“Deserving of the praise”
Reviewed 1 June 2014 via mobile

We chose here as our last night out before returning home after a week in Looe. We were not disappointed! The Crab Gratin and scallops were divine and the Cornish sole and lamb were both cooked to perfection; even the potatoes tasted wonderful! I am reliably informed by my companion that the bread and butter pudding was exceptional. The service was warm and friendly, the food arrived just when you wanted it and the wine was delicious. All in all - top class!

“Food Glorious Food”
Reviewed 29 May 2014 via mobile

Every course here was delicious. Scallops cooked perfectly, aged rib eye was very tasty with just the right amount of fat and served just how I asked for it. Friendly staff, good wine choice and lovely cheesecake. Not sure if I ate at the same place as the last reviewer, as I loved it all! Would come back in a heart beat! Well deserved trip advisor rating!Well done guys.

“Fantastic!”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

We were aware that The Kitchen had good reviews before we went there. What we found was that it deserved every bit of praise. The food and the service was simply excellent. They make a big thing of sourcing the ingredients locally. Not only is this ethically commendable, but the taste is just wonderful! Rack of lamb that melts in the mouth, scallops sweet and nutty and the best duck I've ever tasted! Can't think of a single negative comment!

“A worthy No 1”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Good well prepared food and friendly ambience. Visited all the top 3 and would agree the order they are placed in. Small restaurant probably a couple of dozen covers. Best to book as it is usually full over Friday and Saturday.
