We stopped here for a drink and snack. Although all the tables were reserved they allowed us to use a table and have a bite too eat without any problems at all. The staff were incredibly friendly and the food was excellent value for money. Will come back when a little bit warmer.

Thank Jeff C

We are locals who take different guests to the Breakwater Bistro. One gentleman from New Zealand said it was the best meal in an English restaurant he had had. The atmosphere is warm and friendly and we have never been disappointed. The staff are welcoming and efficient and the view is fantastic whatever the season.

It was nice to warm up with breakfast in this small harbour-side cafe. The food was very good and promptly served. The cafe is positioned next to a council car park with views of the breakwater and the bay. Friendly staff and clean facilities. Outside seating. (If we'd sat outside we'd have had better views of the Purple Sand Piper and Slavonian Grebe.) As this place is popular with locals as well as tourists I suspect it gets pretty busy in the summer.

Walking from Brixham to Berry Head and stopped off here for a coffee break. Quick, friendly service - great views. Certainly will stop again when in the area.

After having lunch in the harbour we took a walk to the Breakwater. Not knowing about this Bistro we all wished we had lunch here!

We all had room for Mocha, Milkshakes and the Awesome Hot chocolate with marshmallows.

See you soon for Lunch.
