I had the Exmoor steak here asked for medium rare and got it medium rare and it was absolutely fantastic would highly recommend this restaurant wasn't open very much when we arrived so booking early is advisable to avoid disappointment.

We had a brilliant evening at Relish: we had made a reservation via the phone earlier in the day and... More

We visited Relish whilst staying in Ilfracombe last week and were so glad we did! The welcome we were given was so friendly and the atmosphere was cosy and relaxed. The food was absolutely delicious Relish should definitely be visited if you are staying in Ilfracombe. As it is so popular booking is essential.

Kate and her partner present the delicious food and wine with care and attention to detail. The ambience is relaxed and inviting. Booking is essential as the restaurant is very popular but is not open everynight

Once again we had a wonderful dining experience at Relish. From the moment you walk in you are made to feel so welcome. It has just the right atmosphere for us - cosy with a bit of sophistication. The service is attentive, but in no way intrusive. Nothing is too much trouble. The food is excellent- beautifully presented and very... More
