This was one of the restaurants we wanted to dine at during our road trip in Devon/Cornwall, and I booked it 2 months beforehand. It was a lunch for our anniversary, so worthwhile to splash out a bit. It was a Wednesday lunch at 1pm, and the restaurant was full! It was a big restaurant so that's pretty impressive. Service...

After a stunning walk around Stepper Point in the morning, can't think of a better way to enjoy the afternoon than visiting the Seafood Restaurant for the well priced 3 course set lunch. Great choice of starters, main and desert suplemented by a reasonably priced wine list all ensured we had a truly wonderful meal, spread over 2 hours. The... More

The reputation of this restaurant is well known and our out of season visit found its reputation to be justified. Efficient and pleasant service with a long and varied menu. We were on a foodie break sponsored by the Stein empire so we're well aware of their wine prices in other venues - they were hiked in this establishment above... More

This place is a great experience and well worth a visit. I had monkfish vindaloo. It was amazing and so different without being too hot. I would never normally have a vindaloo as it's too hot for me but this was fine. My partner had lobster thermidore and she believes it's the best ever!

This was the absolute best meal that I have ever had outside of Michelin star restaurants. It really was difficult to fault over quality and service delivery. I had mussels for starter, plaice for main course and apple tart in for dessert. It was delicious absolutely amazing. My husband had langoustine bisque, fish pie and cheesecake equally as delicious...... I... More

This restaurant is quite large and there are lots of small tables put near to each other, which can be a turn off, as you can hear every word people are saying and you tend to speak softly! We had a lovely young lad who was in charge of us for the evening. We ordered our wine and when the... More

Rick Stein has managed to develop a wonderful team spirit amongst the staff at this restaurant. The service matches any London restaurant. The staff are friendly, skilled and knowledgeable. Obviously the menu is mainly fish and seafood but it is extensive and imaginative. The food is excellent and the wine list is very good.

We've been here a few times and this restaurant has never failed to deliver excellence in food, drinks, atmosphere and service. Last night we ate scallops, fish soup, Dover Sole, red mullet, liquorice meringue and banana tarte tatin. We drank an Argentinian Merlot and were served by a lovely waitress. A Fantastic evening and we are already looking forward to... More

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.
