The name suggests snacks and icecreams rather than the restaurant that it actually is. Beautiful setting - try to get a window view, with additional outdoor seating. My crab linguine was delicious, just how I had hoped, as were my daughter's mussels, but my husband was underwhelmed by his fish and chips. We were there at quite a late sitting with a largish group and the staff, though very friendly and willing, seemed run off their feet.

First port of all when ever we’re in St Ives...our favourite place for breakfast with a great choice to suit everyone’s appetite can personally recommend the scrambled egg & smoked salmon. Lovely choice of drinks and cocktails and this year we had a meal at night which didn’t disappoint, extra touch at night there are small throws on the back of your chairs if you sit outside so you can wrap up against any sea breeze plus large heaters too. The staff are all lovely friendly and very professional and for us with elderly parents are more than willing to go the extra mile in our opinion a definite 12/10

We always visit this restaurant and it didn’t disappoint. The fish was beautiful - the best we had during our stay. Long may we return!

Had a fantastic meal here. The service is exceptional and with a touch of class a step above some other eateries in St Ives. We sat outside on the terrace and chatted while watching the sea. I had to have fish and chips as did my wife. We were not disappointed. The fish was excellent and dissolved in the mouth. Chips were brilliant. I like this place allot and the service makes you feel special. Highly recommend
