What a find! Brilliant food and a wonderful lively atmosphere.  Very attentive and good humoured staff.  I won't be going to 15 again in a hurry.

My mum and I visited your cafe on the recommendation of friends from Plymouth who take the train just to eat with you as often as they can.  Expectations were high and we were not disappointed.  The food was excellent and I can't waite to take my husband to eat with you again soon, so he can share in the unbeatable Sticky Pork Salad, not to mention the incredible Tamarillo Tasting Plate for dessert.  A real, memorable treat in a beautiful setting.

Your cafe was recommended to my mother & I by one of the many happy, chatty locals.  After a long day on the beach the open veranda was the perfect spot to sample some exquisite tapas whilst watching the sun setting.  Gripped by the food, the wine and the view we didn't want to move despite the coastal breeze picking up a little.  We declined the offer of a table inside and soaked up the wonderful vista wrapped in blankets you generously provided (a fantastic touch we thoroughly enjoyed!) I've worked in restaurants all my life and I credit the whole team on a job very well done.  Genuine friendliness and top quality cuisine is a rare find.

We ate at the restaurant on Friday while staying in St Ives for a weekend, the service was professional and very friendly and the food was excellent.  We are still impressed and can't wait to visit again in the future.

We stopped for luncheon last week and we were extremely impressed by the excellent food, wine and service.  We were blessed that day with beautiful sunshine and were able to site outside overlooking the beach.  It was wonderful - so civilised.  Thank you.

No holiday is complete without a stroll to the Porthminster Cafe at least a couple of times a week.  For that special relaxed evening meal nowhere else compares.

Victoria Dewsnap

We have been eating at the Porthminster for years now and everything has always been superb - can't recommend it highly enough.  The best fish and chips in the world!!

My wife and I had dinner at the Restaurant on Friday 29th while we were on holiday in St Ives.  We both have to congratulate you for the superb meal enjoyed by both of us.  We travel extensively and visit numerous eating establishments.  I cannot recall previously such a feeling of well-being we both enjoyed after the wonderful experience at the Cafe.  A return visit is assured. Great service too!

Stayed at Carbis Bay for a short break and visited Porthminster Cafe twice, lunchtime and evening.  On both these occasions the service and exceptional food was outstanding.  Can't wait to return to the area and visit the Cafe again.  A gem on a beautiful beach!

Jill & Tony Cook

We ate at the restaurant last week and it was wonderful - the food was fantastic, the service was brilliant we had views out to the beach at very short notice - wonderful! highly recommended.

I felt I should drop you a line to say what a great evening we had last Thursday.  We had eaten with you three years ago and it was fantastic then - but it seems you didnt stop there - everything was faultless.

My wife had the Sticky Pork Salad and I went for the squid - both marvellous.  The John Dory fillets with crab were awesome and the Dark Chocolate Pannacotta was outstanding.

In my business life I go to many lunches in London with clients - including many restaurants from the Ramsay stable - and you have proven you are up with the best.

It is interesting to see your reviewed in the Weekend Section of the Telegraph on Saturday again - in a well deserved first place.  Interestingly enough the Beach Restaurant at Sennen came 6th - we had an awful experience there - it just goes to show how far ahead of the field you are.

Please pass on my thanks to all your staff for a truly memorable evening.
