In Cornwall, we’re very proud of our abundance of seafood bar and restaurants. Fresh from the pages of our August/September issue (available now in shops and via subscription), we’re giving you a small selection of our top choices of where to eat and try this sunshine season.

1: Boscastle Fish Company – Boscastle.

With fresh fish being landed daily from their fishing boat, The Beeny, Boscastle Fish Company offers whole crab and lobsters live or cooked. Also, with sumptious freshly made lobster rolls, crab sandwiches and their new product, ‘a crab dog’ – a toasted brioche filled with crab mix, pancetta, red onion and lemon zest, this is such a fresh unique take on a seaside picnic.

2: Kota Kai Kitchen Bar – PorthlevenKota-31

With the name meaning ‘shellfish’ in Maori, this restaurant takes the best catch from local fishermen and creates exciting dishes using chef Jude Kereama’s Asian fused influences. With a menu that has been featured on the BBC Great Brish Menu, and a Michelin Bib Gormand under it’s belt, this restaurant is not one to miss.

3: Nathan Outlaw – Port Isaac

With a host of awards, Michelin Stars and AA Rosettes accredited to its name. Offering  a selection of tasty food and set menus which focus on the highest and finest sustainable seafood caught off the Cornish coast, chef Nathan’s unique approach provides a unforgettable dining experience.

4: Ostraca – Falmouth.

Set up at Carlyon Bay, Ostraca is the innovative pop-up seafood bar from Fal Oysters. Housed in a 20ft shipping container, it offers fresh seafood, local steaks and a full Cornish bar.

5: Prawn on the Lawn – Padstow

If it isn’t the catchy name that attracts you, then it will be the delicious seafood available from the kitchens of Prawn on the Lawn. From creative small places such as scallop ceviche, seared tuna and their signature Prawn on the Lawn dish, this restaurant also offers large platters of oysters, lobsters and Fruits de Mer. How delicious!
