We visited ‘Austells’ on the last night of our holiday in Cornwall based on a recommendation from our hosts at Hillside House Guest House. We had a wonderful meal. We selected from the a la carte menu although there was a 3 course fixed price menu also on offer for £25. The lamb we had for our main course was succulent and tender and our starters and desserts were also of a high standard. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Our bill came to £68 (for 2 people) which was for food only as we had 2 complimentary glasses of wine. This was excellent value for money for the standard of food and service on offer. It is probably one of the best meals we have had for a long time.
The restaurant is small and unpretentious and run by people who obviously take great pride in their business. Do not be put off by the exterior which is in a parade of shops. The restaurant is rightly very popular so be sure to book to guarantee a table.
