Our Inspector's view

Situated on the harbour, Kota (the Maori word for shellfish) aims to bring a Pacific Rim seafood ethos to windblown Cornwall. New Zealander Jude Kereama brings an Asian-influenced approach of the southern hemisphere to bear on his menus. Typical dishes on the set menu are beetroot, goats’ cheese mousse, pickled shallots, hazelnuts and honey truffled; pork belly, swede dashi, sea vegetables and pork skin furikake; panko-coated hake, katsu curry sauce, carrot and daikon pickle. For dessert – vanilla pannacotta, poached rhubarb, rhurbarb sorbet, orange jelly and chocolate brownie crumb, or blue cheese ice cream with red wine poached pear.
