Lovely food, great sevice! Will definitely return.
Good menu with plenty of choice. Attentive service. Next table was a bit loud but that is not down to restaurant. Flat iron steak was very good but it was just still a bit raw in the centre, probably needed just a minute more resting before slicing?
Prices are reasonable, so we will be back!
Excellent as always. Your staff are always great too.
Lovely ambience and nice layout. Staff friendly. Food ok but steaks were all over cooked from what was ordered. Staff offered to change but as usual, it messes up the dining experience with people all eating at different speeds so we declined.
I love Harry's, I have been going for years and would always recommend it. Food is great and the atmosphere is lovely, the only downside is the small quantity of gluten free options.
Lovely lunchtime meal. Quantity of food a bit much for me but delicious. Disappointed as no children's menu, only had a starter mac n cheese really and was then charged £6.00 for 2 scoops of ice cream. I would go back but not with children.
A very nice atmospheric experience with excellent choice and quality food, we will definitely return!!
Consistently brilliant, great food, especially the garlic bread, great service, great atmosphere, great value and generous portion sizes - what more could you want?
We thoroughly enjoyed what was a superb lunch with excellent service.
The starters were great - mushrooms on toast, whitebait, carpaccio and ribs (wonderfully sticky).
The fillet steaks were perfectly cooked and my wife's butternut squash risotto was the best she'd ever had.
The wines were reasonably priced and were polished off with a beautiful Pedro Ximenez 'sherry wine' and a Sauternes.
Special mention our waiter - a delighted young man on a gap year - big smile and very professional.
We all really enjoyed our evening at Harry's. Overall experience was outstanding - great attentive service and food was fab. we had a birthday celebration and this was recognised which was a great surprise. We will be back but realise its a very popular venue
We had a very enjoyable evening. The food was excellent and the service was faultless. We will definitely come again.
First time at Harry's and loved it, decor, service, drinks and food excellent. 4 of us all had different dishes, stand outs were the fig and goat's cheese starter, the falafel burger and the choc n nut skillet cookie. Only slight disappointment was the crab linguine. Bramble cocktail also great, would like a bit more cocktail choice on the menu. Would definitely come back.
We went for a Birthday meal for four. The environment was comfortable and stylish, the ambience was warm and friendly. The service was efficient and the staff were lovely. We loved the food, it was all delicious. We would highly recommend Harry’s to anyone.
Lovely, cozy restaurant with with a menu that will please everyone. Large portions of main courses
Really impressed with this restaurant. My son is a coeliac and they adapted the menu for him. The food was good quality and plenty of it. Definitely going back when we return to Exeter
Harry's has been considered one of the best restaurants in Exeter for more than 25 years, and with good reason. It's located in a beautiful and distinctive building just far enough from the city centre to be away from the hustle, but close enough to be accessible. The atmosphere is relaxed, with friendly and efficient service even when it's busy. The menu is varied and interesting, the food quality is second to none, and the prices are surprisingly reasonable. It's not cheap, but I've paid a lot more for a lot less. It's a regular favourite for lunch or dinner, and I'll certainly be returning many times.
Came for breakfast with partner and daughter. He picked Aussie breakfast, I picked full English and daughter picked steak, eggs and tomatoes! Waitress very friendly and helpful, food was great and portion size very good. Will definitely return again. Thanks so much.
Absolutely amazing meal at Harry's! Loved the steak I ordered and the skillet cookie is not to be missed. Amazing ambience, perfect for our anniversary meal out. Great service and great meal, will definitely be back.
Always a great food and ambiance at Harry’s, can’t beat their Garlic Bread - T-bone Steak MR and a large glass of Red wine The Best !
First time at Harry’s but certainly not our last.
High end quality & service at mid-range prices 👍
I dined at Harry's twice last week and both times had steak, sirloin and filet and both were deliciously prepared. The Tennessee sauce was a delightful addition to the filet even though it would have been just fine on its own merits, and the bone morrow was a treat added to the sirloin. The wine list offers quality choices and I particularly enjoyed the Wicked Wolf gin with aromatic tonic as a starting cocktail. The dessert sherry was also a perfect companion to a shared chocolate torte and ice cream finish. Can't wait to come back!
Extremely helpful polite staff. Good menu choice. Pleasant surroundings. What's not to enjoy about a night out at Harry's Restaurant?
Amazing experience both gastronomy wise and social wise. To be repeated!
