Jamie Oliver's Fifteen Cornwall

Feel good dining with fabulous sea views

Overlooking Watergate Bay, Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Cornwall is one of the South West’s more spectacular spots for lunch or dinner.

Diners can watch surfers racing over the waves or sit back and take in a glorious Cornish sunset through the restaurant’s vast picture windows. The vibe is contemporary, with clean lines and lots of funky elements including a big mural along one wall.

Jamie Oliver’s Fifteen Cornwall, which opened its doors in 2006, has played a major part in turning the north Cornish coast into a foodie destination, with nearby restaurants springing up including Zacry’s at Watergate Bay Hotel, The Green Room at Retallack, and St Moritz.

It’s home to the Cornish Food Foundation, which takes young people and transforms them into promising chefs under the watchful eye of a team of top chefs. Since the scheme was launched, it has enrolled around 150 apprentices – and incredibly around 80% of them are still working as chefs.

The menus are Italian inspired with a Cornish twist, using only the highest quality ingredients, many of which are sourced locally.
