We’re on holiday down in Devon & chose Lilicos from trip advisor comments & ratings. We booked for 7pm but were 15 minutes late as my satnav took us elsewhere, no problem though, a warm friendly welcome & a reserved table greeted us. I’d imagine it’s worth booking if you want a table at peak times. The team were very polite and friendly & delivered excellent service, not intrusive just very pleasant and efficient. We ordered bread & olives then four tapas, all really good quality, nice sized portions for two people & reasonably priced. Our bill was £40 including a large wine & a pint, more than good value in my opinion. Whether your a local or just on holiday it’s well worth a visit. Thanks for a lovely meal x

Came for evening dinner after many recommendations from friends.

We had a couple of drinks in the bar area beforehand and were well tended to by very polite staff. In the local Wetherspoons you can expect to wait 5-10 minutes, but here there were more than enough staff to serve people instantly despite the fact it was busy! My partner sampled 3/4 different cocktails throughout the night and they were all delicious (her words, not mine). The atmosphere in the bar area was great and everyone was enjoying themselves!

We went through to the restaurant area for our dinner and the tapas was some of the best we’ve ever had. We ordered 2 starter dishes and 5 mini plates for our main, shared between the two of us this was more food than we could eat! I would personally recommend the meatballs and the crispy chilli beef dishes.

One of the waitresses misheard me and brought me the incorrect drink, but this was instantly rectified with utter professionalism and my drink was replaced with the correct one without charge. Perfect customer service and handled in an exemplary manner by the excellent staff in lilicos.

We left tonight fat, full and extremely pleased with the experience. Lovely food paired with flawless service leaves me recommending lilicos to all.. you wont be disappointed!

With my best man having lived in Barnstaple for over a decade, Lilicos is a regular jaunt for us for a few drinks.

Although we've never ordered food there, it's a good venue for drinks. When the weather allows, their terrace is a great location to sit outside, soak up the sun in The Square and watch the world go by.

Recommend and will undoubtedly return on my next visit to Barnstaple!

I ate here expecting just a normal tapas restaurant but the selection here is more than just traditional Spanish fayre, think sweet potato fries and stuffed vine leaves. The food was soo good! We basically ordered the entire meat section of the menu and felt a bit guilty when we couldn't finish it. Just all tasted so good, really difficult to single any particular dish out for extra praise. You just need to go here and eat lots and you will know what I mean!

First time dining solo here and already looking forward to returning.

Very polite & welcoming waitress! Had brought along my book to read whilst waiting for dinner to cook. But barely had time to read it as I’d forgotten how quickly the food is served!

So many different dishes to try there’s something for everyone plus a specials menu.

Thank you very much, will return again very soon
