Had a very nice lunch at Bar V today and the staff couldn't have been more helpful, when I wanted some bacon added to the poached eggs and ciabatta. Also, very good location.

This cafe/retaurant/bar has a lovely location on the Quays at Exeter. The food is really lovely, full of flavour and nicely presented by attentive staff. There are shisha pipes available if you want them but I haven't seen many people using them. Live music happens...More

Not a great menu, typical English/Italian staples, lots of outdoor seating but make sure you remember the table number when you order as all orders are taken inside the main restaurant. The main restaurant itself is pretty basic, staff are pleasant enough and the food...More

Carte d'Or ice cream is, of course, a lure but you'll hardly get any of it on top of your cone from this place and at £2.50 for a scoop it's a total disappointment and quite frankly a rip off.

Lovely waitress service, a little basic in decor but clean and with nice trendy atmosphere with good food. Great musician on the evening we went.

Filled with Venetian romance and Mediterranean spirit, Bar Venezia sits on the tranquil quayside, next to the River Exe. The extensive menu not only offers Italian classics, but also Portuguese, Spanish, French and Greek delicacies, which are perfect to enjoy with river views on the ample al fresco seating. The Mediterranean buzz kicks up a gear with the regular dance classes and club nights, making it a true slice of the continent.
