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.
Great as usual
Really fantastic location directly overlooking Porthmeor beach. Staff were very friendly. Food was delicious and well presented. Really pleased with our lunch and would definitely recommend, especially for families.
Great food in a wonderful location, and good service. My only complaint would be we struggled to get a table over the recent school half term, but we can’t really complain if other people like the cafe as much as us and recognise Covid restrictions limit capacity.
Fantastic food, wonderful views, great service. We will definitely be book again. Thank you
Thank you always the best cafe in town!
Lovely food, fabulous views. Highly recommended!
Food was beautiful and great service too
Lovely spot and we enjoyed our lunch wth you - thank you!
Thank you for our sons complimentary 18th birthday cider, that was a lovely touch
One of our favourite restaurants overlooking Porthmeor and the Atlantic. Great innovative food, delicious combinations of taste, great service and relaxed atmosphere. The octopus and squid were amazing. Stunning rainbows too and felt Covid safe.
Awesome food, and very generous portions!!! I will definitely be back when in St Ives next! The squid was incredible!!! Recommended!!!
A lovely experience. Fantastic food, attentive staff and views to die for. What’s not to like?😊
It is not just about the fabulous location, although it is. It’s the great food and lovely service. Had our “last supper” breakfast here before lockdown. Couldn’t have picked a better place.
A fabulous lunch to celebrate my birthday. The food is always delicious. Must try is the octopus tapas. Enough for 2 to share as a starter. I loved the chickpeas with fennel sausages. And of course, you cannot beat the setting. Waves crashing on the beach, surfers as well. Great fun.
Hake was great (as we’ve come to expect) and the belly pork was amazing. Desserts were gorgeous and great value too, service is always relaxed and friendly. Good job!
Fantastic food , service and setting - our favourite place in Cornwall xx
Wonderful and friendly with amazing views Food and service we’re more great and we were able to extend booking with our waitress. She was very welcoming and helpful.
In my opinion, this is the best place for breakfast in the country. I’m sure it’s equally fantastic for lunch and dinner but we only do breakfast. Everyone is always very friendly. The best sea view and the food is lovely.
Once again a really enjoyable lunch. Good food excellent friendly service. Would recommend and will certainly be back
Lovely coffee.Food expensive but well worth it.Beach view priceless.
Fab food with a sincere friendly service during difficult times.
Excellent food and service! Fab location!
Back again... This time for breakfast. It's not the first time we've been here for breakfast, and each time we come we're always pleased we did. This time was no exception, great coffee, great breakfasts, excellent service and a great view from one of the pods. The weather wasn't at it's best, but you really don't mind when you've got great food and a fantastic view. It'll be 2021 when we return again, but it's always worth the wait. Many thanks team, see you soon...
We really enjoyed “our last super” before lockdown. It’s actually the first time we have eaten out since before the last lockdown and I’m glad we went to Porthmeor cafe for it, great setting, lovely efficient service and tasty/hot food, what more can you ask for.
We came for breakfast and had a really good meal. Staff were fantastic. Highly recommend.
