Came here two days in a row while I have been on holiday in the beautiful Devon. On the first day I had the mussel as did my friend and we both loved them. Second day, I know it sounds greedy, but I had the tiger prawns and calamari, never tasted calamari so fresh, the prawns were also amazing. Credit... More

Enjoyable seafood meal on the terrace watching the sun go down. Friendly staff and great location. No spoon for my hot chocolate so got a face full of whipped cream every time I took a sip. I imagine heaven to be something along these lines.

My husband and I have been on holiday in Torquay for more than a week now, but tonight we had our first meal in this restaurant. We sat outside by the waterfront and despite the fact that it's Saturday night and beautiful weather it was peaceful and cosy. People at every table but no busy feeling. Great staff, friendly and...

Below Decks is perfectly located at Torquay Marina. The views are brilliant, as is the service. The food is of a good quality and is good value. If you want a nice meal in a fine setting or just want to watch the world go by over a drink, Below Decks is a great choice.

We had a coffee and a few snacks at this restaurant. Coffee for the wife was good but my expresso was bitter. Change the beans please. Tasted a little old stock I reckon. We had our dog with us and one of the waiters was good enough to bring her a bowl of water without asking. Nice touch. Thank you
