Featured St Ives Restaurants
1. Porthminster Café Mediterranean restaurant in St Ives Porthminster Beach - TR26
A “fabulous setting”, with a “sublime view if you get a window table”, is the trump card of this famous venue overlooking Porthminster Beach. The ratings for food have revived a little this year after a slump, and while there are still the odd reports of “mediocre” results, there were more reports of “stunning fish dishes” from a kitchen which is “never short of ideas”.
2. Porthmeor Beach Cafe Spanish restaurant in St Ives Porthmeor Beach - TR26
“Inventive tapas-style dishes from an open-plan kitchen” and a “buzzy atmosphere” “in the shadow of Tate St Ives” make this café “an unbeatable place to watch the sun go down”. Earlier in the day, it’s equally “good for afternoon tea looking out to sea”; breakfast and lunch, too.
3. Porthminster Kitchen British, Modern restaurant in St Ives Wharf Rd - TR26
“A breathtaking view of the beach” is a highpoint at this three-year-old in the centre of town, which is consistently well-rated for its modern brasserie fare (and is open from breakfast).
