My husband and I called in with my daughter and son-in-law for something to eat before they travelled back up country after a week's stay in St Ives. Although we live locally we have never visited Scarlet Wines before and certainly wish we had. The staff were very friendly and on a very cold day it was so warm and... More

Visited Scarlet's once again when visiting family, both my 90 year old father & my 11 year old son love this place. Had a lovely Saturday lunch. Lots of vegetarian options. Purchased a great bottle of wine to take home.

Really good selection of fresh dishes presented beautifully. The seafood sharing board was excellent as was the crab cake flatbread. But everything we ordered was great. Knill By Mouth is an interesting pale ale from the St Ives Brewery. Lots to buy from the shop too. Recommended.

We discovered Scarlet while staying nearby. We wanted a light dinner and was very happy with our choice. We shared a seafood platter and a halloumi cheese dish. Both wonderful . The server recommended a very nice local wine. We also really like the atmosphere.

We stopped at Scarlets on Saturday lunchtime for what we hoped would be a high quality but speedy snack lunch. We were not disappointed. Succulent flat breads with fillings such as crab croquette. Homemade. Zingy. High quality. Not cheap at about £9 each, but quality is worth paying for.... Great service, lovely atmosphere and unpretentious too. Well worth a return... More

For some reason we haven't visited here for a year of so, so we thought we'd call in for a couple of very decent bottles of wine a fortnight ago - and we weren't disappointed either! -- This is basically a wine shop with a restaurant and deli attached. The wines are world class and cover an amazing area of... More

Our daughter and her partner had a variety of tapas all great. The dessert were also of great quality. My chocolate nemesis cake was superb. All around a great meal. There were also lent... More

We visited for coffee and ended up buying wines and beer. The waiter was extremely friendly and very knowledgeable about all the wines. A great experience and we'll be back to try the breakfasts as they looked delicious!
