Featured Porthleven Restaurants
1. The Square at Porthleven Mediterranean restaurant in Porthleven 7 Fore Street - TR13
Attractively situated modern brasserie with outside tables near the harbour, which “uses lots of local produce and produces its own ice cream”. “Book if you want to guarantee a table”.
2. Kota British, Modern restaurant in Porthleven Harbour Head - TR13
“Accomplished and memorably inventive”, Kiwi chef Jude Kereama wins high praise for the cooking at the harbourside restaurant he runs with his wife Jane, which “uses fresh local seafood and adds a twist of Japan and Asia”. “The wine list is advanced for the area, with very well chosen bottles, particularly from New Zealand”.
3. Kota Kai British, Modern restaurant in Porthleven Celtic House, Harbour Head - TR13
An “idyllic setting” with “fab views over Porthleven harbour” elevates a visit to Kota’s “very child-friendly” and “relaxed” sibling (both run by Great British Menu chef Jude Kereama); particular shout-outs for the “tasty burgers and steak with an Asian twist”.
4. Rick Steins Seafood Restaurant restaurant in Porthleven Mount Pleasant - TR13
“With its lovely location, overlooking the harbour in a nicely refurbished old warehouse, the Porthleven Stein has more charm and character than the nearby Falmouth branch” and there’s “a great buzz about the place”. When it comes to the range of fish and seafood, reports are generally upbeat (with some “exceptionally good” meals noted), but overall food scores are middling with gripes about high prices in particular. Service likewise seemed more “hit ’n’ miss” this year (“either efficient and friendly or forgetful and impersonal”).
