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.
The seafood platter was the most amazing and filling dish. Great wine selection🦐🦞🐙🦑🦀
The atmosphere was a relaxed one. We had a lovely evening. We liked the dress code, especially as we are travelling around England from Australia, and therefore we have a limited wardrobe at our disposal.
Friendly efficient staff, excellent food, great location.
We booked in on the celebration stay. The food was amazing, and decent sized portions. The staff were extremely attentive, even with such a full restaurant.
It’s quite difficult to fit everything on the table.
The food was excellent.Would definitely call again Great service by Lucy
Fabulous meal in a great atmosphere. Service was perfect.
Excellent food and service
Imaginative menu and outstanding food. The staff were attentive but not over bearing.
Absolutely wonderful evening all round
As regular diners whenever near any Rick stein restaurant ( 3 times previously to Padstow alone) my husband and I were visiting Padstow at Easter and bought our daughters aged 25&28 as a treat ! Unfortunately the service wasn’t to normal standard . One daughter ordered her starter asparagus with poached egg ( the egg was missing ) the other ordered smoked salmon at £17 ! which arrived being a 2inch square on a totally bare plate not even a sprig of green ,nothing to even make it appear more or appetising , so I had to give some of my garnish to her from my squid which was pleasant at best . My husband had hake and oyster which was lovely ! For mains we had two portions of lobster risotto and a sea bass in banana leaf and a steak bavette these were all lovely ! It was overall disappointing from the normal standard we have had in service and value . I would love to think the restaurant would take note of this review but I’m not sure they will !
lovely ambience thanks to the the friendly and attentive staff, Food was delicious, we all loved our fish, though not excited by the courgettes.
Relaxed, friendly lunch. We’ve been before and we’re not disappointed. Our guest loved it all. Great to have a venue that we can trust!
Loved everything about our visit. Food fantastic. Service excellent from all staff in particular Edyta. Ambience perfect. Can't wait to go back. The only thing missing was Mr Rick Stein who I would love to have met as his tv shows inspire me .Excellent value too
Thanks had an amazing meal. The lady who served us through the night was so lovely and very kind and friendly. My Dover Sole was the best I have ever had, My kids who are fussy eaters loved everything and ate all their food so win win situation. Thanks for making our visit memorable.
Great meal and experience at The Seafood Restaurant. Will definitely be recommending and returning on my next visit to Padstow.
Excellent food and service as always. And the diverse dinners make for an interesting evening
Incredible service. We felt at home here and would love to return next time we are in Padstow. The Sea food was amazing. Partner isn’t the biggest fish fan and felt relaxed but said her chips could have a big lighter and fluffier though! Overall would recommend.
It was so busy, not the number of customers; but the amount of staff rushing backwards & forwards, past the table. It was extremely hard to relax, with the hive of activity. I appreciate there are a lot of people to serve, but a more chilled atmosphere would be nice! Our main course took ages to come, to the point that those who arrived after us had already finished theirs; we were provided with complimentary drinks as an apology, which was a nice touch. The waiting staff were excellent.
Lovely meal we all had different dishes and all were fantastic, hope to visit again
We stay at the Seafood Restaurant every Easter and have done so for the last 20 years. Our meal in the restaurant is always the highlight of the whole holiday and once again did not disappoint. It was great, it is the best seafood restaurant in the country and ticks all boxes. See you all in 2020
Delicious food . Especially loved the oysters. Everything beautifully cooked although the serving of courgette with every fish dish is rather unimaginative especially at these premium prices. The dessert was very pleasant but not special. Would have loved to buy a bottle of the Steins gin but the price is well over the top We will be retturning. .
Food and atmosphere brilliant 😍😍👍
Excellent lunch with friendly staff and lovely venue.
Had a fabulous meal here at The seafood restaurant. Already looking forward to coming back again soon.
