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.
Great Birthday treat for me..Really lovely meal,not cheap but the best never is..Love the painting of the nude girl surfer...Will be back thats for sure. Thanks to all staff friendly and chefs the best...Geoff Cottam.
I started vomiting at midnight after my food with you. I had prawns to start and felt quite ill. For the same price I’ve had far superior food at the Grove at Sithney. No, we won’t be coming back. Very poor.
An excellent meal, reasonably priced The service was excellent, our waiter was friendly attentive and professional An all round excellent experience in the beautiful setting of Porthleven harbour
Great to find they are dog friendly. Always been a favourite and look forward to our next visit.
Absolutely delicious meal. Every course was perfect and the braised cod was a real winner. The three course lunch time and early evening menu is real value for money.
Staff very friendly but not attentive enough. We had to ask to order food then again to order dessert. Felt we were forgotten about. Had hoped to try the lobster however on arriving we were told they had run out at lunch! Food was undoubtedly delicious but mains were overpriced. Kids menus were very impressive and reasonable. Having deliberately avoided this restaurant due to poor peer reviews we were recommended the Porthleven one by fellow holiday makers. We will however not be visiting again soon.
Excellent service, wonderful food. Very well catered for children. Will definitely be back.
Lovely lunch, super food and service and a lovely setting. What more can you ask for.
Great food, great atmosphere, great service. Child friendly Highly recommended Thankyou
Very nice meal on our first day in Porthleven. Sweet of our waitress to bring a bowl of water for our dog. He appreciated it!
The lobster is to die for we will miss it. Service was excellent.
Our second visit here and it didn’t disappoint. Lovely food in contemporary surroundings. Staff seemed to genuinely want us to have a great evening. I was surprised and impressed by the number of quality wines available by 0.5l carafe.
Lady who met us at the door when we arrived was just lovely, great service, clean and organised, food was best fish I’ve ever tasted compliments to the chef will be calling again when back in Cornwall
This was our most expensive meal of the 2 week holiday and probably our poorest meal. The portions were small, we had to repeatedly ask for things. Our son is dairy free, they were in flexible in substituting items for him. The food was good, but we expected to be wowed and we definitely were not. We had a better meal and experience in the Seadrift Cafe a night earlier.
It was wonderful, fabulous setting, excellent service and fantastic food. Incredibly special evening.
Excellent food and great service. A lovely evening.
Lovely restaurant and setting. My family and I really enjoyed the food and the table service. We will definitely return!
The Sumac chicken was the best chicken I’ve had in my life (and I’m nearly 40!!!) The staff who served us were lovely, they already knew about my sons nut allergy and advised us around this. The setting was gorgeous and made our family meal feel special. There wasn’t any brownies for the children’s pudding, but they sold the sticky toffee pudding well enough - the children felt like they had an upgrade. Continue with what you do, it was amazing. Many thanks, The Kingham Family
The Food and service was very good. The menu was not very logical , so we didn‘t know which of the specials was a starter and which a main. In the Restaurant it was very loud, but the atmosphere was still nice. Maybe the waiters should wait to put the cuttlary back, because it made noise. The toilet‘s flush was not very good.
A fantastic meal, great service and a lovely atmosphere. What more could we ask for?!
Great staff, but lack of planning with respect to customers means the kitchen often struggles to cope, so wait times can be high. Overall an enjoyable experience but rather expensive when compared to the talents of the other restaurants in Porthleven. It has stiff competition and I'm afraid The Square and Seadrift serve more impressive plates of food.
Staff were friendly and helpful , food was excellent,served in a very nice location
The 'sides' continue to be truly disappointing in content, presentation, and size they are not value for money! it really puts me off your establishment..it is only the other aspects that keep me a local returning
Very friendly and attentive staff. Excellent food Great ambience - relaxed atmosphere. Overall great value for money and experience
We had a table for dinner. I ordered the mussels as my main course but, when the portion arrived, it seemed very small. I queried this with the waitress who said that it was the only size they did, even if you ordered it as a main course. A few minutes later, her supervisor came over to say that this was incorrect and the waitress should have ordered a double portion size. He offered me a free dessert as compensation and he handled the situation well. However, in general, the food is disappointing. We expect more from Rick Stein because of his high profile but this is the second time he has not lived up to our expectations. We have eaten much better fish dishes in restaurants without a celebrity chef, even on a boat floating down the river in Bordeaux.
