“WOW!” “The new-look No. 6 is better than ever. What an achievement!” Paul Ainsworth’s tiny townhouse has “kept all the bits which were already fantastic” while undergoing an “urban-chic makeover” (and “adding a bar upstairs to make your pre-dinner drinks so much more comfortable”); and the “amazing” cooking, especially of fish, makes it “the very best choice for a foodie in Padstow” (despite all the local competition).
“Easily the best fine-dining restaurant in Padstow” – and some would say even better than Nathan Outlaw down the coast in Port Isaac – Paul Ainsworth’s tiny old townhouse “makes you feel special” and delivers “a short menu” of “absolutely superb” cuisine – “tried and tested dishes sit alongside new and interesting offerings and the attention to detail is phenomenal”. Top Menu Tip – “the bread ’n’ butter pudding has star quality”.
“A jewel in Padstow’s crown” – Paul Ainsworth’s “sparse”, café-style venture, in a “tiny” townhouse, out-guns its more famous neighbour with “top notch” cuisine, “whose freshness takes a lot of beating”, and “informal and friendly” service. It helps that the man himself is much in evidence and “totally unpretentious”. Top Menu Tip – “it’s easy to see why the Trip-To-The-Fairground pudding won on The Great British Menu!”
“Padstow’s best dining experience” is to be had at Paul Ainsworth’s backstreet operation, which is “amazing on all counts”; “there’s a real passion to ensure you enjoy your meal” and the “original and surprising” cuisine is “superb”.
Paul Ainsworth at No. 6 Restaurant Diner Reviews
"Top cooking but eye watering prices. £72 for one small fillet each from a single, humble sea bream with minimal accompaniments is pushing things a bit for a couple seeking a simple fish lunch! Set lunch better value but most uninspiring (no fresh fish) which is why we went la carte to the detriment of my wallet."
