“Finest dining in Ilfracombe”
Reviewed May 10, 2013

Really great fine dining-and there is some stiff competition in Ilfracombe. We have tried a good number of the higher rated restuarents in the town but this really did stand out. Decor is fine, service is fien, it's the food which will impress.

“Superb Food!”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

We had a meal at Seventy One on a Saturday night and my partner and I both agree that this was the best restaurant in Ilfracombe. The portion sizes were perfect, not too much, not too little and the quality of the food was fantastic. The staff were friendly and welcoming and the atmosphere was cosy and romantic. We would recommend Seventy One to anyone who is looking for a quality meal and a great atmosphere, its perfect for couples. We will be back soon!

“Lovely food with a fixed price menu”
Reviewed April 10, 2013

This is our third visit to this restaurant and the food was very good again. There is a varied choice of about six starters, mains and puddings with specials also available. We all enjoyed every course and we all chose different. The hake was delicious and so well prepared. We have always gone as a family with older children, though mostly the other diners are couples. The staff are friendly and attentive. Will be going back.

“Great food, great service - a gem of a restaurant!”
Reviewed December 16, 2012

Trying to find a restaurant in Ilfracombe to accommodate 14 people for Sunday lunch in December wasn't easy....and then I happened upon the Seventy One website. Food looked great so I thought I'd book it. Turns out the restaurant doesn't normally open on Sunday lunchtimes, however as we were a large party they made a special dispensation for us. And are we glad the did!

The restaurant is small, but welcoming, warm and friendly. Jane looked after us as if we were guests shed invited herself. The food was just wonderful.....every single course. And the prosecco was just yummy too.

I can't recommend this place enough. Give it a try!

“Amazing!”
Reviewed December 10, 2012

Lovely food, great staff and just amazing overall! Prosecco is amazing and reasonably priced. Would recommend this restaurant every day of the week. My food was amazing but had food envy over everyone else's dishes! Yum.
