1 Middle Street, Port Isaac, Cornwall, PL29 3RH
Seafood, Fantastic Location, Small Plates
Fish and shellfish from the surrounding waters dictate the menu at this intimate, eight table restaurant by renowned chef Nathan Outlaw. As you'd expect from this culinary great, Outlaw Fish Kitchen puts fresh, locally landed seafood at the heart of the menu.
Housed in a quirky 15th century fisherman's cottage; Fish Kitchen is an informal alternative to Outlaw's two Michelin Starred 'Restaurant Nathan Outlaw' just a mile up the road. Step inside and you're met with wonky walls, low ceilings, and warm service. But don't let the laidback atmosphere fool you - Head Chef Tim Barnes produces simple but refined dishes that have scooped them a plethora of awards and accolades.
At Outlaw's Fish Kitchen, offerings come in the form of small plates designed for sharing. 4 or 5 plates between two is generally the right amount (but you can order more as you go) and the dishes are kept simple but striking - with bold flavour combinations that bring them alive.
It's worth noting that Port Isaac is home to some particularly windy and narrow roads. Larger cars will find it tricky to make it to the front of the restaurant for drop-offs, but there's plenty of parking at the top of the town and the walk is a great way to take in some of the views.
