Staff were friendly but unlike the website stated the food and atmosphere were pretentious, the food was average, in fact the fish was bland. Very little menu choice. drinks were very over priced. Slow service, we even had to ask for the dessert as were left waiting so long.Overall disappointing.

Probably the best meal we have had in any restaurant. We were 8 in our party so we were able to try virtually every time on today's menu and loved all the culinary surprises, the wonderful combinations of flavours and the sheer beauty of each plate. Geniuses in the kitchen! Thank you to all the service staff too, who were... More

Friends took us to this restaurant on the first day of our summer holiday in Cornwall. Delicious menu, fine wine. Especially the Camel Vineyard Champagne. Very impressed with the cosy surroundings, the informal dining but amazing food. Very knowledgable and friendly waiter. A must if you are in Cornwall for a special occasion.

The meal was one of the best I have had,... More

I booked 3 months in advance to secure a lunch time booking as a treat for my boys whilst we were visiting family. The restaurant is beautiful, the staff are friendly and chatty and most importantly were welcoming of my children. We ordered a mixture of the set menu, children's menu and the a la carte to keep everyone happy.... More

We expected the food to be delicious following a previous visit and the pedigree, but we were blown away by the attention and knowledge of the staff, in particular a delightful young lady called Sarah who knew the menu in detail and was able to bring each dish to life before we ordered. The food was lovely, some wines a... More

Four of us had lunch it was brilliant. Whenever we visit Padstow No 6 is always on our agenda. The welcome is warm, the ambiance delightful, the service excellent (and very knowledgeable about every dish), the food divine and you know that you are certain to return. The waiting staff were friendly without being over-familiar and were extremely attentive. If... More

Even compared to other restaurants of a similar standing, No. 6 is exceptional. The service was charming - attentive and friendly but not overly so, chatty without being matey. Well informed, too, about the ingredients and processes of the food, and familiar with the wine list. The mains of monkfish/confit duck in broth and day boat cod with crab were... More

Seriously one of the best in the UK, if not worldwide. We have eaten in some very good restaurants across the globe and Paul is up there with them. We ate at dinner and were bowled over with the quality and service. Professional but unstuffy and staff were attentive and knowledgable without making you feel over fussed or that they... More
