We stay in Padstow several times a year and always comment "we must try that place one day". My husband and I have just returned from a lovely long weekend away for my birthday and he treated us to a meal at Pescadou on Sunday. We only came away with one one grumble - why didn't we go there before.... More

We stopped here for an evening meal, and found it to be very good. The staff were very busy with a large party that was unexpected, and they did very well as the group was quite demanding of their time. The food was lovely, having had quite a choice of menu, and the service was good as said. Prices were... More

We were attracted by the "sample dinner menu" on the website of this restaurant. Unfortunately the reality bore very little likeness to the cyber version. Firstly I must say that the lady who looked after us was charming and very professional. The food: sardines - OK but the sauce contributed nothing to the dish (just a liquidised ratatouille); soup -... More

No problems here, good food, perfect service. All linked to The Old Custom House hotel. Menu could be more varied, but perfectly acceptable. Breakfast very good, plenty of choice and good quality. For January, probably the best place really.

Called in here on a very quiet evening so not much in the way of atmosphere. This was offset by the staff who were all very helpful and genuine. We enjoyed our meal which was delicious and good value. Overall a very happy evening.

This is a really lovely restaurant in the centre of Padstow. Went with our 2 children & we all had excellent meals. Service was also very good and it is reasonably priced for Padstow.

This is a really pleasant restaurant in Padstow. The menu was a little restricted, but there were some really nice options. Also you can get a proper pint of beer from the adjoining pub.One annoying this was that my dessert came with clotted cream instead of the ice cream it should have come with.

We stayed at The Old Custom House and have eaten here on a couple of occasions. Food has always been good and not overly priced for Padstow.

For more years than I care to remember we've gone here for lunch annually on or around 27th December (a birthday). We have unfailingly had a really pleasant meal (always fish), served by friendly helpful people. Pescadou is neither as posh nor as pricey as Rick Stein's various joints but it's just right for us.
