The tables at the front of the restaurant give lovely views across the harbour and bay making for a great place to be at sunset. Just... read more

What a find, we were roaming around looking for somewhere to eat and stumbled across Man Friday's. We booked for the next night, first checking they would have lobster.

You could not fault food or service! We had a brilliant evening tonight. We have lived in Spain for14 years and this is the best seafood meal we have had since our return to UK 18 months ago ! We will be back well done for such a lovely restaurant :)

I visited Man Fridays with my husband and my daughter. We have been here several times and every meal has been amazing. Superb service. We have been to restaurants all over Torquay and Torbay and this is the best place by far. You will not be disappointed.
