I’ve been to Fifteen Cornwall twice now. Jamie Oliver’s restaurant is right on the beach. The tables are shallow terraces so that everybody has a clear view through the long picture window onto the beach. It’s like being on an ocean liner. The ambience is relaxed with lots of exposed wood and 70s style light light fittings and artwork.
The restaurant is about 5-10 minutes cab ride from Newquay Airport (aka St. Mawgan) making it more convenient than getting a cab into Padstow for a meal at Rick Stein’s (See GHW reivew).
The design is inspired by surfing but the menu is all Italian. It isn’t cheap. Aileen’s sea bass main course was £21 and the total bill for three (excluding service) ran to £112. Is it worth it? Yes, I think so. The antipasti platter was generous and tasty. The main courses: taglierini, risotto and fish were delicious and well-cooked. It’s a great restaurant for pilots and worth the trip.
