“Great find.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 26, 2013

Always on the look out for good restaurants and cafés wherever we travel: this was a great find and counts among the best!
The food was very well prepared, with flavours that had both impact and balance. This resulted in great dishes that left my hunger satisfied, and sparked an appetite to try other tasty sounding items on the menu. With a vegetarian and meat options in each of the Set & Standard, Starter sections, plus fish options in the Main sections, there should be something to please most people.
Good service (a quiet night) was calm, efficient, unhurried and un-pushy: just as I like it.
All in all, really great!

If you want excellent food, good service and friendly hosts you had better go to Austells! So glad Emma and Brett are back. The food is first class. We booked a table for my husband' s birthday in January and than returned for the Valentines special in February.

“Great food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 25, 2013 via mobile

Based on some twitter pictures from Brett and good reviews decided to visit and stay nearby. Restaurant was busy when we arrived but we were dealt with efficiently. Sat at bar, ordered food and wine whilst table prepared. Nice to be able to see kitchen but room got a little hot at one point. However food was top notch and well worth travelling for. Had a nice chat with Brett after the meal discussing the menu. Special thanks to the waitress who looked after us very well. Great place will be back.

“Worth the wait”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 23, 2013

We visited Austell's midweek during half term. Unfortunately the meat choice on the set menu was unavailable but we found alternative dishes we fancied on the main menu. The resturant was 3/4 full and it was evident that the staff were struggling to cope with the volume of diners. We waited for a significant time before our drinks arrived and had further long waits for our starters and mains. The food was very well presented and tasted good. My partner would have liked more fresh veg with his main course. We spoke to Emma on our way out who apologised for the delays and explained the 2 other waiting staff were new and they had had a lot of late bookings and were busier than expected.

“Fantastic!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 22, 2013

We went here again for my mum's birthday (I came at Christmas and was amazed at how fantastic everything was!) Anyway this was an absolutely super evening, the food was exquisite, service was great and friendly, made my mum feel special which is exactly what I wanted! So pleased Brett and Emma are back at Austell's - this restaurant is definitely worth a visit you won't be disappointed, and the value for money is exceptional.
