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.

The food was beautiful and very reasonable at £25 for 3 courses from the set menu. Definitely worth a visit.

We ate in Austells with friends for our wedding anniversary so there were high expectations for the evening for all of us - Austells didn't disappoint. The food was superb, well presented, well cooked and absolutely delicious. We had a lovely relaxed evening with our dear friends and will be able to take away the memory of a great evening.

Worth noting they change the menu on a fairly regular basis so always good to check on line to see what is going to be available. Would definately recommend it for a slightly smarter evening out.

Lovely helpful staff. I have dietary problems which was catered for with helpful advice.
Unusual to watch chef's at work preparing your meal but adds interest to the venue,
Which they do professionally and quietly .
We are regular holiday visitors to the area and seen the advert in local pamphlet .
We have no problem in recommending everyone to the Austell's at Carlyon Bay Cornwall.
The food is hot lush and presented well.
