Can not fault this restaurant in any way.Food delicious and extremely large portions.Staff very friendly.Love the touch of the complimentary loaf.Not a large restaurant so would recommend reserving a table so you will not be disappointed. Will definately return on our next visit to Torquay. Worth every penny and more.

Lovely restaurant overlooking the harbour, made extra special as it was dark & the view of the wheel was lovely. The fish served in this restaurant is wonderful, before your starter arrives, you are brought a complimentary wooden board with a fresh little loaf, special butters & olives. The sardine starter was very tasty, as was the filleted sea bass & 'out of this world' seafood pancake. Try to keep some room for the desserts as these are just as good!

Had two lovely meals in this restaurant. All fish dishes are top notch and quality and quantity matched - plenty of both. Service is understated but efficient and friendly. We liked it a lot!

On a recent visit to Torquay my partner and myself had dinner at Man Fridays. The food was excellent and the staff were very good. The views over the marina gave a lovely atmosphere especially as the 'wheel' was still there and lit up at night. We were so impressed with the menu that we went back a second time. However on our second visit my partner forgot her reading glasses. Since we were leaving early the next day I phoned on returning to London and asked if they had been found. They had been and they mailed them straight away inside a spectacles case. I phoned to arrange payment but they refused as they said it was part of the service. Apparently they especially bought the case from Poundland. The downside is that this is not a cheap restaurant but if you are looking for that special night out this should be on your list.

Myself and a friend ate here whilst at a conference in Torquay. We had struggled to get a table at other seafood places, but in the end were so pleased we came here. You feel like you are going up steps to nowhere, but the first floor dining room has a lovely atmoshere and great views over the harbour. Service was good and attentive. We had a platter selection and a sea bass dish- both excellent, and the portions were indeed huge. Vegetables and bread really good too. Not bad value for the quality, though we did not have wine which would have raised the bill considerably. Would recommend to any seafood lover and we would love to come back for a daytime meal to savour the view.
