Description: The balcony bar located on the harbour front overlooking the seafront provides a fast paced and welcoming environment for people to enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner or if you just fancy drink you are always more than welcome. We specialise in live sport and have numerous screens so you don't miss out on any of the action no matter where you are sat. We don't take bookings but due to the fast paced nature of the bar we do promise to seat everyone that comes through our door.

Find this place just wandering around with my teenage kids back in May. No queing to find a table by the window that looks out over the harbour.
Food was great then.
Returned last week and treated my girlfriend to lunch. No problem finding a table, great service and great food.
Have only tried the burgers (including the Mackeral) but they do other meals. Rosemary and sea salt fries are excellent as were the onion rings. One portion between us was sufficient.

The Balcony Bar is excellent for sitting in and watching the comings and goings over St Ives Harbour. Sit in one of the window seats wih a beer or coffee and watch the world go by. They serve a good all day breakfast for only £4.95 plus other meals, such as sandwiches and wraps etc. They do have Sky Sports but it doesn't interefere with the atmosphere. All the bar staff are very friendly.

Lovely views across the harbour if you get a window seat which we were lucky enough to !
Food was good (burgers were excellent) and arrived quite quickly. Large screen with football matches being shown so quite noisey but overall a great place for a drink with good food.

Look hard to find the entrance but worth it. Nice atmosphere upstairs window seat gives good view of the sea. Mid afternoon chill time of some Rose wine, olive and nachos. Nice staff, nice customers, good vibes and OK prices. Give it a try, makes a change from a Cornish pasty ( there are plenty of them in st Ives too)

Nice place to stop for a bite to eat, right on the harbour at st ives. Reasonable prices, good food. Could have been a bit more tidy but people are coming straight off beach into there. Female staff member serving the food needs to stop running hands through her hair while chatting. All in all a easy going, well priced place for a meal.
