We booked last minute after arriving in the area and based on the reviews we'd seen in trip advisor! The food was stunning and there was more than enough on the menu to choose from! My husband and I shared our starters - the crab risotto and the pork and apple croquettes, my husband then had the lamb which he... More

Not a very imposing exterior but don't be misled or judge on appearances. Inside the atmosphere is great, service excellent and superb food. I had the Duck burger which was mouth watering.

We were on holiday over new year and fancied dinner at somewhere different from the typical, but very good, local bub food. Finding Austell´s on the web and with early bookings possible (3 yr old was going with us) we were lucky to get a table. Without having particularly high hopes the whole dinner was delightful. Great service and superb... More

Six of us booked for a family meal on Saturday night to celebrate my birthday. Despite the location, the inside of the restaurant is smartly decorated and the staff were attentive from the moment we arrived to the moment we left. I was offered a free drink for my birthday, a lovely touch, and I chose a champagne cocktail which... More

We had the 7 course tasting menu with wine flight. It was all perfect from pre dinner olives to the fudge with the coffee. It was perfect. Service was attentive, friendly and informative. Food was thoughtful, tasty and just the right amount, perhaps with the exception of the dessert which was too big to finish.

I have been here many times and love the pork belly. My wife loves the crab risotto. All food is superb, excellent wine, not over-priced

Drawing up outside the restaurant you could be forgiven for having cold feet. The restaurant is located in the end of a terrace of local shops in an off the track residential area of St.Austell. Persevere though and you will be justly rewarded! Four of us all selected the crab risotto starter which was delicious and we split over the... More

Very much enjoyed a Sunday evening meal whilst on a break in Cornwall. Unpretentious but stylish decor. Excellent, attentive but unobtrusive service. Food was delicious. A restaurant that appears to find favour with locals which is always a good sign. Highly recommended.

This was my third visit to Austells and every time the food has been world class. I had a pot luck menu on this occasion, it provided plenty of choice. The bread was out of this world and the meal was superb. The waiting staff were attentive but not over the top. Well worth a visit

Thank Ash H
