About Porthmeor Beach Cafe
LOCATED IN ST IVES JUST BELOW THE TATE, PORTHMEOR BEACH CAFÉ IS A TRULY MAGICAL PLACE.
With a buzzing atmosphere, alfresco dining and imaginative cocktails we serve breakfast, lunch and tapas through to evening dining. Our friendly staff will greet you with a choice of inside, on the terrace, or tucked away in our cosy heated booths. We boast the best sunset in the west, perfect for people watching, checking the surf, and even the occasional dolphin show.
In light of the covid-19 pandemic we have made some changes to the cafe to limit numbers and maintain social distancing measures.
Bookings for all services now open.
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.
Great food and views
Lovely food and drink. Gorgeous view! Will definitely return next time I’m in St Ives!
As ever food quality is excellent, especially the hake and the mussels. Dessert choices rather limited.
We really enjoyed the service and food and the view is just amazing. Highly recommend
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.
Always a super treat to visit That you have kept up standards, quality of food, friendliness and great service under current conditions is amazing A huge Thankyou
Brilliant as always!
Very accommodating regarding seating choice given unpredictable weather conditions Food was very fresh and innovative Service bright and personable
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.
Atmosphere only suffered due to COVID restrictions, hopefully back to normal soon
We had an amazing meal on Tuesday. We ordered a lot of dishes and wine and we have no complaints at all. We will be back Again on Friday. The crab was outstanding!!!!!
Fabulous food (we ate from the tapas menu) and fabulous location - a real treat and highly recommended
This was the perfect evening for the start of our honeymoon. Thank you so much for the delicious food and making it so special.
Brilliant location, friendly and helpful staff and great food!
A taste sensation just loved it can’t wait to come back on Friday
Honestly some of the best food I’ve eaten. We’ve been to st ives 4 years in a row and came here each time and it’s got better every year.
Fabulous lunch in a perfect setting.
Excellent service and food 👌
Delicious food and lovely service.
Fantastic food, superb service and reasonable prices, what more could one ask for.
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.
