I have to say that the Rick Stein restaurant was not our first choice for dining in Porthleven, but wanting seafood and unable to get a table in our preferred location we gave it a try. We were pleasantly surprised. We were made to feel welcome and the service was very good and attentive.
The meal was delicious, I had spicy Singapore crab and the wife had Goan cod. The servings were generous well presented. The crab was a messy but delightful experience, thankfully extra towels were provided. It was not to expensive either. I would go again when in the area for

We arrived as 4 adults, a toddler and a baby. The staff were very friendly and helpful throughout.

The food was excellent - my sea bass was melt in the mouth stuff, and my husband’s crab was divine (and huge!).

The children’s menu was a step beyond the usual pizza/pasta/chicken nugget affair - slow cooked pork belly and rice, which was delicious.

A very enjoyable lunch for all.

I would have done an excellent rating but the price of the drinks let them down they are far too expensive. The food was excellent and the staff very welcoming we would have stayed longer if drinks had been more reasonably priced.

We had a good meal here. Starters were particularly good. Service was initially slow but did improve. There wasn't a huge amount of atmosphere which was maybe due to the size of the restaurant. The building is lovely and the decor really tasteful.

Having eaten at a number of Rick Stein's restaurants, we are rarely disappointed. This restaurant is a great cross between the Seafood Restaurant in Padstow and Rick Stein's at Fistral in Newquay. Casual dining, plenty of menu choices, some old favourites and great friendly service. Food was excellent. Great harbour views. We dined early and booked several weeks ahead.
