What a wonderful ‘Covid safe’ experience we had at the Seafood Restaurant and hotel. My husband, my daughter our pup and I stayed for 2 nights. The service and food was exceptional throughout. Thank you - kate

It is very unfortunate in giving a low score for atmosphere which was certainly not due to anything that Steins could do as we are all in very uncertain times due to the pandemic. The atmosphere was changed due to social distancing and the wearing of masks which all of the staff were doing. Also we were seated in a busy area close to the corridor of what has become a one way system and requested an alternative table, this was done and we were then seated in the conservatory which I didn't find as being ideal. This said the service was excellent as was the meal.

Our seat wasn’t the best near the kitchen door that kept swinging open and just felt the price of the food vs the portion was not commensurate (had the Dover sole) however my wife had the fish curry which was a far better portion / value. We also witnessed a junior staff member being told off for not explaining the petit fours to the customer - This should really have been done more privately

Service was okay but not up to the standard we expected. Food was nice but nothing to rave about. Enjoyed but a little disappointed compared to our expectations.

As always our annual restaurant visit whilst holidaying in Padstow didn’t fail to disappoint, great lengths had been made to protect us from COVID-19 but as a result the usual care of service had understandably been compromised the most frustrating aspect of this was the introduction of a 12.5% discretational charge which we felt guilt tripped into accepting when actually we would have preferred to tip our individual server , a small damper on our orherwise excellent experience .

Our first visit to one of your restaurants, we thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience. I was a bit dubious about coming in so late in the day when we booked, only time available was 9:45pm but was pleasantly surprised about how relaxed and unhurried we were made to feel, nothing was too much trouble for the staff. An amazing experience we will certainly do it again.

We absolutely loved the food. We came from Norwich and ate both at the seafood restaurant and the cafe. We were not disappointed. My mother had the turbot ( for the first time). What a fish! The curries were amazing.

We visited on my husband's Birthday with our 2 girls aged 13 and 10 and we all absolutely loved it. The food was fantastic (as we had expected it would be), the service was excellent and very friendly from the moment we arrived. I think you have done an amazing job of social distancing in the restaurant but maintaining a healthy atmosphere throughout. Thank you very much for organising a signed menu for my husband he was delighted. We would love to come back again next time we visit Cornwall. I'm still dreaming of my prawn cocktail starter and Pondicherry fish curry. Very glad to have found the recipe in my copy of Rick Stein's India!!!
