Thank you Brett and Emma for another wonderful evening, celebrating our 40th Wedding Anniversary. Food, atmosphere, staff, everything was 5-star as usual and we all enjoyed our evening very much. If you are visiting Cornwall and want a special meal this is the place to go and Table 17 gives you a perfect view of the kitchen, fascinating to watch... More

Food like you wouldn't imagine from the outside, nothing was too much trouble and staff we very friendly. would recommend to anyone looking for something that little bit special without having to pay over the odds. Recommended by our B&B hosts at Penarwyn House and fully deserving of the wall full of awards.

I read about Austell's in Trip Advisor and made reservations for both nights that we were going to be in the area, figuring I could cancel the second night if we didn't like the restaurant. There was no way I was going to cancel. This is a restaurant worth going out of the way for. The service was attentive, the... More

Found this restaurant through Trip Advisor reviews and in no way disappointed. The location is unexpected (in a parade of shops out of the main town) but once inside everything was wonderful. The staff were all very pleasant and we really enjoyed our food choices. Obviously very popular so booking a must.

This place is a must if you are in the area. Every bite of food is delicious, and the service exceptional. The chief even came out at the end of the meal and chatted to everyone. We booked for a Sunday for the 'pot luck' menu as it is slightly cheaper. I was impressed by the choice of great food,... More

We were recommended this restaurant by Antonia and boy, did it live up to our expectations! Exceeded them, in fact. Firstly, Emma was a stupendous Maitresse d'. We had originally booked for 6.15 due to the restaurant being full until 8.30 but as the men's Wimbledon final went to 5 sets I called and asked if there was any possibility... More

Hard to find any fault with Austells, everything we ordered was fantastic, the service couldn't have been better and the whole evening was thoroughly enjoyable. Definately merits a visit from anyone in the area on holiday, with some interesting dishes on the menu there is always an incentive to come back again.

We had excellent food and the service was very friendly although time between courses was rather slow. They did apologise frequently but would have been better had they staggered the clients and not had most arriving at 8.0pm when they had difficulty coping. The food was very tasty and well presented.

We ate here following the great reviews on tripadvisor and we were not disappointed. If we had not heard about Austells on the site we would not have visited as the exterior is very unassuming and the restaurant is tucked away on a small parade of shops. However, inside is a lovely restaurant, nicely decorated with an interesting layout so... More
