Seafood Bliss

Been here 7 years in a row when visiting family in Cornwall, and always ask for a bar seat, truly one of the best restaurants in the UK, I'll be back next year.

As long time admirers of Rick Stein's programmes, we decided to book into his hotel for one night as we were going to St Ives. Naturally a table in his restaurant was a must. Photographs of the outside do not do this place justice, when you get inside it is a delightful place. I booked for what I thought was... More

We visited to celebrate our wedding anniversary with close friends and we were made very welcome. Food and wine was, as expected excellent and style exactly as you would expect - all about ingredients and flavour rather than pretentious 'fine dining'. Portions are generous, I had two starters in place of conventional starter plus main, with the side dishes recommended... More

We enjoyed a delightful 3 course set lunch here for £40 per person (vegetables were additional). My starter of hake in chickpea coating with masala dip was delicious, as was my main of meurette of plaice fillets with Beaujolais and mushrooms. The pistachio ice-cream was nice (3 decent scoops). Service was slick & surroundings classy.

Four of us had lunch today and thought it was a first rate experience & the lunchtime menu was excellent value for money. The staff were very pleasant & attentive and the food of the highest quality & cooked to perfection. Couldn't fault it.

Contemporary decor, unpretentious in atmosphere and service. A fabulous menu with lots of fish (obviously!) but with a variety of flavourings, such as my starter - Amritsari Fish, in chick pea flower, ginger and garlic and chat masala -brilliant.Main course for me was my favourite fish Whole Dover Sole, with sea salt and lime - cooked to perfection!!

We came to Padstow on our motorhome tour of Cornwall and were determined to treat ourselves to a special meal here. We hadn't made a reservation, and there were no tables available, but as we were early for lunchtime we were able to eat at the bar with the same menu. After a great deal of deliberation (the menu is... More

Food great, service nearly perfect save for our dessert being served to the wrong table. They did rectify it quickly though but it does beg the question about standards. It was also strange that the other table started to eat it even though it wasn't what they had ordered! Last visited about 12 years ago and although it is expensive... More

We couldn't stay in Padstow without visiting this famous restaurant and I'm very relieved to say it didn't disappoint. It's a much larger place than I anticipated, but that only added to the atmosphere. All the staff we encountered were well trained and extremely helpful and friendly, especially our waitress. The presentation isn't Michelin starred and doesn't have pretensions to... More

Went with a family party of 12. The staff were amazing very knowledgeable and friendly and the food amazing. If you are visiting Padstow then you must do the Rick Stein experience at least once. I for one will be doing it again on my next visit that is for sure.
