Had breakfast here twice, nothing too exciting, just a bacon baguette. A little expensive perhaps but it's the best location in town, the views over the harbour are beautiful and you really feel part of Torquay.

A taxi driver told us about the place when we asked him where weas good to go. 'The Offshore is popular with the locals' he said 'They have live music every night'. We saw femail vocalist on Sunday 18th August who was ok (not really my thing though) and two guys called AJ and Elliot on the Monday (19th) who were brilliantly funny.

There is a tall guy who works there, I think his name is Harry, who makes an excellent Long Island iced-tea. I had about six.

We popped in yesterday and ordered breakfast, found it incredibly greasy which was disappointing as the cafe most definitely isnt a greasy spoon.
The other food people were ordering looked nice

popped into Offshore bar with friends who were down for the weekend, we were lucky to seat outside from the the number of people. we only had drinks but were treated to lovely views over the harbour and great service. Anyone looking for a good drink and a catch up with friends should defiantly visit offshore.

We had a family meal here and enjoyed the food and the fantastic harbour location and ambiance. My wife and I though were disappointed with the service. The staff just seemed unfriendly and not particularly professional. One chap stuck of cigarettes, whilst the food was just plonked on the table with hardly a word. With better staff or training this would be a fantastic bar/restaurant.

Had a meal here last night. Great location overlooking the harbour. The food was gorgeous, freshly made & really generous portions. They had a band playing later in the evening which were really good & the atmosphere was fab. Definitely a favourite spot in the area
