Delightful seafood restaurant by Nathan Outlaw servig tapas style fish dishes with local ingredients
Having been to Port Isaac to try the 2 Michelin starred Restaurant Nathan Outlaw, it turns out there is an upper and a lower town as Outlaw’s Fish Kitchen is a 10 minute stroll from the car park at the top of the cliff / hill, along the coastal path and right down at the bottom part where the actual beach and port is. Almost igloo like in style, the rustic restaurant with tapas style fish dishes I would actually say is on eof the gems of the country and I’m afriad you simply have to pop by if you are close to see why. day or night.
This is charming and lovely little place to visit, in its chocolate box setting of narrow pathways and alleys in between buildings and is perhaps even more charming than Padstow in its unspoilt way. Outlaw’s Fish Kitchen is an absolutely lovely little 1 Michelin starred ‘glow’ in this port area serving tapas style fish dishes in its brightly lit cave interior. One chef in the kitchen with two people serving all the covers (roughly 8 tables only) which I thought added to the charm. The food itself was clearly skilfully done and balanced in flavour (delicate batter for the cuttlefish croquettes with an interesting squid ink mayonnaise and pickled pepper to bring all to order) and I especially enjoyed the mackerel dip with the toast. The bread is worthy of a mention as this was also done extremely well and probably the biggest indicator of the accolade that this restaurant deserves.
This was another lovely gem to come across and is also etched in the mind as a little pot of gold – you just have to simply go there to see why.
