Our first visit was perfect - great food and service (although could have more choice) We decided to visit again. This time the service was hap hazard. We received our starters before bread and oil. We did not have anyone ask for our... More

We had two meals in the restaurant last week. Both meals were really lovely. The crab bisque was superb and the cod and steak were excellent. The staff were very friendly and professional. I would really recommend the restaurant as we have eaten there many times previously when visiting Padstow and it has always been to the same high standard.... More

We had morning coffee here and liked the atmosphere so decided to book for dinner. Very pleasant surroundings and excellent food and service. We were made to feel very welcomed. Excellent sticky toffee pudding. Would highly recomend.

Friendly and attentive staff, but food was ordinary. Watery and tasteless mussels, followed by a tough and flavourless sirloin. My wife had gnocchi, but was mainly slimy mushrooms. £60 for two courses and glass of wine each, so value not bad. Food was a disappointment though

A lovely setting on Padstow harbour. It's part of the Old Custom House next door. We have eaten in Pescadou previously, and it's a family favourite. We booked online, and were glad we did as people were being turned away. Had a fantastic meal here, and couldn't fault a thing. The service was just right too. Friendly, efficient & helpful.... More

Four of us recently dined at this restaurant and the experience can be summed up with one word...SUPERB. The staff were pleasant and attentive and the food was very good indeed. The dressed crab dish is to die for, and the bowl of Mussels was so huge it couldn't all be consumed. The other member of the party had the... More

This restaurant was recommended by Barclays Premiere Concierge Service as a last minute place and they booked them on my behalf. I was a bit hesitant and really wanted to try Rick Steins, but they were fully booked. The service time and standard was average compared to other restaurants of a similar quality. The meals were delicious and well cooked.... More
