“superb breakfast”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 15 July 2014 via mobile

Had breakfast in the Onshore and I must say it was excellent, I had smoked haddock with spinach and poached eggs on brown bread. Breakfast and service and price was brilliant. Will be going back again.

“Excellent food, service could do with refining”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 14 July 2014 via mobile

Went with my wife for our wedding anniversary and could not find any fault with either the quality or quantity of the food. The restaurant is perfectly located looking out across St Ives harbour, this clearly pushes the price up a bit but it is still reasonable priced.
The staff are friendly when you can get hold of them, there were only three people working when I attended even though the restaurant was fully booked, but I guess more staff would mean increased overheads and higher prices for the food so there is always a trade off.
I would definitely eat there again, in fact tonight was my third visit. You need to make sure you book before attending as it is always busy, but it is well worth the wait.

“Good but not great”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 July 2014

Visited here for an evening meal. We waited at the entrance to be seated for a few mins before any of the waitresses acknowledged us and when one finally did come over she did not greet us I had to ask her for a table. Menu has lots of choice but is quite pricey and although the food was nice it could do with a little more refinement. My boyfriends pork belly was mainly fat with not much meat this was disappointing for a dish that cost £15. Staff aren't very friendly or welcoming and did not come to check on us during our meal. Overall experience good but not great.

“Food good; service ok”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 10 July 2014

The food is good at this harbour front restaurant with a fair amount of vegetarian choice and the staff serve you in an efficient manner, but are not overly hospitable and are certainly not friendly. It's not somewhere I would rush back to.
