As the name suggests, Fresh from the Sea is all about serving the freshest Cornish seafood around. This small Port Isaac shop and eatery is run by Calum and Tracey Greenhalgh, whose aim is to share their passion for fish with everyone who visits. Every day Calum takes his own boat out to catch fresh crabs and lobsters, which are then sold in various forms up at the shop or restaurant. Whether you're looking for whole lobster, prepared or still alive to cook at home, or simply want to pop-in for a seafood sandwich or salad, Fresh from the Sea has got you covered.
Situated right up at the top of the village, the tiny local eatery has a few tables out front where you can enjoy your food al fresco with gorgeous coastal views to boot, while there's space for only a couple more tables inside. A fish counter sits at the front of the space allowing you to see what's on offer any given day and pick what you want to eat, and specials are scribbled up on blackboards behind the counter. Decor is very simple and gives the space a relaxed ambience which is similar to that of a café.
All the seafood and fish offered by Fresh from the Sea have either been sustainably caught by Calum or provided by local sustainable suppliers. There's something for all appetites on the short menu; sandwiches available range from a smoked salmon sandwich to a lobster and crab open sandwich on toasted bread with avacado and mayo. Other options include homemade smoked mackerel pate, Porthilly oysters with shallot vinegar, and if you're wanting to go all out, a whole lobster served with bread and butter.
Wash your food down with a glass of wine, a bottle of beer from Padstow brewery or one of the soft drinks on offer.
