When visiting a seaside town like this you really must sample the local fish and seafood and we found this restaurant online. As it was at the end of the season, the opening hours were more restricted, so we booked on a Wednesday night, but it was still really busy. Food was of a very high quality, even though some...

Celebrating a birthday for a friend of the older generation we had a fabulous time. Great choice of food that was well presented with nice polite unintrusive service. Wonderful views of the harbour and a lovely calm atmosphere in the restaurant. Would definitely go again. As a local Torquinian I can't believe I hadn't heard of or eaten here before.... More

For seafood lovers this is a must. Fantastic choice of dishes. We had the lobster Thermidor which was delicious and the presentation was lovely. The staff very friendly and helpful. Booking is a must to avoid disappointment

This is a lovely restaurant that sell local caught fish from the day boats in the local area. The food and presentation is just the best. Service is good. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone that like sea food.

Visited this restaurant for first time, bread on table amazing, scallops were melt in the mouth, lobster best I've eaten and baked peaches with ice cream delicious. Would certainly recommend a visit.

Been here a couple of times for dinner where the food and service have been excellent. You get the house garlic bread to start which is a hand baked loaf of bread served with a baked garlic bulb and butter - great combination. Main course first time was the hake with garlic, ginger and chilli - fantastic flavours and everything... More

this was a first visit, which we found by chance. The service was very good from the moment we arrived. The food was so good, an amazing variety of seafood and fish all cooked and presented beautifully. Maybe a little on the expensive side but well worth it. Would go back again to have one of the seafood platters which... More

We booked a table at this place for valentines day last minute as we were in Paignton for a few days, we didn't realise there was a set menu for the evening so my boyfriend was at first disappointed that he couldn't have the lobster, but it was all forgotten once our food arrived! Everything we both had tasted amazing,... More
