Everything we both had tasted amazing,... More

A warm friendly welcome and a great location on the harbourside. Our favourite restaurant in the area. We enjoyed local fresh fish that was cooked and presented to a very high standard. Always a great place all round.

This a little gem! Get there early or book a table on the balcony if the sun is out. Great service by a very knowledgeable waiter and absolutely great seafood and fish. Very family friendly and just a great place! It's a shame there is not one closer to home, well worth a visit.

Had a lovely meal here, the platter wasn't available as they rely on seasonable produce and depend on the fishing boats come in, that's how fresh and tasty it all is. We chose some alternatives and they were very enjoyable. The wine was also very good. Service was slow and there were only 3 couples in the restaurant but at... More

Large party of us went to Man Fridays for a Christmas Party meal. Again, superb, tasty, gorgeous food served. Can not fault this place at all, a lot of our party had not been here as it is a hidden away but I know they will definitely all be going back. Thank you for an excellent evening.

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

Not only are the front of house staff a pleasure to be served by, but the behind the scenes staff a... More
