Michael Caines at ABode Exeter, located on the beautiful Cathedral Green, is Exeter's most fabulous place to dine. Exeter is Michael's home town, and the ABode story started right here. Since 2000, Michael has been serving guests, residents, food critics and friends to his own highly individual and acclaimed style of cuisine, pioneered at nearby two-star Michelin Gidleigh Park utilising the finest ingredients and produce from the West Country. Though Michael has subsequently taken his successful dining concepts to Glasgow, Canterbury, Manchester and, most recently, Chester, the Michael Caines Restaurant at ABode Exeter is always very special.

The Michael Caines dining experience
Start off with a flûte of Champagne in the Michael Caines Champagne and Cocktail Bar while perusing the à la carte menu that changes with the seasons before moving in to the stunning dining room to enjoy your meal at your leisure. If there is anything at all that our staff can do to make your dining experience more enjoyable, please don't hesitate to ask.
"Michael Caines for lunch"
Our restaurant has established a reputation locally for serving the best lunch in the city. The lunch menu changes weekly, depending on what is available and in season, and gives a real taste of our stylish and high quality cuisine at an excellent value price.
Tasting menu with wines
Each week our Executive Chef devises a special tasting menu that includes both dishes from the a la carte as well as special seasonal creations. This is a finely balanced, carefully crafted menu that demonstrates the Michael Caines style of cooking most wonderfully. Our sommeliers match each dish with a specially selected wine to create the ultimate dining experience.
One of the most accessible ways to enjoy and experience Michael Caines at ABode Exeter is to come along from 6-7pm to enjoy our special Early Dining menu, a 2- or 3-course menu that changes weekly. This is probably the best dining deal in Exeter!
