This restaurant keeps getting better and better. After two previous excellent visits we brought our two teenagers on a birthday meal on this occasion and they loved it too. The shellfish platter and the mussels will always be my highlight but fish in tempura batter was also excellent. The platter for 2 served three of us (not sure the potatoes... More

Nice little restaurant, stunning views over the harbour. Extensive menu, don't be fooled, they do more than just seafood! Other half had a lobster tart starter which he said was amazing. The complimentary garlic bread is excellent. Different mains, the duck and stuffed chicken parcels. Both lovely and the three kinds of potatoes the mains come with hit the spot.... More

Visited on recommendation from our B&B landlord. We ordered the seafood platter for 2. Complementary bread and olives duly arrived while we waited. .nice touch. When the platter arrived it took our breath away. Several trips by our waitress garnished our table with what could only be described as a Fishing Boat full of delight. Everything was tasty and we...

This restaurant is amazing, we only visited Torquay for 4 nights and ended up going to Man Friday's our 1st night and because it was so good we had to visit again before we went home. This please is unreal, the restaurant itself is lovely, not to big so not a noisy place, and they have big windows looking out... More

We ordered a seafood platter for one, and a steak. The seafood platter was huge, I'm sure with the sides and complimentary bread, would have fed the two of us. We didn't order any starters, which was definitely the right decision. The steak wasn't as good as the platter, but maybe that was because we had so much food anyway.... More

We orderd the seafood platter for two, guessing there would be two of each item, NO, this was not the case, we were told that there would be oysters on the dish, wrong, what we should... More

We read great reviews about the place so we booked for dinner. The restaurant is in a great spot on the harbour, and the décor is nice enough. We all ordered starters. The ladies had lobster chowder, which they both enjoyed. I ordered the large peeled prawns to start, which was disappointing, they were not large prawns at all. For... More
