Featured St Ives Restaurants
1. Porthmeor Beach Cafe Spanish restaurant in St Ives Porthmeor Beach - TR26
An “imaginative” tapas-style venue that’s “bang on trend” and enjoys “an unrivalled location right on the beach and by the Tate”. “The view alone would suffice”, but there’s far more on offer – the “food never fails to deliver” and is “reasonably priced” (“it shouldn’t be this good!”).
2. Porthminster Café Mediterranean restaurant in St Ives Porthminster Beach - TR26
“A magical position overlooking Porthminster Beach just below the revamped Tate” with “brilliant views” creates an “amazing setting” for this beloved “hut/café makeover”: one of Cornwall’s better-known eateries. After middling reports in recent years, food is back on the up, winning nothing but praise this year for its “excellent” standards, with fish and seafood tending to take centre stage.
3. Porthminster Kitchen British, Modern restaurant in St Ives Wharf Rd - TR26
Overlooking the harbour and with a large terrace – impressive views are a highpoint at this contemporary (lots of wood, glass and steel) spin-off from the Porthminster Beach Café, situated closer to the centre of town. Too few reports this year for a rating, but such feedback as we have is positive all-round.
