Good and less pricey alternative in padstow

This is a fish restaurant which is much less damaging to the pocket than the famous alternatives in the village; a decent mid-range alternative for those who want decent quality without the fuss.

Everything was great, the fantastic menu & food, service and ambiance. I wanted a dish which had a cheese sauce, I don't like cheese but the chef swapped the sauce for a mushroom sauce, something he didn't have to do. Definitely recommend.

We went here for a Cornish tea which very nice. The staff were very friendly and is a nice view of the small harbour. Based on our experience we would recommend this restaurant.

Superb meal as always. Crab Tiran followed by Seafood Thermidor that was full of flavour with new potatoes. Too full for dessert. Great friendly service.

Nice little restaurant with limited menu choice which wasn't a problem for us as we liked near enough everything on it! Service was good until we asked for the bill which seemed to take a while. Lovely fish dishes including scallops. Ray wing and Lobster Thermidor. Worth a visit for sure

As we were in a fishing harbour we felt the need for a fish restaurant. We did not want to pay over the top for Rick Steins restaurants. The restaurant was in an old converted house with a bay window overlooking the harbour. We sat in the lounge area for pre dinner drinks watching the people and 'seagulls' going by.... More

We booked on the recommendation of our B&B proprietor, as she worked there a couple of times a week. We were not disappointed, both the starter and main were of high quality, with the Seafood Thermidor the absolute highlight. Would recommend the Pescadou to any visitor. The only slight gripe was that they forgot the wine we ordered and had... More

We tried this restaurant on a Tuesday night and had such a great meal with good,friendly service that we went back on the Friday night! We were not disappointed. The standard of food and the service was consistently excellent. The Seafood Thermidor is absolutely superb! We would definitely recommend giving it a try.

We ate here on the 20th of June 2015 for dinner. We did not have a booking but got a table for 9.15. The food was excellent, however we were rushed. As soon as we had put the forks down from our starters the plates were taken away and the main course brought out. To make matters worse the portion... More
