Dining options: Breakfast, After-hours, Delivery, Reservations
Description: 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.

On Saturday night, we had the perfect evening, dinner with our best friends, great service, not rushed by the owners and excellent food. Probably the best venue of its type in Torbay.
The food is first class, would recommend to anyone wanting a great meal and a superb evening.

This is the 3rd year we've chosen to celebrate my husbands birthday at TJ's and every year seems to get better. The birthday banner, the friendliness, the atmosphere & view from the balcony, and the superb food, great choice and quality of all the dishes. The tapas selection is wonderful and adds a different dimension to normal restaurants. The best restaurant in Paignton! Would highly recommend.

What a truely lovely evening! thankyou for the little extras such as the 'happy anniversary' decorations and the individualised note upon arrival.I had the sirloin...cooked to perfection and the chef accomodated my request to change the chip option...thankyou. Hubby had the seafood platter....always nervous when he does this as he is very opinionated about this dish as it varies so much between establishmnets. Suffice to say, he gave it 10/10...Phew! Sat outside, beautiful location on a warm early evening. Thankyou everyone for making it a special one.
