I visited this restaurant with my family on the 1st of April 2018.

We wanted to try local seafood so we decided to give it a go as with the name Seafood cafe we couldn't go wrong.

We ordered some mussels as starter and a crab bake and a Cornish crab linguini as a main course. Few minutes after the order was taken the Waitress came back and advised that the Cornish Crab Linguini will be with prawns instead of crab, since we wanted to try the crab we ordered 2 crab bakes and surprisingly the same Waitress came back few minutes after to let us know that the crab bake will have prawns too instead.

Should we have been advised at the beginning we might would have decided to go somewhere else but the way it was done forced us to stay.

On a positive note, the mussels were delicious and so the squids.

We visited St Ives last year and enjoyed two fantastic meals here, and were excited to return this year. However, we were hugely disappointed - this restaurant has gone seriously downhill.

The seafood chowder we had for starters was very underwhelming. The portion size was shocking, and barely filled a quater of the bowl. The chowder itself was tasteless and seemed like it had been made from powder. There was only 2 or 3 pieces of fish which tasted very close to their sell by date.

The portion of cod given for main course can only be described as pathetic in size, and the taste was not much better. The ray-wing was a better portion size, but again did not taste fresh. The sweet potato wedges were the best part.

The next evening we enjoyed a much better meal at 'The Loft' - the seafood chowder was absolutely fantastic - full of taste and with plenty of seafood.

Tucked away in Fore Street this is a gem all the staff were very helpful and friendly. Service was prompt with food cooked to order. Prices are reasonable. They get very busy so best to book. You order at the counter where the various fish are displayed along with a small selection of meats for those that do not like fish. The dining areas are down steps, so not very accessible for less able customers. I would certainly eat here again.
