About The Loft Restaurant and Terrace

Welcome to The Loft St Ives. We are situated in the artist’s quarter of the picturesque town of St Ives. The building itself has been a restaurant for over fifty years enjoying the quiet views over the rooftops and into the harbour. We took over the business in September 2016 and are proud to provide a quality service using many local ingredients.

We do have a dog friendly undercover terrace *weather permitted* so you can bring your furry friends along! Please mention if you are bringing a dog or book yourself in the undercover terrace area!

DUE TO COVID: We have had to make some changes to ensure we are keeping our staff and customers safe at all times!

We are open from 12-2PM for lunch Tuesday - Saturday and Dinner is served from 5pm.

A warm welcome despite the blustery day. The Thai vegan curry was delicious.

Absolute gem hidden away of the main streets. Great ambience with the sun setting over the rooftops. Great friendly service and good set up for al fresco dining

Very basic and not as good as the 4 other restaurants we visited over the last 5 days. Of course COVID restrictions play a part but the others have made much more effort.

Friendly welcome but disappointed that building works were in progress, which was very noisy. Our allocated table was less than 3 feet away from the works. We were told that the only alternative would be for us to sit in an uncovered area - not great with seagulls overhead. While we were there only 4 tables in total were being used, so we could have actually been seated under cover. We were given a complimentary drink for the inconvenience. The food was nice, although our first choice was not available. We will come back on our next visit to the area as everything seemed to go wrong this time and we don't think this was a true picture of what it is normally like.

Really enjoyed our lunch on the pretty terrace. The mussels and sticky toffee pudding were the stand out highlights for me. The service was also very friendly creating a relaxed atmosphere. Will definitely come back.

A tad chillier than we were expecting but we still loved the place and it was a pleasure to enjoy our first restaurant meal of the year in such a great place. We'll be back for our next visit in May.

Lovely staff, great food, great cocktails, a covered outside terrace and it’s definitely dog friendly. Lunchtime has a reduced menu. Will be back again soon
