A restaurant with a lovely view and yummy fish and chips. Always come here when I come to Brixham and will definitely be back in the future.

Back to Brixham & the Breakwater Bistro for the umpteenth time again this year .... As always, the welcome, food & service first class - including New Years Eve, which we loved. Thoroughly recommend the specials board & Bays Windfall cider 👍 Paddy & Mandy Dummett

Had a window table so good views over breakwater and pebble beach, I was a bit disappointed with the prawn cocktail, worth only half its £8.50 price tag, side salad's very unappealing but steak great and everything else superb. Bottle of Prosecco only £18.50. Nice staff, warm, friendly and not rushed. Have been before and will return again.

We had a wonderful lunch on a beautiful, sunny Brixham day, yesterday, 28 December, 2016. The staff were friendly and welcoming and the food was FANTASTIC as usual. A jewel in Brixham's crown!!

I reviewed the Breakwater early this year and was very disappointed. Just had a take away haddock & chips today, going there as most other places shut this Boxing Day bank holiday, and was very pleasantly surprised.

This cafe/bistro is open 364 days a year so during a Christmas break it was a godsend either side of the big day. Situated at the end of a 15-20min walk from the town centre it is ideally suited as a great coffee/tea stop right on the beach after a stroll around the harbour and marina. The lower floor is...

We visited in the summer but left disappointed. The service left a lot to be desired, despite it not being busy. The food was nice, but we weren't asked how it was, or if we required anything else. The views are amazing, but apart from that it's got the feel of a greasy spoon. The prices you pay you'd expect... More
