I give this four stars rather than five as we had to wait a little longer than hoped but we overheard a conversation and it sounded as though the chef had injured himself just as the rain poured down and the cafe filled up. The food was really reasonably priced and tasted really fresh. Simple, tasty produce with a conscience. Would definitely go back and would get takeaway sandwiches from there if we were on the move as they are fairly priced and very tasty.

We stumbled across this lovely intimate food heaven on a Saturday evening and we were so happy to have eaten here. The food was delectable and the staff were amazing and very attentive but non intrusive, We had the Sardine and chorizo stew and a salad, wow, the best food in St Ives, people should be queuing out the door

Do both. I can recommend that you buy your picnic for the Minack Theatre here. For lnch or picnic they have a lot to choose from and are very flexible and service minded.

We had a group of 5 people with two annoyingly fussy young girls. We were happily accommodated in a small space - a request that is often met with some irritation and everything was just so lovely. And I mean really, REALLY lovely. Actually lovely. Beautiful, if compact, toilet area, happy service, food assembled and cooked with great care, wifi was offered without even asking, really nice atmosphere, Dolly Parton AND Phil Collins soothingly and unobtrusively overlaid on the spacially constricted but uplifting dining environment. WE ARE YOUNG. Just a lunch but an overwhelmingly delightful experience when compared with the normal depressing mediocrity, or worse, of a seaside dining experience. Made my fricking day actually

Had tapas here this evening - really excellent and a bargain too. The mushroom and grilled Cornish blue cheese was incredible - my companion didnt get a look in on that one! The host couldn't do enough to make our meal fantastic - and good choice of music playing too. Will be back before we finish our holiday here. Very, very highly recommended! The take away menu and the deli there too looked excellent.
