Food is excellent. Staff our friendly we have been many times. The views are probably the best in the bay. It's also dog friendly.

Having discovered the Breakwater last summer it was delightful to call in this afternoon for a cream tea. The standard of service was as good as before and the scones were probably the best I have ever tasted - light, fluffy and slightly warm. Without doubt I'd recommend the cream tea here. Enjoy; I did!

Relaxed and comfortable. There were 12 of us and all enjoyed great service and very good food. I would recommend any of the fish dishes. Reasonably priced with great views over Torbay. I would recommend this place for a chilled out meal.

We have visited a few times now and absolutely love this place. We went today for late lunch I had fish platter salad which was so fresh and very tasty. My husband had the burger which was also very good not your normal thin burger! The staff are so friendly and welcoming and we can't wait to return again soon.... More

Been coming here for about five years and the food this visit was simply brilliant. We had a big party of 20+ and as usual they served us quickly with lovely food. Fish and Chips was awesome, very fresh fish with great mushy peas, my wife's burger tasted really good. Other people highlights included an enormous prawn salad lemon sole... More

7 of us across 3 generations had a fabulous evening here. Most went for seafood options which left the table looking just a bit cluttered and messy! Staff as ever were cheerful, attentive and efficient. Lovely atmosphere, food and of course location. Great place for a family meal, apparently there is also a children's menu but our gang like seafood... More
