I live in Torquay and some friends and I have always wanted to visit here as we only ever heard good things about it. So finally booked us a table to see what all the fuss was about. And we weren't disappointed. The decor inside is lovely with great views over the harbour. The staff were welcoming, friendly and efficient.... More

Wow - what a find. This restaurant is small, and being on the second floor of the building, has a great view of the harbour. Having a seat near the window to view the harbour added to the experience. However the main reason you come here is for seafood. The seafood platter - although a tad expensive - is worth... More

Came here Saturday evening with my other half. I had booked this place a few months in advance as I had heard it gets busy! I am glad I had... the tables were close together and all filled. We were given the best table, overlooking Torquay Harbour... probably because I had booked in so long ago! The Australian white wine... More

We had high hopes for this restaurant based on the great reviews, unfortunately Man Fridays did not live up to them. We arrived for our 6pm booking to a frosty 'welcome' and it seemed they had not finished setting up. We could hear vacuuming and it was completely silent, no music. There was one other couple seated less than a... More

Just yummi and very big portions for reasonable price . The view from the restaurant is beautiful, just in front of the harbour and the wheel. Fish is fresh and staff is very attentive . Recommended for who wants to have a decent dinner

I've eaten at this restaurant many times and it never fails to impress. The staff couldn't be more welcoming and accommodating, they will go out of their way to insure you have a pleasant experience. They're also very knowledgable about where each fish has come from etc (I quiz them relentlessly!). The food is absolutely to die for! I've never... More

We turned up at this restaurant quite late and without a reservation. We were seated at a table with a great view of the inner harbour and had a lovely meal. The restaurant is on the first floor with large windows overlooking the boats, and is a great place to watch the sun go down in style. The food was... More

Saw this place when arriving in Torquay down a side turning opposite the harbour, sign saying monkfish got me interested! It didn't look much from front so checked it out on here and had good reviews so we thought we would try it out. So glad we did! Up some stairs to a lovely restaurant serving excellent food, with complimentary... More

I had heard a lot about Man Friday but I only got to try it recently. It very much lived up to its good reputation. The earlybird menu included a lot of my traditional favourites & I was delighted with each dish. The starter I choose was deep fried Brie with a very light raspberry coulis & it was fantastic,...
