We are great fans of tapas and this restaurant didn't disappoint. Eat as much as you like for £14.95 and a nice jug of sangria (extra) to wash the authentic food down. The service was swift and very friendly with a particularly nice and efficient owner.

First time for us at The Terrace. Hadn't booked as we'd spent the day on Lundy & didn't know how we'd feel when we got back. Well, we were HUNGRY. Managed to get a table even though they were pretty well booked. Thanks for squeezing us in. We had the early bird eat as much as you want at £12.95... More

Really good service and excellent food, still yearning for another quesadilla. Good value for money and excellent service, we only managed two courses of the 'eat as much as you can' menu but would have liked more. We are vegetarian and there was plenty of choice for us plus the manager said they could happily accommodate our vegan friends

Great find! Lovely selection of tradition and modern Tapas. The atmosphere was super, although we ate early and therefore there were a few young families with young children, so it was quite noisy. Staff were extremely helpful and did not keep asking if every thing was ok. Great food in a central location. The MEAT platter is a must!!

We found this restaurant by chance as we've never really rated Ilfracombe. However we were desperate for something different and we weren't disappointed. We are all vegetarian so there was plenty of choice which made a refreshing change. We all opted for the early bird all you can eat tapas. The food was beautiful, if I didn't feel absolutely stuffed... More

We chanced across this restaurant and were glad we did. They do a really affordable menu, £14.95 for all you can eat buffet along with a salad. Good food, friendly staff and not rushed at all. Would recommend to anybody.

Just visited the terrace for a meal with my girlfriend. We chose this place based on other people's reviews and were not disappointed. The food was beautiful, the staff friendly and the price was a bargain since we ordered off the all you can eat menu and left with our stomachs full.

In food terms, you could be forgiven for thinking Illfracombe was one big chip shop, however, if you look beyond the salt and vinegar you can find a couple of fine eateries - The Terrace Tapas is one of these. We arrived on a busy friday night and received a warm welcome from the owner, after being shown to our... More

Had a great meal here on a busy Saturday night. We arrived in Ilfracombe late and the chef was about to close the kitchen, but we were never rushed and the food was of excellent quality. Chef obviously uses good-quality ingredients as even the simple dishes were delicious - highly recommend the chorizo in red wine. Good choice of drinks... More
