SquareMeal Review of Kota Porthleven

In a lovely spot right on the harbour front, Jude & Jane Kereama’s converted mill offers plenty of rustic, nautical character & an Asian-inspired menu that makes good use of local fish & organic farm produce. Being part Maori, part Chinese & part Malaysian, Jude’s culinary roots influence his daily menus: battered cod is given an exotic twist with tempura batter & wasabi tatare, while rib-eye steak is served with dauphnois, caramelised shallots & chimmichurri sauce. Those with more conservative tastes can tuck into creamy truffled celeriac soup with herb gnocchi & Parmesan crisps, hearty fish stew or lamb rump with roast butternut squash, caponata & garlic aioli. Leave room for an impressive pudding, perhaps lemon creme brulee with plum & star anise sorbet. Don’t miss Jude’s ‘wine tasting’ dinners.

Reasonable food, terrible service
15 August 2020  

Food is nice albeit unspectacular for the money. Nice location.  Really let down by an inexperienced front of house. Food forgotten, drinks orders not taken, an hour to wait per course. Poor value for money. Better places to eat in Porthleven.
