At Taste Buds magazine, we offer our readers and subscribers excellent features and reviews of the top places to eat in Devon and beyond. Our county’s cathedral city, and the county town of Devon, Exeter has a long history, and there are many reasons for visiting, including its range of top restaurants. Read on to find out about some of the best eateries in Exeter.

@Angela’s Restaurant

This restaurant is a real find, and you can discover it away from the city centre, serving up fresh fish and seafood. Whether you are after some scallops, turbot, mussels, this eatery is popular for its classic, fresh cooking. @Angela’s also has a wide range of meat options, but with just nine tables and a reputation for being a hidden gem, it would be wise to book ahead.
