We visit Brixham every year and always come to the Bistro for at least two of our meals while on our weeks holiday. This year was no exception, the food again was superb with stunning views across the bay. On our first visit I ordered the Burger which was awesome and on the second visit we had fish pie which...

Spot on as usual , our family make three trips a year to Brixham & always make a point of eating here at least once each visit. The food, views & service are all of a high standard each visit, we genuinely look forward to our next visit

Fab location. Terrible food and it costs too much. Had lunch there. Pasta was drowned in what was clearly a shop bought jar of sauce - and not a good one with some rubbery prawns floating in it. Chips were reheated and greasy.

We were there twice this week. Lunch on Monday and Wednesday evening. Very good as always. We never miss going when down in Devon. We will try around Christmas time as we have heard that we have missed out on the atmosphere by only coming during the Summer. The staff are always friendly and helpful and we both feel we... More

What can I say. To keep it simple thank you for a great meal. We stopped of for a coffee in the morning whilst visiting Brixham and decided to go back for dinner. The service and food is amazing. The fish of the day was cooked to perfection and very very fresh. Thank you for a perfect evening.....

This place has wonderful atmosphere. Everyone wants to be here. The location is fascinating on many levels. The food is just right, tasty and filling. The service is warm and inclusive from everyone. So we came back next day for breakfast. Missed it by 5 minutes but no matter, we had a great lunch and saw a pod of 8... More

Just passing and popped for a cup of tea but ended up getting a cream tea. Lovely location and pleasant staff. Cream tea was very good too!

We chanced upon the Breakwater walking as far as we could along the promenade one lunchtime. The sun was shining and the sky was blue so we sat outside on the upper decked area. Those tables in the sunshine were reserved (these lucky people had prior knowledge) no matter, we sat in the shade content. We'd been looking for a... More
