Food was incredible

I booked this restaurant for a date night with my OH. I phoned up on the Thursday for a table booking for the Friday. No issue with them being closed or unable to take a booking. When we arrived they greeted us by name which was a nice touch. The decor is very tasteful and the waitress welcoming... read more

Very much enjoyed our recent meal at Tabbs - the high standard we have experienced before was maintained. Food was beautifully cooked and attractively presented. Service was excellent. Good to have a hand-made chocolate with our coffee. Eating from the set menu meant good value for money - and we were offered the possibility to mix and match this with... More

This time yet another Office Xmas/end of year dinner evening out in this fabulous venue. Ok, fully accepting that previous experiences meant that we certainly knew we were not going to be in any way disappointed, it's impossible to fault what Tabbs provides. Lovely welcome, really top notch imaginative classic cuisine, beautifully presented with assured service and hospitality. Even for... More

I ate here for the first time and it certainly won't be the last. Although small, it is not cramped, just cosy and welcoming, with clean modern decor. The welcome and service was impeccable and not at all intrusive. And the food - well, everything I and my colleagues had was devoured with relish. The flavours were fantastic and everything... More

The welcome was warm and very inviting. The food was as promised. Excellent from start to desert. I combined this with a gourmet society offer which made it even better value for money

Restrained and sophisticated lighting and decor, white linen tablecloths, an impressive wine list, attentive and friendly service and a menu that meets just about any desire. And then there’s what’s on the plates: brilliant subtle flavours -like the decor, restrained yet sophisticated- sauces that complement the mains and accompanied by side dishes of vegetables that surprise and delight. You won’t... More

We enjoyed a superb evening meal for 4 at this unpretentious restaurant in back street of Truro. Service was attentive and knowledgable and the surroundings cosy yet sophisticated. The food was first class. Presented with exquisite style and constraint, each course, be it a smoked haddock chowder starter (sublime) or a duck breast on bubble & squeak with smoked paprika...

We had a lovely mid-week dinner at Tabb's. Not too heavy but really tasty. After the meal the chef discussed the dishes with us. We'll certainly be going back the next time we're in Cornwall.

The food was first class as was the service. You have to book and you may have the restaurant to yourselves which we like. They were flexible about the menu. More demand for dinner and should be booked. A very pleasant lunch time experience and we will go for dinner and certainly for lunch.
