‘A place to share simple and honest food’? Well, Paesan at Exmouth Market sure doesn’t let on that there is something very extraordinary about it. Serving you true Italian peasant dishes, lovingly prepared and created, and in a most inspiring place. Paesan was nominated for Restaurant & Bar Awards as well as shortlisted for menu of the year, doing it all with the simple yet magic formula of aperitivo, small plates, pasta, carne and pesce.
Good atmosphere and excellent food. Unfortunately the restaurant was a bit understaffed or just not as organised as it should be. The waiting time for the drinks , starters, mains was took so long. Other than that it was a good experience.
food was very average and it was really noisy! Wouldn't go again.
Slow service, took almost 90min for starter&main. Quality was average.
