A delicious lunch, served impeccably and in a friendly, informative fashion without any patronising. Interestingly creative dishes in small portions turned out to be surprisingly filling. Chocolate desserts to die for and really tasty pig's cheeks. Wouldn't you be suprised ?

After lots of telephone calls a few months before our visit to Padstow, we were not able to reserve an evening table for 5 people over the Bank Holiday weekend. We had booked another restaurant for one of the evenings we were staying in Padstow, but were disappointed with the menu when we arrived. We went for a short stroll... More

We had dinner here in August. The whole evening was absolutely wonderful from start to finish. The waitress was fantastically knowledgeable and made everything sound delicious. The food didn't disappoint - it was absolutely fantastic. The food was innovative and challenging but completely wonderful. A visit to the kitchen was a wonderful end to the evening. A truly exceptional night... More

We have tried so many restaurants in Cornwall over the last couple of years from 5star to one star but we keep coming back to number 6. In Padstow the food is excellent And service is second to none.

The previous year we had been to Rick Steins on the harbour and weren't overly impressed, more so with the atmosphere and attentiveness. There are no shortages of restaurants in Padstow and this year we booked Paul Ainsworth's. Venue: Very nice shop front and décor inside although it does feel a little like you are being invited into someone's home... More

We booked ahead for lunch at this restaurant in Padstow. The 3 course taster menu was amazing value for money considering this is a Michelin * restaurant. The food was first class, an excellent wine list and the service was also excellent. The restaurant is situated on a quiet street away from the harbour and the atmosphere and décor were... More

My wife & I ate here for our first wedding anniversary, and had an amazing meal. Right from the off, the relaxed yet professional service put us at our ease, and reminded me of other great restaurants with similar style (such as Soho's Arbutus in its prime). I was distracted by the wine list when the bread arrived, and so... More

Today was our first visit to Paul Ainsworth, it was an amazing experience, with excellent food, staff who knew what went into the food they were serving and the atmosphere was relaxing. It was an experience we will remember and look forward to returning for a second visit. Thank you.
