Great selection of fish on the menu, complemented by excellent wine list. Unpretentious air in restaurant with staff who were friendly, well informed about the menu and were attentive rather than intrusive. We really enjoyed this restaurant.

It is still as marvellous as it ever was. A very special fish restaurant and far better than any I have tried in France. I started with the small seafood platter which was huge with a fantastic variety of shellfish - razor fish, scallop still attached to its shell, crab claws, oysters, pallourds, clams, mussels, prawns etc. far too much...

Quite impressed by this place - came for lunch and thought it good value. The dishes were prepared with care and had a seasonal feel - plenty of peas, broadbeans and mint which gave a lovely spring / early summer feel. The fish was well cooked. The service was excellent - we were very well looked after. Wine list fine... More

Even though there was a mix up with our booking, the staff were very professional and gave us free drinks and bar snacks while we waited for a table. The food is exceptional, quality, combination, presentation, it really enables the diner to understand just what Rick explains on his TV programmes, how he learns about ingredients, combines them, serves and...

Lovely location overlooking Padstow harbour. Very attentive staff. Excellent menu. The food was very good and portion size was unexpectedly large. Sometimes 'famous names' don't live up to expectations- this one did!

This is a very well run restaurant with excellent staff. Parking is easy nearby (except maybe in summer or bank holiday!). The fish is really fresh. You're served your food in a carton (which is unusual but fine). We've been there in summer and had to queue outside but it's worth the wait.
