This is probably one of the best meals I have had anywhere. The waitress was very friendly and professional and the food was exceptional. We were a party of five and didn't have to wait long to be served or for the food to arrive. The flavours were amazing. Thank you! Will definitely return and recommended.

We visited on the last night before Winter Closing & were so pleased we'd just caught the place open. Service at this family-run restaurant is always cheerful, casual yet professional & we are spoilt for choice on the menu. The welcome loaf of bread is just divine! My fish main was excellent. Portions are generous, one day I will have... More

We had a most enjoyable New Years eve dinner at St Andrew's Bistro. The team produced a lovely Scottish themed meal and were attentive at all times with the meal being paced beautifully. We even went outside a couple of times at the owners suggestion to view all the New Year festivities that St Ives is so well known for.... More

Excellent food and service, duck breast and confit duck leg was the best I had ever eaten and the chefs homemade bread was delicious. Nothing was too much trouble, catered for all our teenagers requests to changes in dishes. Will definitely be going back when next in St Ives.

A small choice of meals but something for everyone to enjoy. Locally sourced produce , which is always good to hear. Portions were generous, and prices not too expensive. Recommend the... More

The food was incredible and the staff were very friendly. They even surprised us by decorating the table for our daughter's birthday and all the waitresses wished her a happy birthday - this made our daughter's day! We will definitely return.
