Went for the 4th time to Man Fridays. Little disappointed this time, also the food is excellent. We went again for the sea food platter for 2 ,this time was sardines which r cheap fish rather than salmon or white fish. The mussels were not as good one mouthful for me. Still the starters were brill, stilton mushrooms, and garlic bread to start. Not sure I will go again, maybe we been too many times now.

We are going back for the third year running next weekend, great food service and value, you would be hard pushed to find better anywhere in the country. Keep up the outstanding work guys!!!

We had prebooked for our engagement meal. We had already choosen what we wanted so ordered straight away on arriving. 50 minutes later we were still waiting for our food. We had ordered the lobster (the most expensive item on the menu), we we finally got served it was totally uneatable & on complaining to the manager we were told "we can't get it right every time". Very dissapointing, we left after only paying for the wine that we had drunk. Not a very immpressive service & attitude from the resturant. Would NOT suggest it to friends or anyone else as it's too hit & miss.

Fantastic service and food! Don't know why they don't have a website tho'.

Stunning food, great value. Had the three course special meal and it is totally amazing. Love the bread and garlic butter and bits. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. Will always go back when in Torquay.

Going again tomorrow night. Since eating there for the first time have not eaten anywhere else. Great staff - great food - family run by a great gang.


I moved to Torquay in May 2008 and always liked the idea of eating here. I took my parents here in October and it was one of the best meals ever. The baked fish platter - amazing. Am returning in mid-March 2009 for the same.

We went to Torquay for a short break to celebrate New Year and ate here twice in our short visit... Amazing food and views, huge portions and friendly, professional staff. The food was very reasonably priced. We will definitely come back. Superb!!!

We went there for our anniversary. Absolutely lovely food, great wine and great service. Only fault is the portions are too large!!!! The starter salad was bigger than most main course salads I have had. Recommended.

Best fish dinner I've eaten in years. Fantastic views. Staff very helpful and polite, made the evening a delightful experience. Definitely worth a 5 star grade. Keep it up.

Suberb. The Seafood Platter was probably the best meal I've ever eaten. The service and atmosphere were second to none.We will definitely be back!

Amazing...Seafood pancakes to DIE for. Unfortnately had a starter and couldnt do justice to main course.

Superb selection of fish and meat. The Honey Glazed Duckling was absolutely fantastic. Lovely location and great staff. Will definitely be coming again when next in the area.
