Had what i can sum up as one of the best meals ever... With plenty of choice ans not just fish, i settled for the duck that was just pink and moist cooked to perfection. Was made to feel highly welcome by friendly staff whilst enjoying the perfect view across the harbour. A real treat and a must for all.

We had a seat on the balcony overlooking the harbour which was perfect on a warm summer evening. The waitress was pleasant and friendly and the menu looked good. We ordered wine and with it came the complimentary garlic bread. Our food was excellent and the only disappointment for me was that I had ordered the Moules to start, wish... More

Picture yourself sitting on a terrasse, catching the last rays from the sun as it sets behind the harbour, overlooking both harbour and all the people pasning by, and getting pampered with the catch of the day by a very attentative and welcoming waitress. Just such was our evening in Man Fridays Lobsterhouse: well-balanced fishcakes, lovely moules, delicate hake, creme... More

My boyfriend and I visited Man Fridays after a weekend in Torquay and were thoroughly pleased. The waitresses went above and beyond and were very friendly and welcoming. The whole place had a great atmosphere. Food was fantastic: nice selection of local fish cooked to perfection; the lemon sole in citrus butter was divine. I also had a rather devilish... More

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

We were given a nice table with a view of the harbour. We shared a mussels starter. It was nice but there were... 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
