Outlaw’s Fish Kitchen, Port Isaac

Outlaw’s Fish Kitchen, Port Isaac

“The sea and fishermen dictate our menu and we never compromise on quality or sustainability” says Outlaw. The second of his two restaurants in Port Isaac, Outlaw’s Fish Kitchen sits within a Grade II listed 15th century fisherman’s cottage overlooking the harbour and the sea. Exuding rustic charm that’s undercut by serious professionalism, a meal here offers the familiar comfort of a Cornish home with the first-class cuisine and service of a London establishment.

Appearing on several television programs and earning his stripes under various celebrated chefs, including Gary Rhodes and Cornwall-ophile Rick Stein, Outlaw opened his Fish Kitchen in 2013. Since then, the restaurant has sought to expand culinary horizons and create a journey through taste and texture for its guests. Now led by Head Chef Tim Barnes, the kitchen provides a select menu of exclusive, flavourful dishes staying true to Outlaw’s unique approach to seafood.

Using, wherever possible, catch landed from local inshore day boats in and around Port Isaac, Outlaw encourages sustainability using fishermen certified by the Responsible Fishing Scheme. Proud of both local traditions and the beauty of the Cornish coast, the team promote low-impact fishing methods to preserve the fragile marine environment and ensure a sustainable future for fishermen and foodies alike.

If you would like to visit and sample some of the exquisite food on offer, prepare to be amazed by dishes both bold in composition and delicate in flavour. With regularly updated options, look out for the popular mackerel in oyster sauce and the breaded squid with smoked paprika mayonnaise. Each dish can be washed down with one of a selection of drinks, including a wine list of cold whites and smooth reds. Of course, there is also an irresistible dessert menu so you can polish off your meal with sweet treats or savoury tones.

To make sure you secure a reservation in this small, eight-table restaurant, booking ahead is highly recommended. Parties of up to 6 people can be catered for and opening times do vary.
