yummy italian food & a great building
5
if you don't already know ask is a chain of italian restaurants - i've also been to the one in wells, somerset and both are in quite interesting buildings. This one in exeter is situated right by the cathedral and has two mains rooms to choose from both of which are well set out and spacious

the food is fantastic and just what you would expect from a quality italian restaurant - i have never been disappointed on the several occasions i've been here - the staff have always been efficient and friendly - a very good place to go with family and/or friends

Plant Cafe

there are 2 problems with this place - it's small and expensive but i still give it a 5 as it is a top quality café

the food and drinks are amazing with plenty of yummy healthy items to choose from - they also sell stuff to take away and it's all top quality

the only reason i don't go to the plant more often is its prices - i'm not criticising them for that at as what they sell is amazing but unfortunately i'm a pit too poor to eat there too often

it's very small though which is quite nice in a way (if you can get a table) as the service is personal & excellent

my kids love the place and often try and get me to take them there but apart from the prices i often don't go there because they don't sell beer or any other alcohol - must admit though i haven't been for quite a while but next time i'm in town i must visit as you never know they may sell beer now!

strange

having read the previous 2 reviews i wonder if this is the same place i've been too on about 7 occasions? !

this place is one of my girlfriends favourites and i'm more than happy to go there if she suggests it - it's well set out if you want a 'romantic meal' and it's also a good place to go with a group of friends - i wouldn't say the service is the best i've had but i don't actually have any complaints either - the food we've had has always been good - not the best italian food in the world but worth the money and they have a good selection of drinks and starters to choose from

the place my kids love
5
whenever we go shopping this is usually the place my kids say they want to go for lunch (which is good as the meals are so good i have have a break from cooking that night)

there's plenty to choose from on the main menu and look out for the specials too - i often have the daily soup and have never been disappointed - if you're not particularly hungry they have plenty of snacks to choose from with my favourite being the homous - i probably wouldn't go there if they didn't sell beer and if you're not into that they have a reasonable selection of wines to choose from and other alcoholic drinks as well as a very good range of soft drinks

if the weathers good they put tables outside - the inside is well set out with plenty of room between the tables

the staff in this place have always given good and friendly service when i've been there - they genuinely seem happy to serve you

Old Timers Wine Bar & Restaurant
Exeter | Traditional Restaurants
one not to miss
5
you could easily miss this place - although it's in city centre it's up a side street and then up a small alley just down from the timepiece night club - gets very busy though and there are good reason's for that.

as a pub it has a good atmosphere 'till late and better than that go for the food - if you want quieter surroundings get a table upstairs and choose something from the extensive menu of yummy food on offer - you won't be disappointed if you like good british food and there's lots to choose from. if you feel up to it later go to the night club adjacent to the old timers and have a really good night out!

Spice Magic
Exeter | Takeaway Food
appropriate name

out of all those we've tried this is the best indian take away in exeter and may be the uk as i've never had better indian food - there's a varied menu and they take telephone orders and will deliver - the only thing to watch out for (which isn't really a bad thing!) is they turn up quicker than they say they will so if they say the delivery will be 30 minutes it's more likely to be 20 (but we do live quite close so that may be why) - anyway i could go on and on about how good the food is but the best thing you could do is try it yourself

more than just a cinema

you can have a brilliant night out at the picturehouse - as well as seeing a film in comfortable surroundings there's a very impressive bar and a good tuck shop to buy some munchies for eating when the film is on and you can even take drinks from the bar with you to watch the film. it doesn't always have all the latest blockbusters but to more than make up for that it does show films that are not shown at vue and odeon so if you fancy something a bit different and alternative give it a go and they also have extra stuff going on like live music and there's a saturday kids club which is very good value - if it's your thing become a member to get some extras and money off

a great cafe

centrally located and a very impressive selection of food and drink - often gets busy but even so the service is efficient and the staff friendly - the food is very good value and vegetarian options are quite good - a good place to take the kids on a shopping day out and a very good place to go on a saturday morning after a friday night out if you've a hangover as that will soon go after eating some of their yummy food. Quality drinks as well as food so you can't go wrong really as long as you can get a table at this popular cafe

something different

this is a good place to visit in the summer - you can even get a boat there from exeter quay or hire a bike and cycle there - very friendly atmosphere and a good place to take the kids as there are no cars around (apart from in the car park!) and there is plenty of room for them to run around just be careful they don't jump in the canal? does get very busy when the weather is good but they usually open an extra bar outside - good selection of drinks and food so overall a good place to visit

nice food, good location

this is one of my favourite places to eat in exeter. the food has always been good and there are a few vegetarian options available and more importantly they sell big bottles of peroni to keep you going when waiting for your food (which doesn't take long as the service is excellent). for the warmer days they have a nice outside bit to sit in and the main restaurant is well set out and always has a nice atmosphere with friendly staff. There are plenty of places to eat in exeter and this is one i will go back to again and again
