We had an amazing meal just before new year. The food was fresh, tasty and the staff were great. We had ages from 12 to 47 and everyone enjoyed the food. We have tried to go there twice since and did not book, only to be disappointed. So, if you want some great food backed up with friendly service don't... More

We visited for the first time this valentines day and loved our experience. The food was fantastic and the service was great. We sat at the top end of the restaurant which didn't seen as 'romantic' as the lower half which was dimmly lit but this was our own fault for booking very late. It was still a lovely environment...

Well, Valentines night and the 'Mr' originally booked another place near by, however after hearing amazing things and overall thinking it would be more romantic, he cancelled and booked here. The lady was so wonderful, she fitted us in despite being very busy for the evening! When we arrived we were greeted warmly and I was struck with how atmospheric... More

We spent another Valentine's evening at TJ's this year. Yet again another wonderful meal in a lovely yet relaxed setting. We chose a selection from the tapas menu which was all cooked to perfection, beautifully presented which was complimented by the great service you always get at TJ's. This is by far our favourite restaurant in Torbay.... and believe me,... More

Description
We pride ourselves on having a unique combination of menus; with our Tapas style menu consisting of over 30 smaller portion dishes that can be ordered individually as a starter or in multiples to provide a complete meal - a very social and interactive style of dining, promoting lively debate between couples, families or groups until a compromise is reached concluding everyones preferences. This runs alongside our 'Chefs Sample Specials Menu', vastly different in content, with starters and main courses always including a succulent Steak. These frequently changing dishes focus on our chef's culinary and artistic skills creating thoughtfully flavoured and beautifully presented meals - basically Andrew is let loose to show off his passion!Lovingly prepared to order, using, as often as possible locally sourced fresh seafood, meat and vegetables.
