We had a work meal here and the staff could not have been more accommodating. The food was excellent and tonnes of it! It is a great place to go for a meal if you like fish. Good value and lovely atmosphere.

As for the flavours, they were delightful. They... More

We enjoyed a delicious meal here on New Years Eve. We had visited previously on a visit to Torquay and were impressed enough to book a table when we decided to visit Torquay again for a break after Christmas. It was the restaurant that popped up when deciding where to spend NYE and we're so glad it was. The food... More

Coming to Torquay has been a regular occurrence for the family for nearly 20 years now as the wider family love in the surrounding bays, however we had never tried this place before despite knowing it's excellent ratings on TripAdvisor. The ratings were well deserved as following a slow start to be seated etc, the staff were lovely (a young... More

There was lovely bread and olives to snack on whilst we waited for our orders to arrive. I had the mushrooms to start and the turkey for main.... More

A truly excellent Lobster Thermidor with the right balance of cheese and sauce so as not to lose the succulent sweetness of the so very fresh and generous sized whole lobster. I started with light and very tasty Thai Fish Cakes that provided a perfect contrast. A good selection of seasonal vegetables and three types of potato are included, together... More

This was a lovely restaurant and has been run by the family for at least 30 years. We had a seaview table which was great, the wine was excellent and the wine menu has a really good selection although don't expect a cheap wine to be listed. I had the seafood platter for one, and what a beautiful selection, well... More
