A floating restaurant in the middle of the River Exe! Wonderful views. Fantastic seafood (and non-seafood options). Booking essential via their website, make sure you book at least a month in advance as they have limited places and it's popular! When you book a table you also book a water taxi from Exmouth. Look out for seals on the way to the cafe. Definitely worth a visit
