What a great discovery, great food, nice view and a reasonable price! Sorry I forgot the great service as well. I had fish which was cooked to perfection and was allowed to swap chips for lovely baby potatoes! My husband had steak and we had apple crumble- one of the nicest I have tasted. Highly recommended!

Fantastic food. all served fresh so do not rush because the service and staff are all welcoming .Fish and chips are on par with any top restaurants and the cream teas are brilliant .Its a comfortable compact restaurant/cafe but worth every penny.The place to be, and always a pleasure to return.

As you would surmise from the name this cafe is on the harbour and if you are lucky enough to get one of the two window tables upstairs the views are stunning.The menu is fairly basic but having said that it was well cooked & presented. Also popped in one afternoon for a cream tea and had trouble using up... More

Had a great family meal for three at this restaurant, and had real fun choosing the music on the old jukebox. Reasonable prices for good British food and the jukebox giving the entertainment and making us remember what real music is all about.

We went to this cafe twice on our stay in Torquay both times the food was really well cooked but on the second occasion sitting upstairs my girlfriend noted the fumes from the kitchen below were seaping through so we smelt by the time we left. That aside what a lovely little cafe with a nice atmosphere and good good... More

We had a superb, well presented meal, very reasonably priced, with excellent service. Very relaxing, with a table upstairs enjoying a view over the harbour. Highly recommended. We will definitely visit again.

We walked around the harbour looking for somewhere to sit outside and have tea. This place seemed to be fairly busy compared with many other places with similar outside seating. We were not disappointed, the cream tea was as good if not better than others we had had that week.Not expensive either. The tea was served in Royal Albert China... More

We ate at this restaurant/cafe on Monday 11th August this year, we was taking a stroll along the harbour and noticed how smart and clean it looked so went on in. We saw the lovely cakes on the side and knew it would be good food, looked huge and homemade. We went upstairs and sat atone of the two window... More

Me and my husband came here for a morning coffee most mornings. It is a relaxing cafe bar set right on the harbour, so the view is beautiful. Particularly now there are more boats moored on this side of the harbour. We also had a Devonshire cream tea here, which was served on a beautiful china cake tray. The clotted... More
