Great Place to eat and relax

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

Fantastic friendly service without being pushy or in your face. Food was amazing and really quick service. A beautifully designed little restaurant. Perfect for our first evening away from the children. Glad we booked in advance though as always fully booked and understandably so

Had a lovely evening meal. Nice setting and attentive service without being overbearing. Very good food. The only issue stopping a 5 star review was the liquor coffee was made with squirty cream which was surprising given the standard of everything else. Learn to make a good Irish coffee and everything would be spot on.

Me and my partner visited on a Monday evening, and everything we ate was perfect. It's the best meal I think I've ever had, and the service was top notch too. I'd highly recommend to anyone in the area, and will definitely be visiting again. The pheasant bugger was the tastiest burger I've ever had. Brilliant place.

Dont miss this restaurant if you visit Ilfracombe. Exceptionally friendly staff, superb food (especially fish ). Make sure you book well in advance we just managed to get a table early in evening on 9th June 2015 due to cancellation. Would make a special trip to Ilfracombe if only to go to Relish.

Bistro food is usually seen as slightly different from what one would call run of the mill. This eatery is no exception. From the moment we telephoned to reserve a table to the service and friendliness from very attentive staff we were made to feel special. The menu was so varied with an excellent selection of seafood choices available besides... More
