All was, as usual GREAT!
Good service, good food and fair prices!
Casual, clean and on the seafront with outdoor tables too....
Changes occasionally one or two things on the menu and sometimes has a special or two...
Highly recommended... can’t say more... try it!

(((** 8 July 2019 by Sally from Torquay
Staff were lovely but unfortunately they had run out of the wine we ordered along with three dishes we wanted to order which is very disappointing, however the staff were welcoming and polite

A nice restaurant, friendly staff, good, all be it relaxed service. The food was amazing; can personally recommend the scallop starter and the monkfish main course. This was sublime, the monkfish, the vegetables, the sauce. All perfectly balanced, sublime. One of the best fish dishes I have eaten in years....
One point of negative feedback. The tables on the main restaurant floor are crammed really close together. It’s impossible not to hear every word spoken on the next table however quietly they talk, it’s so bad it felt awkward at times having a conversation ourselves as it felt like we were interrupting them. Also, diners couldn’t get in and out from tables without banging into our table or our chairs and even the waiting staff would have to brush past or lean against us to reach over the table with food. I know it would reduce the number of covers and perhaps on a busy night profit but losing a table or two would make it a far nicer more comfortable experience, the quality of the food deserves it.

The food was lovely. Good choice. Well presented. The set lunch menu was very good value. Tap water brought to the table without having to ask for it.

We loved it. Wonderful Sunday lunch, reasonably priced, and the service was brilliant. The atmosphere was happy and bustling. We'll definitely go again.
