We went on the last night of our holiday, poor choice as we'd overlooked much better restaurants The Loft and the Seafood Cafe in order to try something new. My rum and crab soup was basically a very watery tomato soup with tiny bits of barely discernible crab - and to be honest it was horrible. We ordered the fish sharing platter for our main because we love cajun blackened fish and squid (which was advertised). When the tiny 'platter' arrived full of breaded rubbish we all agreed it looked like something from Bird's Eye that we could have bought at Iceland. The 'blackened fish' (we expected a piece of cajun blackened fish, on the bone, like we have all enjoyed many times before at better restaurants) was a breaded white fish fillet with a bit of spice added. The 'tempura squid' was substituted with a battered white fish fillet, and our server hadn't even bothered to mention squid was off. The rest of the 'platter' consisted of a few skinny cold fries,some slaw, tasteless croquettes and corn cob bits (the only part I actually ate) and a handful of breaded whitebait. We had to pay extra for a dip for the whitebait. Our bill - after compaining - was reduced to £125 for 4 and we all came out still hungry and wishing we hadn't bothered. Horrible food and a massive disappointment on our last night. Please don't waste your money. There are far better restaurants in St Ives - any one of them in fact.
