Without doubt this is the best Restaurant in Padstow and a pretty good one generally.The level of service is of a high standard,, welcoming, professional and well trained. The Al a Carte menu was not long but very good indeed. The Set Lunch menu looked ok. too. We could not fault the lunch and have been on several previous occasions... More

This is the fourth time I've eaten at No6 and each time it has been excellent. Wonderful menu, beautifully cooked and delivered and in a professional yet friendly way. For me, this is by far the best restaurant in Padstow and probably Cornwall. Highly recommended.

Took my fiancé for a birthday meal and couldn't have wished for more. Fantastic service (they even gave my fiancé a personalized card) with staff who knew everything about every dish and provided great recommendations. The scallops ceviche was a definite highlight. Would 100% recommend.

Once again we were welcomed to no 6 for a 70th birthday celebration. Alex looked after us ,and arranged a welcoming glass of bubbly. Loved the new look bar , and the make over in the restaurant. The food was superb as always, service attentive, and the only hurt was in the wallet! However it was well worth it, and... More

Really enjoyed our second visit. Each dish was packed full of flavour from the aniseed stick in my G&T, Ruby Red ragu on Turnip 'pasta', intensely sauced pigeon with fois gras to a chocolate conconction with a sublime pistachio ice cream. Left feeling my taste buds had a good workout!

We booked this restaurant at the last minute based on a recommendation from a friendly shop owner, and it really is exactly what you would expect from a Michelin starred restaurant. Food is excellent, but we should have checked the menus out before arriving as there wasn't great choice for no meat eaters, I wrongly assumed that in Padstow it... More

Our third visit was not as enjoyable as we had anticipated. The food was very good though we thought our main course fish was expensive for a modest plateful. We felt chivvied by our principal waiter who was rather good at telling us all the details about everything but not good at letting us take our time to decide. If... More

Third visit and this delivered again. What an excellent restaurant. Sublime starters of raw scallops and ragu. Both perfect. Mains were a medley of pork and a pairing of lamb. And they were great. Wines were awesome too. Service was exquisite. Go - you won't regret it.

From start to finish the service was impeccable. Atmosphere was great, nice and calm, light and airy. And the food. Well we were blown away. The ragout was unbelievably delicious, as were the scallops. Out lamb mains were divine. The deserts a perfect end. A lovely lunch indeed. I can't wait to return and I highly recommend for food lovers.

What a lovely way to start an evening, a glass of champagne in the cosy upstairs bar while we made our selections. Each course turned out to be exceptional, the fish of the day and the duck were wow moments. Was good to meet Paul too! We'll certainly be returning.

Thank imm118
