I agree with a review with a similar title but would not say the food was great, our food was good. It is a relatively small restaurant, approx. 8 tables. We ate at The Kitchen in July 2015 & really enjoyed it. The food was really good & the atmosphere was great. Nice background music plus the owner did a... More

The food and service is excellent and every time we enjoy ourselves! We either come on our own or bring friends along and they have said how... More

Booked a table a couple days before as we usually find this restaurant is full. It only seats about 16 in total. There was only one other couple dining during the evening we were there. Lovely service from the young waitress and the food is fantastic. It just lacked a bit of atmosphere. No music playing, and as it wasn't... More

What a delight to find food of this quality - a welcome refuge from the customary holiday town offerings of pizza, fish and chips and burgers. Well presented, delicious food, good wines and excellent service - we wished we had found it earlier. It was the best meal we had in Cornwall.........by a distance. The restaurant is small so does...

The previous owners have just retired and had built up a terrific reputation over the years.The new owners have been there for six weeks only and to be honest we did not know what to expect as the...

Small but perfectly formed to produce great food in the heart of Polperro. Crab cakes, steak, lamb shank and desserts all very good. Highly recommended.

We found The Kitchen by chance after a day in Polperro and wanting something a bit different to enjoy the last evening of our holiday. We were not disappointed! The monkfish was incredible and we also had the fish pie which was perfect. The apple gallette and treacle pie were also delicious and we rounded off the meal with the... More
