You will be hard pressed to find better quality food in Cornwall or anywhere else. The standards were high in every aspect of the evening with host Harry and Karen in the kitchen and their team working hard to bring excellence to the table. We were impressed enough to return within two days for more of the delicious food on... More

This tiny restaurant is a must for anyone staying in Polperro - it sets the standard for the rest of the village. From the moment of taking my booking and the welcome upon our arrival through to the care and attention that went in to every dish. The chef obviously understands her sensitively sourced food and the staff must love... More

This was our second visit to the Kitchen, as we enjoyed a super meal last Summer during our stay in Polperro. Again, my Husband and I were not disappointed. I booked the table a week or so before our stay, to ensure we secured a table. Harry seemed to remember us from last year and we were met with a... More

Polperro restaurants focus on typical pub fare, huge servings where volume wins out over quality, not so with Kitchen where the chef clearly understands and appreciates quality food. The result is great food cooked to perfection. Highlights for me include; home baked bread, flavoured with rosemary; duck breast cooked to perfection; a truly delicious flourless chocolate cake, all topped off... More

We went to the kitchen for my husband's birthday and had a lovely meal - lots of local Cornish ingredients including the duck and beef which were perfectly cooked and beautifully seasoned and presented, the absence of a peppercorn sauce was refreshing and the homemade gooseberry jam that accompanied the duck was a real treat. Puddings were delicious and came... More

Working for a well known Cornish restaurant myself, have to confess I am very choosy about where I eat... But I would wholeheartedly recommend The Kitchen! Truly scrumptious scallops with a beautiful apple and pistachio dressing, followed by one of the loveliest fillet steaks I've ever had, with mouth watering dauphinoise potatoes... Really do NOT understand the reviewer who was... More
