With only seating for 28 diners, reservations are a must. We were lucky to get a reservation for 2 at only 24 hours notice, but the meal was well worth the early 6 pm time. From the moment we arrived we were looked after with an attention to detail you don't often see. A leisurely opportunity to enjoy a cocktail... More

As regular visitors to the area, we now can't go to Truro without eating at Tabb's. Our most recent visit was for a family celebration and both the food and service were nothing short of excellent. The service from Deborah was professional and attentive, but unobtrusive, and her recommendations of both food and accompanying wines were faultless. Nigel Tabb's food... More

We just worked it out that we have been enjoying Nigel Tabb's cooking for 19 years! We first recognised his talent at his first restaurant in Portreath. We watched (and ate) as he first got into the Good Food Guide and then moved to Truro where his GFG rating has risen to 5. Most recently we have been for an... More

The food was superb, second to none. We were greeted warmly and made to feel very welcome. The service was professional and friendly with attention to detail. Every effort was made to make the evening special - with success - I would like to add. Would certainly recommend Tabb's with out reservation.

In a quiet street of Truro lies Tabbs with its warm welcoming staff and relaxed atmosphere, which is very much needed in today's hectic lifestyle! With an excellent standard of food (courgettes to die for!) which was well presented and cooked to perfection. Thank you for a lovely evening where the wine flowed, courses came and we left extremely full... More

I recently celebrated a milestone birthday at Tabbs, and what a wonderful evening it was. From beginning to end the service flowed seamlessly, with Debbie at front of house anticipating every possible need. As always with Nigels cooking the meal was to die for! I had made several special requests and he surpassed himself - the Tabbs two man team... More

Just off the main tourist trail easy to miss BUT for those who like a good quality restaurant, seek out and enjoy! What a lovely hidden gem, good wine choice and excellent food. Friendly atmosphere and excellent service; cannot praise enough well worth the visit. Will return when we visit family again.
