This is some of the best food you'll get in Britain. The ingredients are top-class, the technique impeccable, and the way everything is put together demonstrates an enviable degree of imagination and creativity. The service is gracious and disciplined. This is as you;d expect from a gastronomic restaurant of deservedly high reputation. Unfortunately the tables in the dining room are... More

There were seven of us and we had the private room which already made it special. The restaurant is so tastefully designed and very intimate. The service was fantastic. All seven of us had three courses and every single one was a delight. Four of us had the bird liver parfait (duck, chicken and foie-gras) and we were in raptures... More

Had the set lunch which was super. Soup was something very special, fish so fresh and tasty and dessert great and I am not even keen on banana. Staff were very pleasant and helpful. Certainly recommend.

Probably the best food I have ever eaten - whilst we are not 'foodies', we have been to a few Michelin star restaurants. Book well in advance - we ended up with a 9.15pm sitting, so I was still in a happy food coma at midnight! Food was amazing, and service was fantastic. A definite 'must go' and the price... More

It really is all about the food - taste, smell, presentation, theatre. Treat yourself, it's well worth it and the set-menu is fantastic value for money considering the standard of food. We opted to choose from the normal menu for dessert, treating ourselves to the famous 'fairground tale'. Afraid to say we were a little underwhelmed. Not as much fun... More

Wow this place did not disappoint. Being in Padstow business premises are hard to come by so it was of no surprise that this restaurant is in what can be described as a house with several eating areas upstairs and downstairs. This allows the restaurant to be less formal but still serving superb food. We ate in the evening and... More

The setting is intimate and friendly, staff very attentive and charming, and food is amazing. It was the first ever Michelin Starred restaurant my sons have visited, and as the generation brought up with so many food programs, they were finally able to connect with all hyperbole and understand what all the fuss is about with Michelin Stars. Highly recommended!

Having visited Padstow last year and been able to dine here we made a point of visiting again purely to visit the restaurant. We certainly weren't disappointed. The restaurant is attractive, the staff fantastically friendly and cheerful without being irritating or over attentive. The food was superb, in fact the menu descriptions don't do justice to the delights you are... More

From the start of booking to the paying of the bill you knew you were in good hands. After booking on line the call to ask if we had any special requests/ celebrations set the tone. We had the set lunch with an encouraged and very good dessert variation. All three courses were well designed and executed and I am... More
