An Establishment!

This place been has been open for at least 20years and that itself is a good testimonial. Recently, it has been refurbished and looks quite upmarket. The same old tranquil and unflappable waiter is still there! It was a pleasure to be back there after a lapse of 5 years on my part. The bar... read more

However there's very much a local consensus of opinion that the food has all been pre-cooked (or pretty well much of it) and it's then been through the proverbial micro-wave. I wasn't overly bothered and on the whole was perfectly... More

Arrived late in Exmouth. Went into town at about 10pm on a Friday night, to find all the restaurants closing, We just managed to get into the Bamboo. Had their special menu for two people, I have to say the food was excellent hot and very tasty.

The food is ok nothing special. Visited here in a large party so decided to have a set meal and asked them bring out a selection of dishes. The food was just ok but nowhere near enough to feed all the party, the drinks were very expensive so when we came to pay I had a massive shock, it's is... More
