Amazing evening meal at Harry’s. Top quality produce, excellent service and always leaving wanting to visit again soon
excellent as always, this Exeter gem never disappoints
Small family gathering to raise a glass for departed loved husband and dad. One wheelchair user, very comfortable for all, lots of space and it felt very safe and super Covid compliant. Food was great, as was service, friendly and efficient. Lovely evening.
Five star from Harry’s as always, come here every Xmas when I visit Exeter, the service is very friendly and attentive, and the food always delicious.
Amazing food and lovely wine! The service was outstanding
I would highly recommend this restaurant, they have delicious food and great staff.
Great food and atmosphere in the heart of Exeter.
Very good service, great food and brilliant cocktails
Fantastic food with amazing service. I went with my partner and it was perfect; the atmosphere was chilled yet still upbeat, the food was amazing and I can’t fault the service at all. Would definitely recommend and I will definitely be taking my family and friends back there.
A good menu with lots of choice (given current restrictions), excellent service and quality of food. We had a very good evening, well fed and a great time. Recommend to all.
Food was absolutely delicious, me and my partner both ordered the rump pavé and it was the nicest meal we’ve been out for a very long time!! Will definitely be back
Our evening was amazing as always. Service was good and attentive without being overbearing. Food and wine was just as impressive with terrific flavour and good portion sizes.
My only issue, which is unfortunately the same that came from a previous visit was notes I’d sent to the restaurant. Our last visit was my partners birthday, and our recent one was to celebrate our engagement. I mentioned this both on the booking and by emailing the restaurant on both occasions, but it wasn’t mentioned. At the very least I hoped it would of been mentioned upon our arrival or at some stage in the evening but it was not. Pretty disappointing, but maybe it’s just something Harry’s doesn’t do. Overall though another very enjoyable evening.
The very best in Exeter
Such great quality food and served by the most beautiful staff . Felt safe and was a great way to forget about the bad times .
Fantastic food and service as always. The best place in town to eat. Suitable for all occasions.
I’m glad I followed open tables reviews and booked Harry’s
Friendly, attentive and accommodating staff
The restaurant itself is spacious and airy
Food was very good
Really enjoyed our family (children 9 and 11) meal out in COVID times, Harry’s have implemented a very COVID safe environment. From the moment we entered to the moment we left, we felt safe without impacting on the normal Harry’s atmosphere. The service was excellent and food so tasty. We really enjoyed it.
The food was beautifully cooked and presented. The staff were friendly and the service very good. My only issue was the lack of flavour of the rib eye steak. The cooking was perfect but I was disappointed with the flavour. Unfortunately, for Harry’s I have eaten the best steaks in Argentina and America and it is so difficult to find steak in this country that tastes as good. Everything else was perfect though.
They have implemented excellent Covid strategies and we felt very safe. Food was fabulous, as always.
The food and service at Harry's really is exceptional. Every dish was delicious and our servers were all very helpful and prompt. Absolutely excellent.
As excellent as it always is ! We love Harry’s. Thank you for another great meal.
Brilliant food, amazing value ! Would definitely recommend
What stupid rules on this review - surely the public can understand short words.
This was my second visit to Harry's and I remain just as impressed as I was the first time. Lovely venue, fabulous food and a warm, friendly atmosphere. Really good value for money too.
Lovely food, good atmosphere and friendly, efficient service. Would recommend.
Lovely food and service, Favourite Exeter restaurant.
Hands down the best meal we have ever had. Absolutely outstanding. We shared the beef Wellington, roast potatoes, maple carrots and parsnips, and cauliflower and cheese. We cannot stop talking about how tender the meat was, or how perfect everything was. The staff were lovelyand friendly, they even gave me a brownie with a candle for my birthday! Cannot fault anything at Harry's.
Great food, great service and nice people. What more could you ask for.
The perfect venue for dinner! Or brunch! Service impeccable! Food just perfect!
Came back for our 1st wedding anniversary and the food was outstanding and so was the service.
We really enjoyed our meal at Harry's. The food was delicious and the waiting staff were friendly and welcoming. The owners have obviously gone to a lot of trouble and expense to retain the restaurant's great ambience, while taking account of the need for Covid-19 safety and standards of cleanliness. I have been enjoying meals at Harry's for many years and it never disappoints!
One of the best meal we have had in a while. Cocktails were fab too!
Given the conditions that hospitality venues are working under Harry’s was spot on. Safe, well spaced tables, great staff and outstanding food.
Initially the menu seemed a bit disappointing but every item was tasty and one of the best sticky toffee puddings I’ve ever had (and I’ve eaten a lot!). It was quiet, probably social distancing helped, I loved it. Great service too
Perfect place for a date night, yes more expensive than other places but food and service were both amazing. Best steak I've had in ages, can't wait to go back
Brilliant lunch. Didn’t feel like we are in Tier 2!
Our go to restaurant for all special occasions and “want a really good meal out”
Lovely friendly greeting from the Boss and her fantastic staff.
Food (we all had various burgers) was tasty perfectly cooked and a good size without leaving much.
A great place to eat whatever the occasion 100% recommend
Many thanks to everyone at Harry’s
Superb food and lovely staff.
The restaurant’s COVID measures are excellent and extremely reassuring.
Thank you - we felt very safe as well as able to enjoy the meal.
A very nice brunch. Usual brunch fare, simple but good quality ingredients
Service was attentive but not overso. Food was good and the ambience was very pleasant. Sanitiser every where and covid checks done very quickly and professionally. Toilets were spotless.
Really friendly place the staff were lovely, very clean and comfortable
Food was hot, tasty and good portions
Fabulous food, helpful staff and good covid compliance.