Really nice staff and great food not to far from town centre would recommend and definitely would be back
Amazing service and food. Could not fault my steak. Cooked to perfection with an egg.
Great food, service and vibe. Definitely recommend for either a romantic meal or a family gathering!
Brilliant as always. Never had a bad meal here and have been eating at Harry's for years. So refreshing not to be part of a chain and have experienced staff serving you.
I enjoyed our supper at Harry's, with points of higher and lower success. An initial bread board had one exceptional option (warm baguette) and less appealing triangles of cold sliced brown bread and breadsticks. Beef carpaccio as a starter was packed with flavour, and my main, linguine with crab, was great in terms of the pasta being perfectly al dente, but could have done with a good amount more salt, and without the tiny parts of crab shells in the sauce, which could be felt when chewing. I loved the environment and atmosphere, but perhaps was left me most longing was what I felt as lack of inventiveness in the menu. Super traditional options of steaks, burgers and fajitas are not befitting the hype that surrounds Harry's - it would be amazing to see a more seasonal, complex, creative menu to reflect fewer choices, but a more unforgettable dining adventure.
Thank you for your review and very glad to hear you enjoyed most aspects of Harry's. We will address our preparation of the crab linguine. Our menu is large, however we appeal to a large and varied customer base and I can assure you there would be a riot if we removed some of the traditional offerings! It is a fine line we tread and we are bound to fail to please 100% of the time. We are prepared to listen to criticism and are taking steps to improve are offering as we speak. Samantha
Booked Harry's for a surprise 21st birthday party for my daughter.
Staff were lovely and the food was excellent.
Would highly recommend.
Thank you so much glad you had a good time- hopefully see you again very soon Samantha owner
Amazing food. Amazing service. Great price. Will be back!
Lovely restaurant , nice atmosphere , good food - recommend it but you have to book
We had a wonderful time celebrating my Boyfriend’s birthday! The food was excellent and the service was great, we can’t wait to go back!
Yay that's great news - cant wait to have you back! Samantha
Great service, amazing food and definitely recommend going. We’ll be back!
From arrival to departure the warm atmosphere, excellent waiting service and delicious food make this the best independent restaurant south of Bristol. Attention to detail, well considered menu both food and wine is a refreshing change.
Thank you so much for your lovely review and kind words, we feel honoured. Look forward to seeing you again soon Samantha
Great food.... And a great atmosphere
Visit for lunch with family. Unfortunately there was a large party celebrating a birthday with 3 generations including very young. They were lovely and it was great to see them having such a wonderful celebration, however it was a bit overwhelming for our small party of 4 and a shame the restaurant didn’t advise against sitting in the same room as the party as it was just them and us.
Our steaks were a little overdone and my pork ribs a bit dry, perhaps reflecting the demand of an order for a table of circa 20 before us.
Shame, as I’m sure it could be really quite nice.
Our booking was made well in advance so didn’t leave happy.
We are always pleased to hear that families choose us for their special celebrations. We are usually sensitive to table plans and suggest different tables for guests based on many factors including excessive noise. We are sorry that on this occasion we were not in tune (excuse the pun!) with this issue. We are an in old building and limited when it comes to soften the noise within the building. That being said we can only apologise for not moving your party into the other room. Harry's
Food was reasonable but noise level was uncomfortably loud. No chance for a reasonable conversation while eating. 6.00pm on a Friday night and it could have been 10,00pm judging by the noise on adjacent tables. We were unfortunate to be placed near a large table [~14 guests] that was occupied by a large private party where some of the guests had been clearly drinking before arriving. Good venue for a party, not so sure I would go for another quiet family meal!
We are glad to hear that you enjoyed your food when you visited. We have a varied clientele and do not always know the nature of the booking until the point of arrival. On this basis we do our utmost to ensure that we adjust our table plans accordingly. We are sorry that in this instance we did not. Further due to our location in a beautiful Grade II listed building we are limited in terms of noise management. We hope to welcome you back in the future and aim to seat you in a quieter area.
Second time at Harrys this summer! We do not dine out very much in Exeter but this restaurant shines well above most others we have tried in the last few yrs.. Food excellent, service faultless and premises management clearly professional and effective. Keep it up! We will see you next summer - winters spent in Sicilian restaurants!
We always go for a night out at Harry’s when we are in Exeter and the food and service was great as always.
Another outstanding meal enjoyed at Harry's Restaurant. Excellent food, excellent service... it never fails to please!
