We booked a large party for my dad's birthday at the restaurant. Having been before I had high expectations. The atmosphere was great however we were split into 2 tables so 6 of us were back to back. Not particularly sociable. We pre-ordered our food and the starter of camembert was beautifully presented and absolutely delicious. My boyfriends maim course... More

We were after a tasty Italian restaurant for a lunch with friends and Faustos didn't disappoint. Service was good but we were not rushed or hurried. The pizzas were tasty. The price was surprisingly reasonably too. We would definitely eat here again when we are next in Minehead.

Really enjoyed everything we ordered and shared so I got to try everything. Salads are great. Scallops were very tasty. Pizzas are always excellent

Such a beautiful, quaint restaurant. The duck I ordered from the specials board was so full of flavour, slightly over cooked than I like it, but I could easily overlook that detail, given that everything else about it was lovely.

The whole room felt reminiscent of sadder, poorer days and smelled unpleasant. Two families who arrived later than us were... More
