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 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 😊
Salt & Pepper Prawns, Cod Curry and Sticky Toffee Pudding and Clotted Cream to follow - absolutely wonderful meal.
What a amazing evening! Everything about our meal was perfect. I could not find fault with anything. The staff were helpful, friendly and knowledgeable about the dishes on the menu. The food was perfect and the atmosphere was wonderful.
Excellent food and service as always. Looking forward to returning.
The staff wer amazing, friendly, really knew the menu. The decor was elegant. The food was lovely. Perhaps ruce pudding would be nicer warm. The only negative thing I would say is the walk to the toilets in FREEZING. But we would definitely return :)
The steak was cooked to perfection and the sticky toffee pudding was to die for.
The dinner was delicious, Service excellent and the atmosphere was warm and cosy on a cold February evening
It was lovely. Food excellent. Ask the chef to go down to the fish restaurant and teach them to make the Mexican rice pudding his was lovely the one at the Fish restaurant was terrible.
Our waitress was absolutely lovely and the food was great.
Great atmosphere, really fine innovative food served in a true cafe setting, terrific dinner
Another amazing meal. The sea bass dish is wonderful. Service is so professional and welcoming. Already booked in again.
Hi, we visited on 22/2 whilst we were in Padstow. We’ve been to the Seafood restaurant before so thought we would try this out as we with our children. Really relaxed and friendly welcome by the man and lady who were front of house, lovely table and we were well looked after. Drinks orders taken swiftly as was the food order which followed shortly after. I was helped out with the questions I had about the wine and our starters arrived, which were fabulous! Mains then turned up which again were brilliant. My daughters even commented on their meals, which never happens. I have two small points if I had to be “very picky” and they were - I ordered my son another drink and it didn’t arrive, then when my dessert arrived I had to ask for some more toffee, my wife fe and I both had sticky toffee pudding and when they arrived hers was swimming in the gorgeous toffee and mine had hardly any. Like I said I’m being very picky! Overall a lovely place and will definitely return.
Simply outstanding as always! Food and staff absolutely perfect. Thank you.
A super meal. Delightful & perfectly pitched service by lovely staff with a 'buzzy' atmosphere that added to the dining experience (and this was Sunday evening) The Cafe maintains it's excellent standard and I'd highly recommend it. Thanks☺
We had such a lovely meal, thank you. My sea bass dish was one of the nicest meals I have ever had. Service was friendly and efficient as always.
Service was slow but friendly and the food was superb as always.
The atmosphere was inviting and cosy and the staff were extremely attentive and friendly throughout the evening. The food was amazing and the three course deal was superb value for the quality of food. The spiced apple martinis were also to die for! We will definitely make another visit next time we are in the area. The only very slight negative for us was the service was almost too quick! A little longer between courses to prepare our stomachs would have been a bonus!
Fabulous don't change anything!
Fantastic yet again. Just wish I there were more prawns like in previous years
Actually preferred the Cafe to Stein's restaurant.
Wonderful for families. My three very young children were made to feel very welcome. My husband and I were very lucky to be able to finally enjoy a lovely, relaxed meal out together. The children loved the food as much as we did!
