“Delightful”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 9, 2013

We had dinner and lunch during the October half term week - made the point of visiting as we had had such a warm welcome on a previous visit. Very busy and buzzy. Efficient and quirky front of house. The comfortable and casual environment does perhaps mean that people expect lower prices - the food, however, is very special and worth every penny. Child and dog friendly. Very highly recommended. Thank you Blue Tomato.

“Really nice place”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 7, 2013 via mobile

Ate here twice in our half term break in Rock. Great atmosphere - every where else felt a bit like a chain!
Not just a great cafe in the day but worth visiting for dinner.
Try the specials board - all good but especially the fish and mussels.
Matt is the star with great energy and amazing service

“Simply Delicious”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

The annual trip to Padstow wouldn't be complete without lunch across the water at the Blue Tomato. The food here is absolutely delicious............it's as simple as that. Salt and pepper squid that is meltingly fresh and covered in the lightest of batters. Served with tasty aioli and delightful crispy thin fries.
Sea Bass fillets cooked to perfection with crispy skin and served on Greek salad. The combination of feta and olives giving a salty edge to enhance the flavour.
Friendly, attentive service make this place a delight

“Super service, lovely food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 29, 2013

We popped in here for a light lunch. The place has a lovely, informal atmosphere and there is a wide selection of food from coffee and cake to full three course meals.
We can recommend the thick milkshakes, sweet potato chips and the whitebait!

“Very good food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 26, 2013

We had a cream tea here in August and it was excellent , we returned this week for lunch, while the food looks expensive the portion sizes are good the service was excellent and the view over the estuary is lovely. We could not eat all the cream with the cream tea the portion was so generous.
Overall a very enjoyable lunch experience
