Description: For a taste of the Mediterranean without leaving the West Country look no further than Exeter’s The Conservatory. With huge windows obscured by white blinds, tall exotic plants and Swedish-meets-French countryside painted furniture you almost feel it would be a shame to call in after sunset. But come in for dinner and you’ll find yourself in an intimate and romantic setting perfect for that relaxed dinner to help you forget about bills, work and worries. Sail away on a culinary cruise through Europe as the menu takes you from Britain via France and in to Italy and beyond with plenty of local ingredients to keep the flavours fresh and delicious.

Food was delicious, and brilliant value for money. Wine was very reasonably priced compared to other restaurants in the area. Friendly service and relaxed atmosphere. Would definitely recommend.

Not my first time here and won’t be the last as the food was fabulous. Great flavours and presentation over three delicious courses. Sensibly priced wines too. Lovely small restaurant atmosphere and great service.

Highly recommended

Only the second time I’ve been out for a meal since Covid restrictions and this was a lovely meal. Three delicious courses for £13 and excellent service. Thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. Hope to go back there again soon!

Went here for lunch with my wife at 12.30 on Wednesday 26th May. Do not be fooled by the drab outside as its warm and inviting with a great history once inside upstairs. Both had the aspargus and tagliatelli in a garlic and lemon cream and it was delicious. I had pork tenderloin in a mustard sauce and my wife had Hake and again absolutely delicious. Finished with a chocolate mousse with chantilly cream - wow. 2 courses for 310 or 3 courses for £13. We had a bottle of Rose wine to wash this down. The service from Toby and the team was first class and we can't wait to return. We are really fussy when it comes to food so for me to give 5 stars is a first. Say no more

Lovely food, decent portions and very tasty. I am definitely going to go there again with friends. I had the salmon and don’t usually have dessert but have a lovely cream brûlée with Turkish delight in it! Lovely surprise!
