Large car park, pretty lights along the seafront, sea views. Pleasant meal. Service on the slow side.

Absolutely the best eating experience ever. Food is full of flavour and cooked beautifully. It is Art on a plate of the highest calibre without compromising the taste and enjoyment factor. A small select setting over looking Torbay. Service was efficient without being too fussy allowing you to dine at your leisure. Prices were not extortionate either for this level of quality dining. Can't wait to return as extremely yummy.

wonderful for special occasions, staff and food always excellent, and one of the best views in the bay.

Marvellous food and location but very tired looking decor. We found the food excellent in every way. The service was enthusiastic but rather amateurish and the ambience very ordinary. There was no getting away from the fact that however good the food was it was being served in three star surroundings which took the edge off the evening.

Incidentally I've just read the review of anon9982. My comiserations to you Sir. I find your experience and their wholly inadequate attempts to deal with your justified complaint extraordinary.
