Dine on the unique, floating, River Exe Cafe

Where’s the best environment to eat seafood? We’d have to argue that floating on the water’s a pretty good contender.

A stay in Exmouth offers many memorable experiences, but a trip to The River Exe Café has to be one of the most unique.

Anchored in the middle of the River Exe Estuary, a visit to this eatery is more than just a meal, it’s a mini adventure – perfect for both young and old.

The restaurant’s season runs from April 1st to the 30th of September.
