Because of Cornwall's seaside location, it is unsurprising that restaurants here benefit from being able to catch and prepare some delicious fresh seafood. If you’d prefer options other than the traditional Stargazy pie (perhaps the fish heads sticking out of the crust, as if star-gazing, is not up your alley), many restaurants offer a wide variety of fish-dishes supplemented with seasonal produce. Check out the traditional menus coming from seafaring local chefs, or the work of some famous TV restauranteurs like Rick Stein, whose seafood restaurant is so popular that its location in Padstow is sometimes playfully dubbed as ‘Padstein.’
Besides seafood, Cornwall offers a wide variety of casual eateries, fine dining experiences, pubs and bars serving locally-brewed beers, and everything in between. Whether you’re looking for a restaurant offering a new take on your favourite Cornish delicacy, or a quiet coastal chippy to visit on a day trip, we have curated a selection of Cornwall restaurants for all budgets and taste buds.
