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.

My wife and I were looking for an early season short break before the kids Easter holidays started. We wanted to go somewhere scenic yet quiet and relaxing. Wanting to visit gardens in Devon we chose Ilfracombe as it is coastal and yet close to RHS Rosemoor. We stayed at the self-catering apartment above Eclectick restaurant. The apartment is outstanding.... More

A cosy bijou restaurant. The cocktails were delicious. Unfortunately some starters were very salty and when asked if a bottle of water could be supplied to the table, it made a belated appearance and we were asked if two glasses would be sufficient rather than four glasses for four people. The main courses were beautifully cooked. However, at £17 for... More

... That's all you need to say about it. Don't go if you either don't like or are allergic to cats because their cats have the run of the place although, I believe, they are encouraged not ti go into or stay in the kitcheb. Food to die for, service excellent, surroubdings and view terrific. Take yourselves up the steps... More
