Outstanding!

What a beaut! The food here is amazing, small but delicious menu. The duck scotch eggs are incredible. Got stuck in the gents and nearly broke a leg on the way down but for £20 for 3 courses including drinks I'd sacrifice a limb. 10/10!

As usual a great lunch, couldn't resist the confit du canard (which I always have) and it was delicious. This restaurant is only open at lunch times on Fridays now but it is very good value.

Amazing food and good value, if you want a good rustic french experience then this is the place. Do pay the extra and have the confit it really is worth it. Portions are a little small but it is quality not quantity here. I have had some amazing nights here.

Fantastic is the word to describe this place. Food was fresh, tasty and you got a nice gap between courses. Every course was great. If you have not been it's a must, fabulous set menu prices with real choices. Rustic French gem in the middle of town. Awesome

Went here yesterday and would definately come back. The menu is thoughtful and although the choice is less in numbers than mainstream restaurants, it actually makes life a whole lot simpler! The house white at £8.75 is very good and the service is friendly. I had the prawn and salmon roulade, followed by pan fried duck and then banoffee pie.... More

Went their last Friday with my family and as usual the meal was superb, and the crème brulee just to die for. But, oh dear they need to train their staff. The waitress was unsmiling and unwelcoming and cleared the plates before we had all finished eating, making us feeling rushed. The water jugs had hard water stains making them... More

I have eaten at Exquis several times and have always been impressed; but last night our visit was the best ever. I had duck breast with Gorgonzola sauce which was superb. Equally as good was the duck leg with plum sauce. A glass of the house wine, plus delicious crime brûlée was the icing on the cake and finished the... More

We had a bottle of champagne plus 3 course meals for the 4 of us and the bill was less than 100 quid on a Saturday night - cant really go wrong can you? Ok the menu is fairly limited, the service wasnt terribly prompt and the decor... More

This is the first time I am leaving a review on TripAdvisor, and I think this restaurant really deserves it. I went there on a Saturday night for my boyfriend's birthday - we are both French living in the UK - and it was great, The place is a bit noisy as the restaurant is quite small but the atmosphere...

I've been meaning to leave feedback for this place for ages. We visit here as often as we can and have never been disappointed. Really lovely tasting fresh food, different menu every week, very reasonable prices, friendly owner and staff. The decor is getting better bit by bit and adds to the authenticity but the food really is delicious.
