Excellent food and service great staff and well worth the price. Padstow exceptionally busy and although No 6 was full it was a very relaxing evening out. Pity it's not nearer to where we live!

This is a stunning restaurant. Paul Ainsworth still works in the kitchen which keeps the standard very high compared to some other Michelin restaurants where the chef has gone off to pursue their celebrity status. The whole evening is a relaxed and enjoyable affair. The front of house staff are co-ordinated by an outstanding restaurant manager, Alex, who seems right... More

Ate here twice in the same week . Simply the best food we have ever tasted and superb value for money, considering it's a similar price to outlaws at enodoc. Which isn't in the same league in our opinion !

A very popular venue, so we only managed to get a table for lunch on my birthday despite a few weeks notice. This was no issue for us however - and we enjoyed a first class meal from the a la carte menu, with excellent service in a lovely environment. The food was absolutely delicious, superb quality seafood. We chose... More

A superb restaurant. We visited for a birthday and as foodies we weren't disappointed at all. The food was eclectic , creative and delicious with an eye for local provenance. Service was supremely efficient, professional and warm with zero stuffiness. Ambience was conducive to fine dining and very welcoming. This is a must if you want to splash out in... More

This is our favourite restaurant in Cornwall. We try to go each time we visit as it's not only fabulous but the food is a little different in that your not 100% what to expect but it's always way better and more imaginative than you ever expect. The restaurant itself in a stunning town house, has a great, fairly intimate... More

I feel privileged to have dined hear, the food and service where on another level. Everything about No 6 is so carefully considered, the food, staff where fantastic, the restaurant and atmosphere. Another great thing is that it’s not pompous and posh like other upscale restaurants. The Food was amazing, every course was stunning, the time, effort and process to... More

Went to No 6 on the recommendation of a local with a group of six friends for Saturday lunch. We had a whole front room to ourselves, which was beautiful and very special - and probably best for the other diners too! I had the set lunch which was just incredible value at £19 for starter and main - smoked... More

I don't want to say too much because you have to go there to get the full experience - but from drinks looking into the kitchen on arrival to the gastronomic experience that then unfolds before you in the comfortable and informal setting is really something to experience - you won't be disappointed! Highlights - Brioche and pate, Lamb and... More
