About The Seafood Restaurant, Padstow
Opened by Rick Stein and Jill Stein in 1975, The Seafood Restaurant is famous for establishing an international reputation for the very freshest fish and shellfish, often landed on our doorstep. Head chef, Stephane Delourme and his team create simple seafood dishes with classic flavours using Rick’s recipes.
Had the best fish and chips ever. So pleased I booked as was soon very busy after I arrived. Great service and catered for me being gluten free. Wonderful experience and was a lovely end to an enjoyable day in Padstow.
We have been coming once a year for a few years now on our annual migration to Padstow. We have always had wonderful experiences. Unfortunately we found yesterday’s a little lacking in the usual enthusiasm and although both our starters were delicious neither of us was particularly enamoured with our mains. I could not eat mine as it was flavourless, under seasoned and rather than the nuttiness of of a beurre noisette it was just tasteless and too oily to eat. I think an off day is all...we also found our waits in between service just a little bit too long. Probably won’t stop us returning sometime in the future but will stick with evenings. Maybe time for a menu update too! Sorry for negative feedback never expected myself to be doing it but we felt a bit flat when we left which was a shame.
Excellent food and service. Seafood we had was just sublime, you could taste the sea, it was that fresh. Excellent value for money, would definitely recommend the restaurant to friends and family and will visit again for sure
We thoroughly enjoyed the experience - friendly, efficient staff, the food was delicious and the atmosphere was very welcoming and lively.
All wonderful, keep up the good work. We will be back,! Rex Swindlehurst
Great service and a lovely atmosphere. Party of 4 all enjoyed our meals . A birthday gift for my husband and we had a fab night
Excellent service and excellent food. Not cheap but nice for a special occasion.
Wonderful food, presented beautifully with a taste to match the appearance An unforgettable experience Thank you Jo and Peter Baker
Great service. Will definitely return if I'm back in Padstow, and highly recommend
We were a party of 4. Two of our party were left waiting for a side dish in their main meal and had to eventually send all the meal back as it had gone cold. The other 2 in party felt uncomfortable and meant we didn’t eat together. We had a very over friendly, talkative waiter who didn’t leave our table. We almost wanted to offer him a seat. We felt like there were 5 of us celebrating my husbands birthday. The food was superb but the evening could quite easily have been spoilt by these two incidents.
Never fails to please. What a lovely lunch we had. Many thanks
A wonderful place for that special evening meal if staying in this part of the world. Sea food excellent, service outstanding,atmosphere superb.Wife has a garlic intolerance, was completely looked after, dishes adapted where possible. Not at all stuffy, dress nicely but no jacket or tie etc needed. Wine as you would expect a massive choice and not as expensive as you may think.Not cheap dining but not silly expensive either, a truly wonderful experience. Please try you wont regret it.
So impressed by our first visit to Rick Steins; all 8 of us just loved the atmosphere, vast menu and impeccable service. It was the pinnacle ending to a great week in Cornwall - thanks so much for really making my dads birthday. We will make bookend reservations on our next trip down!!
Very nice dinner - staff were excellent.
We celebrated our wedding anniversary here whilst on holiday last week..... it was a wonderful evening with amazingly friendly service and super food! It was a lovely surprise to be given a little sample dessert with 'happy anniversary' piped around the edge... thank you so much!! We enjoyed that after our cheese platter and port!!
The visit was a present for my birthday. The experience was wonderful. The staff were friendly and very efficient, the food was amazing and I would certainly recommend the restaurant.
Excellent, a real eating experience
Service was excellent, even though when booking we were advised that the table would be required to be vacated by a certain time, we were not asked to leave at this time or rushed in any way. Food was sublime as always and a real treat for my Mother & Sister who had never visited before.
Food exemplary, Service a high standard. The only improving comments I would make is that the toilets need to be regularly checked.
We had a wonderful meal, the food, drink and service was impeccable as always made all the better with Jason suggesting wonderful wines to go with different courses and our lovely, bubbly, waitress Katie. Thank you all for making my husbands birthday so special.
Second visiting this fabulous restaurant & it didn’t Disappoint. From the moment we were shown into the restaurant the service was excellent by the friendly but not overbearing staff. Food was incredible. Our favourite place to treat ourselves in Padstow.
Lovely room, and excellent food. Great service too!
Food was very good, but we felt it was over priced, in regards to quantity received..
Fabulous evening, we will be back soon :)
My 4th visit to Rick steins ... my 60th celebration .. sadly it may well be my last .. the food was delicious as always but the service was a huge let down .. on the previous 3 visits the food and service have been awesome and made the whole dining experience second to none ... I was gutted that this experience was different ... service was just like any old restaurant ... my partner asked a question about the curry and the waiter had no idea on way of an answer .. I had a starter of mussels and three of them were closed ... I knew that unopened mussels were a no no and mentioned it to the waiter but the plate was removed and nothing more said..... it just seemed a let down on a special night to what, in my eyes has always been a special dining experience
