Romantic meal

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... read 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

Had a meal here with friends the other evening. What superb value! 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.

Never had a bad meal at Exquis! Staff are always friendly, food always delicious and prices are very reasonable. We visited as a party of 7 recently and we all had 3 course, 2 bottles of red wine and other drinks. The bill came to approx £20pp! Don't be fooled by the shabby exterior this restaurant is a hidden gem!

If we had closed our eyes and eaten our meal that way, apart from the language, we could have been in south west France, such was the flavour of the duck. Even the ever so slightly scruffy décor and place settings were truly French. A revisit by my wife with a crowd of mates has only reinforced the opinion.
