Ben Tunnicliffe is to take over the Beach restaurant at Sennen in Cornwall.
The chef, who held a Michelin star at the Abbey in Penzance and later worked at the Scarlet hotel at Mawgan Porth, will open the restaurant in March.
He will split his time between the Beach restaurant and his current project the Tolcarne Inn in Newlyn.
Tunnicliffe said of the beachside restaurant: "Having a restaurant in a location like this is a dream come true; I can't wait to welcome people through the doors to enjoy relaxed dining and really good food for all the family."
The original beach cage at Sennen was built by the Shannon Family in 1959 who remain landlords. Its wood frame blends into the sand dunes, resembling architectural driftwood.
Known for his seafood, Tunnicliffe plans to serve a menu including fish soup and rouille, as well as his monkfish scampi. Local shellfish such as mussels, scallops and crab will also be on the menu, alongside fish and chips and burgers.
