We prove some instances of Wilkie's conjecture on the density of rational points on sets definable in the real exponential field. In particular, we prove that this conjecture is true for surfaces defined using restricted exponentiation, and that it is true for a general Pfaffian surface provided that the surface admits a certain kind of parameterization.
