A warm welcome, excellent food, attentive service and a relaxing environment. We really enjoyed our visit on 11 August and we'll be sure to return. Excellent.

Dined here on Friday night with my partner and we decided to share starters, I had the crab tacos and she had the gruyere croquettes, both of which were amazing! We ordered a very nice and reasonably priced bottle of red and waited for our amazing pizzas to arrive! Relish is a great intimate little restaurant which delivers at the... More

Lovely restaurant with a great choice of dishes. Meet and greet by Kate is always welcoming and dishes created by Sarah mouth watering. We shared a seafood platter as a starter although it was on the mains and it was Superb. Main course steak was cooked to perfection and the bottle of prosecco was served at the right temperature with... More

Just as good as all the reviews say. Kate is very welcoming host and the food first class. The scallops for starters and the dressed lundy crab for mains were superb and the prices very reasonable. Pleasure to find somewhere that provides great food at decent prices rather than being ripped off. Well done

The food is good - hence you should book Thursdays onwards - and the welcome was friendly. No matter what time you book for you can take your time over your food and chat rather than be hustled out for the next cover. Slightly quirky interior just adds to the homely feel of the place and expect good sized portions....... More

This was our favourite restaurant in Ilfracombe. We had taken the precaution of pre-booking which was as well as the restaurant seemed to be booked up every night. The menu was very varied with a really good choice of starters, mains & deserts. The food was freshly cooked and served delightfully hot! Super fish well cooked. The staff were very... More

Am a local and always looking for good food. Managed to get a table tonight and was not disappointed. Small place and tables just nicely positioned. Low lighting and atmosphere lovely. Was offered drinks straight away and felt looked after . We had cray fish to start and lobster special for main. Can only say the food was amazing. Highly... More

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
