There are a lot of food options in Ilfracombe especially in Fore Street but Relish is stand out. The food was excellent, the service was friendly and attentive and the menu had a nice selection without being too long. I had the sea bass and it was absolutely delicious. Make sure you book - this place gets full quickly!

Relish was selected by us after reading Trip Advisor reviews. We phoned and booked a table, it was a good job we did as when we arrived we found that it was fully booked for the evening having just the one sitting each evening. Relish is owned and run by two very pleasant young ladies from New Zealand, one running... More

Our second visit here in 2 weeks and yet again we enjoyed a wonderful evening. Lovely seafood but other choices if that's not your thing. It's great having this gem if a restaurant pretty much on our doorstep. Very friendly helpful staff make it a brilliant evening out.

Whilst on holiday in Ilfracombe i wanted to visit a restaurant that was good and had lovely fresh local ingredients and we found this restaurant on the main street in Ilfracombe. It was shut for the first couple of nights we were here so we phoned to book a table for the night it re-opened ( the town has strange... More

My husband and I visited Relish while on holiday in Ilfracombe - I had read about this place on the internet, read reviews and checked out their website beforehand. All looked good so when we arrived in Ilfracombe we picked a night to go and booked in advance - just as well we did - they ended up being fully... More

we ended up at this restaurant by chance as the nearby tapas bar we were aiming to go to was closed for some reason but we were not disappointed! Nice choice of food and everything we had was lovely and the lady from New Zealand who served us (the owner?) was also very lovely!

A snug, comfortable place. A definite antipodean flavour in the accent of the owner and in some of the courses on the menu...and selection of New Zealand wines. We actually went for a white Rioja which was excellent. A good selection of starters with the stuffed dates a standout. Duck breast was pink and tender whilst the fish dishes feature... More
