Outstanding meal, but service is less than expectations. Mr Stein is a 'celebrity chef' and as such our expectations were high. Food amazing, restaurant ambience 9/10 but let down by staff who are not well trained. Appreciate staff are hard to find in the West...More

Opened by Rick Stein and Jill Stein in 1975, The Seafood Restaurant in Padstow 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. We have a seafood bar right in the middle of the restaurant where you can watch chefs assembling platters of oysters, langoustines and sashimi. No reservations are required for the bar and you can order anything from the a la carte menu.
