As just about everyone else has said, this little place is excellent. We ate twice here during our weeks stay nearby and wasn't disappointed at all. Each time the bill for the three of us came in under £90 which was for three courses and drinks, very reasonable prices. Food was excellent and we tried a number of different ems... More

We arrived on drizzly night in May. The warm welcome made us forget it inmediately. Super! We had a nice table near the fireplace. The starter, main dish and desert were simply great. The recommended wine was perfect with our dishes. What more can we say, we have had a great time in a great restaurant. A very reliable taxi... More

As we were only in Ilfracombe for 2 nights it was very important to find a good restaurant and boy did we! Relish is... More

We decided to meet with friends at this lovely little restaurant in Ilfracombe. Great food with some tasty wine was served by a young and helpful staff. Only slight disappointment was that the Sea Bass had sold out and the wine of the day had also sold out, however the replacement was just as good. Fresh Crab was amazing, Steak... More
