Went to this restaurant for a meal on a sunny summers evening. We were sat in the window, with fantastic views across the harbour. Such a beautiful place to live and eat. Food and service was fantastic. Definitely worth a visit if your in the bay. Compliments to the chefs. Will be returning very soon.

Before going to Torquay for a long weekend, I did what we all do and that that was to check in here to see what was good and what was not. This restaurant had excellent ratings and only a few concerns with service but on the whole looked the best Torquay had to offer. We booked the table a week... More

I have just relocated to Torquay and am keen to find nice places to eat. My partner was down for the weekend so we headed off to find a nice restaurant. We ate here on Friday evening. We were given a nice table with a view of the harbour. We shared a mussels starter. It was nice but there were... More

Me and my family visited Man Fridays for a combined Fathers Day and 40th birthday celebration. Staff very friendly and helpful. Restaurant clean and tidy. Food is so tasty. My husband had a russian steak with vodka and strawberries, i had a jamaican steak with malibu, coconut and pineapple, both with all the trimming inc different potatoes and vegetables. My... More

We visited early evening on a weeknight. The menu was great and there were plenty of specials on the blackboards. The waiting staff were very knowledgable about the food. I ordered a shellfish platter for one. When it arrived I honestly thought I'd been given the platter for two! It was enormous!!! I was in seventh heaven - all kinds... More

Visited on the off chance of a table and they had one free. Although the dishes are expensive (as it most seafood), the chefs did a wonderful job in bringing out the best flavors. I would probably say it was the best fish meal I have had.

Great place to visit, though you will need to book in advance, fortunately we stated over a Sunday night and as it was out of school holidays we were able to get a table. Fish on the menu included local catch of the day which had literally been caught and taken to the restaurant that afternoon. You certainly could not... More

Booked this after looking at Tripadvisor. Amazing food. Amazing location. Amazing service. We live near to a fishing port so we are not strangers to good seafood. However the Lobster and Turbot we had was the best we've eaten in a long long time. Please try the Crab & Shrimp Cocktail to start with, don't think I've ever tasted such... More

Of course we had to be in Torquay on the day of the week that most of the top rated restaurants are closed for dinner. Wandering around the harbour area we noticed a sign up this short alley for Man Fridays. We walked up some steep stairs not expecting to get in as we did not have a booking but... More
