We visited as a group of four and had excellent service and food. It's a bit pricey, but you get what you pay for. We'll be back next year! Only downside was it was noisey, but some sound absorbing material on a wall or two would fix that.

The service was confused and a bit erratic. We received some wrong items and others had to be chased up. Rick Stein's recommended wine was not available. We were not offered bread and had to enquire whether it was an option. The tables were packed in and had to pull our table back tight into the corner to avoid the... More

An amazing evening with perfect food and very good staff who looked after us so well. It was our second visit after a long gap of several years and we weren't disappointed.

Could have been great. The starters were excellent, however disappointingly we found the Chateaubrriand was tough which was a real shame as it was certainly not lacking in taste. Value for money wise it felt a little overpriced, we've had better for cheaper. Pescadou's is a good shout if that's what you are after. Fantastic service and an overall enjoyable... More

Having spent a glorious summers afternoon by the harbour in Padstow we moved on to what was meant to be the highlight of the visit our evening meal at St Petroc's ...... only to be left underwhelmed .......the wine list was described by one of our party whose life and work is wine as possibly the most uninspiring he has...

St. Petroc's Bistro is located in the 'back' street of Padstow. It was sometime ago when we visited, so it may have improved since that time. However, we decided to try this venue for a light meal. It's a pleasant venue, perhaps more cafe than bistro. We had hake, chips and peas and a glass of wine. You expect to... More

We have driven and walked past the St Petroc many times over the last couple of years, mainly going to other restaurants like Rick Steins etc. Today we hadn't booked anywhere so called in to the St Petroc on the off chance of a table. The main restaurant was full, so ate out on the patio in the garden, you... More

We visited for the set price lunch on the last Sunday in June and had a thoroughly enjoyable and relaxing meal. The restaurant is simply but attractively laid out and the staff are all very pleasant and helpful and they were comfortably busy. The three course meal was excellent, with sensibly sized portions presented in the modern style and at... More
