“Nice place”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

We chose this place by reading the reviews on TripAdvisor and had a very positive experience. It was Saturday night, the place was packed, but the owner found a place for us. The menu has some very interesting dishes. Everything we had was really good. My son ordered a risotto with scallops and it was excellent (we are Italians, we can recognize a good risotto...), as were my husband's lamb rib and my fish salad.
The service was a bit slow, but probably because they were really full. The owner and her staff were really nice. No bad surprises in the bill.

Thank you for your review, I do remember you and your famly, we had to squeeze you in late on a very busy Saturday night! I was I recall a little worried about an Italian family trying our version of a North Italian dish, and I am so pleased that you approved. I hope you had a good journey back home, and I am grateful you took the time to share your experience in Honiton Wine Bar.

“Fantastic food”
Reviewed 9 July 2014

Three of us had fantastic food at The Honiton Wine Bar.Two of us ordered burgers and we were really impressed by delicious meaty pork and bacon burgers and hand cut chips.One of us had lasagne and found it tasty and generously portioned.The staff were very friendly and cheerful.Nothing was too much trouble.Once again sadly we had no room for dessert! We were on holiday in Sidmouth and ate lunch out every day and this is one of the best meals we had all week!

Hello there,

Thank you so much for your lovely review, I am really glad that you enjoyed the food and the service in our wine bar. There is a lovely atmosphere to the restaurant, I always enjoyed eating here for the 15 years I lived in Honiton before I became the owner. It certainly is lively on busy evenings which adds a buzz to our evenings. We all look forward to welcoming you again!
