Review: We have been visiting The Seafood Restaurant for the past twenty years. This is my favourite restaurant in Padstow (see my previous review in 2017). The food is very good, staff are knowledgeable and good fun, and there is a lot of energy in the restaurant. Its not Michelin star, and it doesn’t need to be.
We stayed for a long weekend break at the Seafood Restaurant, enjoyed dinner on Friday and Sunday lunch, as well as some fabulous breakfasts.
The bedrooms, designed by Jill Stein, are well appointed, clean and modern. There are some weekend deals, so the cost is less than you would expect.
The restaurant: Opened by Rick and Jill Stein in 1975, The Seafood Restaurant in Padstow is famous for the freshest of fish and shellfish.
The restaurant interior was designed by Jill Stein. It has a vibrant and relaxed atmosphere with its blonde wood, white walls, contemporary art and tables dressed in white linen.
There is 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.
