We had a lovely breakfast on Wednesday that we tried the next day for dinner on the off chance! From the start the greeting on Wednesday was so welcoming and fresh by Lara, made us feel like we were important/value, the cafe was busy and she made time to speak to everyone. On Thursday we knew she was working so we decided to come back, even better experience! Her recommendations were the highlight of our holiday chicken salad, laksa and cheesecake! The cafe is very small but cosy, what a little gem! You got the right balance, great food with superb flavours but your staff, it’s the best I came across! Thank you so much

Whilst the starters and main courses we ordered were nice and well cooked, it felt like no where near enough effort was put into dessert. Both of us were very disappointed with the taste of our desserts and the choices available were very basic and uninventive. Also, although one of our desserts was taken off the menu as a gesture of goodwill, which was appreciated, this actually made our meal more expensive as the food then fell outside of the three course set menu. We had higher expectations.

Lived up to the billing! Cosy atmosphere, sumptuous food, excellent service and at £26 for three courses, great value. A special way to end our few days in Cornwall and would visit again in a heartbeat, albeit living in Whitley Bay it would be more than an 800 hundred miles round trip! Will recommend to others and the whole Padstow experience...

A beautiful quaint cafe with friendly staff and beautiful food. Staff couldn’t help us any more than they did and made the visit for us.

I can not fault the food, drink or atmosphere we had a very pleasant evening. Perfect dining with a young child. However it was spoilt by a very flustered waitress chasing us out of the door to check we had paid the bill, absolutely not impressed - shame to end the evening in such a way.

The waitress was not particularly good with children and appeared frustrated that we asked for tap water. Later in the meal she was clearly angling for a undeserved tip. As soon as she realised that was not happening, her attitude changed in an instant, for the worse. Shame as the other staff seemed great. The food was lovely, though the choices were quite limited.

We really enjoyed our meal at the Café. Good food, prepared well. The Service was superb. I'd asked for a good table as it was our wedding anniversary. We got a really good one, plus a little extra anniversary surprise at the end of the meal, so this had clearly been noted. Special thanks should go to our waitress Lara who was very professional and friendly, as were all of the other staff there. Definitely one of the best meals we have ever had. Thank you.

The food was very good, could just do with changing the menu from time to time. Only one or two items get changed. Very good value for money.

We had a wonderful time at Rick Stein’s Cafe. We booked ahead to ensure we got a table and myself, my husband and our friends couldn’t speak highly enough of the food, service, ambience and general experience of our evening out. The food was exquisite and very good value for money. We will definitely be back! Thank you. Amy Kaye
