Review on Outlaw's Fish Kitchen
Two Michelin-starred Nathan Outlaw has opened his fourth venture called Outlaw's Fish Kitchen in the premises formerly occupied by the Harbour Restaurant. The white-washed building is set on the quay at the end of the market, with idyllic views overlooking the harbour in the picturesque fishing village of Port Isaac, on the Atlantic Coast of north Cornwall.
Long time associate Paul Ripley oversees the kitchen together with Head Chef James Lean, who worked as Sous Chef in Outlaw's at the Capital Hotel in London. Given the setting its no surprise that seafood is the order of the day, supplied wherever possible from the local day boats a few steps from the restaurant. The menu showcases delicious seafood plates designed for sharing with dishes like half shell scallops roasted with seaweed butter, Port Isaac crab on toast and Outlaw's Fish Burger with herb mayonnaise. Vegetarians are catered for as well with marinated tomatoes, whipped goats cheese or crispy courgettes with tomato chutney. When it comes to something sweet or cheesy look for dark chocolate mousse, honeycomb and blueberries or White Nancy and beetroot served with walnut bread.
There's a concise wine list with most available by the glass, together with local cider and beer. Outlaw's Fish Kitchen was awarded a prestigious Michelin star in the 2015 edition of the Guide.
