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.
Superb Sunday lunch. We were a party of five including a three year old. All of us were made to feel most welcome, and it was clear they knew how to cater well for children. The staff were friendly and professional and looked after us extremely well. Our meals were delicious and very good value. We shall look forward to returning.
Enjoyable lunch, reasonable choice and value for money. Food high quality (as expected!).
Everthing was great, thank you. Hope to visit again soon.
Having been a few times our expectations are high. I thought that the baked cod (lunch set menu) had far too many peas: fish beautiful, taste of peas overwhelming!
We visited porthleven rick stein for the first time yesterday. After recently moving nearby. We have visited many of ricks other Restaurants all different in their cuisine & style. Porthleven is not to be confused with the seafood restaurant (which is the flag ship restaurant offering high end cuisine) This was much more rustic not so much choice on the menu,but still very enjoyable well cooked food. The set menu was good value for money as well as the Thursday menu for the over 60’s The atmosphere was lovely & we were lucky to have a window seat looking over the harbour Service was excellent,even down to being given a wine tasting as we couldn’t make our mind up from the large selection on the wine list The only thing we would say is that my wife is pescatarian & that was not much choice for her However after speaking to the young lady behind the bar,we were informed that if we wanted a fruits de mere that is something they could do if given prior notice The fish & chips were beautifully cooked & well seasoned The sashimi we felt was a little underwhelming for the price The decor & ambience was lovely & we will definitely be back to use our local club vouchers
I booked a table for myself and 9 of my friends. We had the most amazing time. The food was delicious and fantastic value for money. Two of us had the ceased salad to start which was pretty disappointing in comparison to the other starters which we’re superb. It was just a massive bowl of lettuce leaves with oily croutons. We all had roast other than one guest which was delicious! If we were to fault it slightly we all agreed the gravy was a bit on the salty side, but it was still one of the best roasts I’ve had in a long time. The one thing that stuck out for all of us was our fantastic waiter. Unfortunately we didn’t get her name, she had brown hair and wore glasses. She was so lovely and made the whole dinning experience such a joy, recommending the best food to get. A true credit to the resteraunt! Please pass on our thanks to her.
Very enjoyable eating experience. Our only critical comment is that the toilet was not in a very good condition!
Hope to be back with you soon!
Good food; slightly sterile environment
Promptly seated, nice view. My mum looking forward to senior's Thursday special of fish & chips. Told no fish as delivery late. Due to impending school run other food picked. I had soup & bread, mum had chicken salad. My food came out without hers, and without bread, after chasing it up a few times it turned up some 20 mins later! Apologies were made by staff blaming the hoo har of the fish not arriving etc I was offered another soup to eat when my mum's food came out but I didn't want another. Thought they might have waived our drinks I had a rum and mum a lime and soda but no! Lime and soda really dear mum said everywhere else £1 here £3. Have had a nice evening meal here before, not sure we'd go back for lunch though
We were a party of 6 ordering from the pensioner menu plus we bought extra desserts and drinks. The food was delicious and plenty of it and it was nice to see a local restaurant having a day like this. We would definitely go back for the same. Great atmosphere.
Amazing food the waiter was brilliant.
Excellent venue - we try to visit as a couple and with our visitors (we live in Falmouth) three or four times a year at least. That's as well as two or three visits to Padstow. A dinner at Sandbanks (one of the finest settings for a restaurant in the UK) in the summer also 'fitted' the bill. Standards/quality consistently HIGH.at all venues - fish&chip restaurant and take-away in Fal always a good standby in reserve. Chris & Jackie Snell
Delicious roast dinner, excellent service, and great value for money
We had a family meal to celebrate a 90th birthday. Staff were very accommodating and attentive, food was enjoyed by all 3 generations of family. A nice touch was "happy 90th Birthday" piped in chocolate on the dessert plates.
Really nice location and were lucky enough to have a window seat. Sensibly priced; good food and service.
We bought friends for lunch & they enjoyed it so much, they insisted we go again before they returned home, so had the luxury of lunch here twice in one week. The food & service was excellent & what really makes it for us is the 2 dog friendly tables. Thank you
Lovely setting and position, food was nice and not overpriced but better available in the village.
Great service, waiting staff were really friendly and welcoming, excellent food in a fab setting. We will definitely be back again!
Just a great place to come and have an excellent meal plus a good wine list. I lived in Bordeaux for a few years and it compares well with French cuisine Well done to the chefs.
One of our favourite restaurants. Food slightly disappointing - Fish & Chips Dry - possibly reheated?
The whole experience was so bad it was funny. The starter menu couldn’t fulfill the options. The main was over half an hours wait. The sweet order was never taken I had to find someone to take our order. Twice drinks were forgotten. It took one hour for the bill payment to be sorted. The whole thing was an amazing experience of cock ups. We are all local and dine out for business. You will certainly be a place to avoid. When I spoke to the manager about the the extreme experience we had I was offered no form of compensation. The waitress did her best to cope within the dreadful set up of your restaurant. Several of my party put it on fb. The response from a lot of people was that they agreed. We were at the restaurant for over 3 hours. That’s a course an hour. Ridiculous!! A friend was over at The Square restaurant. They had there 3 course meal and were back home in 2 hours and the restaurant was very busy. Yours was nowhere near full. Such a shame what a laugh at how bad it all was you couldn’t make it up. It was like the soup comedy sketch with Julie Walters extreme and so funny.
Sunday roast was lovely and 2 course lunch menu was good value for money. First visit to Porthleven restaurant. Didn’t realise there was an upstairs area which is light and airy. Attentive, friendly service from all staff.
Lovely waiting staff. The fish and chips were well cooked and the venue is very stylish with a prime location on the harbour. We will return!
