Where Did I Go?
Name: Rojanos Restaurant
Address: 9 Mill Square, Padstow, Cornwall, PL28 8AE
Phone: 01841 532 796
Price Range: £££
I visited Rojanos earlier in the year with Rach, my brother in law and his partner. We wanted a nice meal for one of the evenings during our holiday. I am glad we booked Rojanos as the food and atmosphere were brilliant.
Owned by the great Paul Ainsworth and headed up by chef Paul Dodd, we were not disappointed. We spotted the restaurant when we visited Padstow and thought it looked great from the outside so booked it, it has a great outside seating area.
The menu is diverse and offers Italian influence cuisine, at responsible prices.
What’s The Location Like?
The location of Rojanos is great, its literally a minute or so walk from Padstow harbour. Padstow itself is a great town and would recommend it for a break away, if you do go make sure you check out Rojanos 🙂
What Did I have?
We needed to get back to our holiday home so didn’t have a dessert, however the starter and main that we had were excellent quality.
Starter – Cornish ‘Mackerel on toast’ – £8.50
When the dish arrived I really liked the fact that the Mackerel came in a decorative tin. The Mackerel tasted amazing, mixed with spring unpins, red onion, chilli, tomatoes, coriander, basil and lemon. It came with a chargrilled sourdough, which with the mackerel was very nice!
Main – ‘HOT SMOKED’ Loch Duart Salmon – £17.00
I don’t usually order Salmon so wanted to try something different and I am glad that I did. The Salmon had a great smoky tasted and came with Caesaw salad, quail eggs and a lemon on the side. The Salmon is served pink and had a great taste, the head chef and his team should be proud!
What Was The Service Like?
The service was great, we were welcomed with a smile and shown to our table quickly. Our drink order and food orders were taken quickly and the server came quickly when they noticed our glasses were empty.
Final Foodie Thought
Rejanos is a great restaurant and if you like Italian based food then I would recommend it. The price is reasonable, where as the quality of the food is high, As mentioned before the location is excellent, looking forward to visiting again!
