Yes, faultless. There should be more restaurants like this. Good, simple, robust food. Well cooked, well seasoned, well balanced dishes. Add in friendly service, reasonable prices and an interesting wine list and what's not to like!?

During our week in Brixham we tried a few places to eat; we chose this for a special meal out without the children and it really delivered. The food was delicious and paired well with the wines suggested by Katherine. The espresso martini was out...More
