The food in BD is lovely and the paella is fantastic, great music and great atmosphere, visit here regularly. Would recommend but best to book as can get extremely busy.

Had lunch here today and was not disappointed, friendly staff attentive and welcoming, with the added bonus of sitting outside on this balmy September day. Will certainly visit again and can thorougly recommend Below Decks.

While visiting Torquay from Canada we ate here several times. The food was fabulous and the service very good! The open air and being on the water was beautiful!

We were lucky enough to get a table outside on a warm , sunny day but soon found ourselves surrounded by a large line of people queuing for the ferry! There is nothing to separate the ferry queue from the tables in the outside eating area! Fortunately, a table on the other side soon became available so we moved. This... More

We have become frequent visitors to BD this year. Each time our visit has been great- whether inside if damp or out in the sunshine overlooking the harbour. Highlights include the mussels (some of the best I have ever had - I like the classic Mariniere but my husband loves the Thai style) - seafood generally, fish and chips, San... More

We had lunch on August Bank Holiday Monday at Below Decks, as a party of six. We ate on the 'deck', a fantastic location right on the marina with great views. The vegetarian selection was good - 'bar' food, but the sweet potato veggie burger was very nice. Service was prompt and friendly. Highly recommended if you can sit outside.

Thank Stu-and-Helen
