Tabb's is the kind of restaurant were you just want to go back time and again. I apologise for boring readers with another glowing review of the great restaurant but it just has to be done. Tabb's is just the best restaurant in Truro. We had a great meal again. It is always interesting to see how Nigel Tabb tweaks... More

We live local and have tried most recommended restaurants in the area and this 1 is our favourite. I personally think its because the owner chef doesn't ever leave anything to any trainee chefs if he's not there then they are closed which means its always fantastic must of been to this restaurant 20 times in the last few years...

You go to Tabb's for the food - it is not trendy and the atmosphere is very subdued but the food is wonderful. The service is very good and the prices reflect the high quality.

I must say first of all the food in Tabb's restaurant is fantastic, home cooked, fresh produce, large portions, superb value for money. The only problem with Tabb's is they open and close whenever they feel like it. If you're not lucky enough or the owner does not receive enough calls or bookings through the day. he will decide not... More

Having visited Tabb's many times, I recently went with my husband on Easter Sunday for one of the chef's special events - a Victorian Breakfast. It was absolutely superb. A previous reviewer has already set out the 8-course menu, so I won't repeat it all again but we had a wonderful meal which started at 11.00 am and finished somewhere... More

My partner and I have visited Tabbs on several occasions and have never been disappointed by the quality of the food the service or the cost. Tabbs is beautifully decorated and has a wonderful calming atmosphere. It is tucked away from the main part of Truro but well worth finding. Probably best to book a table. The Hosts Debbie and...

This restaurant has been recommended for years but our lunch was very poor. There was a hen party which made our wait for our table very noisy. Tables were very basically dressed. The food was not memorable and there were no little extras.The deserts were particularly mean. Although we live in the area we will not return.

Tabbs has never failed to deliver. Perfect for special occasions, family treats, office do's, etc. if you want fabulous food in a quiet sensitive environment. The menu is always interesting and shows the talent of Nigel in producing complete meals of the highest quality that are always beautifully balanced. How he does it all in that small kitchen is little... More

This was our first visit although we'd heard how good the food was from many people over the past few years. We wish we'd come earlier! We ate off the a la carte and the food was excellent in every way. Service was attentive and friendly and we had a really good night. Definitely a place to visit whether you're... More
