Don't waste your money! Looking for a intimate/romantic/ convivial dining experience? You won't get it at this restaurant. It is openplan, noisy, too bright, tables are squashed so closely together that it's Impossible to avoid overhearing the neighbouring tables' conversation. The Staff rush you to your table so quickly that you have to bring your pre-dinner drink with you to the table. An overpriced conveyor belt!
A seafood restaurant who overcooks mussels!!! My husband ordered a noodle dish for his starter, the tabasco bottle slipped out of his hand, dropped on the bowl and broke large pieces of the rim off the bowl. When we called the waiter over – thinking he would replace the food and bowl he laughed and said “we won't charge for the breakage” and walked off leaving the broken crockery on the table which was only removed when they cleared the table ready for the next course!. Goodness knows if shards of the crockery landed in the food – but there was no suggestion of replacing it.
Next time I go to Padstow I'll be avoiding Stein's Empire and try Paul Ainsworth's No.6 instead!
