About Rick Stein Porthleven
With fantastic harbour views, our restaurant in Porthleven uses local and seasonal produce to create dishes inspired by Rick’s travels around the world such as Goan cod curry, salt and pepper prawns, classic Cornish fish and chips, and steaks.
By day, we have something for everyone – light seafood dishes, set menus and dishes suited to more leisurely long lunch with a glass of wine or two. By night the pace slows to a more intimate and cosy experience, with fresh fish and seafood and its very best.
We had a delightful lunch. Our starter of scallops was cooked to perfection and utterly delicious. We then enjoyed your lunchtime special of fish and chips for the bargain price of £9.99. Sitting overlooking the harbour of Porthleven enjoying a glass of crisp white wine on a beautiful summer's day was utter perfection. We shall be back!
Everyone and the food was lovely! The kindness that Claudia showed us was immeasurable and I would love to say thank you to the other lovely gent in the stripy shirt (sorry I didnt get your name) who was on who made sure everything went as we liked. Basically a massive thank you for a lovely evening, it was absolutely delicious food and we loved every second.
We had a fantastic meal, a truly wonderful atmosphere and really friendly professional staff.
The atmosphere in the restaurant was lively. The first course of moules was delicious , however the main course took a long time to come and was only warm when they arrived . The dishes themselves were tasty . The desserts were very good . The biggest disappointment was the service levels. The waiter was pleasant when summoned but not attentive and always on the otherside of the balcony and difficult to call over.
Absolutely loved it! Was a bit dubious (thinking it's all in a name etc) but I was not disappointed. Great, friendly service and delicious food in great portion sizes. Honestly could not fault anything. Thank you :-)
Food was amazing would recommend it I did feel the puddings were a little over priced but they were good
We had a family meal here for my Dads 60th. The service we received was brilliant nothing was too much trouble and did not seemed forced at all. The food was good, my mackerel starter was slightly off balance for my taste but everyone enjoyed their food and we would go back.
Absolutely fantastic night, with great service, food and ambience, 10/10, we would definitely recommend, looking forward to our next visit, thank you all.
We were really looking forward to our fish and chips as we had them last year and it was the best fish and chips we had ever had..we were so disappointed with it this year dont get me wrong the fish was amazing but the portion was defo not large a few fries and small fish we may have come a couple of hours earlier and paid 8 pounds less we even questioned the waitress if it was large and she said yes god knows how what you get at lunch ! Wont be coming again!
Really enjoyed the food all delicious and a great menu. The staff were lovely friendly and service excellent . Our only complaint would be the coffee and I'm afraid when I went to pay the bill which was quite alot as there were 7 of us with 5 people having starters and mains plus a bottle of wine and other drinks nothing was made of my complaint about the coffee which I feel was not good customer relations
Waiter was lovely and knowledgable and attentive. The food came out very quickly so felt like we were being a bit rushed to begin with but settled down and had time to savour the food even though they needed the table back at 8pm. Great ceviche and scallops!
Good value for money
We loved our meal at Rick Stein in Porthleven. Every course for both of us was delicious and we will definitely return. The only thing missing was a smile on the faces of the two young ladies who served us. They seemed to be very serious indeed!
The Lady who met us on entering was very friendly and welcoming. The food was delicious. We’ll definitely book again when we visit Cornwall next time.
We were very disappointed by the quality of the food. It was extremely expensive but the fish (we both had the plaice) was dreadful. We had such high hopes with Rick Stein’s name on the restaurant but the food absolutely did not live up to this. The plaice was supposed to be grilled but tasted more like it had been poached. The skin (cut into a strange pattern) was flabby and inedible and the fish itself was tasteless. The potatoes were drowning in butter. I was also disappointed that we had to pay extra for vegetables. We had the green beans but these were horrible in the clotted cream (again, drowning in it).
Beautiful, delicious food in surprisingly generous portions. Maybe a bit more jam in the bakewell tart; other than that, a faultless experience.
From start to finish the food, setting and service was first class.
Fabulous to be here despite the weather!
My crab linguine was so salty I was inedible. My wife and kids were happy with their foods.
Very slow service. Not as accommodating for kids as website suggested. Adult courses came out quite a bit before the kids who had to sit and wait. Colouring had to be asked for not offered. We ended up ordering dessert whilst eating our mains to reduce the waiting time. When it did arrive the food was delicious.
Really love the online booking- so useful and easy to use. Staff are always really friendly.
Absolutely wonderful as usual ..... food amazing ....ambience and service exceptional. Thank you to Claudia and team.
Esperaba más. Comida muy corriente a precios desorbitados. He comido mejor en cafés cercanos.
We had the half Lobster and the Indonesian fish curry....... Both so delicious and fresh. The curry was out of this world though. Our waitress was absolutely brilliant, so happy and friendly.
