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.
Overall we all enjoyed our lunch but to be constructive my Cod was a little over cooked and the mushy peas were a solid block. We look forward to returning on the 27th October.
The highlight was the cod in a pea, lettuce and buttery sauce
This was my second visit which was just as enjoyable as the first visit. The staff are friendly and very helpful and the food is excellent and well presented. I am looking forward to returning again in the near future.
Excellent meal. Must say the service from the young waiter was second to none.
Second time here lovely food and excellent service.
Delightful staff in a delightful atmosphere. Really enjoyed it. Thank you
The setting and the building is lovely. Staff welcoming but the food was oh so disappointing. My husband’s tomato soup starter still had all of the tomato pips in it and was inedible. My sashimi had a light odor which was disconcerting. Fish and chip main course average and my hake was ok’ish. Sort of pub grub standard food which is not what we were expecting.
Wonderful meal, very nice evening!
Delicious lunch and excellent service. Highly recommend the Sunday lunch
Eaten many times at Padstow Seafood Restaurant, this is a brilliant alternative, albeit a more limited choice
Plates and food could have been hotter, other than that everything excellent
Very dissapointed with the food. My wife had plaice and it was grillled on the top only which left it soggy underneath. It had no flavour or seasoning. I had the Indonesian fish curry as they hsd run out of Hake. It was all right but again quite bland. Served with undercooked rice more filling breaking thsn al dente. Anyway Indonesian food must be served with sticky rice. Bill wss pricey but food quality did not match this.
Enjoyed every aspect of the experience, great views of the Harbour
Both dishes we ordered, the guacamole and the Indonesian fish stew, were way too salty. My husband and I are not into bland food and actually enjoy quite salty food, but this was uncomfortably salty. The waitress was very helpful and the kitchen staff made up a new batch of sauce to dilute the saltiness. This helped a bit although our food was cold by the time the second sauce was ready. Very disappointing for such a famous restaurant! I am unlikely to go back or recommend this place to friends.
Great food in a lovely location with friendly helpful staff. It’s fantastic that our little dog was allowed to come along with us for the evening too!
We stayed in Porthleven for a week and pre booked a table weeks in advance. The building is lovely and open - you don't feel crammed in. Menu is varied and not too expensive - starters are slightly over priced but we were happy to pay for good quality, fresh food. The food was delicious and enjoyed by all. Our only criticism (even as dog lovers) is that we had dinner at 8pm but other customers who came to eat, brought dogs with them. We don't have a problem with dogs but when you go for dinner at a restaurant (not a pub) you'd hope that people can leave their dogs at home; or that dogs wouldn't be allowed at this time. This was a surprise especially if people had allergy's. In all honesty we would think twice going back for dinner now because of this - trying to eat with a wet dog near you isn't very appetising.
Great time as always. Food was very very good (we had the vegetable linguine and the chicken dish) and excellent service as expected. Highly recommend.
Just all round fabulous... loved it .
We visited for dinner twice in three days! Excellent all round. Jack and Chloe very professional and attentive. We were celebrating my brother’s birthday on Monday 8th but he was ill so we changed the booking from 3 to 2. We weren’t going to miss coming! We’ll definitely be back. Barbara Gold (Mrs)
Lovely service, excellent food
Fantastic meal - fresh and delicious with great friendly service. We will be back!
Absolutely fantastic Sunday roast!
Always a pleasant dining out experience.Been here about five times over the last couple of years,and the restaurant has never lost it's appeal.Service is very good,atmosphere has a warming"hub bub"of chit chat and laughter.Prices are acceptable with quality of food unquestioned.A must visit.
I ordered whole plaice but the waiter did not ask if I wanted any side orders with it. So it arrived at my table with just 3 potatoes served with it. Nothing else !!! It was lovely fish but just the fish !!!!!! I was very disappointed.
Yes it's a fish resturant but I had the best steak! Plus the chef agreed to make me mash potatoe. So I couldn't fault it in anyway. Simply brilliant from start to finish. Thanks again. Hopefully see you all again soon. Henry
