This place is terrible - the cook should be slapped 1000 times for each dish comes out of the kitchen. Linguine seafood - terrible: full of tomato sauce - frozen seafood and a slice of lemon in the pasta !!!! Tomato pasta for the kids: 50gr. overcooked Carbonara - not possible without mushrooms because already part of the sauce??? Caesar... More

Visited for breakfast on my own and lunch with family, both times the food was good and service great. Special mention to the fact that the staff helped me with my 6 month old baby and 2 dogs when on my own!

We got sucked into this venue with the 'view' but that really all it had. We chose this for my birthday lunch and had a great position overlooking the sea. The food was a real disappointment and we all felt that it should have been a 'cafe' only without trying to be a restaurant. The paella was bitter, the open... More

Actually it's fine. Fairly basic food and friendly waitresses, good pizza, nothing fancy, no complaints.

We got started on the right foot as we were able to book a table for dinner (many local restaurants won't do it - or only for large parties 7+). Arrived, were seated right away and orders taken speedily, which was great, as we had 3 hungry kids. The starters were lovely and appropriately 'starter sized'. We had the king... More

We often go in here for the most wonderful pizza you will get in West Cornwall. Great wine and lovely staff too.

We stopped here for lunch on my birthday. I ordered the open crab sandwich. I was told that they had run out of crab and did I have an alternative choice. I chose the steak sandwich. We were both shocked when a couple arrived and ordered open crab sandwiches some 5 minutes after us! They were told that they didn't... More

They do really large good lattes at this cafe and you can bring your dog onto the terrace which is covered so you're out of the rain.

We stopped for a light lunch and as we had our dog with us we sat outside, but it was heated and snug. The sandwiches came with a small side salad and were delicious. The staff were friendly and efficient. We tried to return for a cuppa late afternoon, but as with most of the rest of the St.Ives cafes... More
