The meal was all that was expected after reading several reviews, very well cooked and very appetising. The portions were generous. The service was excellent. We tried to book a table for a Saturday in 5 weeks time but were disappointed as the tables had already been fully booked, so book ahead in plenty of time. We will certainly be... More

We booked Margot's for our last evening in Padstow purely on the basis of Trip Advisor Reviews. We managed to get the window seat. We started with grilled mackerel fillets (yummy) and smokedhaddock and sea trout chowder (also yummy but very rich - more on that later). Next we had grilled fillet of grey mullet and roast fillet of haked... More

We came to Padstow for a 4-day break and couldn't miss Margot's. This time we chose to have lunch and although it was fairly quiet in the restaurant it made our visit really special - it was like the chef was cooking especially for us! We enjoyed three courses each and chose a bottle of Spy Valley Sauvignon Blanc to... More

Let's face it - there are several excellent restaurants in Padstow. Our last 2 visits have taken us to Number 6 which is also excellent. Margo's however is different. There is no music, no pizazz and plain furniture. What it provides is a really personal feel where you meet the owner and receive delicious food at very reasonable prices for... More

You need to book well in advance to get a table bug it is worth it. The menu changes every evening and I believe the chef only does 18 covers so the table is yours for the evening. My wife had hake and I had sole. Both were excellent as were the sweets. This is probably our favourite restaurant in... More

An excellent range of dishes from seafood to game and some completely scrumptious puddings to finish with. The sticky toffee pudding was huge but so light that it was just wonderful. The service in Margots is friendly and efficient without being over the top. You never feel rushed in Margots and if at the window table you can watch the... More

For reasons beyond this review, we got to enjoy the undivided attention of the restaurant, as the only customers at lunch. Service was excellent, with helpful and thoughtful accommodation of dietary requirements. The food remains excellent, as it has been on our previous visits, with generous portions and locally-sourced ingredients (as demonstrated by the various supplies walking in with trays).... More

Have been to Padstow many times and finally remembered to book Margots 6 months in advance! Not disappointed food was fantastic and i can't remember better. A good choice of dishes for the family and excellent local dishes. Wine list excellent and local beers. Service was spot on and limited number of covers made the dining experience feel very exclusive.... More

Ate here on 21st August, myself, husband and 6yr old son. We booked several weeks before as we knew how hard it is to get a table in August. We have eaten at Margot's 3 times before during previous years and each time have found the food fantastic. It is a very cosy and friendly place (they only do 19... More

Ate here tonight after booking 3 months ago to make sure of a table after reading so many glowing reviews. No doubting the freshness of the fish but unless you want your taste buds bathed in butter without much else try somewhere that cooks fresh & natural not relying on fat to give the taste.
