“Lovely Restaurant with great staff and brilliant food.”

This is the second time visiting The Terrace, and it was just as good as the first! Great choice for a holiday treat, the food was brilliant, nothing was too much trouble, felt very welcomed the moment we walked through the door. Great value for money, looking forward to the next visit!

“GREAT QUALITY FOOD SERVED BY HAPPY STAFF”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2014

to be honest we are not into the spanish tapas idea of food we have been to spain many times,
we have walked passed this restaurant a million times allways during the day when it is closed on this holiday to ilfracombe we walked passed and it was open and it looked busy so we decided to give it a, try we spoke to the Owner Mark who sorted us out with an outside table which i was a bit worried about if the wife and kids got cold but it was no problem as they were really well heated it was like sat on a beach , the food was great small portions but when you finished them you could order again and again as long as you finished the dishes you had been served you could place an order it was great i walked out of there really happy the food was great and the staff were happy in there work and Mark the owner would be buzzing around making sure all his customers were happy , welldone for a tasty well presented very clean happy place to eat and fantastically priced considering how much we ate cant wait until next time we go mozzarella sticks he we come !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

“Loved It!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 27 August 2014

My partner and I were fortunate enough to secure one of the few remaining tables here on a rainy Sunday evening. I'd never had tapas before so it was all new to me. We decided to go for the Endless Tapas option, which at £12.95 each (as it was before 19:30) proved to be superb value. We also decided to get a jug of sangria to complete our Spanish experience.
Every dish that we had arrived piping hot, was well presented and tasted wonderful. I think we had about 12 dishes between us, plus garlic bread and a bowl of salad each. My partner moved on to a soft drink after a glass of sangria and this was refilled as often as he liked for free. Therefore, to be presented with a bill of just over £40 made the whole evening incredibly good value.
The service was impeccable and the owner (I think his name was Mark) ensured that everybody was having a good time and was not afraid to 'muck in' and help serve when at it was busy. He even helped to clear up a spillage with the minimum of fuss.
If I could offer one small piece of constructive criticism, I would've liked to have had a hook in the ladies' toilet cubicles so that I didn't have to place my handbag on the floor.
Next time we're in the area, we shall definitely be booking a table in advance. Highly recommended.

“Brilliant food and service”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 26 August 2014 via mobile

Found this by chance and booked a table for that night. Food tasted fantastic, full of flavour and authenticity.Salad bar and carafes of wine only added to the experience, as did the sloping floor! Front half of restaurant, which had completely different decor and atmosphere, provided a much better dining experience than the disappointing back half where we were seated due to poor acoustics and outdated tables. Overall, very enjoyable and can't praise the food and service enough.

“Great atmosphere with even better food!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 August 2014

We first visited The Terrace 2 years ago whilst on holiday in the area and we loved it - since moving to the area recently we decided to revisit and we not disappointed at all. Both times we have had the Endless Tapas deal, where you get all you can eat from a set menu, great value! Next time we visit though we have said we will chose from the 'proper' menu, as there's a lot more choice and some things we really want to try!

The atmosphere is great and all the staff very helpful - Mark, the owner is a brilliant bloke and will make sure you have a great time.

See you again soon!
