About On The Waterfront
Open for lunch and dinner, we are one of Exeter’s most popular places to eat. We are proud to serve only top quality, locally sourced food in our restaurant. We are also a Cask Marque accredited pub, which means you can be certain of a good pint of local ale as well as a selection of more widely known beers and lagers.
We are family friendly and boast a dining area for parties of up to 100 guests. Our heated terrace is perfectly located on Exeter’s picturesque quayside and is the ideal place to watch the world go by whether you are eating or drinking.
Lovely cool place to eat. I think a little expensive but a great variety.
The pizza we ordered was dry and tasteless!
Great service, lovely mesl
Booked for our anniversary, had a lovely meal didn't wait long either. Staff were lovely too.
We were informed by the waitress that there was a 40 minute wait on food . We shared a pizza which was so difficult to cut As the base was rock solid .
Service was absolutely amazing! Food was also amazing! For the 24 people it went great and I would recommend it to anyone! So friendly and nice
As always the food was lovely, couldn't fault it but sadly again the service was very slow.
Very quick service on Fathers day. Lovely meal
We were really disappointed with the experience here. The food was reasonable except the nachos which were overpriced for what they were and not very nice. I was quite upset with a comment I heard from a ?head waitress. She pulled a junior waitress aside and said "have we killed anyone yet ?" I don't think the junior waitress knew what she was saying and so she further added to this saying "no seriously have we killed anyone with food allergies yet". We had been a table who had declared food allergies and I was aware of another table who had done this. I found it disgusting to talk like this whether a joke or not seeing as people have died in restaurants from food allergies and we have a lot of anxiety about our own sons allergies. We decided to leave after our mains after this.
Great time! See you again soon.
We were seated in the restaurant but after nearly 20min no one had come to take our order so I had to go and find someone we were worried because it table was needed after our booking. 2 of our drinks w were wrong but this was quickly changed. The food arrived and it was lovely would definitely come again
Very disappointed. Slow bar staff, Bland food. They’ve lost their way and are attracting custom on their past reputation, not their current service. After many years of going there, I won’t be going back for some time . . .
We had such a lovely meal at the waterfront, everything about the meal and service was excellent. Food didn’t take long at all to come out and the staff and while atmosphere was very positive and relaxed. I can’t wait to visit again!
Great meal. Attentive staff and scrumpy food.
Fantastic food and fantastic service. Would highly recommend.
We were celebrating 2 birthdays and you put up a lovely banner. It the birthday girls feel very special! Thank you for making our evening very special!
Had a fun night, friendly waiter
Thank you very much! We hope to see you back again soon.
We haven’t been lucky with the stuff, I’m sure and I hope that was just a bad day and it’s different at other times. Very good pizzas Not so good tapas. Brilliant and tasty homemade lemonade.
Thank you for leaving us a review, though I'm really sorry to hear you were so disappointed by the service you received. Please email us on [email protected] with more details so I can look into this further and schedule refresher training sessions where necessary.
The food was OK, we ordered both pizzas, one of which was gluten free, that was fine but I ordered a salad, which was overpriced and also pretty gritty and gave me a stomach ache, If I return I'd only order pizzas
I'm sorry to hear you were disappointed by the salad on your recent visit - please always let a member of staff know about any issues at the time so we can look to improve the situation for you. We hope to see you back again soon for a better experience.
Great restaurant with wonderful food. The only down side was once it began getting busier at around 9pm it becomes very loud and difficult to hear the person opposite you.
Thank you so much for this lovely review, though I'm sorry about the noise levels during busy periods. We do all we can to keep this to a minimum where possible. We hope to see you back again soon.
Really enjoyable evening and the food was very good.
Thank you so much, we hope to see you back again soon.
Excellent service food arrived all at the same time Very good thank you
Thank you so much! We hope to see you back again soon!
Pizza base a bit floppy (it is all about the base). Service for drinks a bit slow, booked a table but was put in the ‘couples’ area rather than the main area. This was not selectable when booking. Always thought you were a ‘bit expensive’.
Thank you for leaving us a review. Any tables of 6 or less people are sat in our Boat Room restaurant - this is not just for couples, but is for smaller parties. If you would like to sit in the bar area then these tables are all first come first served and you are welcome to grab one of these when you arrive and let us know you wouldn't require the table we had booked for you, though this is bar service and not table service. As an independent restaurant who aim to source as much of our food and drink as locally as possible we do have to ensure our prices are covering the top quality food and drink you receive, I hope you are able to visit us again soon for a better experience, and to perhaps try a pizza with our new pizza dough we have just started using.
