after visiting the charming st michaels’ mount & gardens in the morning followed by lunch at mackerel sky at new street penzance, we arrived at our wonderful trevose harbour house B&B at st ives on 12.5.2015 about 3pm.

we had a nice walk around the st ives harbour & beaches & went to dinner at porthmeor cafe at 8pm.

we ordered 5 tapas & 1 dessert plus a prosceco. we felt the price was bit high for the portions.

scallops were good, nicely seared, good herbs & condiments. still the scallops at tolcarne inn were far better by comparison.

grilled tuna though was quite flat, not much taste, improved a bit with addition of quite a bit of table salt & taking with the peanut butter sauce.

the servers made a mistake & we were served a dessert, a salted chocolate tart we did not order. we informed the server & she said we might as well eat it (w/o charge) since she could not serve it to anyone else. 🙂

it was very good though, in fact it turned out to be better than the grilled banana we ordered.
