“Great place to eat”
Reviewed November 3, 2012

We were lucky to get into this restaurant due to a cancellation as it is very busy (and open Monday and Tuesday evenings which others weren't in October). Great welcome, food and ambience.

“Great service and excellent food”
Reviewed November 2, 2012 via mobile

We visited on a Friday night and were really impressed with how friendly the staff were. The food was great - we had pizza, burger and the goats cheese tart was excellent.

“Just right”
Reviewed October 28, 2012

We turned up without a reservation and were lucky to get a table (and this on a Monday night in October!). The atmosphere was warm and cosy, the service excellent, the food (pizza) and wine were also great. If we go back to Ilfracombe, we'd definitely go back.

“Warm cosy restaurant with a relaxed atmosphere”
Reviewed October 17, 2012 via mobile

Nice warm welcome by friendly waiting staff
Food was tasty and proportioned well and served hot which a lot of establishments have seemed to forgot about in recent years a little more influence from the New Zealand connection though would have made it perfect

“A real gem of a restaurant”
Reviewed October 11, 2012

We were recommended Relish and it did not disappoint. Great ambiance in a beautiful character building and the food was superb, and good value.
Kate was very welcoming and the service was faultless from start to finish.
We thoroughly enjoyed the freshly prepared food from an interesting menu, with a well selected wine list.
Even on a wet Monday night in October the restaurant was pretty busy, a good sign that Relish will continue to thrive in a town that is not short of good and varied places to eat.
We will certainly return to Relish if in the area again, and wish Kate and her team all the best as it's good to see new and interesting restaurants on the scene.
