On the Rocks

Bistro in Torquay

Sliding doors and pavement tables make the most of the seaside view at this relaxed, informal cafe-bistro – it's just a shame the main beach road gets in the way. Still, it makes a pleasant spot to tuck into a bowl of mussels, a juicy steak or a creamy monkfish fillet, and reclaimed finds give it a rustic, semi-hipster vibe.

CoCo cocktail bar is next door.
