We visited Ecklectic on our last night in ilfracombe, having read the reviews on trip advisor. Unique building with a roof terrace and stunning views. Upon arrival we were offered the menus despite arriving half and hour early and given the cocktail menu. The barman spent a considerable amount of time describing and recommending cocktails, we opted for the special... More

We discovered this restaurant on a whim after walking along and noticing the menu. It is hidden away up a set of stairs so I'm very glad we did! The restaurant is small and cosy which makes it feel homely, as do the wonderful staff. The food and cocktails were delightful. There was live music which added to the incredible... More

This splendid restaurant is hidden away above street level and is well worth discovering. My wife and I were welcomed by the friendly owner/host and we asked if we could eat outside. He recommended the garden terrace despite the fact that we would be the only ones up there (fairly quiet Monday evening) and it would mean he had a... More

Great venue, great atmosphere, great food and a very welcoming host. Happily accommodated a late booking for 9 people and served delicious food at a very reasonable price. Thank you for a great evening.

Third visit to this little Gem, again wonderful food , great hosts, and amazing cocktails. Eating there again on Friday. Never had bland food ever here, had two dishes to share, a curry and a prawn dish both full of flavour and spice. Will keep going back.

Something for everyone with wonderful hosts. If you are looking for something unusual with character this should be on you list. You can enjoy the whole evening with pre and post dinner cocktails and live entertainment on some evenings. A great venue.

Our annual University reunion finds us at Eclectrik for the 4th year in a row. Great cocktails followed by great food, with good company, live music and the whole restaurant joining in to a greater or lesser extent. We've not had a bad night here!

This restaurant sits on a terrace just above Fore St in Ilfracombe. We were the only customers on a Tuesday evening in mid May which was a shame as the food and drink were very good. This place has a great cocktail menu and we recommend trying any of them! We shared veggie spring rolls to start and then both... More

We brought our two families here the night before our wedding for an intimate dinner. The owners, Geoff and Chrissie, couldn't have done more to make a special evening such a perfect evening. Decent food, beautiful intimate restaurant, top hosts, thank you guys, it was the perfect start to our wedding.
