Our first visit to this bistro, it was recommended as an ideal January eve birthday venue. 18 of us arrived and were treated to a great night out by all the staff.

An afternoon stroll along Brixhams harbour side wouldn't be complete with out a stop at the Breakwater Bistro. A warm welcome seems to be the norm from very helpful staff The menu is resonably priced the premises always clean and tidy and if you find the right seats a fantastic view across to Torquay and beyond

We stayed in Brixham for just over a week for a big family get together and we went to Breakwater a lot, for breakfasts (which were excellent) and dinners, where the staff were so accommodating to fit our big group in and even in the smoking area! The Full English was great as was the coffee and the deserts were... More

We had a great lunch of fillets of sea bass for our first visit of the new year and it was so good to enjoy the meal and fine views across the bay. Good friendly service as always. See you again soon...
