Fabulous food and stunning views!

My husband and I spent the last evening of our holiday in Torquay visiting some of the bars by the harbour. We ended the day by calling in to Man Fridays. As it was late and the restaurant was busy we were given the table by the stairs, but were soon offered another table by the window, with an... read more

My first tip is to book in advance, we didn't and although the staff kindly managed to squeeze us in, we had to wait for a while. The complimentary drink helped the time pass by though! Excellent service and excellent food! The portion sizes were huge but the flavours were so amazing I ended up over-eating. The staff were very... More

Don't be put off by the Entrance up an Alley, get yourself in there, if you can get or book a window table, great view and sunset. Meal was excellent so were the two young lasses doing all the running about. 5 STAR ****

On our recent return visit to this restaurant we were quite disappointed. Whilst they had lots of seafood dishes on offer they seemed to be expensive when compared with other local specialist restaurants, the lobster and crab dishes particularly so. The fact that Man Friday's include a 'freshly baked garlic roll and six vegetables' is made much of but the... More

This is a top class restaurant, the food was stunning and the service was first class. We had the seafood platter for two and the amount of seafood is really worth the money. We will be back.

Our second time here, and even better. The food here is beautifully prepared and really enjoyable. Very attentive service, with knowledgeable staff. A great place to go for lovers of piscatorial cuisine. Will certainly be back. Thank you.

This restaurant was recommended by the proprietor if our B& who booked our table. Well, amazing! Window table overlooking the Port. The service was the best ever, the menu choices were fab and the food itself was literally 'to die for'. You get complimentary homemade bread, flavoured butter and marinated olives. Then I had the lobster tart, wow! My husband... More

Two visits in two nights? Need say no more. But I will... First night, (a Wednesday) we turned up at 7pm without a booking - along with about 10 others, some booked, some not. There was only one person to deal with seating and orders, which, understandably, meant that service was very slow (priority presumably given to those who had... More
