Occupying an enviable location on the hillside above St Ives, The Garrack hotel offers a bright and airy dining space with  attractive views over pleasant greenery and the Atlantic Ocean beyond.

We arrived early for our meal on a sunny summer’s day and took the opportunity to enjoy a cheeky pre-dinner cocktail on the pool terrace, while watching the surfers and early evening walkers down on St Ives’ Porthmeor Beach.

Suitably relaxed, we took our seats among fellow diners in the restaurant, and looked over a menu full of inventive and very reasonably priced dishes, created by head chef Tom Avery. I plumped for a starter of beer-battered tiger prawns, which were beautifully seasoned and came with sweet chilli sauce and crisp cos lettuce. I continued with delectable pan-fried hake loin with sautéed wild mushrooms and a flavoursome sweetcorn and tarragon salad. My partner, meanwhile, took the opportunity to devour filo-wrapped pork belly with fried kale, mushroom duxelle and creamy mashed potato. For dessert I opted for the indulgently delicious dark chocolate orange fondant with vanilla bean ice cream, while my partner raved about his fresh fruit platter with caramelised banana and sweet strawberry coulis. Overall, our meal was excellent, and the service was superb throughout. It’s no wonder The Garrack has earned itself an AA rosette.
