Never mind the Hatton jewellery raid, the leg of ham in Rick steins must be worth millions of pounds ! £16.50 for 5 small wafer thin slices ham and some bread ! So disappointed, our waitress looked so surprised when I raised this... Went to Paul Ainsworth's the day before WOW a different league. move over Rick and your 70's... More

Visited a couple of weeks back and feel compelled to leave a review. Simply great food, expensive yes, but it's on par with the michelin star restaurants I've been to so I don't see that as a negative. Also great service and unlike some places didn't feel judged being there so I'd advise a visit if going to Padstow

We visited Rick Steins 'The Seafood Restaurant' in Padstow on our final evening of a business trip to Cornwall. The whole experience was a delight from the moment we stepped in. The decor, the ambience, food and staff. We would especially like to mention Simon our waiter who was a definite making to our enjoyment. His knowledge and guidance to... More

We had dinner here this evening with our friends to celebrate their 35th wedding anniversary. My starter Lobster salad was disappointing but my main course of Dover Sole was lovely and served off the bone beautifully by the polite young waitress . The hot chocolate fondant dessert was delicious. Before coffee was served I visited the ladies room to find... More

I've wanted to visit The Seafood Restaurant for so long so I decided to book it as a surprise for my partners birthday. We are both big foodies, especially lovers of good fish and seafood. This is now my favourite local (ish) restaurant! The food was absolutely faultless, the restaurant and atmosphere therein was fantastic. The staff were very knowledgable,... More

Wonderful choice of fish and seafood dishes.The service is very good and the atmosphere very pleasant. A memorable meal. It is difficult to suggest that this is value for money, it is expensive but occasionally worth it.

We booked here to start off our weekend in Cornwall celebrating a friend's milestone birthday and it didn't disappoint. With the added luck of a gorgeous sunny day, the restaurant looked lovely - modern yet not bare, but that clean, fresh and simple décor that adds to your dining experience. Fabulous artwork on the walls too! We chose from the... More

Fantastic fresh seafood. Wonderful service. Catered for our severely allergic (to egg and milk) 8 year old son brilliantly. Highly recommended
