    Came here recently with a friend for the Mussels and Prosecco night and it was fantastic! Such good quality, highly recommended.
    In fact, it's one of my favourite restaurants because the food in general is always so good.....I always jump at the chance to come here.

    Nice table at the open window. Very friendly and quick service. Food was excellent - beside the sauce of the Monk fish was a bit too sweet.

  • ((((* 14 July 2019 by Vic from Torquay

    The venue and service were excellent. The food was 'fine dinning' superbly presented and the price reflected this. If I had one very mild criticism it would be that it was a tad to salty for me, you can always add salt at the table.

    Great location and we were able to book a table outside.

  • ((((( 11 July 2019 by David from Paignton

    As on previous visits, the food and service were excellent. We had a minor problem with a fish dish but the restaurant went over the top to correct it and make everything perfect.

    Good as always!
    Good food at reasonable prices with often changing menu which contains a fair amount of good fish!
    Recommend highly and indoor/outdoor seating on the seafront ...
