When we arrived we put our wellies on and went for a walk along the beach and headland.
We then made a reservation at Rick Stein's seafood restaurant, I am so glad we did it was fabulous from start to finish.
We started with some bread, sesame seed and walnut and a sourdough, both lovely. They also gave us an appetiser of a mini fish cake.
We then shared a starter portion of fruit de mer. This included mussels, brown crab, clams, langoustines, oysters, scallops, winkles, whelks, razor clams and velvet crab. I had not had some of these items before after trying them all I can say I don't like whelks and winkles but both are bearable compared to that of an oyster. It was awful! Like swallowing sea water through your nose! It was a great thing to try especially for a starter as fruit de mer is often very expensive. I would defiantly recommend trying it if you get the chance.
On our way home we stopped back in Padstow to pick up some fish for dinner from Rick Stein's fishery. I was surprised how cheap the fish was here. I thought we would pay more as it was from Rick's but it was actually cheaper than the supermarket, so defiantly go here if you are doing as self catering holiday in Cornwall. We then got ice cream, I had Cornish cream tea, honeycomb and mocha. All three were delicious.
For pudding I had the chocolate and marmalade tart with raspberry sorbet and lulu had sticky toffee pudding with ice cream.
