Description: This little quayside restaurant overlooking Brixham harbour and being by Brixham Quay the house speciality, need it be said, is seafood. All the fish comes fresh off the boat and everything superbly cooked to bring out the subtle texture and flavours of the different varieties of fish.And served up in portions that leave nothing to the imagination, other than wondering how on earth you are going to walk out of the restaurant at the end of the evening. Our food has customers coming back time and time again. Whatever the occasion, you can be assured that you and your guests will have 'an eating experience' in one of the most fashionable and renown seafood restaurants in Torbay Devon, that can only be the Poopdeck seafood restaurant.

“Dreadful fish and chips”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

I am surprised by the good reviews on here and at first wondered if I had the right place. Can't speak for all their menu but we called in for the fish and chip special at 1400 on a Sunday. Thought we would get proper fish and chips on Brixham harbour but they were terrible. Chips were dry and tasted like oven chips and the fish was tasteless. We couldn't eat it. We don't like making a fuss and just wanted to leave. we wouldn't have said anything but when we were paying we were asked if everything was ok. Therefore we told the lady that it was very poor and didn't expect oven chips. She denied that they were oven chips but when I said that they were very dry she just turned away and offered no further explanation or apology. She took our money without another word. Had she offered a reduction of any sort or even an apology for bad food then I would not be writing this review. I wish now that we had insisted on a discount because they certainly didn't deserve the money.

“Fabulous food,fabulous service”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

After spending a lovely week in brixham, we booked our last nights meal at the poopdeck. Three of us ordered different fish, all were beautifully cooked and delicious. My son ordered steak which was cooked to perfection. Desserts were yummy, cheese platter was exceptional. All in all a very enjoyable evening in a fabulously unfussy, wonderful little restaurant.

“Best seafood ever had!”
Reviewed July 29, 2013

Brilliant!A very HUGE plate of seafood! Fresh and tasty!especially the lobster and crab! My fd and I are crazy about it! Also the garlic bread with cheese on top is really delicious ! Since we booked the table in advance, it is so happy to have a table next to window! The view outside is really beautiful and lovely, especially the colorful houses on the mountain. It feels like Venice ! And even more beautiful! Strongly recommend !

“Brilliant”
Reviewed July 24, 2013

We visited the Poopdeck on a Saturday evening. The food was amazing, plenty of choices , very well cooked and presented. The staff where very helpful and friendly. Large portions, the starters where the size of a main course in a lot of restaurants, I would definately recommend this restaurant.

“Seafood Platter!”
Reviewed July 22, 2013

It is the second time we visited Poopdeck! Love the seafood platter since it has all of shellfish we like! Oysters, crab, lobster, different types of prawns... thinking back the food makes me hungry now. The food was freshly prepared and its so delicious~

The fish soup is also my favorite!

Will be back next year!
