Since opening Kota has been the proud recipient of multiple awards including 2 Rosettes by the AA, a Bib Gourmand from The Michelin Guide, as well as being recognized by many Eating Out guides including The Good Food Guide, The Trencherman’s Guide, Harden’s Restaurant Guide and Eat Out Cornwall.

Kota was also named in The Telegraph as one of The Top 50 Summer Restaurants in Britain in August 09.

Chef/owner Jude Kereama is a New Zealander who has won awards for his restaurants in both London and Auckland before moving down to Cornwall.

Chosen to represent the South West in Great British Menu, Jude and his wife Jane, who heads up the front of house, strive to give their customers an experience to remember with their award winning food, extensive wine list and relaxed yet attentive service.  The 2 Bed & Breakfast rooms are an added bonus, one with stunning harbour views.

Nearby there is a lovely, mainly shingle, beach in a bay backed by cliffs that offers a wonderful spot to spend the day.

If you feel active, there are plenty of rock pools to explore and rock climbing to be done! Wonderful coastal walks go East or West from Porthleven, with the famous Loe Bar – the largest natural freshwater lake in Cornwall – being a real highlight. For experienced surfers, Porthleven is famous for its reef break.

Not for the faint hearted though! Other activities in the area include local boat trips, fishing trips and kayaking, all from Porthleven harbour, as well as an active artistic scene for the more creative minded visitors.

Due to the strict conservation measures Porthleven in Cornwall remains an unspoilt, working harbour that attracts visitors who want to get away from it all and be inspired by the surroundings and the way of life.
