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

The Harbour View Café is a restaurant / café along a strip of restaurants along the Torquay harbour. We had a great meal there - sat outside in the sun initially, then moved inside when the British weather got too much!. The food was of a good standard; the starters were good (if a little standard), the main courses were... More

We had dinner here, on Sunday evening and the food was well cooked, good quality and prompt. Our waitress was helpful, polite, and attentive. Fresh fish, locally caught from across the bay that we were looking out on, it doesn't get much better.

My family and I ate here last Sunday on our holiday and it was a great experience. Torquay was quite on the Sunday we visited because of the weather. The Harbour View Cafe was one of the only cafes with people in it so I had a quick look on Tripadvisor and knew we were on to a winner. We... More

After eating here in 2013 and then the food was fantastic, we revisited this August. The menu was sparse really and expensive I asked one of our party if the rib-eye steak was on the board outside as on our previous visit but it wasn't I was so looking forward to it. There were 7 of us and we had... More

Food was excellent we had the fillet steak which was beautifully cooked just how we asked for it, and reasonably priced. Great service, staff very friendly & helpful. Would recommend a visit there. Lovely sunset overlooking the harbour, what more could you ask for!!
