Relaxed atmosphere, great taste, the only thing to change is to bring starter first and then when starter is finished, the main course.

The food was lovely, with an interesting menu and excellent preparation. we wanted soft drinks and the selection was limited, but what we had was very acceptable. It is a shame that the table was very sticky, which made one feel concerned about the general cleanliness.

The menu was very limited. There were two of us dining and both with our starters and with the main course they failed to bring both dishes together. One of us had to start eating otherwise it might have gone cold while the other was waiting for their meal. The side dish we ordered with our main courses arrived half way through our meal and only then after we asked where it was! Would not go again. There are better restaurants in Exmouth Market.

We had a lovely time here - the food was very satisfactory and served at the right pace. The cauliflower small plate was especially good. The ambiance was just what we were looking for - buzzy but not too noisy or raucous. The service was very good (especially from the Irish girl from Belfast) - attentive, smiling and chatty enough without being intrusive. I would definitely go back for a similar meal (7 people of mixed age range)

First visit to any of the Caravans. Nice space with a neighbourhood feel, about half full on a Thursday evening. The service was welcoming, warm and friendly - probably its high point for me as I found the menu quite odd and hard to find anything that appealed. I’d booked it as my veggie companion quite likes it and she was happy. I sampled one of her cauliflower-based small plates and it was very tasty, but I am so over small plates and sharing! Instead I had the chicken “large plate” (great, now I feel greedy) and it was ok but not so very much bigger than the small ones. We both enjoyed the angel cake dessert. Overall not really for me.

Hi Chloie, Sorry to hear Caravan wasn't the one for you. Our concept is well traveled and therefor we offer lots of interesting flavour combinations that we hope will appeal to many. We change the menu a few times a year so perhaps the next one will be better for you. Kind regards, Mel

The staff were very welcoming and accommodating - we were late for our booking due to a confused Uber driver, and had not been able to get through the restaurant. However, on arrival the staff at the restaurant quickly found us a table and were able to re-jig other bookings so that we were not rushed - which was much appreciated.

The food was lovely but the waitress forgot some of our order and the cornbread came out cold. We were told one of the ice cream desserts was the same as affogato which it really wasn’t - vanilla ice cream with a scoop of very sickly sweet toffee sauce with the vaguest hint of coffee. The waitress also didn’t know or gave incorrect answers to questions about dietary requirements. The front of house manager guy was very friendly and gave much better service but the evening wasn’t quite as good as we had hoped. Would definitely return as the food and atmosphere is nice.

I did really enjoy it much more than I thought I would- the service was impeccable: our waiter was very attentive, the portion sizes were perfect: we shared pretty much everything, every single dish was absolutely delicious and all the ingredients seemed perfectly balanced. We all agreed the best dish was the cod dumplings. I also appreciated the subtle darkness - made it all even better.

Service could have been more attentive, very slow at times. One of our meals was pretty bland but otherwise ok, not groundbreaking. We were a group of six and had a good time.
