Went here last night after looking it up on trip advisor. We have just moved to the area and decided to have a much needed night out here. It was fantastic. The food was really good, atmosphere nice and we had a really good evening. I had the turbot for main and it was heavenly. The crab starter was unusual... More

Found this place having looked through trip advisor for suggestions, it was a brilliant find. We arrived on Tuesday evening & it looked very nice from the outside & once inside it's got a very nice relaxed, slightly up market decor. The restaurant wasn't full, guess that's because it was a Tuesday but still had a really good atmosphere. We... More

We visited Truro for the first time and decided to try Gravy having been recommended to it by our hotel. We were very impressed by everything we found, so much so that we returned two nights later to make sure that we were not dreaming - and we were not! Excellent food, good ambiance, good wine, attentive service. Difficult to... More

Wow wow wow I have lived in Truro for 2 years and I'm asking myself why I haven't tried this place before. The food was amazing from start to finish and I can't wait to go back for my anniversary in October! I had the scollops to start then poussin for main and another person got the duck fat chips...

Another lovely evening with friends at Gravy Boesti. Nice atmosphere, lovely menu, great service, wonderful food beautifully presented. All at a pretty reasonable price for the standard on offer. No surprises there, then. Decor and upholstery looks like it could do with an upgrade - not a criticism as what they've got has served them well but it really needs... More

Was slightly nervous about this evening as we were taking some very fussy friends from London out to dinner. I needn't have worried - from the moment we entered the restaurant we were instantly put at ease. We were welcomed by the staff in a relaxed, friendly manner, given a menu where we all wanted everything on offer and enjoyed... More

Since my last visit the food is even better and the menu more adventurous - and it was very good last time. The staff are great and the atmosphere is equally good --but --the extractor system is really poor so that when the doors are closed your clothes retain the memory of the cooking as much as you do. They... More

This is not an inexpensive restaurant, prices are on a par with SW London and food is comparable, however when you open yourself to scrutiny, you have to be able to take feedback, and an open kitchen is a risk if hygiene is poor. During the whole time we were there during a sweltering evening, none of the chefs washed... More
