We booked here for Sunday evening and was not disappointed. We had the one plate Rump steaks rather than Tapas style meal with a lovely bottle of Shiraz. The steak was done perfect to our taste. A very good size meal... was debating whether to...More

Ok I'm biased as we've been coming here for years, but there's a good reason we keep coming back. Well four good reasons actually, quality, hospitality, location, and flavours. Tapas but not your normal tapas. Better quality, fantastic flavour combinations, larger portions than you're probably...More

Went here for a family meal what a disappointment service was a disaster. Food was okay, good ingredients just over spiced and not what I expected .

Stunning views across Paignton Harbour and further out to Torquay. Exceptional service and not rushed. Choice of Tapas varied and when it arrives does not disappoint. All cooked to perfection. In fact one of the best places I have had the pleasure of experiencing.

When we visited, the menu was clearly annotated with Gluten Free, vegan options etc. I seem to remember seeing quite a few Gluten free options so I think either give them a call or check out the menu online but they have... More

Summer holidays start on Monday. Best thing to do is to phone TJ's and ask them.

We pride ourselves on having a unique combination of menus; with our Tapas style menu consisting of over 25 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 One Plates Menu', vastly different in content, these 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. Lovingly prepared to order, using, as often as possible locally sourced fresh seafood, meat and vegetables.
