Puerto Lounge is in a great spot on the River Exe by the footbridge in the historic Quayside area, 10 minute walk from the city centre. We’ve a fantastic big terrace overlooking the River, just perfect for watching the world – and its kayaks, pedalos and swans – go by. Our inside isn’t too shabby either; a big, funky open plan light and airy industrial space stretching right across our handsome historic building, with a surprising amount of nooks and crannies to call your own. We serve a great range of food and drinks (including full kids, gluten free and vegan menus) in this really relaxed, welcoming atmosphere with that cosy café essential – a big cloud of dangly tassel-y lightshades by the door. Lovely.

What is it that people love best about Lounging? Is it the food? The cocktails? Our lovely staff? Or the photo of the old boy on an airbed in his pants? Let’s see, shall we?
