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. :)

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.
