The food is always excellent here. There are always high quality ingredients and everything is always perfectly cooked. You can see the chefs hard at work in the kitchen which is fascinating. The owners work on the premises, Emma at front of house and Brett is the chef. They know all their regular customers and make them welcome. Although it... More

Scallops and pork belly starters were excellent. The steak was cooked to perfection, however the sautéed Potatoe gnocchi were burnt. Delicious Potatoe bread with herb butter, olive oil and balsamic were also excellent. Staff were friendly and the service efficient.

I live in London and enjoy trying new restaurants. This is by far the best meal I have eaten out in years. It is great to see Brett back after the time he spent away at another restaurant and the food is even better than it was the first time he was chef here. The staff do everything they can... More

The overall experience of Austell's is excellent. The open kitchen makes for a great buzzing atmosphere as Brett works his magic to produce top rate food. Emma and her front of house team have an attention to detailis as good as anywhere I have been and nothing is too much trouble for them. Great value for money. We go as... More

I've eaten at Austell's over a year ago, then in a happy coinsidence twice in the last month. The service is friendly and the food is amazing! I try and resist a starter so that I make it through to dessert, but as yet I've failed. The resturant has had a slight redecoration since we went a year ago and... More

Very impressed with Austell's. The food is just fantastic! The service is very good. The location might put you off as it's in a parade of shops in a residential area but do not be fooled. If you're staying in St Austell, this restaurant is a must! No need for a loyalty card though, that spoils it a bit...

We were lucky enough to be given a sampler menu here as a wedding gift during our stay at the Cornwall hotel and estate. As our first official meal as a married couple we were welcomed with a decorated table, champagne and even a little note on the matrix display congratulating us! The staff were very friendly and made sure... More
