Fodor's Expert Review Jamie Oliver's Fifteen Cornwall
Bright and capacious, this modern Italian restaurant has won plaudits both for its fabulous food and for its fine location overlooking magnificent Watergate Bay, a broad beach much beloved of water-sports enthusiasts. One of Britain's culinary heroes, Cockney chef Jamie Oliver, helped to set up the enterprise, which has the aim of training local young people for careers in catering. To provide the staff with the widest possible repertoire, the £65 tasting menu changes frequently and lists five courses that might include a starter of gnocchi with wild mushrooms and hazelnuts, followed by scallops or duck breast for a main course and affogato al caffè (ice cream soaked in black coffee) to finish. You can also order à la carte, and there are usually moderately priced fixed-menu lunch options available. Watergate Bay lies 3 miles east of Newquay.
