Quality food and quality service.. If you like good service, good food and a welcoming ambience then this is the place for you. Staff helpful and attentive. I always look forward to dining here and it feels like a special occasion on each visit. The "specials" are worth taking a look at.

just returned from Torquay and just had to add our review to those who have already been, we ate lobster thermidor which was sooooooooooo good, we were served promptly and the staff explained the available meals, we thoroughly enjoyed the experience and would love to return if we are in the area.

The hotel owner & others gave us glowing reviews of this place so decided we would book it for Friday eve, First challenge was finding it! It is up an alley with the bigger text saying The Lobster Pot, Man Friday's is in smaller text not so visible from the road. On arrival we were one of the first groups... More

Visited on 6th September after reading rave reviews on Tripadvisor and were seated near the window. We had booked for 7.30 pm and the restaurant was reasonably busy. Our order was taken and then we waited, and waited meanwhile drinking our bottle of wine until our meals were delivered 55 minutes later. I noticed others waiting an eternity for their... More

Tucked away in a lane way you could easily walk past this restaurant and not give it a second glance. It's surrounded by very ordinary eateries but this restaurant is certainly a cut above it's surrounding competition. The menu is extensive, so much to choose from and the portions are extremely generous. Man Friday's overlooks the harbour and the the... More

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
