Imagine a small fishing cottage by the dock with the ground floor converted to ake about 20 diners and a kitchen no bigger that a Bentley.
Now imagine no main courses but a long list of starters ( rather in the style of the old Menage a Trois restaurant in London 20 years ago). Just order...and keep ordering until you feel full and fat. Be ready for surprises, exquisite freshness of wish, wonderful artisan beer, smart staff who could work at Goldmans in their day job, and a kitchen that doesnt fluster or fail. Thats why its worth going to Port Isaac.
The test of exquisite freshness in fish is, for me, a mackarel. These were on toast and caught that day. The crab cakes delight, the white fish is touched with Asian i think, and you might aswell just keep going down the blackboard because there is nothing you wont like. Desserts are equally delicate, fresh and imaginative.
Alot of restaurants say they differentiate on freshness and seasonality but i have rarely found a restaurant which leaves you with a deep understanding of just how good food can be when its meets these criteria. Outlaws does and its a triumph.
Go casual, be prepred to roll with the experience and just let them bring it on. Its what they do best here.
