“So good!”
Reviewed August 11, 2014

The food was delicious and very fresh. It is a very busy restaurant so the service was a little slow. It was a very hot evening when we went and were offered seats on the terrace but the terrace is a smoking area so there were people getting a bit upset as they were eating next to people smoking, it's worth knowing as if you're not a smoker its pretty unpleasant

“Excellent Food”
Reviewed August 8, 2014 via mobile

An excellent, reasonably priced seafood restaurant. Quality food, well-prepared. A relaxing and unpretentious place. This was the best restaurant we've been to in Ilfracombe.

Recommended for anyone who likes food and gets fed up of shelling out on hyped up, bad quality restaurants where you come away disappointed. Espresso was that rarity - a restaurant that provides a meal worth going out for.

“great outside wine bar”
Reviewed August 4, 2014

we were recomended this restaurant by the manager of la gendarmerie, but were unable to reserve a table due to them being very busy on the night requested, we did however get to enjoy a nice bottle of wine & some nibbles the following afrternoon in the sunshine, and was very dissapointed we diddnt get to try the full menu, hopefully next time!

“Lovely atmosphere”
Reviewed July 28, 2014 via mobile

Popped in here twice over the weekend just gone. Nice cosy corner of Ilfracombe. Pleasant staff nice wine and good atmosphere. It's a shame it doesn't stay open much later but that's probably because I didn't want to move

“Good Food on the Beach”
Reviewed July 26, 2014

We wanted to eat close to our B+B. Reviewed some of the restaurants in the area and chose Espresso because of the fresh seafood. We were pleased with the food and service. We would go back there on our next visit.
