Lively tapas place, with more of a bar/bistro vibe than a restaurant. Reduced menu due to capacity during COVID, but the food standard was still very high. Highly recommend the crab croquettes, and the chorizo was amazing
A limited menu due to staffing issues with the covid restrictions but wouldn't have noticed. Sat in the outside tables with this weekends weather was just perfect. Only the tapas/small plates available but these were very well cooked and seasoned. Great choice of beers and Spirits. Cant wait to make another visit
We enjoyed the “early bird” offer and would highly recommend the tapas
Lovely bar for drinks and food, staff so welcoming and friendly. Lovely atmosphere with great seating inside and outside. Would highly recommend!
All the staff were excellent, friendly and efficient. The menu was really interesting. Me and my daughter had the tapas, the baby squid was excellent and very authentic the tomato bread not so good. Overall it was a really good experience. Food was delicious, staff were brilliant, atmosphere was great
Great place to have a bite to eat. The Tapas were really tasty, recommend the Pan con Tomate with Sardines, delicious! The staff were all really friendly and efficient.
Spanish tapas tasting as good as in Spain...and I lived there for 7 years
We went for our anniversary and it was amazing service and great foot
The best tapas I have ever eaten, bar none. You must go and enjoy!
Booked for birthday meal for my adult daughter, her partner, two year old daughter and my husband and I. Very friendly staff with excellent service and food was lovely. We were advised on booking that although children welcome there was no child menu but we ordered a hake and chips main for her to share and we ordered various tapas. Do think they are missing a trick as could do some simple child friendly tapas type dishes for fussier children such as fish or chicken goujons. Would definitely book again if ever in the area.
Great place, loved the cocktails and super friendly staff. Would defo be back.
Great service, lovely drinks and ace food. Staff knowledgeable.
Great and friendly service, delicious food and top notch cocktails. Thank you for making our date night special.
Very good food with vegan and GF options. Real ale available too which was great. Our waitress was so friendly and went out of her way to make sure our dietary needs were catered for. Large portions. Would absolutely recommend eating here.
We had a selection of tapas - all extremely delicious. A good bottle of wine too, but not pricey. Thorougly recommended.
Almost perfect, but'd they run out of chicken!
We had the deal for 6 tapas & 2 drinks which was good value. The quality of the food was excellent. We ate inside and it was a nice atmosphere
They could have been more attentive and we might have had more. I think the waiting staff were also having to wait on tables outside as well.
Definitely would recommend.
Was lovely to be back out again and Spoken was a great place to start. Great food and excellent service. Would highly recommend
Arrived at 8pm and the drinks arrived slowly but ok. Went to order some food, so decided to order a number of small plates and 3 large plates but out of the 4 large plates, they had no chicken kebabs, all sold out!
So decided to order just small plates.
This took nearly an hour to arrive but they did over up free bread and then free olives and finally a free bottle of wine.
Food arrived at 9:15 but the calamari was just bits, so we sent this back and it was removed from the bill.
It didn’t seem busy in side but the tables around us all had problems, including one table that arrived 15 minutes before us but only just received the food before us.
All in all we had a laugh but that was because of the drinking on an empty stomach.
How can you get it so wrong??
Food was a little dry. Our waitress kept taking her mask off to talk to us, which we felt was not appropriate. The food was tasty but the chicken we had on our skewers was a little too dry.
Service was slow and had to catch waitress eye a few times to ask for drinks etc. Left with dirty plates in front of us - didn’t clear even when desserts arrived. Food was fantastic though. Waitress was very nice - just very busy and not enough people working I feel.
Delicious food, great menu, friendly and efficient service. So good we’re coming back in couple days!
Lovely restaurant with unusual meals which were utterly delicious. Would definitely visit again
We ordered two chicken hanging kebab, they were delivered to our table within 10 minutes of ordering so had obviously been pre cooked because chicken would take longer than 10 mins to cook. they were luke warm and the chicken was so dry.
The potatoe bravos that acconmpanied the kebab were also luke warm and were like mush.
We both left 3/4 of the meal but this was not picked up by the staff member taking our full plates away, we were in and out of this restaurant in 45 minutes.
we were only asked how our meal was once we paid the bill and we did tell them we were not happy with food we had, the staff member did apologise at this point and we were told they would let the chef know. No discount was offered to be taken off our bill.
Great fresh food, brilliant service and great drinks - what more can you ask for .
First time of going as fancied somewhere different. Fantastic service, had to change booking time as we were running late but this was not a problem and all confirmed by email before arrived and was no hassle. Ordered a variety of dishes to share between us and was not waiting long before we tucked in. Food was hot, cooked perfectly and very tasty. Reasonably priced for food and drink, definitely worth it.
Great little restaurant, food was very good and service was excellent! Recommend 👌🏻
Fabulous experience at Spoken. Wonderful food, ambience and cocktails. The service was impeccable.
Will be visiting again.
I went with my daughter before school started back.
It was divine.
I had the lamb burger and pornstar martini.
She had the pizza bread special.
They made her a non alcoholic cocktail also fab.
Finished with Ice cream and a expresso coffee on top wow!
Good food, good staff, great drinks. Probably my favourite place in Exmouth.
Food is amazing , we had the chicken kebab it was delicious so soft and taste unreal and the lamb burger was insane !!! We come 2 days out of our 4 day holiday it was that good ! I had the prawns they was lovely only thing I’d recommend is a kids menu x
Enjoyed the venue however only 4 main meals on the menu and one of those had sold out. Main meals were fish and chips, burger, ribs had sold out and something else I can’t remember! Not a place for children to eat, teens possibly so at a push. Rest of menu was tapas. Fine for adults but still not much menu choice if you’re after a proper meal. Great drinks though in nice location in the square. Food okay price wise. Not sure we will visit again.
Food and drink was lovely, had a variety of the tapas. We were offered water for the table but it took a little while before getting glasses for it
The food and setting are very good, and the service is outstanding. Kelly is particularly welcoming, efficient and lovely. All the staff know their jobs and show a level of initiative which is important for the customer experience.
Fantastic tapas and great service!
Tapas menu is so nice well worth a go.although when we went some had sold out ( they were very busy)what we had was lovely we will definitely be back
We loved the new seating area outside and the serving staff were nice but our experience was badly let down by the food. Some dishes overcooked and others under cooked. A tapas dish didn't turn up at all. Very disappointed because previous experience here has been good.
The food was incredible and throughly enjoyed. First time visiting the place and will definitely be going back. The staff were lovely and very helpful.
I had a lovely meal there, i had the chicken kebab which was delicious and the cocktails were brilliant 😊 The team were friendly and attentive, id definitely recommend trying spoken 😊
