We booked a long weekend in Torquay and wanted somewhere good to eat. This place served cocktails in the lounge at the front and had a restaurant behind the bar and down a few stairs and seemed what we were looking for. We were met by a lovely young lady at the bar who made us some great cocktails and... More

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.
