Fifteen Cornwall Review
Last year when we went to Cornwall we was not able to go to Fifteen, although my brother in-law and his partner went for breakfast and said how great it was.
As a part of our trip to Cornwall this year we had planned to visit a number of restaurants and one that was on our list was Fifteen Restaurant. The restaurant was booked a few months before we went to ensure we got a table, which was a good idea as it was very busy!
As we had our niece with us we went for lunch, which was not a bad choice as the weather was perfect. Fifteen Cornwall is position right on the edge of Watergate Bay overlooking the sea, it was incredibly picturesque.
The decor of was excellent with white tear drop lights hanging down and bright colour pictures painted on the wall. The Fifteen Restaurant has wide windows going all around the room, allowing people enjoy the views of the sandy beach and the blue sea. If you can get a table by a window, I really would recommend trying to book one of these if possible.
I thought the lunch menu was quite extensive, there is a set menu allowing you to order 2 course (£26), 3 courses (£32), or 4 courses (£40).
I had the carnaroli risotto, this came with wild garlic and hazelnut pesto. It came nice and warm and was cooked perfectly, you could taste the garlic but it was not overpowering and the pesto gave it a nice additional flavour.
Rach had Linguine arrabbiata, this came with parmesan shavings on the top. Usually ill nick a mouthful but didn’t as I was enjoying my starter too much 🙂 She did however say that it tasted excellent with lots of flavour.
For main Rach and I both had the pork belly which came with polenta and kale. The pork belly was cooked perfectly with a nice crisp top, but not so crisp that you couldn’t bite into it. The polenta surprised me as usually I find it tasteless, however this had a good amount of seasoning and had a nice taste to it. The pork was finally topped with some salsa verde, I do like salsa verde and it really complimented the pork.
My Father in law had the salted hake which looked incredible and he did say it tasted very nice, the dish came with herby potatoes and aioli. If you are going to have fish then this is certainly the perfect place.
I had a semi freddo dessert which came with a nice crunchy biscuit, whereas Rach chose a panna cotta that came with roasted rhubarb. They were very well presented and they tasted incredible and was a great way to finish off what was an amazing lunch.
On The Beach
The next time we go to Cornwall (hopefully next year) I think i’ll try and get into Fifteen Cornwall in the evening to see what it’s like, i’m sure it will be incredible!
If you have been or plan to be, please do comment below i’d love to hear from you!
Its worth noting that Fifteen is not a Jamie Oliver restaurant, he doesn’t get profit from here. He was apart of the initial program that set it up to get people into a trained skill as a chef, all profits from the restaurant go back into training new recruits etc. I feel this is a very good cause and would love it to continue as think it is very worthwhile.
