Love , love , love this restaurant ! Been here many times and have always had fantastic food . If you love your seafood this is the place to visit , we always try the specials as you can guarantee to have the best local fresh fish / seafood , cooked to perfection by the very talented chef Harvey . Front of house is Helen and her team , they are all very knowledgable regarding the menu and keep your wine glasses well topped up !
The Espresso is a fantastic asset to Ilfracombe , there is no better place to be on a sunny evening - so if you live here or are just visiting give it a go , you won't be disappointed ! Jo and Ed norman .

We have been a regular here for about 3 years as we live in devon having moved down from the Home Counties. It is consistently high quality and whilst not the cheapest, is easily the best place to eat in Ilfracombe for a romantic meal. It is good for seafood and the steaks are good too.

Ps there are sunsets on a clear evening.

Don't be put off by the name. It's not a coffee shop, it's a very good (mainly) fish restaurant, with the choices changing daily due to the fish being freshly caught locally.
Pleasant knowledgeable staff. Well cooked food. Good stuff.
