Went here at the Jubilee weekend as partner heard it was amazing for fish. As a veggie, I asked for the veggie list which had 5 or 6 things, but no price. Choosing kebabs, I was told 'sorry, we dont have any skewers' chose fanned aubergine with veg and mozzarella..disgusting!! hard tasteless veg in a cheap jar of very synthetic tasting tomato sauce - if there was mozzarella- it was well hidden. partners fish was bland and overpowered with sauce. When the bill came- veg dish was £16!!! 0nly £1.95 cheaper than fresh caught sea bass!! appalling food. Wines grossly overpriced. Tried to email and the email address on their web site just comes back as undeliverable.. Not to be recommended

We have visited Torquay twice over the last couple of years and both times we ate at Man Friday's because it is simply delicious! We discovered the place by accident on our first visit and appearance from the outside with its neon lamp flashing at the doorway at first made the place look a bit seedy and more like an entrance to a strip club, especially as you have to go upstairs to get to the restaurant!! Hence we were a little cautious at what we might find, but decided to give it ago anyway....and have to say we're very glad we did! The food is amazing, especially the seafood. We were given fresh homemade bread on arrival which is fabulous and both meals we had there were to die for! The sauces for the Mussels and the mushroom starter are particularly yummy, and great for dipping your fresh bread into if it's lasted long enough for your starter to arrive! The restaurant itself is quite intimate but with a relaxing atmosphere and overlooks the harbour, so if you're lucky enough to get a table by the window it is fab. Have recommended to friends who have also very much enjoyed their meals here also.

We stumbled upon this restaurant by chance on a day out in Torquay.
The setting by the harbour is lovely, with a great view from the balcony- the perfect setting for a romantic meal.
The waiter who served us was friendly and helpful and the selection of dishes on the menu was fantastic. We opted for the three course set menu, which was incredible value for money. The portions were overly generous if anything, with the main courses coming with a selection of three types of potato and seasonal vegetables. All of our food was cooked to perfection, the crab soufflée being a particular highlight.
As someone who eats out regularly while away on business, I get the opportunity to try a lot of restaurants, and I can honestly say this was one of the best I have visited in a while.

Thank Rosie F
