Excellent dinner

My wife and I are here for the first time on a Wednesday evening in February. The restaurant wasn't packed, but it was far from empty. The food was excellent, and the service terrific.

Atmosphere and ambience was fantastic. Can't fault the service. Staff so knowledgable of the food and wine. The little extras from the kitchen were a fab touch too. However I don't think the food was worth the money we paid. It was an experience but we will try somewhere else next time.

We could not visit Padstow without trying one of Mr Steins outlets. We had lunch at The Seafood Restaurant. The staff were very informative about the menu and guided us to stunning pasta dishes. The pasta was well cooked with a really flavoursome sauce. The whole experience was excellent. Great to see Chalky remembered as a bronze statue by the... More

Well known as the top restaurant owned by Rick Stein and now run by his son Jack. We went for a good value off season charity lunch. It's never cheap here but the service by attentive staff is amazing. Book well ahead as it's nearly always full.

It's a famous fish and chip shop in Padstow, Cornwall. Heard a lot about it so thought I'll try it out. It's ok to eat their but I wouldn't fancy going their aging to eat.

Eight family members enjoyed a great Saturday lunch at Stein's to celebrate a birthday. We selected from the Special £19.00 Charity /lunch menu. There was a good range of choice. I loved the soup and could quite happily have supped some more! So flavoursome! I enjoyed the Fish Curry but the star of the show was the wonderful Orange tarte... More

The perfect venue for an anniversary dinner. Sometimes "celebrity chef" restaurants are disappointing, especially, if they have been around for a long time. This restaurant definitely does not rest on it's laurels. It's a beautiful room with fantastic artwork. The service is attentive without being oppressive and the food is superb. The seafood platter that was my starter consisted of... More
