Excepto vs Menos

Todo fue genial en la entrevista *excepto* que derramé el café.Everything went great at the interview, except that I spilt the coffee.
Could you please explain why ''menos'' cannot be accepted here? I went through the lesson above,  but for some reason, I'm not seeing if there are sort of exceptions when only ''excepto'' can be accepted, and menos would be incorrect. Thank you in advance

Hola James

If you check the lesson again you'll see a title called:

Excepto que.../ salvo que... = except that...

There we explain that in this case, using "...que..." we don't use menos but excepto que or salvo que 

Saludos
