Visited on a Weds night in June and only just got a table, full mid week, this must be good? It was! Set down a side alley, out of the way, the entrance opens onto a stairway up to the restaurant which is really lovely with doors out onto a balcony overlooking the harbour. A really lovely room with a comfortable and relaxed atmosphere. The food was just wonderful, take a look at the pictures we posted. Highly highly recommended.

My wife and myself wanted a nice but quiet meal with a great atmosphere, great service and quality food. With Man Fridays you get all three. My wife is a fish lover, I am not. You may ask "Why go to a fish restaurant?" The answer is that although it is a fish restaurant, you don't have to like fish to eat there as they can cook steak and other non-fish items equally as well!
Do yourselves a favour and book. Go on..... you'll be so pleased that you did.

We have eaten here a number of times so thought it about time I left a review.

As previous reviewers have said the restaurant is tucked away upstairs just off Victoria Parade, but it is worth seeking out, as they offer delicious food with fantastic views over the harbour.

The service is efficient and knowledgeable, and the food is always perfectly prepared – my favourites being the crab tart and lemon sole.

There are lots of extra touches which make the meal extra special, from the complementary freshly baked bread and olives, to the lovely and plentiful accompaniments that come with each meal.

We recently took some friends there who are fish lovers, and they declared it "amazing"! There are other great restaurants in Torquay, but for lovely fish with a great view, you can't beat it.

Enjoyed a lovely meal this evening with my husband. Beautiful freshly cooked fish cooked to order. Excellent service and atmosphere.
No disabled access as there are stairs up to the restaurant.

Lovely food, lovely staff always my first choice when going out. Food is always excellent. Portions are generous so don't usually order a starter especially if a desert is on the cards.
