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

Went there yesterday with my wife, her sister and husband. They had been there before 5 years ago and were very impressed then, so wanted us to experience the place too. On finding the place, you be forgiven for thinking this wasn't going to be the greatest, as it's at the end of a parade of shops. With the local... More

I thought I would give this new-to-me-restaurant a try early on a Thursday evening. I was shocked to find it fully booked when I arrived but they found me a seat fairly quickly by juggling around a few tables. In the meantime I enjoyed a seat at the bar with a very tasty coffee. I chose the rib-eye steak dish... More

Partner found this very informative and really enjoyed the tasting. My mother and myself stayed in the coffee area and must remark on the polite, friendly staff. The omelettes were brilliant.

Had a wonderful meal here tonight. I had local pork belly and my husband had hake. Both meals were beautifully cooked and presented. I also had rhubarb trifle, which was delicious. The staff were friendly despite being busy and were attentive without being intrusive. There was a really good ambience. Definitely worth a visit.
