The food was excellent and the set menu very good value. Thoroughly enjoyed all the courses including an amuse bouche and handmade chocolate with coffee. The ambience is a bit lacking, I would rather have had silence than the muzack and all the decor was somehow chilly. However I would highly recommend this place and would be keen to return... More

The food was fantastic. Portion sizes were exactly right, presentation was simple and elegant. Flavours were truely beautiful. The chef was able to accomodate some requests to... More

Slightly away from the main part of town and so it's not a place that people a stumble across. But really worth the effort. From the amuse bouche of a mushroom soup to the starter of pigeon breast and the scallops my wife had through to the roast duck and hake for main, every mouthful was a voyage of delight.... More

We decided this meal at last minute and got in. The food was lovely and the service equally good. We received a very warm welcome. Had chance to read a small but varied menu. One thing I couldn't understand was the had an a la carte and also table d'hote, menu but everyone in the party had to eat the... More

We have eaten here twice recently both for lunch and dinner and it is very good indeed. It doesn't look much from the outside and is in a quiet back street in Truro but don't let that put you off. Some great local produce presented and cooked perfectly makes for a fabulous fine dining experience. You may need to leave... More

We booked on the basis of Tripadvisor recommendation and it more than lived up to expectations. The restaurant is an ex-pub which has been thoughtfully and attractively converted. Strangers to the city will need their satnav to find the location, particularly as drainage work currently disrupts streets in the vicinity. The atmosphere is personal and intimate, with tables in a... More

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.
