Rockfish, Exeter Quay

Freshly caught fish, a sustainable ethos and quayside setting quay make this family and pet-friendly restaurant on Exeter's quayside a must for seafood lovers.

Read our review of Rockfish, Exeter Quay

Rockfish and Mitch Tonks are bywords for quality fish in Devon. Just one of seafood guru Mitch Tonk’s shoal of Rockfish’s around the county, this cool canal-side restaurant has a beach-shack vibe by day, and by night becomes a glowing amber jewel. So good for families, couples and work meetings alike.

Muddy loves the comfy lagoon-blue bench seating, the bustling view of the galley kitchen and most of all, the fabulous daily-changing range of freshly-caught Brixham fishies.

Kids will love to watch the river life literally swanning by and the free Ocean Protector Pack with stickers, pencils and ocean-based colouring activities to keep them busy.

Highlights include their own team-selected Xarello wine; bottomless chips; a carafe of free still or sparkling water with your meal; sliding doors out onto the quay which peel back in summer; fresh fish caught locally available daily and a great knowledge of what’s on the menu from the waiting staff. And it’s dog-friendly provided you abide by the paws on the floor policy.

It’s just a fifteen minute jaunt downhill from the city centre, or park in one of two car parks opposite the piazza. The quayside location is perfectly placed for walks or bike-rides along the flat, boat and paddle-board hire and under-arch shopping across the river.
