Stumbled upon this restaurant while wandering around Ilfracombe. Had the endless tapas for 2 and thoroughly enjoyed every mouthful. The service was excellent and the restaurant had a lovely atmosphere. The chocolate fondue is to die for. Would absolutely recommend the terrace to anyone. Thanks for a wonderful meal.

As strangers in Ilfracombe we were delighted to stumble on this wonderful place. Traditional (and very affordable) tapas with excellent service and great with children. Whilst walking around town we passed a number of restaurants with only a couple of diners, despite it being a Saturday evening. The Terrace, on the other hand, seemed very popular. I particularly enjoyed the... More

From entering to leaving the staff were warm, friendly and speedy. The prawns, paella and garlic bread were highlights.

The owner can be justifiably proud of the Tapas Bar. The reception was genuinely welcoming. The owners knowledge of his wines and beers was outstanding. He recommended a beer which I now seek to buy in Waitrose. The buffer offers great value and we had in excess of 10 dishes. Me and my wife disagreed on the quality of the... More

Last year we had a pre wedding meal in the tappas bar for about 20 guests, we had a fantastic evening with great food and a lovely atmosphere. We returned for our first wedding anniversary last week and it was even better, the restaurant was busy, but we were served promptly by friendly and courteous staff. We chose a variety... More

Food was nice enough but it was spoiled a little bit by their rules about which tapas you could have and how many you could have at a time. There were four of us at the table but for some reason we could only order three different tapas at a time. The result was that we never really had enough... More

One of the best Tapas Bars we've eaten in for some time. It doesn't open on a Monday and it would be safe to book a table rather than call in by chance, I wouldn't want you to miss out. A good selection of choices to suit all tastes and diets. Prices range from £5 upwards or you could choose... More
