Conor Fletcher

Restaurants throughout Cornwall offer a unique gaze into Cornish culture, the cuisine on offer is both emblematic of the history of the county and reflective of the agricultural heritage that has developed throughout Cornwall’s environment. Dining in St Ives is, for the most part predominantly centred around the town’s relationship with the ocean, across the harbour front innumerable restaurants offer a variety of seafood cuisine fresh from the depths of the Atlantic. Whilst staying in St Ives it’s well worth getting out and trying what’s on offer so here’s some of the top seafood picks in St Ives to embrace during your stay at the Sail Lofts luxury self catering apartments.

The Seafood Cafe

It goes without saying that The Seafood Cafe is predominantly a fish restaurant, although there is a smaller selection of steak and poultry on the menu though it’s best to keep in mind that the options for vegetarians are a little scarce. Here you have the opportunity to build your meal from scratch with the option to choose your desired fish or meat, how it’s cooked and what source it’s accompanied with. With a fantastic variety of fish on the menu you can treat your palette to baked local scallops with a chorizo and artichoke puree or try a selection from the menu to share with salt and pepper squid with asian dipping sauce. The Seafood Cafe truly embraces the wonderful produce that makes the town so special.

Porthgwidden Beach Cafe

Certainly a more relaxed vibe with stunning views across St Ives Bay to Godrevy lighthouse, the Porthgwidden Beach Cafe is only a few seconds away from our luxury self catering apartments residing on the edge of the quaint Porthgwidden Beach.
