Went here for meal with colleagues before Xmas as it was highly recommended by a number of people. It was very disappointing, the service was mediocre at best, very slow and the food bland and boring. Not what I expected at all, and sorry to say I won't be back.

This restaurant not only offers a lovely atmosphere but amazing food and lush cocktails. The menu is easily laid out with a good selection of food the hardest bit is trying to decided what not to have has it is so nice. The staff are all very friendly and welcoming they are also attentive without being too much. The cocktails... More

i have spent a few lunch times and many evenings in Lilicos and have always enjoyed it thoroughly. The service is friendly and efficient (even the door staff) and the food is fabulous. I like the live music nights and often pop in for an hour on a Thursday night for a quick drink and a listen. Chris and the... More

Awful food, called tapas but cold whole mushrooms in grey water do not count as tapas to me. Not interesting or exciting food in the slightest. Sat in a cold cellar with bad acoustics.

I felt very welcome the moment I arrived. I didn't wait long for food and was asked how every course was, it was so busy but staff were focused on everyone present. It's a great setting and I can't wait to pass through again and catch a Music night there during dinner.

Revisiting Barnstaple for a long weekend. Did a little research on the internet as my wife is coeliac and it's better to be prepared when looking to eat out. Stumbled across a gluten free blog which mentioned Lilicos and thought we'd give it a go after a day in town. So glad that we did. This is how eating gluten... More

Having not been for a while, me and some friends decided to go for dinner at Lilicos and have a tapas evening between three of us. We started with the garlic bread which was huge and moist between three of us, which was great value considering. We then picked 7 dishes between us, all of outstanding quality and well worth...
