2nd visit to this wonderful restaurant but certainly not the last! Fantastic food, including a special vegetarian coeliac option and wonderful friendly service in a lovely setting. One of Torquay's gems for sure. Thank you for another wonderful visit.

Small & cosy but big on service & taste, either meat or fish (we sampled both) were divine & cooked to perfection, good wine & cheese selection, wise to book here, but a definite highlight of our English Riviera experience

This is a little gem, five stars well deserved - staff, service and food was superb. Definitely worth a visit. Make sure you book though, as it's not a secret how lovely it is.
