After spending a day on the seafront we popped into Shoreline for an early dinner and I found my fish and chips lovely. The place itself is clean and modern and staff were polite and helpful. The seaside views also contribute to the surroundings.

The best moules we've eaten in the UK, possibly even better than those at an excruciatingly expensive restaurant in Paris, but that was so long ago, the comparison is hard to make.

Steak and wings cooked perfectly, BBQ sauce on the wings not too sweet, so lovely. Coleslaw was fantastic, and this is from someone who doesn't usually like coleslaw, certainly not the supermarket stuff.

Excellent beer selection, the only criticism on that score is that it would be nice to have one ale on tap, but its difficult to keep it fresh if there's not enough turnover, so having bottles of ale is a good enough substitute. Having said that, I had lager anyway, so I suppose I can't criticise anyway :-)

Views over the bay are outstanding; we were treated to a pink sunset over Brixham whilst eating.

Wine was excellent, prices are exceeding good value for money, especially considering the location and the food quality, which is outstanding.

If this is one of your choices for dining, stop thinking and just go here.

I would describe the Shoreline as cheap as a cafe with the pretensions of a gastropub but it doesn't quite pull it off. That said the food is not bad and you can't beat the seafront location. It keeps me coming back.

We had previously eaten here when we lasted stayed in Paignton in 2008 and was first choice for us to eat on our arrival for our recent short break.
The restaurant isn't much to look at from the exterior but due to it's elevated position right on the beach has lovely views.
The food is good quality and freshly cooked.
Unlike some other reviewers we found the staff to be polite and helpful despite being quite busy.
We visited for a 2nd night but found the specials to be the same on both days so tried other establishments for the rest of our stay but would certainly look to eat here again when next in town.

Varied menu, good food reasonably priced, with a specials board that includes locally caught fresh fish. The crab salad was delicious. Can't wait to go back.
