We had just arrived in Torquay and didn't know where to eat. This small restaurant was very welcoming -slightly hidden away but excellent views over the harbour from its first floor location. The food was superb and the staff were excellent- Highly recommended

This is my third visit and unfortunately standards have slipped a little. The fish is fresh and lovely but attention to detail wasn't great, our table wasn't laid, the wine took ages to come, they forgot our vegetables, the sauce on my fish had no...More
