We have had this table nearly as Long as we have had our cottage booked. Every bite was second to none . Highlight for me was my Dover sole - gorgeous! My partner had lobster salad to start and said it was delicious (I did taste a little bit) Service v friendly but not over the top. Expensive but would... More

After many years of visiting Padstow we thought it high time we had a meal in Rick Steins famous seafood restaurant and we were not disappointed. As you would expect the Restaurant was really busy but the service was exceptional from start to finish & quite simply the food was of the highest quality as well. We will visit again... More

Nothing much more to say. Expected the best, and got it. Expected it to cost quite a lot, and it did. Worth every penny. Traveled from New York to experience a great lunch, and it was worth the trip. Two hours of great food, great wine, great ambience, and great service. I went simple...grilled mackerel, fish and chips, and pavlova...perfection... More

We had a superb 3 course meal. A good child's menu, my fish soup and fizzy gin strawberry deserts were two of the best starter and deserts ever. My wife's lobster risotto and local lobster were also excellent. Service was friendly and efficient. Would definitely repeat.

I have read and listened to many mixed views on Rick's Seafood Restaurant in Padstow! I ignored them all and visited this August to find out for myself! Quite simply, super service & fantastic food topped off with a robust rose wine... Can't wait to visit again..

Having enjoyed watching Rick Stein extol the virtues of both seafood and Padstow for many years, we were really looking forward to visiting The Seafood Restaurant in person. And we weren't disappointed. My sashimi starter was beautiful and fresh; my wife's Indonesian prawn and octopus starter was fabulous. But both we're put in the shade by the HUGE Cornish crabs;...

This was our second time here and it was just as good if not better! There was a mix up with our booking which was our fault but the manager here was very helpful and he arranged for us to sit at the bar and it was brilliant, you really feel the buzz! The guy that was serving us was... More

The food here is excellent. I had the madras fish curry, which was wonderfully deep in flavour. The naan, rice, and mango chutney were all superb accompaniments. My wife had the hake and chips, which were very good indeed. My one gripe about the seafood restaurant, is that the tables are just too close together. You know when you get... More

Having eaten in the Bistro several years ago we decided we would eat and stay at the Seafood restaurant for our return We arrived after a tiring journey from Berkshire to be greeted warmly by the lovely receptionist. She showed us to our room, which was large well fitted with a view of the harbour. We stayed for three nights,... More
