This restaurant has tables on a pier alongside the Harbour in Torquay where you can sit outside on a sunny evening and watch the boats come & go. Order at the bar and pick up your drinks. The food gets delivered a short time later. Simple stuff like a bowl of Calamari, fish & chips or a pizza. All well... More

A walk by Torquay harbour was complemented today by a visit to Below Decks for breakfast. Accompanied by son and grandson I enjoyed a 'full English' (while husband had scrambled eggs and son, like me, had 'full English.') What can I say? A perfectly decent breakfast, not superb but enjoyable (the white bread toast was very pale - some might... More

It is worth finding this little bistro cum bar cum cafe, nesting under Living Coast in the outer harbour. The views are beautiful and interesting, the food limited but delicious, more snacky than full menu but nothing wrong in that. Well worth the visit.

Very good standard of food served all day ranging from traditional sandwiches, to Garlic Mussells, Paella and much more, Enjoy the terrace on the harbour and watch the boats in and out of the harbour whilst enjoying a cool refreshing drink.

Good reasonably priced breakfast, only criticism, the sausage was deep fried. Sat outside in the sunshine overlooking the harbour, perfect start to our day in Torquay.

The staff is really friendly, the view is awesome and they have a very good deluxe hot chocolate, I recommend if you want some casual time.

It's been some time since I have received such discourteous treatment from anyone, least not from someone supposedly at work! I entered the cafe with the intention of purchasing a coffee, but the blonde manageress/waitress made sure that myself and the 8 others in my party reconsidered this notion entirely! We ended up having a lovely time at the Rock... More

This informal little cafe opens out onto the harbor walk with great views of boats . We both got the fish stew which was excellent and affordable.

We called in for lunch on a warm sunny day after visiting the aquarium a few doors down. We are a family of 5, the youngest being a baby. We ordered a variety of food from the menu including the Anti-pasti, a couple of burgers and fish & chips. Our food arrived quickly and was delicious. We were very impressed... More
