Celebrated a friend's engagement with champagne. Great Food. Pricey, but you are paying for top quality food. Worth every single penny. Could not fault the place even if I wanted to. Would choose this restaurant over any other Taunton restaurant.

A good choice of menu, even though it was a bit pricey. It is very French. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Really can’t rate this lovely little restaurant enough! Brilliant service and never ever disappointed with the food. Great value for the quality of food we receive. Sometimes have to book way in advance to get a table but worth the wait. :)

As a group of work colleagues we took our friend out for dinner here to celebrate his recent marriage. We had a really lovely meal, as usual served by gracious friendly professional staff. Augustus never disappoints.

We came here as a final farewell meal for my girlfriend (with parents in tow). For starters we had the scallops & crab tarts - whilst the tart wasn’t exactly my bag, the scallops were absolutely tantalising, and I wished I could’ve ordered another portion...More

I've never had a whole sea bass at Augustus. Usually filleted. But even if they are you can ask for them to be filleted. They are very obliging.

oops sorry - didn't see the question. Parking is as people say just round the corner in a pay and display. Close enough to walk there in high heels!
