“Excellent fish”
Reviewed November 7, 2013

Really enjoyed a very traditional fish & chip fish bar and decided to have our meal in the restaurant. The young waitress was very good, worked hard, and was polite and cheerful.

The battered haddock was particularly good and if we visit Brixham again we would certainly return.

“Always perfect!”
Reviewed September 21, 2013

When we fancy some fish and chips we know of no better destination than the historic fishing port of Brixham and Rio's Fish Restaurant. The welcome from Steve and Bridget, courteous and efficient attention from their waitress and above all the quality of the fish make each visit special. We enjoy smaller portions and the OAP special is just perfect. The fish for this week's visit was whiting, freshly landed a short distance away at the fishing quay. Steve's chips are always superb, properly cut from real potatoes, not processed in some nasty factory and delivered in a plastic bag! It was good to see the restaurant full at 12.15 on a Wednesday, with couples waiting in the street for a table to come free. From their comments many had been attracted by Steve and Bridget's delightful appearance in the TV docusoap 'Fish Town. All well deserved by a lovely and hard-working couple!

“no acknowledgement of customers, very slow service”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

go here if you want to be standing around with no acknowledgement from the staff, not even a smile or hello. No hospitality whatsoever. Left and will not return. Do not go unless you want to be treated poorly and wait an eternity for a meal.

“Nothing special”
Reviewed September 1, 2013 via mobile

Cafe rather than a restaurant. Very cramped. Food was average, although not expensive. Staff friendly. Just a chippie with seating really. Was clean though.
