“Blown away”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 10, 2013 via mobile

Me and my partner were looking for a place to eat and stumbled across this place. As we walked in we were greeted very politely by the chef and one waitress who were very friendly xx normally u don't expect much from a chippy but the food was exceptional full of flavour and cooked to order so was very fresh and hot xxx we were only in ilfracombe for the one night and am very glad we found tis restaurant xx I am going back for one more night at the end of the month and without question I will be visiting here again xxxx superb *****

“Lovely chippy”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 28, 2013

A lovely spotless chip shop /restaurant with quality tasty produce. A bit pricy but worth it. The views are amazing staff friendly and quick service. We had the fisher mans combo fish chips mushy peas and a drink for £7.45.

“Fish 'n' chips by the sea? Compulsory”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 24, 2013

Good food, friendly staff & a fantastic view of Hillsborough Point (I think it is called). Huge windows, & mirrored all around, so even those facing inward can share the panorama.
I had the Fisherman's Combo - a taste of everything!
Mrs. & lad had the Cod fillet, which was huge.
Our finicky little girl was even catered for with chicken nuggets, as she never eats propper food or tries anything local.
Generous portions & reasonable prices, well worth a visit.
