Review on Bakehouse Restaurant

True to its name, this bright modern restaurant was once Penzance's old bakery, and the original bread oven is still in place. The venue is spread over two floors, with original exhibitions by famous local artists filling the wall space and a semi-tropical, palm-filled courtyard for al fresco meals.

The kitchen keeps faith with local produce: seafood comes from Newlyn and the owners even 'catch their own' on nearby beaches; other supplies are procured from neighbouring farms where possible. Dishes have a bold, eclectic slant, witness seared peppered fillet steak on mizuna and rocket with salsa verde, pan-fried scallops on spiced couscous and black-eyed beans with Bajan mango sauce, and iced passion passion fruit soufflι. At lunchtime, it's a world tour, from deep-fried Cornish goats' cheese with bramble sauce to Japanese yakitori chicken with crispy noodle salad.

According to one enthusiastic Mobile Food Guide user, this is ' a real gem, the sort of place the locals keep to themselves!'
