Excellent views over breakwater beach. Service good, food was lovely - fresh smoked salmon, dressed crab & prawns with salad. My wife had mussels in a garlic and cream sauce. Super fresh and reasonable value. Recommended.

Food okay. Lemon sponge cold (not warm as menu said) Waitress needs to learn not to hold clean glasses by putting her hand in them! I can see this cafe being popular but didn't deliver today

We had had two meals at the breakwater Bistro and found them reasonably price and with a table booked in the upstairs part which had good views of Torbay. The service was excellent and quick with the staff very friendly. Will most certainly revisit again.
