“don't judge a book by its cover”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 14, 2013

we recently chose to celebrate my parents golden wedding anniversary meal here as we were staying close by and I had read good things on Trip advisor prior to booking.
I can hand on heart say that our collective experience was overwhelmingly positive and I find it difficult to find a bad word to say about this restaurant except that it is located at the end of a row of tired shop units . personally since I am no looker myself I have always believed that the it's the inside that counts and this is no exception . Food exquisite , service exceptional and ambience just perfect. My only regret is that I don't live in Cornwall and I can't visit more often. Thanks once again for a fabulous evening out to all the staff

“This delightful restaurant has it all!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013 via mobile

My girlfriend and I have had the good fortune to have eaten in a lot of nice restaurants all over the world and I'm pleased to say that our meal at Austell's was right up there with the best of them. The combination of attentive hosts, delicious food and modern environment hit all the right notes for us. Why can't all restaurants be this good? Would definitely recommend to others and very much look forward to a turn visit.
