“Could have been soooo much better”
Reviewed February 14, 2013 via mobile

Having booked a week in advance, as it was Valentines night, we were greeted by front of house who couldn't find our reservation. We were then ushered to the worst possible table of the restaurant, a tiny 2 person table under the stairs by the front door which we then named The "Harry Potter" table. The restaurant was not full, and my girlfriend asked to move tables, either to upstairs or anywhere else in fact! After a few minutes a young man came over ( we assumed to be the manager) offered us another table downstairs which we gratefully took. However when we went upstairs we were pleasantly surprised to find a bar, more subdued lighting and spare tables. Why were we not offered this option? Paul, you are missing an opportunity here! When booking a table, perhaps you could offer your clientele a chance to have a drink in the bar followed by a more intimate table upstairs? However, the food was delicious, and our waitress, Abby, was exemplary. Our main courses consisted of 2 pizza and a salad to share, we did have to ask for plates, but that was fine. The sweets were poor in presentation, served in small bowls, rather resembling school dinners. Tasted fine mind you. There were candles on the tables, but the lighting was quite bright so this again spoiled the atmosphere. We must add that the previous night we ate at number 6 and it was amazing. However, my small constructive criticism is dress your windows! It changes the atmosphere and makes things more intimate. We did enjoy our evening but felt that the poor management let things down. Attention to detail and awareness of your clientele needs are paramount.

“last minute booking ....but first class meal”
Reviewed February 13, 2013

Had another quick trip to Padstow and knew that Sunday would be difficult to find somewhere decent to eat in the evening. We just called in on spec whilst walking by Rojanos in the afternoon and manged to reserve a table that night.

We didn't know what to expect as we hadn't researched the restaurant. So it was a great surprise to have one of the best meals out we have had in a long time. Unbelievably good quality food and service. I didn't think it was overly expensive and the bottle of vouvray we had was excellent. The only down side was that the balsamic vinegar was a bit harsh and attacked the back of my throat a little.....but this didn't alter the positive view we had on our first visit there.

We will definately book in advance when we next visit Padstow.

“Good, but you have to pay for it”
Reviewed February 10, 2013

We are regular visitors to Rojanos, the food and service is always of a very high standard, but you do have to pay for it. The prices have been noticebly increasing over the last 18m and it is now a destination place, rather than just pop in for a quick meal. Please don't get greedy!
