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.
Hosting a party is one thing that Kota Kai does exceptionally well.
We have a dedicated team that will help you realise your ideas for a perfect celebration whatever the event. The versatility of the restaurant space, three separate rooms in addition to the main restaurant, allows us to accommodate most requests.
LOCALLY SOURCED, AND WHERE POSSIBLE, ORGANIC

"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!
