We went to Clarets for dinner during our stay in the beautiful town of Ilfracombe. The food was excellent, the staff very friendly and the final bill was less than expected for such a lovely evening. I do recommend booking in advance as this little restaurant can be fully booked, especially at weekends.

I strongly recommend this restaurant to anybody who is intending to visit Ilfracombe. An excellent balance of friendly and efficient service by this family run business. I would definitely visit again.

I chose this restaurant on the strength of the trip advisor reviews and it was a good decision. The best food we've had for a long time, fresh fish cooked to perfection along with excellent wine and followed by dreamy treacle tart with clotted cream and custard. Definitely one of the best reasons to visit Ilfracombe

Had looked at recommendations on Eat out in Devon and read all the reports and Clarets certainly did not disappoint. Only one issue it wasn't open more nights for us to indulge ourselves again. Excellent menu choice offering a wide range of interetsing dishes not just the norm. The staff were friendly and attentive without being intrusive. The service was excellent especially as they had a party upstairs and a group of 10 downstairs. We would recommend Clarets to anyone who wants to dine out in a cosy environment and eat an array of excellent dishes
