The service at this restaurant is fantastic as you would expect with these prices. I was very impressed by the fact that even new members of the team were so good at their jobs. The food was absolutely delicious and worth the money! The layout of the restaurant is interesting. All in all a great experience.

A table of nine of us ate here for lunch mid-week in July for a 50th birthday celebration. The service was very good, we were served by Nick who provided the right mix of humour, professionalism and politeness. We had a bottle of Prosesco to start, the rose wine (No 14 - I believe Rick Stein first tried this in... More

Arrived 20 minutes early and sat in conservatory/waiting area. Very nice staff and lovely nibbles of white fish satay before being shown to table on time. Waiter was excellent with good detailed descriptions and suggestions. I had a mixed raw fish starter and my wife had the lobster risotto. Both dishes were fantastic I thought. My wife thought the lobster... More

I got a surprise treat when my boyfriend and I visited Cornwall on a last minute trip when we had a rare free weekend together. I had told him when we decided to go down to the West Country, that I had always wanted to go to Padstowe and particularly to The Stein's Seafood Restaurant since falling in love with... More

I visited for lunch and the food as usual was gorgeous. I had Prawn,pork & squid glass noodle salad to start, it was really tasty and had enough heat with out being overpowered by chilli. My main course choice was Hake with tomato & fennel which was fabulous. I always enjoy eating here and have never been disappointed.

The food was 100%, the staff 99%, service 'could do better', and the air conditioning well it wasn't. A party of eight, so the variety of food served was broad, and was superb. The wine was excellent, the staff were tidy, and friendly - however the serving of the food was not up to the standard that is expected in... More

As my family and I were going to be in Cornwall for my birthday we decided to book into the restaurant as a birthday treat.. We booked 3 months in advance and were still not able to get the date and time we wanted, but we're glad we actually got a table. My parents opted for the 3 courses for... More

My husband & I had lunch at the restaurant today. We had the 3 course set menu which had plenty of choice and, for the standard of the food, was very reasonable at £38.50 each. I had fish & shellfish soup followed by hake with spinach and beurre blanc which was divine. My husband had mussels followed by pan-fried ray... More
