Hele Billy's Bar & Restaurant

26 Watermouth Rd, Ilfracombe EX34 9QY, UK – 01271 866488

Excellent customer service. Food was outstanding. Reasonably priced. Great range of drinks. Worth booking which can be done online although when we booked it hadn't gone though to the staff, but wasn't a problem they got us seated straight away. As I started the post, excellent customer service, smiles all round.

We went with a party of six and had a fantastic time. All the food was absolutely amazing. Will definitely be going back

The Quay Restaurant

11 The Quay, Ilfracombe EX34 9EQ, UK – 01271 868090

Wonderful restaurant! Staff were incredibly welcoming, the venue is beautiful and well laid out and the food was incredible. The pricing was very reasonable for the quality of food served. The sea bass was a winning choice as was the chocolate fondant for dessert. Can't go wrong booking in here for a meal!

Great view to sit out or near exit for quay view. Excellent service from warm and friendly staffs. Very kind thought of chef to wrap the lemon with gauze for fresh oyster (in photo). Tasty fish of the day with mussels. Devonshire cream tea can be found here. Love their scones with cream & strawberry jam, soft yet not too sweet.

63 Fore St, Ilfracombe EX34 9ED, UK – 01271 865339

Fine dining experience with great service

My girlfriend and I ate here on Saturday night and the food was some of the best I have ever eaten! You could tell how fresh it was and how much thought and effort had gone in to making it. Service was also top notch! A great restaurant that I can't recommend highly enough, thank you for a great evening.

Chinese Restaurants serving the Ilfracombe area

Emperors Court

111 High St, Ilfracombe EX34 9QB, UK – 01271 863896

On holiday in Ilfracombe, ordered a meal to collect, so we could have a lovely stroll back to our holiday cottage, to enjoy our meal, we were not disappointed , the food here is absolutely delicious! Far and away the best crispy duck I have ever tasted, if you visit Ilfracombe and don’t visit this restaurant you are seriously missing out!

A long wait for takeaway (because it's cooked fresh ) but well worth the wait. Delicious food. looking forward to trying other things on the menu.

Bamboo Palace

27 St James Pl, Ilfracombe EX34 9BJ, UK – 01271 866439

Very fast service and reasonable prices. A very good takeaway

Good food and service. Price is average for a chinese. I've ordered from a here quite a few times and it's always been a decent quality. Best chinese in ilfracombe. Will be going back soon.

Blacksands Bistro

3 St James Pl, Ilfracombe EX34 9BH, UK – 01271 523296

Lovely cool place. And the food was amazing! Not many places I feel so relaxed and yet the food quality, flavour and presentation is second to none. Only 2 people serving on the day, but never had to wait to be served. Well done!

Brilliant bistro, offering excellent food and drinks (cocktails are good). Staff friendly, 50/50 mix of indoor and outdoor seating. Would be 4.5 stars really, prices just seemed a little too high considering what you get compared to other places. But ultimately well worth a visit and repeated visits too. Yet to try a film night so waiting for them to come back!

Indian Restaurants and takeaways in or near Ilfracombe

Bengal Spice

36 Greenclose Rd, Ilfracombe EX34 8BT, UK – 01271 862010

Have used this Indian take away for years and honestly imo its the best in the area. We normally collect but you can sit in and if your in luck they will deliver. Tasty with good portion sizes. Not expensive . 100% recommend.

3 of us went on New Year's Eve. Food excellent and staff were attentive and polite. Also good value. Decor a little tired if you are picky but that didn't matter to us. Will def return.

Tandoori Night Restaurant

13-14 High St, Ilfracombe EX34 9DF, UK – 01271 866453

Decent enough curry, friendly staff, reasonably priced 👍

Indian Cuisine Restaurant & Takeaway

Malborough Rd, Ilfracombe EX34 8PF, UK – 01271 879792

I went in on a whim, with a party of 4, it wasn't busy ( but there was a football game on, world cup). We were met by friendly staff, not rushed into ordering. We were made aware of the banquet menu, the food arrived in good time and hot, the flavour was some of the best I've tasted, not swimming in sauce like others. Throughout the meal we were attended with courtesy. Well worth the money.

Spontaneously stopped in for a curry with 2 friends and was pleasantly surprised. Food was very fresh and proper delicious. Very well priced too with great service from the waiter. Would highly recommend.

Giovanni & Luca

Searock Apartments, Wilder Rd, Ilfracombe EX34 9AR, UK – 01271 879394

Went here yesterday for the first time. Beautiful little Italian tucked away in Ilfracombe, for the quality, the price is perfect, staff are super friendly and you really feel like you're at home! Only down side is the toilets didn't flush properly and took ages to refill! Other than that it was a amazing! Definitely coming here again!

Vegetarian or Vegan Restaurants

Grassroots Vegetarian Cafe

97 High St, Ilfracombe EX34 9NH, UK – 01271 867574

Amazing vegetarian restaurant and the staff is very good and cordial. It's a sunflower themed restaurant and with various options both for lunch dinner and just a coffee. We had been during dinner hours were we found lot of people and Frankly didn't expect that in Ilfracombe. The soup salad and the main course was amazing and the desert was heavenly.

I would strongly recommend this veggie restaurant, even if you're not a vegetarian. The food is really fresh and tasty and there's lots of it. I had the cheese and tomato frittata which was divine with the best salad ever. The restaurant is brightly decorated with beautiful sunflowers on the walls, the staff are friendly and there's a great ambience.

The Terrace

62 Fore St, Ilfracombe EX34 9ED, UK – 01271 863482

Really great tapas, drinks and desserts! Five of us went for the Endless tapas on a Friday night and it didn't disappoint. I recommend the chorizo, pork skewers, sangria and the chocolate fondue!

Lovely restaurant, great food and generous portions. We ate here with our three year-old and she loved it - we’ll be back!
