Good food, great and personal service, great wine. This summarises pretty much my experience at this place! In term of price, it was not that cheap but I would say this was a good value for money. I think the food there is one of the best in the area, if not the best.

We were in Ilfracombe for a weekend and had no idea where to eat. Looking on here we found this place and decided to try our first ever Tapas experience. The place itself is lovely and the staff were very friendly and attentive - chatty if you wanted to talk but quiet if you were eating/talking to each other. The... More

Interesting food but all so fattening. So much fried food which could be cooked so much better. They could do so much more with Mediterranean dishes. I liked the owner who is trying so hard but didnt think he would be interested in my ideas. Young people I there don't mind the fattening dishes.

We have been visiting the Terrace Tapas for years and have never been disappointed. The food is always top class, staff friendly and efficient and a lovely atmosphere. Ilfracombe is so lucky to have this little piece of Spain nestled in the town and we look forward to it reopening this week. Would advise if possible to book in advance.... More

we have eaten at the Terrace more times than I can remember over the last decade and always love our evenings here every time we came down from Essex. The food is excellent and great value, especially if you order from the 'all you can eat' menu. All the food ( except probably the fries) is freshly cooked on the... More
