SquareMeal Review of Outlaw's Fish Kitchen

Silver Award

Superstar seafood chef Nathan Outlaw’s two-Michelin-starred flagship may garner most of the headlines in photogenic Port Isaac (familiar to fans of TV’s Doc Martin), but it would be a shame to ignore this cut-price, easy-going eatery just a stroll away that deals in full-on-flaavour.

Set in a 15th century fisherman’s cottage, you don’t get much more picturesque than this, with its harbour views of Port Isaac. Because of this prime spot the restaurant often gets booked up in the summer months, so it’s worth thinking ahead if you fancy dining here. They take reservations from three months ahead and have a strict table turnaround time. It’s also worth noting that because of the small size of the interiors, with just eight tables, the maximum party size they can accommodate is six.

‘The sea and fishermen dictate our daily menu’ says the slogan, and the kitchen obliges with a daily roster of Michelin-starred sharing plates based on the catch from the inshore boats. Come here for smoked haddock brandade with sourdough toast, crispy ling with chilli jam, baked hake with anchovy and tarragon butter or grilled mackerel with aubergine salad and basil dressing – plus blackboard specials such as rosemary- and cheese-crumbed plaice with pickled vegetables and jalapeño mayo. After that, some Cornish cheeses with beer and onion chutney or chocolate fudge brownie with clotted cream, caramel sauce and peanuts should suffice. Cornish beers, cider and around 20 fish-friendly wines offer thirst-quenching satisfaction.

Diners who appreciate the sustainability of their meal will be pleased to know that the team here work with the aforementioned local fishermen who are certified by the Responsible Fishing Scheme. Through this partnership they’re able to guarantee the seafood cooked for you has been caught through low impact fishing methods, which helps to protect the local marine environment for happy seas.
