I visited whilst waiting for divers to come back. What a fantastic way to while away the time. The views from the top floor and the tasty, well presented food made for an excellent experience. I'll be back!

Having moved to Brixham last week, the grandparents stole the kids so that we could sample a night out in town! Having no idea where to go we blindly picked the breakwater and we're so glad we did! The service was great, and you couldn't ask for a nicer setting! The menu is mainly local seafood which you'd expect here.... More

Having just moved to Brixham, we had lunch on a previous occasion, really good food and excellent service. I love my cooked breakfasts and I wasn't disappointed, best full English breakfast ever, the service was friendly, quick and it was very reasonably priced. This will be my regular eating place from now on. Fantastic 10 stars**********😍😄😀😃☺️

I can, hand on heart say, I have never had a bad meal at Breakwater Bistro, so much so that we had our wedding lunch there! everyone was excellent. For a birthday/celebration/function I would recommend. The service is always very quick, and the staff are always polite. The bistro is very well run and it shows. I have had breakfast,... More

A beautiful warm and sunny day, midway stop on a motorcycle ride out. We ate on the terrace overlooking the bay, the sea glittering in the bright sunlight. Very helpful attentative staff. In spite of being crowded the meal came much sooner than expected. Very hot food, and delicious mussels, my colleagues having the lunchtime deal of ham, eggs and... More

We've visited quite a few times now each year we visit Brixham, and it never fails to impress. Not extensive menu, but good local food always well served. Sunday lunch and catch of the day always are first class.

Had a brilliant Sunday lunch with friends. Staff friendly and attentive, food served in reasonable time and tasted great! The view has got to be the best in Torbay! A big plus factor for us, we wouldn't have eaten there otherwise, is that dogs are allowed.

Been to The Breakwater loads of times and never had a bad experience! However on the most recent visit, our experience was shocking. Starters and deserts were all lovely, cannot fault the waiting staff. However 4 out of 6 of the main courses (monk fish) were only just luke warm. After complaining and having the food taken away, a young... More

If you're looking for a wonderful place to eat do not miss this place. Excellent food service tip top and the icing on the cake the views. Ideal venue for breakfast lunch and dinner. Parking no problem if you cannot park outside use the multi storey and it is just a short walk through the underpass. Treat yourself you will... More

On Saturday my Devon friends hosted a birthday party for my significant birthday ( The F word ) We arrived at the Breakwater at 12.00 and were greeted by lovely smiling faces offering us sparkling wine and gorgeous nibbles. Tom and his team did us proud, the food was simply the best! We had the most amazing fish pie and... More
