Porthmeor Beach Café and Tapas
A must visit when you are in St Ives. Inventive tapas style dishes and also breakfast, lunch and dinner. Sits right on Porthmeor Beach so you can watch the surfers hit the waves while you sip a cocktail. Reservations are very hard to get in the summer, but they do keep back a section for walk ins.
Amazing views of the beach and sea, we’ve seen pods of dolphins whilst munching breakfast, total highlight of our year! Fantastic breakfasts, (before 11am) tapas lunches, and great suppers. It’s super popular, during the summer you need to reserve a table well in advance for supper, get there 30mins…
Set right above Porthmeor Beach this is a wonder indoor/outdoor venue. The perfect place to watch the sun go down over St Ives Bay.
“Great spot. We recommend walking in, reserving a table and grabbing a drink at the Balcony whilst you wait!”
“A 25 minute walk gets you to Porthmeor beach in St Ives town which is one of the best local surfing beaches. Here you can hire wetsuits and surfboards and have surfing lessons with some of the best surfers in the country.”
“Great for surfing and with good cafes, Porthmeor is a great beach for older kids and adults, on days with big waves it can be too big for small children though. The best place to watch the sunset on a nice evening too”
“Late night opening and music, fab views, personal favourite for breakfast with a view.”
