Is Rick Stein the mayor of Padstow?

We had a lovely meal here. The prices were definitely London however. The service was good but you could tell some were summer job workers who were towing the line. The food though shone through and we really enjoyed our meal. Padstow is gorgeous and there's lot to choose from, but this is a good... read more

My boyfriend & I visited Rick Stein's for breakfast & was very disappointed. He ordered the "full" English which didn't included bread! So in my opinion should not be called the full english. I had the banana bread/toast which was a very small thinly sliced portion & iv made better myself, I wanted the breakfast bhaji but they had sold... More

As a frequent visitor to all of Rick Stein's establishments for many years, it pains me to give the Cafe an Average review. Since visiting September 2014, the front of house service seems to have slipped. We ordered bread, which never came, we were then offered it at the end of our meal which we declined. The same person who... More

We ate here tonight and were a bit disappointed, although the food was good the whole experience was not. Despite booking more than two weeks ahead on line we had the worst table in the restaurant, next to the servers point so constant comings and goings. People coming in to make bookings were virtually on our table. Also booking online... More

We had booked the cafe for 4 on the 29th&30th June. On the 29th no complaints about the food or the service but the portions were tiny. My salad of mackerel fillets was one fillet about the size of a decent whitebait and the 3 tiny plaice goujons were hardly a mouthful. But, the best bit was, we ordered a... More

Very pleased with our meal, we chose cod curry with a lentil Dahl , we were not disappointed, very tasty and hot enough we were warned! Followed by treacle tart and ice cream...why not spoil yourself. Do book on line early as it seems very popular. The staff were very pleasant....had time to chat to us oldies! They recommended wine... More

We had an early evening meal here during our week long stay in Padstow. The menu is good, but uncomplicated and served in a modest sized restaurant by very friendly and attentive staff. I've gone on so much about the Salt and Pepper Prawns to my wife that she's promised to get the recipe and have a go at making... More

Arrived at opening times so expected food to be fresh being the first people in. This was not the case. Expected high standards however the batter on the fish was burnt, small amount in fish inside the terrible batter, chips rock hard and burnt. Such a shame

We have been going to Rick Steins Cafe for the last five years and have always looked forward to this as our holiday treat. However, when we visited the cafe on the 29/06/15 we were all left slightly underwhelmed. We ordered the fish goujons and the portion was small with only three pieces of plaice. The waitors were all very... More
