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!

Opening Hours
The Loft Restaurant & Terrace will be opening for Dinner service from the 14th March at 6.00pm and then for Lunch and Dinner service from the 15th March onwards, 12pm and 6.00pm respectively. This has been put back due to the adverse weather conditions St Ives has seen, putting our refurbishment back a couple of weeks.

We are excited to announce that from the 1st April we will be opening for Breakfast for the very first time and also opening 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. Coffee’s and cake’s will be served at The Loft and on The Terrace from 9am till 4pm everyday from the 1st April. We are also now taking bookings for Mothering Sunday. We look forward to welcoming you back soon.
