One of the worst days to leave the house, torrential rain, however as soon as you walk into Scarletts, you settle into a very comfortable restaurant, vibrant art work, log burner, and attentive service. The breakfast was superb, local ingredients , eggs that taste as they should, cooked with herbs and spices that bring a whole new taste to the... More

Not just a seller of good wines Scarlet is a perfect setting for a family get together, lunch or evening the food is excellent. I particularly like that we can take a bus to and from Lelant enabling everyone to enjoy a drink. Great for those holidaying in St.Ives who don't want to move their car!

Yet another delicious lunch at scarlet wines..this time most welcome after having walked there from St Ives. The mix of flavours is perfect. We both enjoyed the crab fritter flat breads and the children devoured the haloumi and (what has now become standard) the bowl of yummy patatas bravas. Washed down with one of the most refreshing beers I've had... More

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
