My husband and I had a super meal here some time ago but I hadn't realised that I hadn't finalised the review. I've had to select August 2014 as the date of our visit, as that is the last date Trip Adviser lets you choose, for understandable reasons. The service was friendly and professional and the food was very tasty... More

Our first visit and a good lesson learned for at first sight you don't expect a first class restaurant in such a setting. But right inside we realised this is a step above a good restaurant. Presentation and service excellent throughout. Not a big menu but good for vegetarians and my wife delighted. I had the tortellini with crab bisque... More

On our last visit here we dined alone but this time we brought family with us and they loved this place as much as we did. The food is amazing and the service top notch! We had the tasting menu which seemed very popular and each course was well cooked, inventive and beautifully presented. Bret wasn't in the kitchen as... More

The building looks unimpressive from outside but once inside the decor is modern and stylish. The menu is comprehensive and complemented with wine suggestions. The food quality is excellent and served nicely by very attentive but unobtrusive staff. Overall a high quality restaurant with high quality food and wine at an appropriate price.

Austell’s is a great little restaurant a short taxi from the centre of St Austell. Located in a row of other places to eat and small shops it really is one of those places that if driving by you might continue to do so however I encourage you to go in and enjoy a first class experience. Service and food... More

Found Austell's on 'bookatable' as was desperate to find something more exciting in our area than the typical 'beer batter cod' establishments! Please do not judge this restaurant from its exterior and location. On arrival we were warmly greeted by friendly staff who asked if we would like to sit in the bar area for a pre-dinner drink. This we... More

we had dinner at austells 24/6/15 and it was fabulous. A good choice of food on the menu and some taster menu options. Some nice vegetarian options. The food is not over priced and is of great quality. We stay in the polruan/fowey area every year and the area is in need of a good restaurant and now they have... More
