Having read so many positive reviews on Harbour fish and chips we were looking forward to our meal here. Unfortunately it didn't quite meet our expectations. Whilst the fish was fresh and the sweet potato shavings were a nice touch, the 'mushy peas' were just normal peas that had been mashed and the chips were a bit bland. It would... More

I am not a lover of fish but I like to try new things and I stepped out of my comfort zone and tried the lemon sole. It was delicious. The presentation of the food was great with a surprise of sweet potato crisps sprinkled on top.

If you are after the simplicity of good old fish and chips then this is the place for you. Whether eating in, which I would recommend, or taking out you won't be disappointed. The fish and chips, whether you have cod, haddock or hake, is the absolute best and that makes the Harbour Fish & Chips the tops for me.

Ordered grilled fish, was served battered fish. So another 15 minute wait. When they re-served the grilled fish, it came with warmed up chips. Salad (basically lettuce), had no dressing. Charged for tartare sauce! Fish and chips x 2 and one sardine starter came to £30. Not a good experience for us.

We went here a couple of times and have to say it's the best fish and chip shop I've been to. You may have to queue if you dine in the restaurant but it's worth the wait! Everything is so fresh and the batter so crispy and the chocolate brownie and clotted cream is to die for! Wish we didn't... More

We visited when the business was first open and we were very happy to find quality fish and chips in a great location with good service. We live locally so we came back quite soon. On our third visit the size of the fish fillet had considerably reduced and we were disappointed. We visited again this past weekend but again... More

Freshly cooked, crispy batter. Varied menu. Staff took care concerning my wifes shell fish allergy and the chef pan fried her fish to ensure it was free of possible contamination from other items oon the grill.

We visited in January so the service was quick and very good. Food excellent, but in the summer St Ives becomes VERY CROWDED...so what it is like then I have no idea.

I wanted to purchase a nice St. Ives fresh fish dish, which turned out to be takeaway Mussels in sauce - a cupful/quantity....sauce that is - and two slices of thick buttered bread. I got outside the café & takeaway to find a suitable place to sit and enjoy my new experience. I decided to... well it all went wrong... More
