An incredibly safe atmosphere- delicious food- lovely touches like hand gel on tables.
A great experience and very thoughtful waiting staff.
A fantastic restaurant for a special evening. We were booked in April for my daughter’s birthday.
We often go to Harry’s for special celebrations.

Incredible food, served with such professionalism. We tasted normality for the first time in months. The environment has been done with real care and you feel like you are in a private dining experience not a booth. Well done, congrats and thank you for my family experience - in a time when outstanding is going to be even more difficult to achieve - you smashed it.

Lovely restaurant, friendly staff, great service. Just a little bit cold eating our meal as all doors open. This is understandable at the moment, but makes the dinning experience not as comfortable.

A friendly welcome awaited us. Covid 19 rules and regulations explained. Our waitress was very professional, helpful and friendly. The menue was slightly reduced from how it was months ago but still plenty of choice . It was most probably one of the best meals I had at Harry's. It was outstanfing. Quality, presentation and a delight to eat. Look forward to going back soon.

A fantastic experience and delicious, tasty food. Visited for Sunday Lunch with our 2 Children (both under 11), and thought the service was incredibly attentive and friendly. We really enjoyed ourselves, so thanks to the ‘Harry’s’ Team.

Absolutely amazing brunch. Food was exceptional. Staff were attentive, kind and professional, particularly with the corona restrictions. Food was bought out quickly and really was amazing. We had two toddlers with us and they were super happy with their french toast and hot chocolate.
Decor was beautiful and felt really unique. Fab.

Really excellent. Flat iron steak was moist and pink. Chips were fluffy and crispy. Crab linguine was not too salty. Our best meal on our 1-week visit to Exeter/Devon.

Harrys is the best restaurant in the Exeter area by miles. It was fantastic to go back after being locked down for so long. Outstanding service and food as always. Made to feel welcome and cared about from the moment you step in the door until you step out after a superb meal

Harry's has been a favourite venue for our weekend lunch dates for a couple of years, so it was great to be able to return after the lockdown restrictions were relaxed. The food and service were as great as ever, and the ambience was still friendly and relaxed despite the limited numbers allowed due to social distancing. Odourless hand sanitizer is provided at the door and on every table, and a quick and non-intrusive infrared temperature test on entry adds a welcome sense of safety in these difficult times.
