April 2018, Kota Kai were awarded The Rosette Award for Culinary Excellence by the AA.
Kota Kai is an extension of the well-established and highly recommended Kota restaurant, offering a relaxed and light environment to enjoy a meal with friends and family.
Perfectly situated at the head of the harbour in the bustling fishing village of Porthleven, Kota Kai enjoys uncompromised views over the inner port, the nationally recognisable Clock Tower and beyond to the swelling surf of the Atlantic. With the option to Eat and Sleep in our B&B rooms above Kota 50 yards away, guests could turn an evening out into a short break away and really embrace the charms of Porthleven.
You may have seen the main man here at Kota and Kota Kai, chef Jude Kereama, showcasing his creative culinary skills in 2015, 2016 and 2019 on the popular BBC2's ‘Great British Menu’ as one of the three representatives of the South West.
We can't wait to see Jude work his magic in the television kitchen from the 12th May 2021 once again as one of the three talented chefs representing the South West.
LOCALLY SOURCED, AND WHERE POSSIBLE, ORGANIC
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
"Fusion food at its best" Visiting Porthleven on a beautiful sunny day, with there being plenty of restaurants to choose from. Kota Kai's reputation and interesting menu tempted us in, and what a fantastic temptation it was.

"Brilliant" Great for all the family with a really good little children's play area - Sunday roast best in the county, mainly due to the roast beef being spot on. Staff attentive and good with the kids. Would Highly recommend!

"Exceptional meal, Priceless view" First time here with family. Small village with a spectacular restaurant . A hidden gem. The superb view from all windows is incredible and adds to the experience. You can't miss out on Kota Kai!
