Went today for a 2.45 charity lunch. Starters we had were salmon and beetroot and I had anchovies. We followed that with baked hake with lentils and the dessert we chose was chocolate tart with cinnamon ice cream. This is the first charity lunch that we have attended at the Seafood restaurant and for £19.95 plus a cover charge of... More

Visited the first day of these lunches arrived to a very busy restaurant for our 3pm lunch and we were shown immediately to our table, the waitress greeted us with a smile, gave us the menus etc. These 3 course lunches are very good value with 3 choices of each starter, main and dessert plus the small donation going to...

Once again we had a lovely meal, but nothing exciting, or new. The staff are always pleasant, and work hard. The place was very busy on the Friday evening, so service was rather slow - nearly 40 minutes until the starter appeared after we were sat at the table. Very kindly they managed to find us a table for lunch... More

We stayed here on a two night dinner bed and breakfast rate. Our bedroom overlooked the estuary and was beautifully decorated with a well thought out bathroom. Molton Brown products, always a plus in my books. We dined in the seafood restaurant on the first night which was lovely. The food was amazing, helped by the fact we had asked... More

Let me just say, I have been going to the Seafood Restaurant since the 1980's......and totally love it! The whole restaurant has grown and changed and is still wonderful! We have stopped for special occasions twice, once with our boxer dog and once with no dogs. Dogs are welcomed as 'Chalkys pals' a la Rick Steins lovely late and lamented... More

I'll have to start by saying that this restaurant is amazing. From the minute you walk in you are greeted by the most friendly and helpful staff you can wish for. Me and my boyfriend are great seafood lovers and had starters of oysters and scallops which were delicious, followed by a fruit de mer for two, dessert and coffee.... More

We booked lunch in advance of our stay in the area and were very happy with the visit, it was the 3 course charity lunch menu. It was a very wet and windy day and the welcome, quality of the service and the food soon made you forget about the outside weather conditions. The restaurant was full but this didn't... More

Absolutely love Padstow and The Seafood Restaurant is the finest restaurant/hotel it has to offer. Top quality food, heaven for a seafood fan. Rooms are clean, modern and well equipped. Lovely tea and snacks in the room. Fine bed linen and fittings. Real pleasure to stay here, will return soon.

Dropped in without booking for dinner and pleased to say we were accommodated. Very pleasant surroundings. The female waiting staff were a delight & very efficient and could do with passing some of their charm to their male colleagues who were able to deliver the main course without saying a thing!

Description
Opened by Rick Stein and Jill Stein in 1975, The Seafood Restaurant in Padstow is famous for establishing an international reputation for the very freshest fish and shellfish, often landed on our doorstep. Head chef, Stephane Delourme and his team create simple seafood dishes with classic flavours using Rick's recipes. We have a seafood bar right in the middle of the restaurant where you can watch chefs assembling platters of oysters, langoustines and sashimi. No reservations are required for the bar and you can order anything from the a la carte menu.
