Good Atmosphere

Met up with friends for lunch - what a great atmosphere. The food was good value, although the drinks were a bit steep.

Have previously had drinks here but as yesterday was so sunny sat outside and had a tasty light lunch. We both had deep fried potato wedges, one with veggie chilli and the other with Stilton, button mushrooms in a cream sauce. They came with a small, very fresh salad and a spicy beetroot salsa. Food was good and hot, clearly... More

Now I will start of with a positive part of the dining - The TAPAS food was lovely and full of flavour and very large portion sizes. The service however was a totally different experience to the food. It was 4pm on a Friday, so not a busy time. Staff did meet n greet and menus were brought to the... More

We were recommended to visit Lilicos, we don't visit Barnstaple often but found the restaurant easily enough. Walking in we were unsure of how the place operated such as table service or order at bar, several staff walked past us without offering any help. We sat ourselves at a table and ordered drinks from the bar we were then given... More

We chose our tapas from the specials menu and from the normal tapas menu all of which were very tasty. We had: Seafood paella, fish cakes, beef kebab, smoked haddock and cajun chicken with a bottle... More

As regular visitors to Barnstaple we have been meaning to eat at Lilicos for a while and finally went in for a family celebratory lunch on 7/2/15. The restaurant was quite busy at around 2.30pm (we hadn't booked in advance but fortunately there was a table available), but the atmosphere was relaxing and the staff friendly and efficient. There was... More

Myself and 14 others had our Xmas party here. I had never eaten here so was unsure what to expect, I wasn't disappointed though, The food, wine and service were excellent. I would like to go through it all with you but there was so many different dishes I'd be here all day!!! The mini desserts ending the meal was... More

I'm very surprised to see negative reviews on here, but all I can speak from is my own experience. I've eaten here 3 or 4 times for lunch, and have almost always gone for the tapas. They used to have a very cheap deal on, but now it's still reasonably priced. The tapas options are interesting and well done. We... More

The food what a joke the over priced drinks the food what a joke they use "boil in the bag" products and pass it off as "cooked on site" don't bother. The "live shows" does not even intrest me. ZzZz oh yea back to drinks £8 for 3 cups of coffee the ones u get in the B&B'S total joke.
