Lovely atmosphere. Lovely staff. Food was fine, of the steaks, burgers and salads variety. A cheese soufflé starter wasn't really a soufflé but was tasty enough. Steaks were cooked perfectly but a bit bland despite being aged for years in a Himalayan salt chamber or whatever. At £60 per head, prices were definitely on the eye-watering side
We really enjoyed out experience at Harry's from the initial online booking, to the follow up call confirming our booking. The staff were very efficient and friendly and made our dining feel special.
The menu had gorgeous choices of delicious food, thoroughly enjoyed our time at Harry's and would definitely return!
Really enjoyed the food good choices
Service was excellent
Lovely atmosphere. Excellent staff. Food pretty good. We really enjoyed a relaxing evening.
Fantastic lunch meeting family in Exeter
Day out in Exeter wanted a nice place for lunch. Harry’s delivered, varies menu, friendly and efficient staff plus the food was delicious.
Absolutely superb! Excellent local Devon produce . Lovely Brixham Crab and superb streaks . Service excellent . It was our daughters birthday and we were very well looked after. Loved the relaxed atmosphere and cannot wait to return to try all of the other options on the menu . Thank you
First visit as was
Thought vegetation options chosen unappetising eg too much wrap and chips and large white cheese starter off-putting with too little else
Sorry not a good meal
A great Burrata starter with lovely fig and hazelnut additions to a true creamy cheese.
The Spanish fish stew with beans was less authentic than it should have been with a gunge sauce and spicy chillis which spoiled the flavour of the fish - why do so many meals have to be spiced nowadays?! The Chicken Milanese was OK and creamed spinach was as it should be.
Exeter needs more high quality restaurants.
Always feel good to be dining in such a great restaurant. Every dish is so delicious., service is excellent.
Great food, great atmosphere and very friendly & professional staff. Made my daughter's celebratory 21st birthday lunch a great occasion.
My first visit in several years. The experience surpasses the fond memories I have from previous meals.
Service 11/10, Food 10/10, Atmosphere 10/10
Probably the best dining experience in Exeter.
Super efficient service, great menu, superb steak!
This was our second visit to Harry's and we were so pleased that it was just as good, if not better, than our first meal there.
Had a lovely meal for my sons birthday, I bought a cake in for dessert and staff were very happy to serve to us with candles! Very attentive waiting staff - would recommend!
Always a delightful experience at Harry's. This time I was particularly impressed by the care and consideration that went into ensuring my young niece was made welcome, a high chair was provided, the waitress offered to bring her food first, and also gave us a smaller spoon for her to eat with. The adults had a great time too and everyone's food was delicious!
Beautiful building a lovely find tucked away nicely lovely fresh food, we will definitely go again.
Throughly delightful experience.
Front of house was amazing.
Outstanding food, service and ambience. A really lovely evening out and looking forward to my next visit.
Fab food in a convivial setting
Great service and good value
Really impressed with Harry’s.
Very nice restaurant, service and ambience were great. I was all set to have the spinach and ricotta cannelloni but was told it was a new menu. Could definitely do with more vegetarian options . My husband ordered 2 half lobsters as there was no whole lobster on the menu .Nevertheless he thoroughly enjoyed it.
We really enjoyed our meal at Harry’s. It’s not cheap, but there’s a lovely menu, generous portions, fabulous food and very attentive staff. A great atmosphere in an historic setting. Well worth a visit for a special occasion or after work treat! Never fails to impress!
The food was excellent and the service was great.
Such a nice place, the food and service were excellent. Probably the best restaurant in Exeter!
Another fab night at Harry's, excellent steak..(again)....brilliant atmosphere and all round good way to spend a Saturday night.
The food is amazing and the servers are very nice too! Would defo recommend
Very good breakfast it is a fairly narrow choice , fresh juices would be a nice addition.
Great place to eat, food excellent, staff attentive - great service. Decor cool what more can I say definitely book there again. Thank you Harry's we had a wonderful meal. Fantastic.
Great food, great environment, great team. Well done to Harrys for maintaining their high standards.
Harry’s has changed. No longer the student go to place, much too expensive.
We were very surprised at the menu, no more Mexican dishes which were the trademark of Harry’s for years.
Lovely restaurant with a great menu with loads of local treats, will definitely return
Been several times and always first class. In my opinion best place to eat in Exeter
Menu is limited for a fussy eater! Good portion sizes but more chips than anything else (I had a burger!). The waiting staff were running around everywhere super busy but the restaurant itself didn’t look too busy. The drinks menu was limited for soft drinks but the overall feel of the venue was nice.
The Seabass was very good, the potatoes and beans were far too greasy (oil covered} for my taste. It was noisy and more tightly packed than I had expected. The service was very good those waiting were very courteous and efficient.
Lovely food and great atmosphere, will definitely go back!
Excellent food and excellent service. Warm welcome and all staff very helpful
Such a lovely place for dinner, would go back again 😀
Perfect in every way - 5* food, service and decor.
