This is a smallish restaurant in Padstow. The menu changes quite a lot, but the food is good, especially the prawns! It is a little too cramped, but the service as always was excellent, the wine was delicious and dessert perfect.

Just dropped in for lunch while on holiday. Met with a smile from friendly staff who clearly had a customer focus without being overbearing. Lunch menu was varied with a reasonable 3 course lunch set price which we decided to take mainly because it featured Ricks Pondicheri fish curry. This was prepared with cod and was delicious so credit to... More

We have wanted to try one of Rick Stein's places for many years as we're fans of his TV shows. As soon as we booked our holiday to Cornwall, we booked in at the restaurant. The service was superb, we were very well looked after with plenty of waiting staff attending to us. We ordered a couple of starters, bruschetta,... More

Decided to go in here for morning coffee. The cafe is bright and had a nice atmosphere. We had three lattes and two banana loaves. It was nice but the lattes were tiny cups and cost £2.95 which wasn't worth it.

We took an unplanned visit to Padstow and needed to find somewhere for an interesting lunch. We chanced upon Rick Stein's Cafe which, happily for us, had a free table for 4 (no lunchtime table reservations). We could not fault the quality or freshness of the seafood choices, accompanied by a very fine Macon. Top notch service.

Had to visit Rick Stein Cafe whilst recently in Padstow and it was most enjoyable if pricy . The Cafe is situated in a side street and is bright and welcoming with a light faded 'beach chic ' inside with large abstract paintings on the walls. Smart , neat , tidy and polite waiting staff were attentive and happy to... More

Not been for a year or so, but instantly felt at home here - really friendly fun service; great atmosphere and fantastic food and extremely good value for money given the calibre of food and 'brand name'. Often need to reserve but not this time of year. Made to feel welcome and thoroughly enjoyable - management team should be very... More

Visited here on Friday night which was very busy so a nice atmosphere, however we felt it was average and over priced. I had the hake which was already £14, then I had to pay another £3 for the chips as the hake just came with a few leaves. We also felt we got forgotten about, the service was good... More

You will need to book in advance, the restaurant is quite small but stylish, spotlessly clean, helpful, pleasant staff and the most important bit the food It was absolutely superb. The prices are reasonable, you have the option of ordering individual items or the choice of 3 courses for a set fee, all from the same menu. The Masala Mussels,... More

Excellent food as you would expect from one of Rick Stein's establishments. The staff are all helpful and know the menu dishes well. My two issues would be the mark-up on the wine and that with some dishes you definitely need to order a side dish or leave hungry.
