Although there is only a small selection of vegetables they were all delicious! The option to have as many sausages as you wanted was definitely an extra bonus! The meat was either pork or beef (I would have preferred another alternative) but the meal was lovely! The chocolate brownie cheesecake was a personal highlight and definitely worth a try!

We ate in Hennesy Restaurant and Cocktail Lounge while staying in Torquay for one night break. One of the best meals I' ve ever had in a restaurant. Food was excellent, all the dishes attractively presented, cooked to perfection, efficiently and attentively served. As we both work in the same industry, we loved watching the chefs preparing the food in... More

The food was good, service was grand.. The cocktails were the best in town. I like to drink champagne with dinner but could not resist drinking White Russians with dinner here. For the first time since the 70s the guy made me a WR with the cream sitting on top of the booze. Not seen that since the 70s :-)... More

Had dinner here at the end of May and we were delighted with the quality of food on offer and the standard of the service . Nice menu and the availability of the wine bar for pre or post dinner drinks was an unexpected extra. Prices were very reasonable given the quality of the food.

We booked a table to celebrate a family members birthday. There were about 14 of us. We had cocktails first in the busy cocktail lounge then sat in the restaurant. It's very nicely decorated and great that you can see what the chefs are cooking. Firstly wine was slow coming to the table. Starters were served and one was missing.... More

After visiting this restaurant previously I knew this is where I wanted to go for my Birthday meal again when staying in Torquay. A few weeks before I was disappointed to find out when looking on line at the menu that they had taken fillet Wellington off. I was gutted as this was what I was looking forward too. However... More

12 of us went for a birthday meal. Huge mistake. The restaurant was busy as was the lounge bar. Having to wait for drinks, including more than 20 mins for one cocktail should have rang warning bells. Everything was delayed, drinks, menus, order taking and arrival of food. We noticed that guests of smaller groups were being served more attentively... More

We booked a table on the current 2 for 1 offer. When we arrived the restaurant manager told us the offer had been changed that day and the meals we had expected were not on offer. This was a massive shock considering the Deal was still extensively advertised around the whole restaurant, in the front window and on the website... More
