Having had a wonderful experience at Relish in June 2014 we returned there with my wife's daughter & her husband in the hope that they would enjoy the same experience as we had previously. Of the 4 main courses 3 resulted in empty plates,the exception being my medium-rare rib-eye steak. The first one went back to the kitchen as it... More

When we visited, the restaurant was busy but the service was excellent and friendly. My wife had scallops followed by lobster. Both were fresh and tasted delicious. I had chicken wings as a starter which were spicy and served with a lovely blue cheese sauce. My main course was baked cod, which melted in the mouth. We had an excellent... More

We had such a lovely night at Relish. We had been last summer when we were in Ilfracombe and made sure to book in when we knew we were going to be back for the weekend. We shared a mix of things, chicken wings, goats cheese salad, the sea bass and a chorizo pizza and all of them were great.... More

This was our second visit to Ilfracombe which has noticeably improved since our last stay. We visited Relish again and were not disappointed. On a cold a blustery night a warm welcome awaited us and we chose to sit next to the fireplace. We enjoyed the French Onion Soup and the Pear and Proscuitto Salad followed by the Game Pie... More

Having read all the tremendous reviews here on Trip Advisor, we booked a table for three last Saturday. I wish we hadn't! The scallops were not available and so two of us chose the crab tacos. When they arrived they were basically two small circles cut out of a tortilla wrap, cold, with a teaspoon of crab mayonnaise with a... More

Dear Sparrow02 We are incredibly disappointed with your review of our restaurant and would like to address your points. Unfortunately there are some times of year when certain seafood can be difficult to source and our apologies the fresh scallops were unavailable on this night. We are disappointed that you wouldn’t accept our explanation that soft shell tacos are a... More

Visited Ilfracombe throughout summer 2014. Relish bistro always fully booked. Bought a property here and promised ourselves a good night out there, booked a table online and received prompt confirmation. We enjoyed a perfect celebratory Evening, service was V good, food was beautifully presented and cooked to perfection. Price was very reasonable. Overall a very good dining experience.

A small restaurant on Fore Street, Ilfracombe serving delicious food at a modest price. The menu is restricted which means the food is fresh and served individually. Service was attentive and the atmosphere very pleasant. All in all a must visit in Ilfracombe. Not open every day
