Whenever we can get a booking we visit this restaurant. The food is absolutely gorgeous, fresh and creative, The portions are a lot bigger than what you expect for this kind of restaurant so we always end up over ordering and can't finish it all!...More

Really enjoyed both the food and the atmosphere. The monkfish curry was to die for as was the squid starter. Will make the effort to come back to St Ives just to eat here.

Visited here NY Eve, atmosphere great, food amazing. All four of us enjoyed every course. Scallop starter was delicious. The fish pie is different to the usual and in my opinion - better. Crumble also delicious. Would definitely recommend and can’t wait to go back.
