Went on my wife's birthday. There was 5 of us. The nice lady explained that all meals were cooked to order and all fresh. I will not go into detail of all our meals but ever one were excellent. Will definitely go again.

We visited with friends on a Saturday night. We received a warm welcome and enjoyed the overall atmosphere in the restaurant. All food is freshly cooked to order so inevitably there is a slight delay between ordering and receiving the food.

Amazing starters. Fresh scallop and king prawns. The best steak in Torbay, better than The Elephant, and certainly all the chains. Awesome deserts of Zabaglione and tiramisu. Service impeccable and personal. X

My wife had the Italian Scallops as a starter followed by the Rosemarino and loved them both. I went for the Minestrone soup and the Sirloin Pizzaiola and again they were both superb.... More

My partner and I dined here during our recent stay in Paignton. Although the front of the restaurant doesn't look like much the food speaks for itself. I had several, very large, king prawns in a not too spicy sauce which were the best I've had anywhere, really meaty and not too expensive at around £18 which included sides of... More
