Restaurant description

With stunning views of Exeter Cathedral, The Terrace is a chic venue spread out over different floors. Enjoy al fresco dining at the rooftop bar alongside craft beers and signature cocktails, while down on the first floor there is a glamorous club with regular live music from international names and smaller upcoming artists.

The Terrace menu is filled with modern international flavours throughout the day, starting off with classic brunch dishes like traditional and veggie full English breakfasts, as well as eggs Benedict and crushed avocado on toast. Tapas treats are perfect for sharing, and include rock oysters, grilled purple broccoli and teriyaki chicken wings, while hearty mains feature continental flavours like the slow-cooked venison ragu, and the duck confit burger.

All kinds of colourful cocktails are mixed up at The Terrace in Exeter, with premium spirits, wines and craft beers also on the menu. For those looking for something sweet, try desserts like passionfruit and white chocolate meringue tart, or warm toffee and banana loaf.

Also offering dedicated children's menus, The Terrace is a modern, versatile eatery with stunning city views. Exeter Central Rail Station is just 3 minutes' walk away.

    Very nice place, didn’t eat in the end as the service was so poor we waited half hour to be served a drink.

    Very fast service. Shame weather was poor as it would have been nice to use the roof terrace but the inside of the restaurant was lovely too. Food was very good. Especially the Belgian waffles!

    Lovely food, however the service was absolutely appalling. Our waitress forgot about us and eventually it took the barman noticing that we still didn’t have food to ask us if we’d been served. We were sat there for an hour and 15 minutes before that.

    If you want to wait 2 hours for food I’m an empty restaurant to then be served the incorrect order, make sure to book up Terrace. For the most incredibly awful service and management.

    One poor waitress run off her feet. Kitchen in chaos. It took 45 mins to tell us that they had run out of one starter and another 30 mins to tell us they had run out of the replacement starter. Manager kindly did not charge us our bar bill as we had to leave to find somewhere else to eat!

    Excellent friendly service. I had a lovely salmon nicoise salad ... beautifully cooked salmon and flavoursome salad. Also a tasty orange creme brulee for dessert. The Terrace has a lovely light and airy atmosphere with great views. Value for money is excellent.
