31/12/2015. Guests book in at the Seafood Restaurant, a member of staff offers to carry your luggage and a companies you to Rick Steins Cafe. Accommodation is very comfortable and stylish and dogs are wellcome to. The 3 course meal for New Year's Eve deserved a 10/10 with choices for each course. Good food and wine the service was excellent.... More

Visited Padstow and did not intend to go to Rick Stein , thinking it was all PR hype : but decided to book as the Cafe seemed to offer the best choice / price combination in Padstow. Our reservation was for 19.15 ( next sitting was 21.00 ) and we arrived early to a near empty restaurant , but by... More

Booked this instead of Seafood restaurant as wanted a Rick Stein food experience, without a heavy bill at he end. (had been told The Seafood restaurant was very £££, but we discussed this with one of the staff at the Café and from what she told us, I don't think it would of been overly £££, so on our next...

We ate here on the second night of our stay having eaten at Rocks Steins Seafood restaurant the first night. The food was excellent but more relaxed than the main restaurant, enjoyed the evening. Can highly recommend.

Lively dining experience with a good choice of great fish food. The cafe is small but this added to the atmosphere. Waiting staff are friendly but are clearly placed in the cafe as a development opportunity. Our meal was given to another couple.

We visited as part of a winter deal package and chose to eat at the Cafe on our first night. We had in our minds that, if available, we would like to have an Asian/Indian theme to our meal. We were not disappointed as hubby chose the salt and pepper prawns and I had the Pau Bahji with us both... More
