Took us in at short notice having been let down massively by Alfie & the Kaiser. The Terrace gave us great tapas and wine, friendly, accommodating staff, good value and a really pleasurable evening. Tapas was well sourced and had a home made feel. Particularly recommend the cod croquettes, chicken thighs and the broad beans.

Lovely buzz about this restaurant and very popular. Good service and great food. Had the set menu with wide selection shared with a birthday party of four- as much as we could eat. We stuffed ourselves as the choices kept coming. The food was excellent and lived up to all our expectations. Highly recommended to all who enjoy Tapas and... More

I was in Ilfracombe overnight solo on a work trip, and was recommended to come here. I wasn't looking for fine dining (there are plenty of fine dining places on Fore Street) but something easy, simple, tasty and not too much. This tapas bar was perfect, as lots of choice. I kept it simple with patatas bravas (delicious) and a... More

Me and my sister ate here last night, the food was just amazing, the best we've ever had here. The waitresses were all so helpful and friendly despite being very busy. We had the unlimited menu and everything we had was gorgeous-especially the pork skewers and meatballs. We will defiantly be returning again soon. The strawberry frozen cocktails were lush... More

We ordered cocktails and it was 40minutes from arrival to getting a drink. However things improved and the food then arrived in good time and was delicious.

The food was absolutely delicious and I am half Spanish so usually quite hard to impress when talking of Spanish restaurants. The selection of tapas brought a few novelties which were a nice change from the usual middle of the road dishes on offer. The staff was attentive and not overbearing. The decor is lovely and it is obvious that... More

Dined here on a busy Saturday night. Managed to get a last minute table around 8.15pm in the bar area. The 'eat as much tapas as you want' (limited) menu was excellent value at around £15 per person. Last food orders were 10pm, although there seemed to be a little leniency as it was so busy. You can order up... More

Reasonable priced meal (we went for the fixed-priced menu) - lots of choice of dishes and a fairly good vegetarian selection too. It was called 'Endless Tapas' and we were beaten after 3 rounds! We went with a party of 6 and the service was good. Have visited the Terrace before (last Summer) and it was just as good as... More
