Featured Penzance Restaurants
1. The Shore Fish & seafood restaurant in Penzance 13-14 Alverton Street - TR18
“Bruce Rennie is a wizard with local Cornish fish” and produces “the most amazing taster menus with fish and flavours that zing with freshness” at this cheerfully decorated, small modern bistro.
2. The Old Coastguard British, Modern restaurant in Mousehole The Parade - TR19
In a “simply perfect spot” gazing out to sea and St Michael’s Mount, this hotel dining room “has gone through many variations”, but has clearly settled into its stride under the Gurnard’s Head team. The “mainly locally sourced” (fish-slanted) food is “melt in the mouth”.
3. Victoria Inn British, Modern restaurant in Perranuthnoe
Just east of Marazion (home to St. Michael’s Mount), this ancient (12th century) inn has a “wonderful setting”, and receives nothing but praise for its “superior-end-of-pub-food” cuisine.
4. Tolcarne Inn Fish & seafood restaurant in Penzance Tolcarne Pl - TR18
Ben Tunnicliffe took over this 300-year-old harbourside inn in 2012, and its “fresh, innovative and fun” ethos continues to please; the food is “straightforward, carefully cooked” and fish-centric – no surprise given Newlyn Fish Market just round the corner.
5. The Cornish Hen Sandwiches, cakes, etc restaurant in Penzance 27 Market Place - TR18
“The sign says the best coffee in Penzance and the sign is not wrong”. “Generally described as a deli but it’s really a café selling food on the side. A pleasant place to eat, drink and watch the world passing by”.
