A fantastic meal and the pizzas I'd highly recommend. We popped in on the off chance that they could sneak us in, luckily we were early enough to be able to get a table for 4. The place is very popular, deservedly so. Service was attentive and effecient. Nothing too much trouble and very friendly. Would definitely recommend. Good value... More

This restaurant gets great TripAdvisor reviews and with good reason. Everything about the place is fantastic! We went to celebrate my Dad's 60th and we certainly made the right choice on what is quite the 'foodie' street in Ilfracombe. The menu focusses on West Country produce, but used in a creative and imaginative way, drawing on flavour influences from around... More

Visited with my husband and our 2 year old granddaughter - had to book as it gets booked up quickly. Lovely warm, welcoming, helpful service. The food was excellent, very fresh fish, beautifully cooked and very reasonable prices for the quality. My husband had half a lobster (£15) and I had a Mediterranean fish stew. They do offer lots if... More

For a starter my wife and I shared the Seafood platter, for mains my wife choose the Lundy Crab which she found to be very good but felt that bread and chips with the meal to be to much. I had...

We started with a sharing seafood player and then Sole and Bass main courses. the food was delicious and well preselected. Expect to pay around £25 a head with win and... More

Booked to eat here on strength of tripadvisor reviews. We were not disappointed, It was excellent, very varied menu, friendly efficient service. The food was really yummy. Sadly we could not go back as we had not booked and they were fully booked for the week we were in Ilfracombe
