Rick Stein should be very pleased with the lovely staff at his café. We stayed above the café in the B&B and had breakfast in the café three mornings and enjoyed them all. The food is yummy, with a good choice too. The prices are mid-range, but the food was fresh and hot and well presented. There's... read more

I really used to love this place, but I do not know what has happened to it!! There were 8 of us including a baby. We waited yonks' for staff to take drink orders, and the waitress that took our order was so scary that you almost forgot what you wanted. The salt and pepper king prawns were not in... More

The first time I have been to Padstow, but this restaurant a favourite of my partners. We booked an early table and were not disappointed. Three courses for £23.50 very good value. The lad who looked after us was brilliant, very knowledgeable and very attentive. We order a couple of snacks to keep us going as we had not had... More

The cafe was extremely busy with families and couples - great we thought, lots of atmosphere! We arrived slightly early; our table was not ready so we were asked to sit in a corridor while the table was prepared. I was a bit surprised as it felt like we were in a doctors or dentist's waiting area for an appointment... More

We ate at the Seafood, the Basement, the Olive Tree, Scarlett's, St Tudys Inn and St Kew Inn and this was far and away the most enjoyable experience of all. All the dishes were well executed and served with friendly and professional service. Good value and I cannot recommend enough.

Whilst in Padstow my husband and I dined at Rick Stein's cafe. Believe me this is not to be confused with any old cafe. The food was top class and utterly delicious. Rick has set the bar very high in this establishment. The atmosphere was great, the staff extremely warm & welcoming and their efficiency shone through. Tables were cleared... More

Four of us visited the cafe for a pre-booked dinner. The atmosphere was relaxed and friendly and the service was very good. We all enjoyed the food we ordered and would pay another visit if we were in Padstow again.

Booked meal here as it was recommended to us. Small but nice surroundings but rather a limited menu. As I didn't want anything from the starter menu I chose the dipping bread but was told I couldn't have this as part of the set menu even though it was cheaper than any of the starters. I would have liked another... More

The four of us visited on a Saturday evening in July, we originally went to the posh restaurant as we were confused about the venue as nearly every other establishments seems to be owned by Rick! A patisserie, a deli, a restaurant, cafe and chip shop. When we went to the restaurant we were rather snootily told that we didn't... More

We had the beer battered cod and chips with a nice Petit Chablis for lunch at this cafe. The fish was very good, the chips could have been a bit crispier and the wine enjoyable. All in all a good meal, consistent with the other times we have been here. A bit steep from a price point of view being... More
