Our Story

From Hotel Restaurant to Beach to Stage 

The Story  starts at the St. Enodoc Hotel in Rock, Cornwall.

The Enodoc is a fine dining mecca famous for serving the best of Cornish produce while overlooking the beautiful Camel Estuary. Previous chefs include Nathan Outlaw, Clare Smyth and James Nathan.

 

Sous chef Felix & then KP Blaise had both worked alonside each other at the Enodoc for many years through the thick and the thin.

In the winter of 2018, while Sous Chef at AnnaLena in Vancouver, Felix was asked by the Enodoc owners  to return to Cornwall to take on the Head Chef role.

Aged 22, Felix met the challenge, put together a young and driven team of chefs and got to work.

Blaise stepped up to train as a pastry chef and Felix brought on a friend of a friend to join Blaise in the pastry section. Through the flames of the kitchen the three became firm friends. With the summer's end looming and the Hotel set to change hands to new owners, Felix, Blaise & Robbie dreamt up a new venture free of the constraints of working for and at a large establishment. 

From their ambition, imagination and graft grew Taco Boys. A fine dining food truck located on Baby Bay, Polzeath. The aims of this venture were to bring fine dining to the people and celebrate the beauty of the beach.

Over a 2 year period, reputation grew and the team at Taco Boys were ready for the next step. With the need for a year round venture, the team sold Taco Boys, crossed the Tamar and moved to the beautiful city of Exeter. In September 2020, on a tight budget, the expanded team built the restaurant Stage on Magdalen Road.
