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.
Fabulous and delicious food ♥️
We had another fab meal at the cafe, staff were amazing and the food spot on! Thank you
Lovely evening with friends. The cafe very generously reduced our bill as we had to wait a while for our table. Overall the food was very good apart from my cod fish cakes which were not nearly as good as the last time I had them, finding them rather dry. I request more salad which was offered free of charge. Very good service.
Popped in for breakfast during the Padstow Christmas Festival. Had a huge choice but fancied the huevos rancheros - was not disappointed. Delicious!!!
Excellent dinner as it always is, just love the Vietnamese chicken salad & cod curry although we prefer the fish to be in smaller pieces.
An excellent meal 10/10
Excellent and friendly service. Great hake dish.
Made to feel welcome straight away. Absolutely beautiful food. Even offered a lift home afterwards. Simply perfect all round.
As always super food and friendly staff Never fails to delight!
Excellent service and excellent food.
we had a lovely meal. Everything was excellent and my sea bass was the best I have had at any Stein establishment ever!! so there. We love the café , the atmosphere is great and the food, terrific. Thank you for a lovely evening
A really lovely evening with very special food. We were made to feel so very welcome. The atmosphere is friendly and relaxed, it encouraged a lovely sociable time.
Wonderful food, superb hospitality. We had a fabulous time.
Great service. Great food
We had a lovely lunch and the waiter and waitresses very very friendly and knowledgable.
Disappointing first visit to the cafe. On first appearance the food looked great however the Californian chicken sandwich was delivered to us on a charcoal-burnt slice of soda bread. The taste of the burnt bread overpowered everything else on the plate which completely spoiled it. The food was returned to the chef to rectify then brought back to us on a dirty plate - we didn't finish the meal. Aside from this the team were very attentive and keen to put things right however it was a bit tainted for us.
Welcoming staff and when they knew it was my partners birthday they made a special plate of fudge with happy birthday inscribed in chocolate. Fish curry was excellent
Lovely cod curry!
Delightful evening , lovely food and really attentive staff.
Excellent food and service Think prices quite high and would be nice to have more vegetables with main courses Perhaps a couple of healthier desserts
We wldnt go again. Been there 3 times now. The restaurant is soulless and impersonal. Just a machine. Food is excellent but we were completely put off by the environment. We couldnt wait to leave. We were in the area for a week and ate at the best places - nathan outlaw and paul ainsworth included.
Lovely fish cakes the best i have eaten service and staff with fab
We were disappointed with our night at the cafe. It was extremely noisy and impossible to hear each other talk. We were told we should order bread to have with the mussels-we ordered, it didn’t come but we were then charged for it. We had to alert the staff to the error. We thought it was expensive for what we got and not particularly innovative, in fact fairly ordinary.
Once again Matthew and his team exceeded all our expectations,we were welcomed as if we were arriving at friends house not a restaurant that we visit 4/5 times a year. Our usual table and gin lime sorbets arrived promptly .Patatas bravas to share were fab. The Vietnamese poached chicken was as always delicious, there were some new dishes on the menu the sea bass on a bed of pak choi was absolutely divine. The rice pudding was very Mexican and also very good. Matthew’s wine choice was spot on. The service and ambiance was wonderful. We have already booked for our next visit to Padstow in July and really can’t wait. Thanks again to Matthew and all of his wonderful team 😊
