Nice little restaurant, stunning views over the harbour. Extensive menu, don't be fooled, they do more than just seafood! Other half had a lobster tart starter which he said was amazing. The complimentary garlic bread is excellent. Different mains, the duck and stuffed chicken parcels. Both lovely and the three kinds of potatoes the mains come with hit the spot. Brûlée dessert was yummy too. Service a bit slow while taking orders and bringing a bill. Also, the woman on the table next to us took her shoes off and sat crossed legged with the bottom of them on show which I thought was a little inappropriate for such a nice place. Obviously not their fault but thought maybe the could of said something.

Visited on recommendation from our B&B landlord. We ordered the seafood platter for 2. Complementary bread and olives duly arrived while we waited. .nice touch. When the platter arrived it took our breath away. Several trips by our waitress garnished our table with what could only be described as a Fishing Boat full of delight. Everything was tasty and we were supplied with a variety of tools in order to extract the flavoursome meat from each type of shellfish. ..Amazing!!

This restaurant is amazing, we only visited Torquay for 4 nights and ended up going to Man Friday's our 1st night and because it was so good we had to visit again before we went home.

This please is unreal, the restaurant itself is lovely, not to big so not a noisy place, and they have big windows looking out over the harbor which have lovely views. The staff were all perfect, didn't get a name but the girl in her 20s I'd say with brown hair was lovely. She served us both times and was very accommodating and chatty, excellent customer service. Even though I deviated from the menu they were happy to accommodate me!

Both times we went I had the shellfish seafood platter for one, it was amazing. Every piece of seafood was unreal, and you could tell it was fresh. (You don't get that quality seafood up in Sheffield :)) It had on it smoked salmon, massive shelled prawns, smaller un-shelled prawns, squid, scallops, razor clams, muscles, crab and lots more :) Yummy!!
My partner had sea-bass the 1st time and he loved it, was cooked beautifully and packed full of flavor. The second time he had steak and love that too. You also get complimentary garlic bread and olives as a starter, which is a lovely extra touch!!!

And all for a good price too, we will be visiting Torbay again next year and 100%% will be visiting Man Friday's again. Thank you!!

We ordered a seafood platter for one, and a steak. The seafood platter was huge, I'm sure with the sides and complimentary bread, would have fed the two of us. We didn't order any starters, which was definitely the right decision.

The steak wasn't as good as the platter, but maybe that was because we had so much food anyway.

One thing I would advice is to book in advance. We went on a Saturday evening, and it was so busy that we have to wait a good 15minutes for our table despite booking.
