Perfectly located within the Cathedral Close, this ultrachic restaurant is in the centuries-old building that is now the ABode Exeter. Master chef Michael Caines oversees the kitchen, which serves eclectic contemporary fare like glazed Creedy Carver duck breast with honey swede puree and orange confit, or Brixham sea bass with stir-fried shiitake mushrooms, bean sprouts, and lemongrass sauce. Fixed-price lunch and early evening menus are more affordable. Alternatively,
the more relaxed (and moderately priced) Café-Bar & Grill next door, under the same ownership, serves meals all day, including good fixed-price lunches.
