Perfect for Sunday lunch

We visited on Sunday lunchtime with the family. Love the relaxed set up of this place. Drinks in the lounge followed by a lovely lunch. 3 of us had fish, errant son had chicken, all plates demolished. We went for the three course set menu, decent value at £25 per head. The waiting staff were... read more

Lovely evening , in a relaxed environment. Really enjoyed the food and drinks. The comfortable lounge pre meal was also very enjoyable. Our Scottish/American waitress was exceptional , she appeared to be very knowable about all the fishes on the menu that evening. We will return.

Having enjoyed an excellent dining experience at The Seafood Restaurant the previous week, we were looking forward to our first visit to the Bistro. On arrival, while we were waiting for someone to greet us, we noticed the high level of noise coming from the dining area. When we were taken to our table we immediately noticed how cramped and...

We have visited this restaurant in Padstow with our daughter (four) three times now and each experience has been really wonderful. We have always visited at lunchtime, and have eaten from both the lunch menu and the a la carte, with our daughter ordering from the children's menu. Each visit has been a delight, a very relaxed atmosphere with good... More

Fantastic bistro, we got there an hour ahead of our reservation and enjoyed a drink in the lounge which was lovely. The food was fantastic, would highly recommend the prawns, BBQ mackerel and the chateaubriand. Could not fault at all and staff were lovely. Interior is rustic yet still modern and the atmosphere is very relaxed and pleasant. A great... More

We ate at the seafood restaurant the night before and that was a very hard act to follow! The 14oz steak I had seemed somewhat light! and a bit fatty, however the food was nicely cooked and very tasty.

What an overpriced average meal and dining "experience". Understaffed and under par! Booked for 7.15 to give table back at 9.15pm. We waited with a drink and menu's in the lounge until 7.50, apologies were given for the later dining. Starters were at the table before we were? quickly followed by the average main course. Gremolata prawns, nothing more than... More

We loved the friendly, unstuffy atmosphere at the Bistro. We went with high expectations of the menu and we weren't disappointed. The menu is mostly grills but the fish available was delicious. The steak was fabulous and the bone-marrow gravy was heavenly! The staff were spot-on in terms of their courtesy and friendliness. The ambience and décor were relaxed and... More
