Once again we were at this lovely restaurant last Tuesday with friends. Even mid week it was busy with a nice atmosphere. I started with the scallops and my husband had the crab both of which were delicious. Three of us then opted for the brill with scallops on a bed of vegetables which was divine. The fish was cooked... More

A lovely environment, very good service, excellent food! Each course was beautifully presented and tasted so good. The only problem was the difficulty in choosing what to have!

Fantastic food with a pleasant location. We very recently went for a birthday treat! This is our second visit and can say the food was top notch again! There is however for me a big let down ! A condescending owner who's humour was somewhat strange. We were there with our son and when the owner noticed he hadn't place... More

Every mouthful was a delight! Each dish presented with exquisite care, and tasted superb. Lunchtime set menu offers excellent value for around £16, but to appreciate the full extent of the cooking on offer, try the a la carte menu for dinner or lunch. If you like fish, you can't go wrong here!

We had lunch at the Galley to celebrate our daughter's graduation from Exeter University and it was everything we hoped for. At least 2 other families were doing the same! Delicious and attractive food served with friendly service. A small restaurant with just enough style to let you know you're somewhere special but not so much the quality of the... More

While visiting Exmouth we looked online for a fish restaurant, read the menu online and booked over the phone and hoped for the best. We were not disapointed, a smiling face greeted us althought we were early and showd us to a table overlooking the estuary. Freshly baked bread while we awaited the starters of scallops and another of Exe... More

My partner took me to this restaurant for my birthday and I have to say that it is one of the best restaurant I have been to in the UK. IT t is very small so make sure you book a table. You won't be disappointed !
