“A cut above the rest”
Reviewed June 29, 2013

We visited Kitchen last week while on holiday in Polperro.
We had read the reviews on Tripadvisor and they were all good, the reviews we read were spot on, the food was excellent, the service was second to none and the banter with the staff made for a perfect evening.
When in Polperro a visit to Kitchen is a must.

“Feshest crab and dover sole to die for”
Reviewed June 18, 2013

Chose the restaurant for our Ruby anniversary dinner and what a choice it was. The atmosphere is welcoming and cute, the service impeccable and the food, specially the baked crab and Dover sole -best I have ever tasted. My husband loves his grappa and that being available completed his evening. When in Polperro The Kitchen is a Must. What a perfect evening to round up 40years of marriage.

“All food should taste like this.”
Reviewed June 17, 2013

Having just returned from a weekend away in Polperro with friends, I thought I should let people know just how good The Kitchen is. Having booked (strongly advised, there were no vacant bookings on the Saturday we visited), and told the owner it was our twentieth wedding anniversary, we were greeted at the door as welcome friends.
The restaurant is very small, but in a good, 'cozy' way. You can see into the spotless kitchen and watch the Chef at work. The food, all locally sourced, was a masterclass in taste, absolutely breathtaking. If you visit, you have to try the clotted cream cheesecake, awesome.
The owner gave excellent service the whole night, getting the perfect balance between friendliness and over familiarity.
We will definitely be returning.

“Outstanding and very highly recommended”
Reviewed June 11, 2013

Booked in at the kitchen on the strength of the reviews here on Trip advisor and we were not disappointed.

The food was absolutely first class, strong flavours, just the right amount and superbly delicious.

The hosts (Harry & Karen) were fantastic and you can see how much care, effort and love they put into their restaurant, food and presentation.

If you are in Polperro, it's simple, book to have a meal here, you will be glad you did.
