About Rick Stein's Café, Padstow
With fresh fish landed right here on our doorstep, our café creates simple seafood dishes with imaginative flavours. Drop in for breakfast or a cake with a mid-morning cappuccino, for lunch with many dishes designed to be light and healthy, or for dinner to enjoy our à la carte menu and a three-course set price one too.
We had the most lovely welcome back to the Cafe and it was great to be there again. However I am afraid that my husbands meal wasn't really of the standard we have come to expect. His Panzanella Salad and then the Sri Lankan Cashew Nut curry were both very disappointing. Quite basic dishes with rather gauche presentation and lacking flavour. I was very happy with my salt and Pepper prawns although I would have liked another couple of prawns! My mussels frites were delicious and top notch. Sorry to complain but you did ask!
Tasty pho starter!
Great breakfast choice and excellent coffee. Friendly welcome and good care of customers during these exceptional times
Lovely evening, relaxed, friendly and casual atmosphere, incredible food quality.
Truly enjoyable experience from start to finish with exceptional food. The prawns were delightfull. The waiter couldn’t go out of his way enough explaining everything in detail. Will always remember first meal out of lockdown thank you x
The Malbec was exceptional and the food was excellent. Selected dessert was not available but all other choices were available.
It was nice to enjoy great food after the period of lockdown. The service was superb. We look forward to the next time.
A fabulous welcome from the café staff, so good to get back to some kind of normality. Piotr and his team are taking real care of customers during these extraordinary times. The food and drink was excellent.
It’s obviously a bit strange having all the new Covid-related measures, but you are executing them with good humour and grace and we felt very safe dining at the Cafe. Food was just fabulous and that’s why we keep coming back!
Lovely relaxed meal in very pleasant cafe - actually much nicer with more space between the tables. A warm welcome and delicious food and wine. The service was great and great care was taken over social distancing and care for their customers. We will definitely be back.
My first dining out experience for 15 weeks and it was a great choice on my part. Every mouthful of the three courses was delicious, the recipes worked perfectly. And the presentation was lovely too. The restrictions on space and moving around the cafe were subtle and didn’t intrude at all , the staff were warm and put me totally at ease , they have clearly put in a lot of effort in the planning and new approach to service. Worth every penny and competitive with other venues in the same category I’m sure.
Lovely to see Piotr and the tram back. Another lovely evening. Faultless.
Amazing as always even with the current situation. See you all again in October.
An enjoyable dining experience and delighted to see an establishment taking such an organised approach to C19 distancing, without making its customers feel uncomfortable. Attentive service and well presented tasty food. Only minor criticism was that the set menu price, both quoted on the website and included with my booking confirmation, was less than charged on my bill. Although I received an apology when I pointed out this minor difference, it would have been courteous to have corrected the variance in line with the published cost. Otherwise 10/10
It was very pleasant evening in spite of covid restrictions. Our waitress was very good.
Great customer service. Incredible food. Clean and relevant safety measures in place in response to covid. Would 100% recommend and be back myself! Thank you again.
We’d been really looking forward to our visit and it didn’t disappoint! Lovely food, really friendly staff and a COVID safe experience. We will be back next time we’re in Cornwall to try the rest of the menu!
This was our first visit and wont be the last. We had booked a table online a week or so before as were in the area on holiday. The waiter was great and explained the systems they had in place following lockdown. Our food came out very quickly and tasted fantastic. Even my son who can be fussy finished his plate in no time. Overall, a very relaxed and enjoyable experience.
Covid-19 procedures in place and felt safe.
Lovely evening meal which was good value with the set meal. Salt and pepper prawns were very tasty but smaller than previously. Amazing cod curry and the steak was perfect. Staff cooed well with their new way of working but did forget our drinks initially .
Friendly staff lovely meal
We had such a lovely lunch and were made to feel so welcome, safe and at ease when we were a little nervous about eating out again. The food was delicious and Piotr and team were fantastic, with all measures in place to keep everyone safe, while not imposing on our enjoyment of the meal at all.
We were missing this lovely experience. Spot on as always.
I very rarely choose curried fish if its on the menu. On this occasion I did & it was excellent.
I think the friendliest of Rick's venues in Padstow. Has a lovely homely feel, although completely professional with excellent food and service
