A very good menu with both our choices beyond our expectations. Some excellent wine at very competitive prices. Highly recommended.

Pescadou doesn't let you down. Our last visit was a birthday celebration and this one was for our anniversary, on both occasions the staff were a delight. Scallops followed by Sea Bass with a side order of Samphire made a delicious meal without paying silly prices that some may have charged in Padstow. We pre book a window table and... More

We went for a cream tea and the clue was perhaps in the fact that the restaurant was amiss empty. We weren't permitted to sit in the restaurant area even though it was virtually empty, there was a separate area for afternoon tea which was completely empty. The tables were stained and sticky. One of the saucers was chipped with... More

We were made very welcome by the staff and we had a nice, healthy lunch. The food is good quality with minimal 'human interference'. Very fresh produce, presented well. I would definitely go back again.

Generous and tasty cream tea served in a relaxed environment, overlooking this beautiful harbour. The restaurant benefits from a fortunate location but this has not borne laziness or poor service. An afternoon well spent.

There are a lot of places to eat in Padstow and my husband and I were struggling to decide on which restaurant to choose on our first night of a 3 night break. We looked at the menu outside Pescadou and decided to give it a try - what a good decision. I started with the cauliflower soup with blue... More

We have always walked past Pescadou during previous visits to Padstow which on reflection was such a mistake. We did not book in advance, simply 'taking a chance', but were not disappointed. The food here is fantastic!! The staff really friendly, and the restaurant very clean and comfortable. For the type of food and environment we thought it was good... More
