Very sweet restaurant on a quiet side street in Minehead. Great menu with an excellent specials board using great local ingredients. Very homely friendly atmosphere. We had the best steak I have ever had, (and I have eaten at restaurants all over the world)

We went on the off chance of getting a table and was not disappointed.
Good tasty food, smartly served. A really pleasureable experience.

This delightful bistro-style restaurant is tucked away down a side street, but is well worth seeking out. We visited on a Tuesday night and found the place bustling. The owner and her staff were friendly, warm and welcoming, and there was a nice buzzing feel to the place.

We chose the mixed antipasti starter to share, then Rachel had a baked chicken dish with ginger and I had the fish special - a delicious piece of river cobbler wrapped around smoked salmon. Both meals were accompanied with well presented and tasty vegetables, and both were absolutely delicious. The meal was accompanied by a very nice bottle of Italian wine from the short but well chosen and reasonably priced wine list. My only regret is that we were too full to sample the dessert menu!

Hi GreenFreddie, thank you for leaving us such a great review. We were happy that we found you a space, and that you were happy to try us after reading a not so flattering review. Thank you for all the lovely comments about not just the food, but our staff. I will pass the comments on. It was a pleasure to serve you both and we would love to see you again in the future. You never know, you might be back one day. In the meantime we wish you all the best, Nicole and Fausto

A warm and friendly welcome despite not booking in advance, we were given a table after waiting 30 minutes in the pub over the road as the place was packed! Always a good indication in a small town. Our starter was amazing, the camembert came with an assortment of proper local bread, chutneys and fruit, this was devoured and followed up with pizza and spaghetti. which we thoroughly enjoyed. Too full for a dessert unfortunately.

I have never left a restaurant before advising them to put their prices up, and doubt if I ever will again, but the value for money at Fausto's was amazing. We had an excellent time and some excellent wine and would not hesitate in recommending this to anyone searching through Minehead for a change from the tired old Fish 'n' Chip options.

Will be back again next May!
