Lovely restaurant, hidden away and appears tiny from the outside. Much bigger once you go down the stairs. Beautiful food and very tasty with excellent service.

This is a truly charming restaurant right in the centre of Exeter. The food was very good indeed, the mackerel with rhubarb and the scallops were fabulous and the desserts were absolutely delicious. A reasonably priced and diverse wine list and friendly waiting staff, what...More

For a taste of the Mediterranean without leaving the West Country look no further than Exeter’s The Conservatory. With huge windows obscured by white blinds, tall exotic plants and Swedish-meets-French countryside painted furniture you almost feel it would be a shame to call in after sunset. But come in for dinner and you’ll find yourself in an intimate and romantic setting perfect for that relaxed dinner to help you forget about bills, work and worries. Sail away on a culinary cruise through Europe as the menu takes you from Britain via France and in to Italy and beyond with plenty of local ingredients to keep the flavours fresh and delicious.
