Nice Tapas bar

Located across from the town square, this Mediterranean tapas and lounge bar has seperate bar and restaurant sections. The wooden floor is a bit uneven, with the result that some of the tables are unsteady - to be kept in mind if,like me,you tend to move the table while sitting down or standing... read more

My son wanted to try Tapas for his birthday - it was a excellent decision with a wide range of choice of tapas as well as specials. The portions were a good size and very tasty. We will definitely be back. PS Did not know about the restaurant area behind the bar - light and bright - very pleasant

We have drank in the bar many, many times but had never actually eaten here, so we thought it was about time we gave it a go. We took my Gran for her 80th birthday meal, with her Sister. Neither my Gran nor her Sister had had Tapas before, so we explained normally we order 3 each and then share... More

The food was very tasty and hot. Lovely staff and atmosphere. The only fault was they brought our main meals out before the starter but when we mentioned it they quickly sorted it for us.

My husband and I popped out for Dinner last night. We hadn't booked but the waitress was so friendly and polite and found us a table. We had 5 dishes all were delicious and cooked perfectly. Will definitely be back (soon!) Staff were amazing. Reasonably priced too

I went recently with a couple of friends to celebrate a birthday. From start to finish the night was spot on. The staff were great, really friendly and helpful in helping us decide how much tapas to go for! We didn't have to wait long for the food and every dish was delicious. Once we'd stuffed our bellies we moved... More

We love the atmosphere in Lilico's and have visited many times. In our opinion it has established itself as one of Barnstaple's premier eateries. The food is delicious with a great selection. There is regular live music which always adds to an enjoyable evening. Their lunch menu is also excellent which is complemented by the fast and friendly service by... More
