Great value Xmas meal. We'd booked over a month ahead so as to be sure to get in on our chosen night (the Thursday before Xmas). When we arrived (7:30) it seemed a little quiet but plenty of people arrived after us and the place soon had its usual buzz. Nice starters of goats cheese balls, mains of stuffed turkey... More

We ate here on Saturday night. It was busy but enjoyably so. Short interesting menu and wine list. The wine (sauvignon blanc) was delicious. The hake and steak we had were both perfect, the steak blue as we had asked, the vegetables were generous, and again perfectly cooked. We ate at the Glasshouse in Kew last week but I can... More

Had dinner here for the first time last night. (Been wanting to go for ages) I was not disappointed. The food was outstanding, delicious and fresh tasting. The Creme Brûlée was the best I have ever had anywhere. Thank you Kathy, you are one talented lady. Ricardo made us feel very welcome.

My wife and I visited last night and unfortunately it wasn't up to the usual standard. This us my wife's favourite restaurant in Exmouth and possibly we picked the wrong dishes. The lamb mains was very dry and although fell apart the dish as a whole was bland . The monkfish starter also was lacking but the duck was nice.... More

We love going to the Chronicle. The food is always beautifully prepared and imaginative. There's also always an interesting variety of dishes, meat, fish and vegetarian, and Cathy the chef, knows that vegetarians need protein just as much as anyone so her veggie dishes never disappoint. Always a pleasure to dine here, nice, quiet intimate surroundings with a buzz if... More

I arranged this reunion meal with Kathy over the phone and by email. Kathy provided plenty of choice and all we had to do was pre order because of the numbers. We had a fantastic night with Ricardo and his staff looking after us. The evening was the highlight of the weekend. Thank you all at the Chronicle.

I have been meaning to go here for a while but never got round to it until last Saturday evening. We all had three courses along with drinks for under £40 each and with the food tasting so good, it was a very good deal indeed. The waiting staff were very attentive without being in your face and nothing was... More

This was our third time here for dinner and each time it has been a fantastic experience. Creative menus and high quality food and service is spot-on: attentive but not intrusive. Very friendly and relaxed atmosphere. Can highly recommend.

Thank Peter C
