We were a mixed-age party of 5 staying nearby for a family weekend and had just a great experience at Pimento's. Service was great; we sat in the downstairs room overlooking the river. Everyone loved what they had. Warm rolls came right away. I 'just'...More

In the 30 years that I have lived in NH, I had never been to Exeter...Pimentos was a gorgeous treat. We had been out on a boat all day, we were grubby and horrible...but treated with dignity and served a crazy gorgeous smorgasbord of appetizers...More

We walked in with no reservations, but that was no problem even with a party booked upstairs! the lower dining area is the place to eat with a great view of the river. The tuna was perfect! I highly recommend this cozy little place!
