If i go back to Torguay again, i will come to this restaurant early enough to get the seafood platter. Or i will go back to Torquay for this restaurant. Excellent food, wine and awesome staff.

A very quirky place , above a bar on the seafront. A very warm welcome by the owners daughter. Great selection of seafood , good service and a reasonable priced wine list. Not too big, so must book.
