Devonshire Spain!

High quality Tapas, imaginative Gin selection and excellent wines. The staff were helpful and confident - very easy with such quality on offer. Do not think that you will get small portions and you are just getting a snack, far from it. A dining experience closer to Barcelona than Barnstable! We... read more

Really delicious food and fab gin selection. The family and friends section of the menu offered lots of choice at a reasonable price. Went back a 2nd night just for food and each of us had a different cocktail. These were all yummy. must try the prawns and try the bath tub gin. Highly recommend.

Visited here last night with a group of 11 of us. We received a warm welcome from the owner. We ate from the family and friends menu and it was perfect. Food was great, and arrived in timely intervals. We even managed the chocolate fondue for desert.. Would definitely visit and recommend to others.

This is a must for our family when we holiday in Ilfracombe and we are Veggies! We love being able to select dishes again and again until we are full and there's no rush to finish, staff are always friendly and give you enough attention without crowding you - a great experience whenever we have visited !

Our first visit this year to enjoy the new decor & menu at this great restaurant. Still family friendly but with a more grown up atmosphere. It was a shame that the carefully created ambience was spoilt by a nearby rude table who insisted on opening the blinds so we could all enjoy the nearby buildings & later, the blinding... More

We had the £17.50 menu which included meat and salad starter and 6 tapas dishes. Really good value for money in a relaxed environment. Would definitely recommend.the wine a bit expensive.

Myself my husband and 10 year old daughter ate here tonight, we were welcomed by nice friendly staff. The decor is very nice and tables are laid out well, as it was busy you still felt some privacy. We enjoyed the food however ordered too much and were very full so couldn't try the toberlone pudding!

On our visit to Terrace Tapas & Wine Bar we found the food was good and staff was very welcoming and attentive, perhaps even overly so, as someone was checking on us every 5 mins asking if wan't anything else etc. We definitely couldn't complain about lack of attention! :) However, strangely, when we payed the bill, nobody came to...
