“Never a disappointment”
Reviewed October 5, 2010

We visit Ilfracombe on a reasonably regular basis and Eclectick has become a ‘must visit’ restaurant during every stay. The food is superb and the dining style very Mediterranean, in that you can gently graze your way through an evening without feeling rushed or pressured. I would also say that although not cheap, you get what you pay for, so prices are very reasonable for the quality of fare on offer. The atmosphere is friendly and the level of service is attentive without being overbearing.
I did notice that there are currently a couple of negative reviews on this site and can only say that there is no way those people are referring to the same place, so go there with confidence!

“A magical evening”
Reviewed August 24, 2010

We admit it, Eclectic was our 2nd choice but we were so glad it was full at our first now! Fantastic atmosphere, hosts and food. We always feel welcome in Ilfracombe and when we move here next year, we'll come back.

“lovely hidden bar with a superb view”
Reviewed July 21, 2010

This little bar and restaurant is just superb. It has a lovely little balcony perched up above Fore Street with a lovely view looking down Fore Steet to the harbour. The hosts Chrissie and Geoff are so friendly and make you feel very welcome. The inside of the bar is so tastefully decorated and I would imagine really cosy on a cooler evening with its great fire place. Chrissy's art work can be seen on the walls and this adds to the whole ambience of the place. It can be quite easy to miss so remember to "look up" when in Fore Street!

“A hidden gem”
Reviewed June 1, 2010

We recently discovered Geoff and Chrisy's little hide-away restuarant / bar and love dropping in there. They are great hosts and made us feel very welcome from the first moment we walked in despite the fact that, on that occasion, we didn't even but a drink !

The little patio out front was a lovely place to spend the only warm evening we have had this year and we look forward to the next time.

“Fantastic restaurant, great food & lovely hosts!”
Reviewed November 15, 2009

We recently needed to book a party venue for my husband's 50th birthday. We chose Eclectick on Fore Street, Ilfracombe and what a fantastic choice! The pleasant surroundings of the restaurant & bar were perfect for our party of 20. The buffet food was plentiful and delicious and the hosts Geoff and Chrissie couldn't have been more accommodating and attentive. We had a really wonderful evening, with my husband deciding it was his best birthday ever!
