Fodor's Expert Review Paul Ainsworth at no6

$$$$ Padstow Modern British Fodor's Choice

Paul Ainsworth is gradually expanding his culinary presence in Padstow to rival that of Rick Stein, and for many foodies, Ainsworth offers the better experience. His innovative creations can best be sampled at this intimate bistro that was his original foothold in the town, where diners seated in a series of small, stylish rooms feast on ingeniously concocted dishes that make the most of local and seasonal produce. The set-price menus might include cod with cured and steamed kelp for starters, and chicken "tournedos Rossini" or wild turbot with pearl barley persillade for the main course, as well as some astounding desserts. The set-price lunches are a particularly good value. The atmosphere is warm and lively, with swift, amiable service.
