All our produce is locally sourced in the  Kota Restaurant Venison - The Kota Restaurant

Perfectly positioned on the harbour head in the idyllic fishing port of Porthleven, Kota has quickly become one of the best-kept secrets in the South West. But not for much longer, as this Cornish Accredited Restaurant has been recently recognized by the Michelin Guide, the Good Food Guide, Square Meal, Harden's Restaurant Guide, Hidden Places in Cornwall and the AA, both for the food and accommodation.

Kota is Maori for shellfish (Jude is half Maori, quarter Chinese, quarter Malaysian) and specialises in local fish and farm produce (organic wherever possible). The restaurant is renowned for its stunning seafood with Jude's signature light Asian twist.

Jane and Jude are passionate about wine as well as food and have created an exciting list of more than 60 wines from Cornwall to New Zealand. There is a lovely bar area where guests can enjoy a pre dinner drink.

For those either living too far away or who just fancy an indulgent evening of fine food and wine without driving, Kota also offers two double rooms with ensuite bathrooms - one is a spacious family room with double-fronted harbour views. The breakfasts are not to be missed!
