A group of us had a meal here over the New Year period, we would like to thank all the staff for such a wonderful evening. You were able to accomodate our large group comfortably upstairs which was perfect, and also. The food was beautiful, the best mussles i have ever had! Thankyou for helping us to have a fantastic...

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.

Firstly, what lovely and friendly the staff and owners are at bistro. We were made to feel relaxed and welcome, which is not always the case in some restaurants? 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

Visiting Family in Cornwall over the Christmas period. This restaurant was recommended. On arrival a lovely Scottish lady welcomed us. She was really friendly and helped us with our food choices. The food was beautiful. The four of us all ordered different dishes and we all thoroughly enjoyed our food. We had starters and mains. It was very busy but... 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.

Found this little gem in St Ives while restaurant hunting on Boxing Day evening. Many of the restaurants were closed that day, but this seemingly small restaurant was open and we decided to give it a try. The atmosphere and ambience was calm, quiet and posh. Service was really good, quick, and we didn't feel rushed whatsoever. The deco of... More

We ate in this restaurant twice during our holiday, the food was excellent on both occasions and the staff very friendly and helpful. We especially liked the Tunnocks Tea cakes after our meal! The second time we visited we were a big group with young children - everyone enjoyed their meal and we would definitely recommend it.

Very much enjoyed our traditional Sunday roast last weekend. It's hard to imagine a restaurant in the whole of Cornwall that offers such excellent service, quality and value as St Andrews.
