Fantastic food!

Had a lovely meal here for my Mum's birthday, had the Thermiodore and chicken. Both cooked and presented to a high standard. Very friendly staff. The kitchen is on show which is a great sign. Great food, great staff and great value. Definitely worth a visit.

Popped in for a cheeky Cornish Cream Tea. Really friendly staff, lovely immaculate restaurant and a really posh and tasty scones, cream, jam and a cuppa.

We popped into Pescadou to have our first ever Cornish Cream Tea - well when in Padstow, Cornwall, it would be wrong not to! The scones with jam and clotted cream with a pot of tea were absolutely divine. Very good value, and service with a smile from really friendly staff. Set in a really nice restaurant in a beautiful...

Booked a table the day after the local press had covered a story that all the local shell beds were contaminated with e-coli or something similar. limited menu. food ok but nothing to warrant the price structure.

We popped in here for a light lunch and were not disappointed. There is a great choice at very reasonable prices. We both opted for the Cornish mussels however it was a tough call as everything on the menu sounded amazing . Sit by the window for a beautiful view of the harbour.

Visited for lunch whilst in Padstow. The interesting lunch menu brought us in but was met by a surly waitress who enquires whether we were there for lunch or afternoon tea, at 2.10pm maybe it was a fair question.it was in fact the right question as I was there for lunch and my wife an afternoon tea . The restaurant... More

My wife and I shared a quality and unrushed anniversary dinner. The staff were polite and informed but there were long time gaps better ordering, delivery of drinks and courses. The menu might have benefited from at least one more option per course, it felt a tad restricted and too safe, given Padstow's wealth of potential local ingredients. But we'd... More

Had a little wait for a table but this passed quickly and comfortably in the bar. Meal was nice and service was attentive and prompt. Starters averaged £7 and mains £17 which I thought was oddly reasonable for the location and menu choices. Had scallops to start and Thermidor for main. Both very nice and filling. I think Pescadou is... More
