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.

“Good lunch at The Poopdeck...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 28, 2013

The Poopdeck Restaurant was one of only a couple of places open for lunch on Saturday 28 December. We enjoyed Brixham creamy fish soup followed by Grilled Lemon Sole with prawns and homemade chips and peas. For desserts we had a Sticky toffee pudding with ice cream & Chocolate Torte with cream. All the food was very pleasant tasting and we had a bottle of Pinot Noir that went well with the fish course. The service was good and the bill quite reasonable. It was good to see others had also found The Poopdeck open and we will certainly come back for lunch again.

“Culinary delights”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

Visited this bright beautifully decored atmospheric personal restaurant for the first time Saturday evening, so pleased we booked as it soon filled up! a clean most welcoming place to dine the staff are courteous nothing was too much trouble. The menu has excellent choices, mains comes with superb vegetable side dishes, new pots, fries, roasted parsnips, mange-tout, carrots and bacon/cabbage with almonds their fish soup made to order was delicious some of the best octopus we have ever tasted!
The only regret was we should have arrived hungrier than we were so could have eaten all and more!
Thank you to all staff whom we met. We hope to see you soon.

“Fantastic, fresh, welcoming and the best Seafood platter ever!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 10, 2013

Visited for lunch on 10th Nov 2013, the Poopdeck is a small comfortable restaurant. We were given a friendly welcome and as we had reserved we had a table overlooking the pretty harbour of Brixham.

We ordered a Scallops, King Prawn and Lobster starter and the Neptune’s Feast Hot shellfish platter to share. What a treat, every item was superb and we felt this was the best seafood platter we have ever had. All the items had great flavour was obviously cooked with skill and the service impeccable we will definitely be returning.
