Outlaw’s Fish Kitchen Review- fish restaurants in Cornwall
In the beautiful fishing village of Port Issac, over looking the harbour, is the wonderful Michelin starred Outlaw’s Fish Kitchen by Nathan Outlaw. For fish restaurants in Cornwall this is one not to miss.
We are given a short menu of small plates , all based around locally caught fish. These delicious, fresh dishes are individually priced and can be ordered whenever you wish through your dining experience. So if you spot something you like the look of coming out of the kitchen then just add it to your order!
The small plates:
We start ordering, first selecting one of the specials. A generous mound of white crab meat, served on sourdough toast, with a crisp apple and celeriac slaw. It is hard to describe just how fresh, cool, and luxurious this crab tasted- exquisite.
Marinated gurnard with mushrooms and hazelnut arrived next. Lip-smackingly moreish this one. That deep, mushroom puree- yum!
Ginger cured mackerel with beetroot and basil yoghurt offered a refreshing follow up.
Our final savoury dish was a generous portion of tandoori monkfish with a cauliflower pickle and coriander yogurt. Warming and flavoursome.
Just enough space for a dessert to share- a chocolate, peanut, espresso and lime baked Alaska.
Outlaw’s fish restaurants in Cornwall:
I think that the thing we loved most about The Fish Kitchen was the clever balance of flavours- the fish was always the star of the show. The dishes were all super tasty, fresh and satisfying, without being rich or heavy. Nathan Outlaw’s restaurants really do take fish dishes to another level. When in Cornwall visit.
We were lucky enough to also visit Restaurant Nathan Outlaw during our trip.
