We had the most wonderful meal. And agree we would change absolutely nothing. Attentive service and fantastic food. But beyond anything we felt so well accommodated, we notified before that one of us cannot have gluten and the other dairy (we often feel like the most complicated of couples) but they could not have done more! They adapted every dish we wanted, created new ones and provided us with an unforgettable wonderful meal! Thank you so much!

This is the second time we have dined here and we were not disappointed by our return. Between the 4 of us we tried most of the dishes on the limited menu and we were all pleased with what we had. Service was efficient and friendly.

La Gendarmerie continues to delight on our return to the area! A family business, that has been listed in the Michelin Guide for many years, provides consistently exceptional cuisine and attentive service - de même mesure à mon expérience en France.

My partner and I commend Mike and Sarah for their commitment and high standards to gastronomy. Thoroughly recommended and well worth a visit - so much so we went back twice during this holiday!!

Been here a few times and food is always outstanding. I don't agree with comments about small portions- it's about amazing ingredients put together in a way you sit an appreciate every mouthful. You don't here for quantity over quality. We certainly don't leave hungry anyway... Good wine choice. Service is seamless and professional. It's not cheap, but don't mind for a special occasion.
We will be back when we're next in ilfracombe.

We booked this restaurant due to the amazing reviews. It has been 20 years since visiting Ilfracombe. We are certainly not 'heathens' in any shape or form and dine out all over the world. However I would have to say 'pretentious' is an under statement. We both left very hungry and the portion sizes were mean to say the least and no we are not oversized people! The only saving grace I would say regarding this restaurant was reading the reviews on the way home all the way back to Lichfield because the comedy replies from the owner were Stirling! We look forward to the reply!
