The was our second visit to The Harbour and it was just as good if not better than last time. The food was excellently cooked and very well priced. Dishes were plentiful in size and well presented.

The food was beautiful definitely worth the trip I would recommend the food any time. Unfortunately the service was not great, we waited for cutlery for a few minutes for our mains and only got it when the table next to us was observed giving us some. A server was seen sitting on the floor with her phone in hand whilst we were waiting. However on the whole I would still recommend based on the food.

The food was mixed My husbands grilled fish was good. My battered haddock was dry and overcooked . The staff were friendly. However the Covid precautions could and should have been followed..The staff had no masks or visors and no sanitizers used or available. Been coming since it openend now feel unable to return with the way it’s been run at the moment.

Very busy ..got served quite quickly as we had reserved a table . Staff all a bit young and not very smart a bit scruffy ...maybe thats the Cornwall way ? , considering the prices we expected a more intimate experience . We asked for a wi ndiw table to be reserved ,when we got there they gave it to a family that had not ... Food .... Tiny scallops and prawns ,for starters but fish and musscles very good a nd wellcooked . 7 out if 10...dont dress up its more of a very relaxed atmosphere. We just felt the website hypes it up to be something it is not ..a fine dining seafoid restaurant...bit if a let down i am affraid.

Service was shocking. Table not cleared so eat next course with plates from first course, still on table when we finished meal. Had to ask 3 times for cutlery, waited 20 minutes for extra chips. Asked if we would like the bill as there was no time for desserts, when we questioned that the children’s meal included ice cream we were told they could put it in a box to take away. During a period of a pandemic where extra hygiene measures should be taking place, very little was happening. Lots of sand under the table, dirty marks all up the windows, table was sticky. We asked to move as when first seated were practically on top of the next table, all adults were in a corner seat directly breathing over us. When mentioned to our waitress the response was ‘It’s a fair point’. Before leaving we spoke to one of the supervisors to also mention how disappointed we were. Her response was ‘I know, I’m sorry it’s been absolutely carnage today as one of the other supervisors has walked out’. Thoroughly unprofessional and not really our problem.

The food was delicious, our only disappointment was the service. After finishing our meals the waitress didn’t come back to take our plates or ask if we would like anything else. It wasn’t even particularly busy and 3 other groups around us were also sitting with finished plates on their tables for over half an hour. It started off so well and couldn’t fault the food, but ended feeling disappointed.

Just a disappointment all around. We were looking forward to dinner at the Harbour but upon arrival there was total chaos nobody was there to guide you to your table and we were told to stand in the takeaway que. After being seated it took 35 minutes to have food and drinks ordered. A further 40 minutes after that until anything arrived, drinks didn’t even arrive with the starter. Quality of the main course was poor at best. Wouldn’t go back and wouldn’t recommend.

We visited on our last night on holiday in StIves. Unfortunately service was very slow and mistakes were made. This was not just for us, all around us waitresses were apologising to other customers for errors to their orders. The food was good when it arrived. Unfortunately I did not feel the COVID 19 safety procedures were very good either. The staff did not wear face masks, I felt they came too close to customers and fans were blowing which is surely not a good idea.

Service not quite there - had to ask for spoons to eat our chowder; one person's dinner was missing peas. Was disappointed in the chowder - just white fish and rather thin. But another member of our group loved the hake.

Our waitress knew the menu (food and drinks) inside out. She was recommending drinks to suit different meals to the other customers and went out of her way to customise a meal for my 8 year old son who ordered scallops and chips. She was very friendly and excellent at her job.
