When visiting a new place it is important you try out the best cuisine. We’re lucky in Cornwall to have a whole host of places for you to try. We have gone through our favourites and picked our best places to Eat in Cornwall. Check them out and book a place for when you visit Cornwall, you’d be silly not to!
Situated on the cliffs near Porscatho, this beautifully tucked away gem serves up fresh seasonal scran from an outdoor beach kitchen. By day, soups, chowders, salads and grilled seafood graces the menu, and by night, the hut chooses to open on specific summer evenings to hot open-air feast nights…doesn’t that just sound lovely.
We have also had the luxury of Simon Stallard, head of The Hidden Hut, come to Wild Cornwall to host a dinner party. Check out the photos!
Not far from The Hidden Hut, The Idle Rocks hotel, peacefully sits on the water’s edge overlooking the much-loved seaside village of St Mawes. This quaint village is made up of beautiful homes, boutique delis, hotels and restaurants to host the ones who know how to spend their money.
Chef Dorian Janmaat, who most definitely knows how to make your taste buds burst, cooks up delicious dishes with locally sourced ingredients with influences from the Far East, using classic French techniques.
We would recommend checking this beautiful place out!
Tucked away in small parish of Ladock, Kevin Viner, Cornwall’s first chef to earn a Michelin star, has returned to Cornwall to head up the kitchen at his restaurant, The Falmouth Arms. A very traditional Cornish inn, with a cosy fireplace and a cracking selection of wine and spirits, what more could you want.
Kevin has cooked for many celebrities, including royalty, however he now chooses to cook up his signature dishes in the heart of Cornwall, using only the best produce, ales and fine wines.
Located in the small fisherman’s village of Port Isaac, Outlaw’s Fish Kitchen serves up some of Cornwall’s best caught fish. With small and original seafood plates, you’re guaranteed to find something tasty here, and to make it even better, the restaurant is in a 15th century fisherman’s cottage overlooking the water.
Nathan Outlaw has another seafood restaurant that sits at the top of Port Isaac, Outlaw’s New Road.
Now, this is a must. Starting off in London, the Prawn on the Lawn team soon moved down to Cornwall. Having good quality fish on your doorstep is a perfectly good reason to move to Cornwall, right?! Opening the Padstow Town restaurant in 2015, the quality of food and amazing reviews drove locals and tourists to try their amazing plates out. Due to Covid, Prawn on the Lawn swiftly changed to Prawn on the Farm, allowing for more social distancing and room. From here their new location was born. It is really worth checking out!
If you can’t try all of the suggestions, we would definitely recommend trying at least one. You won’t regret it.
