ives. It is also dog and children friendly, although it is quite hard to negotiate the stairs up to the bar with little ones. It has a relaxed feel of an American diner...More

This cafe/bar is obviously good for a drink, burger and watching sport on the big screens around the room and, of course, the fantastic view of the harbour. However, if you're veggie, the choice is very limited and not good. But it's a good break...More

We have visited Balcony on a previous trip to St Ives. We just had to return for the great breakfast and views to top it off. We will continue to come here.

We had lunch was good for a quick food stop, a few of the items we wanted had run out on the menu which was disappointing especially as one of them was fish! View is great

We looked in on Saturday night for a meal but the restaurant was very noisy - not really what we wanted for uncle and auntie, niece and great niece (aged 4) . We returned this morning for breakfast and were delighted. The food was very...More

Love the new pizza's, onion rings are absolutely lovely as is the coffee and the sticky toffee pudding (especially if you get it with sea salt caramel ice cream instead of vanilla). The food is very reasonably priced and arrives quickly. Still mourn the loss...More

We used this place as a great location to meet up with friends on holiday, to watch the football and for more informal meals. The food prices are really reasonable (under £10 for adult meals) and good quality. Our kids are older and went downstairs...More

The balcony bar located on the harbour front overlooking the seafront provides a fast paced and welcoming environment for people to enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner or if you just fancy drink you are always more than welcome. We specialise in live sport and have numerous screens so you don't miss out on any of the action no matter where you are sat. We don't take bookings but due to the fast paced nature of the bar we do promise to seat everyone that comes through our door.
