Excellent quality food and a lovely atmosphere. Sat inside but was almost preferred to outside as it was a bit of a squeeze. Staff were lovely and friendly too.

Party of 8 visited during a busy evening in August. The restaurant was highly recommended and from first contct, booking the table, making a change and on to the evening itself, the service was excellent.

All the dishes our party had were superb and well presented and the fresh fish was just amazing !

Two Vegans in our party also enjoyed their food and the overall experience.

We visited TJs this evening and we had such a beautiful meal with a beautiful view,I had to give it 5 stars!
We were seated outside overlooking the harbour and pier, weather was warm but we we were offered blankets if we felt chilly which was a lively touch!
The food was so fresh and perfectly cooked. I highly recommend the calamari to start. The mains- I had the freshly caught seabass with beetroot and samphire, and my husband had the rump of lamb. Delicious!
Wine reasonably priced and nice choices, and Leanne was fantastic too

We highly recommend this restaurant, and would return if/when we return to Devon in the future

We're in Torquay for the week & due to everyone being on staycation I thought we'd best book some restaurants- prooved not so easy but we managed to get in at TJ's, how lucky we were.
The food was simply fantastic, we both had hake, option 1 & 3, just WOW, then we shared 3 desserts- utterly superb.
If we come back to Devon we will definitely be back- OUTSTANDING!!!
