Having experienced a seven course taster menu at the restaurant for my birthday, I was keen to try the lunch menu. They have started a great idea called 'amazing graze'. Basically you choose as many dishes as you want. Portions are small allowing you to try several courses. Prices are set on he number of plates you choose, a bit like a sushi bar except the service is top notch and the quality excellent. If you have the time and public transport home they offer a wine flight to accompany the food. This is a great alternative to set price menus, allowing far better flexibility.
Nice one Abode

I’ve been eating at Michael Caines for the past 10 years and been prompted to write this review after a dreadful meal at the Savoy Grill, London. Michael Caines food is always to the highest standard, beautifully presented and tastes superb. The staff are attentive and welcoming. I never leave without feeling I have had a wonderful treat. Don’t go to London. We have something far better on our doorstep. Highly recommended.

The Adobe is located on Cathedral Green, a lovely part of Exeter. Dining area felt light and modern and the quality of the food was spot on, some of the best scallops I have ever had the pleasure of tasting.

If I had to be critical I'd say you don't get huge portions for your money but that is the nature of the place. It's definitely somewhere for a special occasion, you won't be disappointed.

I'll definitely go back when I am next in the area. Highly recommended.
