I, like so many, made a pilgrimage to eat at the Seafood Restaurant in Padstow, and I left very disappointed. The restaurant itself is lovely, good ambiance and the staff were excellent, salvaging something of my evening, also the wine pairings were superb. But the food, well below average. I had the fish soup to start, it lacked flavour and body and was poorly seasoned, almost as if watered down?! This is supposed to be a rich velvety dish with real depth. I then followed with the lobster risotto, also tasteless and with a balsamic glaze drizzled over it that had no place on the dish. Is nobody tasting the food before the pass? I’d have been disappointed with this meal at an average restaurant, but at Rick’s flag ship restaurant? Come on, not good enough.

This was our second visit as we enjoyed the first so much and it did not disappoint. The red mullet stuffed with crab was excellent as were the mussels starter. We will be back.

An excellent experience. The menu was exciting and the wine list exhaustive (although you do need deep pockets as some of the prices per glass or bottle are eye watering). The coordination between bar and kitchen was not good, as our starters arrived about the same time as our cocktails and our coffee arrived before dessert. That said, the service was superb and we had a memorable meal.

Amazing food and service. Thoroughly enjoyed my lunch and would not hesitate to return. Some truly stunning flavours, great presentation and well informed, polite but fun servers. As an added bonus not as stuffy as some fine dining experiences. Yum yum!

Excellent food. We had the lunch set menu and it was lovely. We ve been before and it was as good as ever. The restaurant itself looks lovely and is a perfect position overlooking the harbour. Good choices on the set menu and the house wine is good. Staff attentive and friendly. See you again next year.....

We had a fantastic experience at The Seafood Restaurant. The service from our server Cameron was superb and a credit to the business. The food was top notch in particular the Scallops and Mackerel starters were outstanding as were the Lobster Risotto. We will be back.

As ever we had a fantastic meal, the staff are diligent but friendly at the same time. The atmosphere was great. We needed to change the booking to add two extra guests and the receptionist went out of her way to make this possible. A major feat as it was the Christmas Food Festival weekend.

Lovely restaurant, but lacked in any ambiance. Wine was superb and equally the food but we felt the food was very overpriced and the service was a little slow athligh the staff were very knowledgable and helpful

We visited your restaurant to celebrate my husbands 50th birthday (travelled down from Cheshire) with our 2 sons aged 15 & 12, what an amazing experience, the food wow! My youngest son said he felt like a king, referring to the way the staff treated him. Fabulous night, well worth the 5 hour drive, next time we are in the Padstow area will definitely be visiting again, thank you

A PERFECT birthday. Everyone from FOH to Head Chef Pete, are really on top of their fame. The food was divine, but not enough can be said about good service. Everyone we interacted with really knows their stuff. UK, Poland, Serbia, Padstow or Swanage, they set a high standard. My favourite.
