We visited this restaurant because everywhere else was fully booked. Soon found out why this one wasn't full... the food was reasonably priced compared to others on the wharf, but it was lousy. The steak was tough as an old boot, 2 onion rings, HALF a mushroom each?! and then after a couple of mouthfuls the TV's went on and... More

We've dropped in more than once during our week in St Ives - once for brunch (salmon and avocado on toast with poached eggs - £5.75 each and very tasty) and once to watch a football match (clearly audible when sitting near the high definition screens, but not loud enough to bother other customers not watching the game), as they...

Fab views from this American style restaurant and bar. The food was pretty good and they serve a large number of beers and drinks.

Had the veggie breakfast. Tasty, but leave your diet at the door as everything is fried! Very generous portions for £5.50. Extra indoor burners to protect from bitterly cold wind outside, if sat by the windows. Friendly staff. Lots of screens showing sports. Good atmosphere on a Saturday. Recommend.

If you want a reasonably priced burger and fries in St Ives, look no further. The Balcony serves different types of burgers (beef & chicken) and flavoured fries (rosemary and sea salt fries are our faves!) and has a great selection of beers too. It also serves wraps and salads. Prices are very reasonable and service is quick. Have eaten... More

Chose this place for breakfast on the last day of our holiday in November. Was quiet so was lucky enough to get a table in the window with the most fab harbour view. Service was great, barman very cheery! Food was awesome and I had the most impressive hot chocolate! Great way to end our holiday. Would definitely visit again

The balcony bar located on the harbour front overlooking the seafront provides a fast paced and welcoming environment for people to enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner or if you just fancy drink you are always more than welcome.

We specialise in live sport and have numerous screens so you don't miss out on any of the action no matter where you are sat.

We don't take bookings but due to the fast paced nature of the bar we do promise to seat everyone that comes through our door.
