Worth the Wait

We have eaten here before and come back for the simple reason that although busy it remains friendly and sensibly priced, and they serve some of the nicest Italian Italian food you will find for many a mile.

My partner and I had dinner at this restaurant whilst staying for a short weekend in Padstow. We booked late, but were offered one of only two vacancies left for the evening and we were not disappointed. We both went for a seafood dinner (the menu is not only, but mainly seafood) and it was excellent. Drinks on arrival, followed... More

We came across this restaurant on a day trip to Padstow and are very pleased we waited for a table. Having endured the heaving throngs in Padstow, it came as a wonderful relief to find great service and wonderful food in a quiet, relaxed environment. The fish was fresh and very well cooked and the salads filling and tasty. I... More

An enjoyable birthday visit. The sea bass was very good, service spot on. I would return. Watch out if you are looking for a romantic meal in the holiday season the restaurant is big and may be a little noisy for some!

Called in for tea and cakes only to be told when ordering off the beverage and cakes menu that cakes could be obtained from old custom house round the corner. All that was on offer were cream tea, two types of muffin and cookies. The person serving did not even know if they were fruit scones or plain(turned out to... More

We ate one lunch and two dinners here in the course of our recent week long stay. All three meals were excellent, I particularly enjoyed the crab bisque starter and the stone bass main and also the fennel with pesto and the carrot with cumin veggies but all the meals we ate were interesting and delicious. The fish was all... More

Went once and loved it so much we just had to go back. The seafood thermidor was superb. Champagne was also a reasonable price - important when you are on holiday. Had a great table towards the back of the restaurant - no harbour view but was spacious and quiet (just what I like when I am eating out). Service... More

We made a last minute booking which they were able to squeeze us in at 21.00. Turned up 15 minutes early and was directed straight to our table. Service was excellent throughout and the highlight of the evening was my fiancée's choice of the Seafood Thermidor which was delicious. Whilst the menu is not very extensive we felt there was...
