Food was excellent, setting was amazing, staff very friendly and helpful, though I would say do not go if you are expecting a cheap night, but well worth the money.

We were quite prepared to pay a lot more for this very popular but unpretentious beach-side restaurant. Porthminster Beach is absolutely beautiful, on a par with our famous Aussie beaches (if you don't go in the water ie.) The Asian-influenced dishes we chose were superb, perfectly sized, arrived promptly and were inexpensive. We particularly appreciated the friendly, can-do attitude and willingness to make a table for us on the terrace despite our booking being for inside. A thoroughly delightful couple of hours to cap off a great first visit to St Ives.

We had a wonderful experience last year for a special event meal here and hoped to repeat it this year

Unfortunately we were doomed to disappointment. We had booked a few days before but when we arrived they couldn't find it and I felt they made more of a fuss than was necessary.

We had booked a seat with a view inside but we had to take a seat on terrace. Unfortunately the seat I was given was in full sun and the side panel were down due to wind so I was soon extremely and uncomfortably hot.

The food was good but I had better at other restaurants which were half the price.

There was little choice for dessert.

We ate the main course as quickly as possible and left as I felt so unwell from heat. A very disappointing result for what was supposed to be a special occasion. On leaving I explained that I was far too hot and that they shouldn't seat anyone else there.

We tried this place for lunch first to check it out and then booked for dinner a couple of days later. The food is fantastic, location and staff are the same.

This place deserve their good reviews, pretty amazing.

I am a pretty plain eater but for the more adventurous there are some great looking dishes. Everything is so fresh.

We had 2 tapas style plates for starters, a bottle of decent wine, 2 steaks for main, 2 dessert plates and finished off with 2 coffees and our bill was approx £85. A bit of a treat but well worth it and the steak was the most expensive dish on the menu.

Wish I lived nearer to this place.
