Staying in Ilfracombe for 4 nights and booked this before arriving on the back of the positive trip advisor reviews. Pleased to say the positive reviews were spot on. The restaurant is quite small and intimate with around 25 covers with a small bar area...More

What a great choice this was for our Friday meal. The building had so much character and we were welcomed from the start with excellent service. Food was just perfect, would definitely go again.

Booked a table for 8.00, but received a call at 7.15 to say we were late, so they gave the spot to someone else. We are not best pleased, so make sure you both understand the time booked.

I’ve visited many times when in the area and always take someone new to try the delights and my friends/family never disappointed. Atmosphere great, superb service, food superb. I had crab and would highly recommend- can’t wait to be down there and visit again

It's bizarre that Relish is #2 of 72 restaurants in Ilfracombe. #1 is not even a restaurant, it is a tea room. In our books Relish is definitely #1. We had yet another meal there on Saturday and, again, it lived up to all expectations....More

We chose this place for a family birthday meal, everyone’s food was beautifully cooked, locally caught fish, freshly made desserts, unusual but tasty cocktails, all delicious. Excellent service too. Yes, a little more expensive, but no more than city prices. Advise to book well in...More
