We had a booking for 20.30 but phoned ahead when our journey involved delays. We finally arrived at 21.50 but were greeted warmly and made to feel completely welcome. Excellent service and delicious food. Top marks from us.

We walked in here on a Saturday evening without a reservation and luckily got the last table available. Lot's of others came in after us and were disappointed so I would advise booking. The food was good and staff friendly and polite. Nice relaxed atmosphere and bar. T

The cocktails are always really nice too - the cosmos are amazing! Nice restaurant to visit for a special occasion or a... More

We've lived in Ilfracombe for just over a year and have had the pleasure of eating at the terrace on a good few occasions. The new owners Clive and Dawn have taken over a successful business and respectfully improved the food offer over the last season. The food is great, clearly freshly cooked and well conceived. The service is always... More

Spotted this place whilst we were staying in Ilfracombe and decided to pop in. We hadn't booked but managed to get a table. Lovely place and the food was delicious. Most of the food was as good as any tapas I've had in Spain! Service was great too. We'll definitely be back!

Excellent meal "Again" at the Terrace. All of our food was fantastic, well cooked and tasty. It's not everywhere you get so much to choose from when you're vegetarian. The staff are very friendly and this completes a thoroughly enjoyable evening. I would comfortably recommend this restaurant to anyone :)

In Ilfracombe on holiday and we booked for 12 people. Great setting, nice attentive staff and good service. We went for the eat as much as you like tapas. The food was really good, tasty and presented well. We were completely full and were even allowed a doggy bag!
