Places to Eat

 

 

Visit St Ives in Cornwall to experience the finest selection of restaurants in the West Country.

Attracting some of the best chefs and catering staff, this  beautiful little seaside town offers an unusually high concentration of truly world class restaurants that you might only expect in the middle of a capital city.

Most restaurants are very central, all are walkable from the train station or any of the car parks.  Take a wonder through the middle of town, explore the myriad ancient cobbled streets and take-in the choice of mouth-watering menus.

Whether you are looking for the atmosphere of the town, or spectacular views across the Harbour and along the coast-line, we highly recommend booking a few days in advance if you have a particular place in mind that you’d like to enjoy during peak season.

Below, we have shortlisted just a handful of  the many restaurants that we have enjoyed over the past few years. We will make some more recommendations in due course. In the mean time, follow us on Twitter.
