We went to this restaurant as it was the nearest to the hotel we were staying in. So glad we did, there were 4 of us & we had the tapas banquet. It was not what we usually go for but we were very pleasantly surprised, everything was tasty & plenty of it, in fact we struggled to finish it... More

Everyone really enjoyed their meals and the location is great. We were sat outside and you get fantastic views of the bay.

I loved this restaurant and if I ever went back to Paignton I would make sure I went back here. Don't miss it and book it up now. This is why I liked it so much: * It's beautifully decorated and some tables offer fab views of the bay. We were seated in the conservatory and had a terrific view... More

My wife and I are on holiday in the area and took a chance on TJ's and were rewarded with a terrific experience. Superb food and drinks were complimented by excellent friendly service, a great atmosphere and even good music as well as amazing views. The only drawback was that it won't be open for the last 2 days of... More

Having often wondered by TJ'S while walking to Roudham I often wondered what it would be like inside. My wife treated me to a Birthday meal at TJ'S and I must say we were extremely happy to have chosen TJ'S for my Birthday meal. The Tapas was delicious and included a large variety to chose from including succulent meatballs and... More

Heather [kitchen] and Chris [front of house] and respective consorts [Men in Black] did us proud with a lovely meal overlooking the harbour. There was a tapas option but we chose a starter from that menu along with a mains course and enjoyed our meals immensely. Service was attentive and the atmosphere relaxing: thanks to all.

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.
