Needed a nice breakfast to keep us going for the day. Out of season thought it might be a problem. After a few false starts we happened on this great little place. Choice was great. We had mushrooms on toast and poached eggs on toast. Lovely. And really friendly and helpful service. Ready for my next breakfast.

Nice, warm and welcoming on a cold morning. We enjoyed a tasty well-cooked breakfast. Decor is lovely too with a maritime theme in-keeping with its location. Definitely worth a return visit.

The food in BD is lovely and the paella is fantastic, great music and great atmosphere, visit here regularly. Would recommend but best to book as can get extremely busy.

While visiting Torquay from Canada we ate here several times. The food was fabulous and the service very good! The open air and being on the water was beautiful!
