We dined here for the 3rd time on Friday evening and were not disappointed. The service we received from Karina was excellent, food superb, as always, all topped off with a lovely atmosphere. Austell's is well deserving of its number 1 spot on Trip Advisor, keep up the good work.

We visited this restaurant because we were meeting relatives who lived locally and who had been there a number of times before. There is no chance we would have found it otherwise because it is off the beaten track as mentioned by other reviewers. It has a modern exterior and one big plus is that there is plenty of parking.... More

We visited for my partner's birthday after reading many recommendations on TripAdvisor and we weren't disappointed. It doesn't look much from the outside and you would be forgiven for thinking there should be a fish and chip shop there instead, although this does not distract from the wonderful atmosphere, friendly and good humoured service, and scrumptious food. My partner loves... More

Of course we are back at Austell's as it is the best place to eat in Cornwall! What a wonderful welcome Emma gave us when we arrived. So relaxed and friendly yet you feel you are somewhere special having a big night out! We chose the taster menu £40 a head. Don't fill up on the bread, although it is... More

Before our order was taken one of the waitresses offered us a complimentary drink as it was our anniversary. This was not expected and... More

My son & his fiancé treated me to a meal at Austells for my birthday. What a treat it was! On our arrival we were welcomed warmly & offered champagne cocktails, try the Twinkle, you won't be disappointed. Our table was situated near the open plan kitchen & we were able to watch our food being prepared & cooked, something... More

What a pleasure to eat at! Loved the open kitchen (to me theres something nice and inviting about seeing where your meal is prepared) food was gorgeous and worth every penny, atmosphere was relaxed and friendly. Overall a very enjoyable experience we will be back again!
