    Our recent visit to the restaurant was an unforgettable experience. The food was exceptional, every dish crafted to perfection, leaving us savoring each bite. The ambiance was outstanding, creating a warm and inviting atmosphere that enhanced our dining experience. What truly set this visit apart was the service. We have never encountered such attentive, friendly, and wonderful staff. Their dedication to ensuring our comfort and satisfaction was unparalleled, making us feel truly valued as guests. The exceptional service, combined with the exquisite food and ambiance, made our visit truly memorable. We are eagerly looking forward to our next visit, confident that it will be just as remarkable as the last. Thank you for such a delightful experience.

    Our second time at Bills. We had the valentines Day menu. For starters I had the calamari and my husband had the chicken sesame balls (shaped more like a miniature pasty). Both were delicious! The calamari was cooked perfectly and so soft. For mains we had the chicken dish with mushroom sauce and mash. All was so tasty. Unfortunately we were too full up to eat any more. The cocktails were delicious too! Again the service was quick, efficient, friendly and welcoming. Highly recommend but you do need to book in advance to guarantee a table!

    This was our second visit. Very tasty starters and mains, chocolate brownie wasn’t quite as good as expected but still not bad. Good service. It was a little noisy but that was probably just the rowdy table near us! Enjoyed our meal and will likely return.

    The flowerpot cheesecake was the main reason for us to visit and it did not dissapoint. Seating a bit close for comfort with other guests , we wanted something a bit more personal and private but a good experience overall

    Such a special lunch a Bill's for my birthday. We were seated a little out of the way so we could still enjoy the atmosphere of the restaurant but it felt a bit more private. The staff were lovely and gave me a free dessert for my birthday. We were given plenty of time to ourselves but never forgotten by the staff. Could not have asked for a more lovely time. The food was absolutely delicious and the menu was great, including tasty vegan/vegetarian options. We also enjoyed some beautifully crafted cocktails. Very grateful to the staff for our experience, will definitely be returning soon!

    Sat opposite the doorway, cold breeze every time someone came in. Thankfully the heating is excellent and was fine as soon as it shut again. The food was perfect, chicken beautifully tender and moist. Whoever was cooking certainly knows their stuff. The staff are great too, very efficient, courteous and friendly.

    Not the best service we have received at Bills Exeter. Had to ask more than once for butter from 2 staff; if you are given dry toast it should be standard to ask if butter / butter alternative is wanted, and the bill took nearly 10 minutes to come, again, asked 2 people for the bill. Wasn't so busy as it has been either, so a customer would expect attentive service.

    Food is nice and waiting staff pleasant. However, we were kicked out of the restaurant after 1 hour as the manager wanted our table. We had pre-booked our table and we were not told we could only have the table for an hour. This made me and the other members of our party feel very unwelcome. We will never return to Bills or recommend to others after this shoddy treatment!
