We booked a table on the current 2 for 1 offer. When we arrived the restaurant manager told us the offer had been changed that day and the meals we had expected were not on offer.

You could have had 2 meals for under £10, but we went for the more expensive ones, my husband had pork and I had salmon - this was a VERY good decision the food was AMAZING and we were served by a very charming young man.

Whilst on a weekend break in Torquay with my hubby we spotted this place in a guide from the Tourist Information. On entering into the cocktail bar the place was warm & welcoming with lovely decor. We ordered our cocktails at the bar with somewhat of a bad mannered madam (she would be the only let down to this restaurant... More

Popped in for pre-dinner cocktails and have to say service was fab, cocktails (mojitos) were very good and the lounge is very comfy. Great place to meet friends and relax!
