The Alba is the place to go for fine dining in St Ives. Run by award winning chef Grant Nethercott, it specialises in local food with a 5 star touch. Grant loves to use local ingredients and suppliers, from fish to foraged food, even herbs from his own garden.
The Alba restaurant is split into 2 parts:
Upstairs in the sit down fine dining part, with sensational views over the harbour and towards Godrevy lighthouse.
Downstairs is called the A-Bar which serves coffee, cocktails and small plates of tapas style food to nibble on.
The Alba is located right on the corner of Lifeboat Hill and The Wharf. It is in the building that used to be the old Lifeboat House. You can see the big open frontage that used to open up to house the old lifeboat. Nowadays, the lifeboat is in a new, purpose built building just across the road from The Alba. The Alba is a great place to watch the lifeboat launches from - they have regular practices which are very interesting to watch!
