Great food in unpretentious and friendly wee restaurant

I counted around 20 seats on around 7 tables. Being this small, and keeping menu to a sensible size allows owners to run it... read more

The food is outstanding, so tasty that tonight I actually did not want my duck to end.... The Scallops are to die for..... You will be... More

A hidden treasure of a restaurant tucked away in the little town of Polperro. The food is incredible and the friendly and intimate atmosphere is one you will not find at any other restaurant. A must visit!!

We spent a week in Polperro and went here twice. The restaurant is small - only 8 tables - and easily missable when passing (it is a short walk up the road from the village centre towards the main car park), but, oh so worth the visit. Food is excellent - so well cooked! The service deserves a special mention...we... More

Had a lovely birthday meal here back in November. It is a small restaurant so make sure you book in advance to avoid disappointment. A friendly welcome and didn't feel rushed when eating. Could see the food being cooked where we sat. The food was cooked really well and presented lovely. A nice personal touch with the happy birthday written... More

If you are visiting Polperro then make sure you book a table at the Kitchen. We have visited a number of times, most recently between Christmas and New Year, and the meal was as superb as ever. Harry (despite being a Spurs fan!) is a great host, nothing is too much trouble and Karen produces the most fantastic menu from... More

My partner and I had dinner at the Kitchen with 2 friends on New Years Eve. This has to be the best evening I have enjoyed for a very long time. The food was absolutely fantastic, the host Harry (front of house) and wife Karen (chef) were perfect and it gets even better as the bill at the end of... More

Really good food, a good balance between original, traditional and hearty. We were very impressed by the care put in the menu and the presentation of the food. The service is also very attentive and very personal, the hosts really go out of their way to make you feel at home and make a bit of conversation, which is a... More

When we arrived we wondered if we had made a mistake. It doesn't look much from the outside. But as soon as we walked in we were made to feel so welcome. The food was absolutely delicious and made even more special by the lovely warm, friendly, nothing is too much trouble service.
