Visited in mid June thought the meal was excellent but over priced ,wine list very over priced,Resturant itself is some what a very you either love it or hate it type of decor and ambience,Overall we enjoyed the dining experience just though it was overpriced.

Our party of four went to Padstow for a significant birthday. We dined in all of the usual eateries, the penultimate one being Paul Ainsworth's. From the start to the finish everything was excellent, Jordan our Maître D was very helpful and very pleasant. The food was excellent from the bread to the pudding. I did have some reservations being... More

The food was sensational, I chose the lamb in hay and it was probably the best lamb I have ever eaten. We also had the signature dessert 'fun of the fair', wow..! The only aspect of our visit that let the experience down was the actual restaurant, felt like we had been left to eat our meal in an old... More

After visiting Padstow on a number of occasions we finally got round to having dinner at No.6. Well our failure to visit previously was our loss - the decor is bright, comfortable and contemporary, the staff are very friendly and helpful and the food is divine. The fish tasted so fresh that it might have come out of the sea... More

Went here with a group of friends renting a cottage for a week just a few yards up the road, it was a reasonably late booking so ended up in the last sitting on a Saturday night which wasn't ideal. We sat in the room at the front on the left hand side on entrance which felt more like being... More

Food was good as you would hope in a Michelin Star restaurant and the service was lovely - friendly, helpful and not 'over the top' The premises is small - being a terraced house in Padstow - they are not the only one like this in Padstow or elsewhere but when you are paying for the 'star' it is a...

We booked ahead at this great restaurant based on Tripadvisor reviews and we were glad we treated ourselves. We are not 'fine dining' eaters normally but decided to treat ourselves on the last evening of our short break in Padstow. The restaurant is quite small but the decor is cosy and trendy at the same time. Little candles can be... More

We visited Padstow just to eat here again and second time around it was still amazing. The food, service and location make this place a real gem and something worth visiting. I couldn't decide on one pudding so we shared three!

We ate the set menu - this involved 3 courses with soft textures and added crunch. On the 1st course, this was fine as crispy salmon skin was integral to the dish, on the 3rd it applied well as a fitting addition to the flavours. We hated the main course of 'brown butter baked plaice' which I thought had been... More
