Our History

Matt & Klaudia have been working as a husband and wife team creating some amazing places to drink, eat and party in Torbay for 10 years. Here are some images from the superb places they created.

Premier Cru

Location: Ilsham Road, Wellswood, Torquay

Duration: 2006-2012

Wellswood in Torquay has always been a great area and especially for the ‘village’ feel that the row of shops, Café’s, pub and businesses on Ilsham Road. When an antique furniture store became available, Matt & Klaudia saw the dream start to owning and creating their own cocktail bar and bistro but introducing Premier Cru to the trendy village set up. It was an instant success adding a new place to drink and dine amongst some other fine establishments.

SoHo was born to breathe new life into one of Torquay’s oldest buildings that had many previous incarnations of varying success. This stunning building that was host to Café Sol, Barcode and Treasury to name a few was totally transformed inside and retained many of its classic period features. Under new ownership it is still going strong and has an amazing outdoor decking area.

What was the cellar bar for a pirate-themed restaurant was totally transformed by Matt & Klaudia to create another high quality cocktail bar, Prestige. Another instant hit and so many great nights were had over the 2 year duration until the decision was made to sell and move onto the next project. Prestige is still one of the liveliest bars in town and staying true to its concept of quality drinks and music.

Onwards and upwards… literally! The move to take over the old Boardwalk Cafe overlooking Torre Abbey sands was a dream come true for Matt & Klaudia with a chance to create a really special place with a sea view and be part of the recently completed Abbey Sands redevelopment. After a fantastic year they have just completed renovation of the first floor to create CoCo View. A new bar area with amazing views across the bay.
