Visited the Loft tucked away in a very quaint part of St. Ives for a meal on New Year's Eve. Very polite staff welcomed us, service throughout the meal was exceptional. Food was of the highest quality, of which I cannot possibly fault. Steaks were cooked to perfection and the ham hock Scotch egg was something else. Would highly recommend... More

oh dear oh dear, we have been going to the loft for many years now with excellent service and food but............... we knew it had changed hands but hoped it had kept up its standards, alas no, the staff were still super friendly and accommodating but the food was very disappointing. It all seemed warmed up and dry, no where... More

This was our first visit to the Loft Restaurant & Terrace, tucked away at the end of the street, and certainly won’t be our last. We had a table on the terrace with lovely views overlooking the harbour. The service was excellent and we were not rushed at all. There is a good selection of dishes to choose from on... More

We received a very warm welcome with a small dog in tow who was made to feel equally welcome. The food was so fresh and plentiful that were were sad that we had left it to our penultimate day to come here. The stake was out of this world, and the pudding were to die for too. Wonderful service throughout... More

We booked this restaurant for my birthday as dogs are welcomed in the terrace part. When we arrived it was blowing a gale but the lovely waitress, Alex had put all the heaters on in advance to ensure we were warm enough. What a lovely start! The whole evening was just blissful. The food was delicious, the wine was great... More

Our small family group dont get together all that often, and this trip was part of a short meet up in St Ives. We didnt make a reservation, but it was mid week and we got in, no trouble. The food was superbly presented, well considered, fairly priced and efficiently served. All four of us were very satisfied with our... More

Had a fabulous meal at The Loft on the last evening of our October holiday. The food was absolutely divine. We were seated in the covered outside terrace which accommodated our Westie. Super friendly staff, lovely setting, excellent food, dog friendly, what more could you ask for. Will definitely be back !!!!

My friend had her wedding reception here 1 week ago. The staff were so warm, welcoming and helpful, they dressed the table beautifully, the decor is fresh and bright and the food was delicious, our meals arrived to table perfectly timed, I would recommend The Loft for any occasion.

Great cheap food, up market and dogs loved it. Great Sunday lunch. Came here as it was listed as dog friendly and they had no issue with us having the dogs on the terrace which was heated. Food was great value as well. Recommended.
