The team at Restaurant Nathan Outlaw are celebrating after being placed No 1 in the Waitrose Good Food Guide 2018.
What Nathan had to say:
“Learning that we had scored 10/10 for cooking last year was amazing but this is just mind-blowing. The fantastic team behind me have all played their part in this success and I am grateful to them for their loyalty and hard work. I’ve never courted accolades; I just do what I do the way I like it but that seems to have paid off! My aim has always been to offer customers the very best fish and seafood available on the day, cooked simply but with subtle layers of flavour and to make a visit to Restaurant Nathan Outlaw an experience to remember for not only the food but also for the professional but friendly hospitality our Front of House team provide. I must also mention my suppliers, most of them local to the Port Isaac area. Without them and the strong relationships we have built, I wouldn’t have such wonderful ingredients at my disposal.”
What the guide had to say:
“It may seem a little odd that Britain’s best restaurant is the most modest. Nathan Outlaw shuns all pretension and his restaurant is decorated with restrained good taste, the kind that mixes wood, glass, tactile and visual, the kind that grows on you. An air of individuality and modesty extends to the first floor dining room with its bare wooden tables and stunning sea views, where Cornish seafood remains paramount, there is no choice and meals are treated as a totality rather than a succession of unrelated courses. This is because Mr Outlaw’s food is characterised by absolute freshness of ingredients and by a clear sense of purpose – he follows no fads, copies no recipes, joins no schools.”
