We were really looking forward to a nice experience here, going by the recent reviews should have been a lovely evening. Sorry to say it didn't live up to expectations. Just one girl serving and she really did not want to be there. Poor, slow and a bit surly. The food wasn't too bad but could have been so much... More

I wanted to write this review after reading some of the negative comments about this restaurant. This restaurant is not pretentious and serves excellent food for a very reasonable price. My family and I had a delicious meal last night: carrot & cumin soup followed by rump steak and creme brûlée dessert. We chose the St.Emilion wine which was excellent... More

Happy eighth birthday to Exquis. Been coming here for just over five years and the food and service is, as always, excellent.

I echo what many have said about the decor but it's firmly planted in French provincial culture and just what you should expect. The menu is small with a couple of really well reviewed dishes, the duck and the pork. I went with the pork and it was super, I loved the mustard sauce and mash combo. Heart warming stuff... More

Had been to Exquis in the past but it is now even better. a friend from Canada always has the duck confit on his visits to Exquis. I had an amazing guinea fowl with cheese sauce. The food is wonderful and the prices staggeringly low. don't miss this gem when in Eastbourne

My first visit, certainly not my last. Food excellent, authentically French. Not huge portions, but I saw this as a plus as it allowed me to pack in three courses without feeling greedy!! Chicken Rillettes and Apricot & Almond Tart especially tasty, couldn't fault. Very good value for money. Only area I was disappointed with was the lighting - ceiling... More

Amazing quality French food at slightly inflated price.The only minus is the rustic look of the place but then again it adds to the atmosphere,will be visiting again.
