Kota Kai

Bar & Kitchen

Eat, Drink, Lounge.

DIRECTLY ON THE HARBOUR HEAD.

Since opening the doors in October 2011 Jude and Jane Kereama have welcomed diners to enjoy a relaxing meal in a light environment with a wide range of dishes to appeal to any appetite. No less impressive than big sister Kota, Kota Kai offers a relaxing atmosphere and a menu that is well-deserving of it's AA rosette.

Kota Kai Bar & Kitchen is a versatile space enjoyed by drinkers and diners. Our menu offers a diverse range of dishes inspired by Jude’s multiple influences.
Amongst our extensive and well thought-out wine list you'll easily find the perfect tipple to accompany your chosen meal. Of course, there are always the array of cocktails to choose from also. Grab a seat in the lounge and enjoy a drink before being escorted to your table in the main restaurant.


Ideally located at the head of Porthleven harbour and occupying the entire top floor of Celtic House, diners can enjoy unbeatable views across the harbour, towards the clock tower and beyond.

The line-up also includes more traditional menu favourites such as the ‘Kiwi Burger’ and ‘Fish and Chips’ for those who want to stick with what they know.

Kota Kai has the added benefit of a children’s room  which offers the opportunity for kids to enjoy themselves with toys, games and books while the parents have a relaxing drink or meal in the main restaurant.

Not to brag, but Kota Kai Bar and Kitchen is also the perfect place to hold a special event, be it a birthday, a wedding reception, a christening or whatever celebration you have in mind.

Let's Party!

Holding 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 for parties of all shapes and sizes. Kota Kai can cater for sit down meals, more informal party bites and canapés, or alternatively provide the space, drinks and entertainment for an enthusiastic evening reception.
