We booked a last minute table on a wet and horrible Thursday evening. The meals were lovely and the service was friendly. We would definitely return!

Delicious vegan food! Had an amazing Mediterranean platter followed by a tagine. The best meal I have had in a long time, absolutely fantastic food! Family had fish which they also really enjoyed! Absolute gem, highly recommend!

Ate here on last night of holiday. I go to St Ives in September every year to say bye bye to the summer. This is now my favourite restaurant and I will return. Luckily OH agrees. Great space, service, menu and most importantly, fabulous food.
