An intimate little restaurant with great personal service. Nothing is too much trouble. A great selection of freshly caught fish cooked simply so delicious. Sensible prices too. Will definitely revisit.

Have been here three times with various friends who are all very regular customers ! The food is simple and good. The atmosphere quiet and welcoming. I particularly like the policy of not taking large parties. The good reputation is reflected by the fact that one needs to book WELL in advance to get a table. Highly recommended.

Plan ahead and book in advance, it's so good it's well booked up. Terrific little atmospheric restaurant serving well cooked food, and offering great friendly service. Privately owned, and it shows. Perfect place for cosy meal for two or a small party. Highly recommended. Remains top of my list for places to eat in torquay.

Our first visit to this great little restaurant but it won't be our last. Excellent food cooked to perfection, with the best homemade desserts I have ever tasted! Friendly service and a relaxed and warm atmosphere. Perfect.

Visited on several occasions, never been disappointed. The owners Gordon and Hazel are always so welcoming and the food is always cooked to a very high standard and beautifully presented. I eat out regularly and this is one of my favourite restaurants.

Dined at this lovely friendly restaurant on Friday. We have visited many times and as always we were warmly greeted by Hazel. The food is of an excellent standard and nothing is too much trouble especially as I have a dairy intolerance. It is always a pleasure to eat at Memories and we are looking forward to our next visit.... More
