Excellent food and service. I would recommend the fish platter for two. Lovely situation on the harbour.

Been here about 3 times, doesn't disappoint, had monk fish, lobster but it was the mussels which were amazing! Great flavour and taste. Will be back again.

Booked a table, and actually restaurant was very quiet which was lovely. Service attentive and food looked and tasted very good. My only gripe would be that we waited a very long time for a dessert and in fact the coffee arrived first

This is the second time that we have visited. I had 2 fish dishes from the autumn specials menu and they were both superb. Can't wait to visit again when we travel to Torquay.

Went here after reading the trip advisor reviews. It's a lovely little bistro which is family run and serves great food. The portions are extremely generous and the staff are friendly and unpretentious. We shared the seafood platter. Our waitress gave great advice on the...More
