Senara Penzance

As one of the top restaurants in Penzance, Senara is renowned for its incredible food and service and yet it is also a classroom to our Professional Cookery Students. We base our teaching on locally sourced, seasonal produce and cook everything from scratch. Our students are taught by professional chefs with years of industry experience between them which is why our food and our service is of such a high standard.

Due to the latest government advice regarding the COVID-19 pandemic, Senara restaurant is closed.
Thank you for your support during this difficult time and we look forward seeing you in our restaurants again soon.

Senara has not only received a TripAdvisor Certificate of Excellence but has AA Highly Commended Status in Hospitality, Fish and Seafood and Patisserie and Confectionary. Additionally, Senara received a People First Gold Hospitality award for demonstrating a progressive and sustainable commitment to learner training and development. In fact, the restaurant has been so successful since opening in 2012 that it’s been expanded to provide more dining space. 

Senara offers incredible views of Mounts Bay and St Michael’s Mount, full wheelchair access and ample car parking adjacent to the restaurant.
