Our server, Zoe, was excellent, as was the menu and food. Two hakes and one sea bass. The banana desert was, however, not as good as on the previous Friday, a little careless in preparation. The Cornish blue cheese was beautifully presented, but was too cold, too young and bland.

As ever food quality is excellent, especially the hake and the mussels. Dessert choices rather limited.

Beautiful location, possibly could do with a little more choice on the menu ( although we really like the selection) . It’s just a bit pricey - but I suppose that’s St Ives for you ! Had a lovely early dinner - thank you.

Every tapas plate ordered was absolutely stunning. Can't wait to return one day. Great service and what a pleasure to sit by the sea like that enjoying a chilled glass of vinho Verde.

We didn’t get to try as we could not park anywhere, we arrived 30 mins late and were told no breakfast is now being served. If only we were warned by the cafe how awful parking was we would have been more prepared. When being called the day before to confirm our booking, perhaps this would have been a good time to inform us of the parking issues.

Lovely views, great service and dairy allergy well catered for. We ordered off the Tapas menu and the food was amazing! Children’s meals were very good too.

As a family we really highly recommend the Porthmeor Beach Cafe, breakfasts yummy and evening meals or just a cocktail equally good. It’s a must visit place and the views are some of the best. Here for a week and visited daily, as in previous years.
