    Dine with friends at pizza restaurants in Exeter

    The casual dining opportunities at restaurants in Exeter are on of the city's culinary highlights, and pizza is at the top of the list. When you book tables at pizzerias in Topsham or the city centre, you'll discover authentic pizzas cooked in wood-fired ovens. And you'll also find no end to the toppings available. From vegan butternut squash pizzas and slow roasted pork to crispy duck and locally caught crayfish, Exeter's pizza restaurants know how to innovate and respect Italian traditions at the same time. There's no better way to get together with friends or get ready for a night of dancing.

    Exeter's restaurants showcase Devon's excellent beef and pork

    Meat is also well and truly on the agenda at restaurants in Exeter. That's not a surprise given the city's location. Devon has a legendary meat industry, and diners are starting to discover all of its charms. For instance, the county's Ruby Red Beef breeds are finding a new audience, lured by their grass-fed, slow developing lifestyles and super tender, flavoursome meat. Exeter's steakhouse restaurants know precisely how to extract those flavours and couple prime steak with sauces, sides and vintage wines. And beyond beef, you'll find Devon's own pasty recipes and hog's pudding - a spicy pork sausage. It's heaven for carnivores who love to sample local produce at its best.

    Then there's Devon's seafood. With a long coastline along the English Channel, it's a county that harvests a rich bounty from the ocean, including some of the most succulent, meaty crabs you will ever taste. Head to Exeter's restaurants to experience world-class crab and lobster sandwiches, try locally harvested oysters, mussels, calamari and much more. There's even a thriving local caviar industry, and it's definitely an option at upscale restaurants in Exeter. So if you have a passion for the fruits of the sea, find the ideal dining spot on Quandoo.

    Enjoy British favourites at restaurants in Exeter

    Moving back to traditional British fare, Exeter's restaurants selection also features some great gastro-pubs and brasseries where national favourites can be found. If you need a first-class roast dinner with a choice of meats and all the trimmings, you know where to go. There are upmarket bistros which take pub favourites like fish and chips, cottage pie, and Welsh rarebit, and enhance them with their own unique skills. Then there are gourmet British eateries which cater for special occasions, whipping up cod loin, smoke mackerel starters and 21 day steaks on demand. These places create a wonderful fusion of local ingredients, British recipes and global skill, adding new elements to familiar dishes.
