We had a lovely table overlooking the harbour. The sharing snacks were great if you didn't want a big starter. The main courses were well cooked and nicely presented. I had the Trailer Trash mix of Seafood Thermidor & Burger - delicious!

This place offers a monthy five-course tasting menu on the last Wednesday of every month. It gives the kitchen a chance to show off their creative skills. We weren't disappointed. Each course featured an inventive mix of ingredients culminating in the best fillet steak I have ever eaten and a chocolate/oreo tart with a raspberry sorbet that had been jetted in from heaven.

Unmissable!

My Fiance and I had a meal here recently whilst in Torquay, this place was recommended to us by some friends and they were absolutely right. The food was amazing and the service was great, and there was lots of choice on the menu. We had a table by the window and it overlooked the harbour which was beautiful especially at night when it was all lit up. We would definitely recommend it to anyone staying in Torquay.

In Torquay for a few days and needed somewhere to eat. We happened upon the Harbour Kitchen and gave it a try. We weren't disappointed. The food and service is great. The only reason I haven't given 5 stars is because there could have been a bit more choice and variety of fish dishes given the location right in the marina. Otherwise very good indeed!

Really nice restaurant, food delightful! Had the gin infused salmon to start and it was awesome! Not a huge amount on the menu, so would have preferred more of a fish choice being the decor denoted fish fish fish, but still lovely! It was nice and quiet as we visited out of season.
