Yum!

Strange location but fantastic fish & chips. I went for the Winter special and it was just as good as my husbands 'custom' dish, in fact, probably better. Can recommend it.

The best fish and chips in Padstow in my opinion ... but I'm afraid I've been spoilt by Bizzy's in Skipton!

After a disappointing meal at the seafood restaurant I was looking forward to eating at the other end of the spectrum, the waitress was very friendly and helpful and suggested the fresh squid so we ordered a starter portion to share so I was a bit surprised to find the fresh squid was still frozen when served! So much for... More

We drove from Newquay to Padstow just for Stein's! Got an amazing winter deal with fish & chips, bread & butter and a Cornish lager all for 7.95! We loved the food - the boyfriend said it was the best fish & chips he ever had - and the staff was very lovely too!

On a miserable February day what better way to raise the soul (no pun intended) than a hot lunch especially when it comes in the form of cod and chips with bread and butter washed down with a cup of tea all for £6:99. Freshly cooked in the chip shop behind us the battered cod is exquisitely crisp and thin... More

Very tasty fish, friendly staff. We shared a table with another couple who recommended the fish. We had the Winter Special which was £6.95 for fish, chips, bread and butter and a tea or coffee, bargain! Can't wait to visit again!

Very busy even on a February evening. Service great and very slick. Selection of fish very extensive and appetising. To be honest I wasn't overly impressed by the chips which were very ordinary- even a bit soggy. Prices are way above a standard chippy but certainly an experience

Well wow! The presentation alone was fantastic. We had researched the restaurant before visiting Padstow and on arrival were not disappointed, the Fish was decorated with a simple lemon wedge which really enhanced the flavour. A true experience of the harbour town!!

We have visited several times in the past and we were in the area so decided to have lunch on a Saturday in Feb half term...
