The Loft Restaurant & Terrace

The Loft Restaurant and Terrace opened in July 2009 as a restaurant serving a variety of dishes including fresh local fish and seafood. The restaurant was taken over in 2013 by previous manager and chef duo Caroline and Jeff, with the addition of pastry extraordinare Linda Fripp, widely recognised in the industry for fabulous patisseries and cakes. The restaurant is situated in the heart of 'old St Ives’ artists quarter, overlooking St Ives Bay and Godrevy Lighthouse. Our menu offers mouthwatering dishes prepared by our experienced locally respected chef using the best produce our beautiful county has to offer, including the freshest locally sourced seasonal fish, vegetables and meat.

Whether you are visiting for a coffee, a glass of chilled wine or a delicious meal, we guarantee your experience will be enjoyable. The restaurant is set in a former sail loft and is bursting with charm. With a relaxed and intimate candlelit ambience by night, and a light and airy dining space by day. The restaurant boasts a spectacular new sun terrace to enjoy some of the St Ives sunshine, whilst enjoying the stunning cuisine on offer. New proprietors Caroline, Jeffrey and Linda, along with their team look forward to welcoming you and assure you of a warm welcome!

We are also excited to announce that from April we will be opening for our ‘Coffee & Cake club’ serving the finest Cornish Coffee and the most wonderful cakes from our resident sugar fairy Linda Fripp. The ‘Coffee & Cake club’ loyalty card can be applied for at the restaurant or simply sign up for our newsletter for more information on discounts and prizes.
