About Ugly Butterfly Restaurant and Bar
In a stunning Cornish Atlantic setting, just a mile from St Ives, Ugly Butterfly restaurant and bar offers spectacular views across one of the worlds most beautiful coasts, Carbis Bay. All of your problems disappear, based on the sheer environment of where you are. The sound of the ocean and the simplicity of perfectly-cooked local food makes you forget you’re even in the UK.
Ugly Butterfly showcases chef Adam Handling’s passion for converting locally-sourced, quality ingredients into beautifully-presented dishes, packed full of flavour. The Ugly Butterfly bar uses trims and offcuts from the ingredients used in the restaurant to create delicious drinks and bar snacks.
Scottish-born, Chef Adam, didn’t always have a love for food but his passion, drive and determination saw him start his apprenticeship at the prestigious Gleneagles Hotel, in Scotland – at the age of 16 – and never look back.
Adam’s cooking is all about celebrating the incredible produce he uses – his dishes are packed full of flavour to really make those ingredients shine.
