Excellent service, really friendly and helpful staff. The food was delicious and 2 great vegan options (not the standard bean burger! )
Will definitely be returning.

We visited on Sunday 9th May and we all had one of the amazing Margoux Roasts! The food was amazing, very good size portion and definitely value for money! It’s worth paying that little bit extra for.
The staff were all lovely and welcoming, and also attentive, nothing was too much trouble.
Unfortunately a small fight broke out on our visit, but it was dealt with professionally, and the staff came over to apologise - which I thought was a very nice thing to do.
I cannot wait to return for dinner and drinks once covid has gone, to try more of your food! Thank you

Maybe a few more potatoes/veg with roast but overall fine. Wasn’t fully booked but we weren’t offered table under gazebo so we’re sat under an umbrella & it rained a bit so probably would have been more sheltered under the gazebo but overall really nice food & friendly staff!

"I love the relaxed feel of this place (also very COVID friendly). I definitely would return.

The cocktails & scotch eggs were a great hit.

Service was well-timed and friendly. Great work team Margoux.

Poor! Such a disappointment. I understand the changes made for outdoor dining, but considering what you expect from Margoux, it's not even close to the usual experience.

Service was very slow even through there were only 4 tables there to serve, also kept forgetting items which had been previously asked for. The fairy lights fell done and staff accused a member of our group of pulling it down

I had been in the restaurant under the previous brand/management and was sad to see them go. I was so happy to see that Margoux opened in the same space, and I ABSOUTELY love what they did to the outdoor patio space. It's absoutely perfect and has a wonderful vibe.

We went to Margoux on our first meal out post-third-lockdown, and the food did not disappoint. I think I forgot to breathe! We will definitely be back!

This is the third time I have eaten here. Always a great service with a great atmosphere. The staff are fantastic and always very welcoming. It’s one of the few places in Exeter that offers a sophisticated experience but also offers good value for money.

My partner and I went to margoux for my birthday last November and absolutely fell in love with it, it quickly become our new favorite place to eat even though we had only been once, with this in mind I booked for my partners birthday which was last Saturday night, we were pretty excited to be coming back, however we we’re quickly disappointed as soon as we got shown outside to our table, what was a quaint and cute little place to eat now reminded us of a wetherspoons, we still love margoux but could not help but walk away after feeling disappointed, however, we understand that they have needed to diversify to survive the current circumstances which is fair enough, hopefully they can keep the diners and drinkers separate when we’re aloud to eat inside again. We didn’t understand why our fillet steaks come out in takeaway boxes and plastic cutlery when our drinks come in glasses? Overall we still love Margoux, but maybe less TOWIE wanabes and separate dinning area may restore our love it

I have been to margoux on a few occasions and it is always brilliant. The food was delicious, the garden was lovely and Kingsley and the rest of the team made us feel so welcome. The pimms was perfect in the sunshine too.

It would have been nice to have alittle background music but with the current restrictions the lack there of is to be expected.

10/10 - looking forward to the next excuse to be able to come!

The food was extremely overpriced and not very good. We paid £7 for 5 pieces of grilled asparagus served in a cardboard box. Outrageous. Very disappointed, the £18 ‘jug’ of Pimms meant to serve 4 didn’t even fill both of our glasses fully

Our booking was for a Thursday afternoon and we expected it would be busy and that staff would be frazzled. However, it was amazing. Kingsley greeted us took us to our table and Caz served us too. The whole afternoon was great best of all the food was soooo tasty and such good value for money too. We will definitely be back, felt totally safe and secure and all Covid rules were adhered to. I can highly recommend.

A lamb flat bread with pomegranate ... was delicious along with the fish of the day and asparagus ... crispy sea bass filets. Korean fried chicken kfc ! With salad and kimchi... the Chef there is amazing ... really v talented.
