Upstaris, Old Custom House, Wharf Rd, St Ives, England, TR26 1LF

Seasonal operation - closed in winter months. Small vegetarian restaurant in St. Ives. Large selection of organic wine and beer. The owner is an English man loving Italy, and while this isn't an Italian restaurant, you will find tastes of Italy here. Try the vegan chocolate cake with vegan ice cream on side. Family-friendly. Upstairs views over St Ives harbor. Reported closed to HappyCow, Mar 2016.

Fantastic food on the front - Edit

Had a lovely meal here with my partner. I had cornish cheese with a polenta crust to start, and a lovely homemade chutney. It was the perfect starter. For main I had the bean pancakes which one of the most interesting, and lovely things I've ever eaten! My partner also enjoyed his curry and soup. He certainly felt full and satisfied even though he is not a vegetarian. The service was smooth and friendly.

Pros: The food!!, Service

Cons: Very small - need to book!

Lovely location and food - Edit

Spinacio's is a lovely little restaurant overlooking the harbour - ask for a window table when you book. Service was very friendly and helpful, and the waitress happily talked us through the menu and the vegan options. My partner had the fried macaroni cheese and was a little disappointed, whereas I had the vegan black eyed bean pancakes and thought they were incredible! My only complaint was that there was a bit too much salad - otherwise, everything was fresh and delicious.

The chocolate prune cake for dessert was just beautiful, really moist and tasty. I'd love to go back!

Pros: Delicious vegan food, Beautiful location

Our favourite place in St Ives! - Edit

This is certainly our choice of places to have special celebration meals. We celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary here in May and my 55th birthday just last week. We LOVE the food here. The menu on the black board changes daily and always includes several vegan options.

Some of the excellent food we have enjoyed include the lentil soup, risotto cakes, and an Indian curry which is one of the best I've ever eaten. The vegan chocolate cake with ice cream is also delicious.

The views are spectacular overlooking St Ives harbour. Be sure to book well in advance and ask for a window table!

Pros: Great food and service, Awesome views

made our day - Edit

This is such a lovely place! I went with omni parents on my mum's birthday. Menu varies daily so you get something creative and seasonal every time. I had almond curry with Punjabi potatoes and turmeric and coconut pancakes, which was super yummy. My dad loved his mushroom stroganoff pie and my Mum had walnut & new potato crush, her favourite meal of the holiday (also vegan). We shared vegan chocolate prune cake and my parents shared rhubarb crumble with custard. There could have been more vegan options, for example there are many ways to make beans creamy without using cream! But on the whole I am in love with the place.

Pros: lovely friendly people new menu daily delicious, c

Cons: quite pricey (but well worth splashing out on) cou

Great place and fantastic location - Edit

Great choice of food and good vegan selection. Very knowledgable staff and much of the ingredients are grown by the owners. Fantastic harbour views if you are fortunate enough to have a seat near the window.

Food And Service - Edit

A very friendly veggie place to eat. The staff are nice and helpfull. The food was nice apart from throng hair that I found in my bean burger which did not me of a bit. The seating has changed since we last went there which was a year a go. The seating is now like you are at a pub, which ant bed but it's not what you would like when paying for a Meal in a restaurant. They had two huge ones and you would have to share it with other people which I don't like and probably most other people either. They took my main meal of the bloody due to the hair which was good of them. Apart from the tables which I think they need to change and the hair the place is an ok vegan friendly to go.

Pros: Location , Views , Good Selection Of Drinks

Cons: Limited Menu, Tables

wonderful - Edit

Not to be missed by anyone going to St Ives on holiday as we did. Lovely setting, great ambience and friendly staff. Best thing about it though is the food, good choice for vegans, and all the food has such depth of flavour, really can't recommend it highly enough. This is how veggie food should be done!

Pros: Food, Food!, Food!!

Cons: Nothing

Brilliant vegan desserts - Edit

Lovely restaurant, balanced vegetarian and vegan menu, friendly family vibe. Great views across the harbour. Best things for me were the delicious vegan dessert choices. We ate here 3 times in one week, plus once just for dessert! Worth planning a trip to St Ives just to eat here!
