    As one would expect it was superb! We all had our favourites but certainly the turbot was top. I think closely followed by the Gurnard with that marvellous sauce and then the scallops. We shall certainly look forward to a return visit. Inevitably there is always room for improvement and if I were being hyper-critical I would say the music was a little over-powering to start with (i.e. before the restaurant filled); and at the outset there was a significant delay for the first double amuse-bouche to arrive. After that all flowed seemlessly. (Finally we all of us found the temperature a little on the warm side.)
    but I stress it was a beautiful evening, with superb food, an extremely knowledgeable sommelier with a stunning wine flight and generally great service.

    Service was incredible - relaxed professionalism. Food sublime. An unforgettable evening.

    The look of the restaurant, the food, and the service were all excellent. Certainly one of the best dining experiences we have ever had

    Beautiful setting which would have stunning views in the summer. The raw scallops were amazing - so soft and tender. The port hilly sauce was superb.

    If I'm honest, I was disappointed. Whilst I fully appreciate just how much goes into preparing the dishes on the tasting menu, I felt that the restaurant lacked atmosphere. The decor is quite dull and the overall experienc, not what I was expecting. We had two bottles of Pomerol: the first 2010 and the second 2011. The sommelier did not mention the change and I noticed it. Vintages can make a big difference to quality, taste and price; therefor I expect restaurants of your stature to point that out. Finally, simply adding a 12.5% gratuity (£98) is not on. If I buy a £500 bottle of wine or a £50, the service is the same yet one would have significantly more gratuity applied. Gratuities are just that and should never be linked to wine: at least not automatically. All four diners were disappointed with the fact that the service charge was added. The waitress offered to remove it (which we declined) but it created an unnecessary awkwardness at the end of the dining experience that overshadowed the evening. I recommend to stop that practice. Finally, like the Manor Aux Qautre Saison does so well, greater explanation of the dishes would have been most welcome. All in all, not a great experience.

    We have eaten here a few times now and have enjoyed it greatly on each occasion. The food is brilliant and I was particularly impressed with the Gurnard and Porthilly Sauce, and the Cornish Jack Cheese, Beet root and Walnut Tart. The wines [we had the matching wine flight] are excellently chosen by Damon, the very knowledgeable sommelier. The service is immaculate; unfussy and friendly.

    We thoroughly enjoyed our dinner. Service was excellent from when we were greeted at the door to helped into our cab. The food was phenomenal and lived up to all our expectations.
    The set menu forced us to try things outside our comfort zone and we're so glad that we did. We enjoyed everything that we ate and would most definitely recommend eating at Restaurant Nathan Outlaw.
    The paired wines were excellent and in some cases (Japans wine!) unusual and once again pushed our boundaries.
    Ambience was lovely and I am sure in daylight the views would be wonderful.
    Deserves the two Michelin stars and I hope to visit again.

    Restaurant was excellent, fantastic location looking at to sea. There was a great atmosphere in there too. The staff were very knowledgeable about the wine & food & incredibly attentive. Now the food; it was exactly what I was hoping it would be, incredible tastes & texture. It was a food education over three hours & a place a would recommend to everyone. Thank you chefs!

    The food was amazing, a real tantalizing taste bud treat. Went with the wine tasting to accompany each dish which only added to the experience. Eating at Nathans was a absolute pleasure and it was pleasing to be able to pass on our thanks to him at the end of the evening.

    Will be back again in the future.

    Many thanks
