This is really such a fabulous small place, with great well cooked food. Hazel is always so welcoming and her husband is busy in the kitchen cooking. Only opens Fri and Sat and has limited number of tables, so you have to ensure you book well in advance. We just love coming here, as we know we will g great... More

This was our first visit and we went with friends who have been there before. Hazel does a fantastic job keeping the food and drinks coming. Gordon, we did not see, but he obviously works just as hard in the kitchen. His cooking skills are second to none. The four of us mostly chose different things from the menu and... More

Last Saturday was our second visit to Memories, which had been originally recommended to us by a friend. Needless to say, the meal, service and evening were all as good as the first time. Hazel provides a wonderful ambience and makes you feel very special. Gordon's excellent cooking must be tasted to be believed and is so filling! Andy and... More

Hazel & Gordon, thank you very much for a wonderful evening at your restaurant last night. One of the friendliest welcomes I've ever received in a restaurant, which was so nice having walked 16 miles from Exmouth to get to you! The garlic prawns were huge, plentiful, cooked to perfection and VERY tasty. The bread was perfect for mopping up... More

Visited Memories again last week and we were not dissapointed, great food and atmosphere, we had a great time and cannot wait for our next visit. We both had the catch of the day which was Brill, the fish was perfectly cooked and we followed this with Gordons home made bread & butter pudding and cheese and biscuits Yummee.

I can't say that this is the best restaurant in Torbay... simply because I've not eaten in EVERY restaurant in Torbay, but if there IS a better one than Memories Bistro in St. Marychurch, Torquay, than it must be pretty damn spectacular! I have enjoyed several visits to Memories Bistro over the last few years; with my wife, family and... More

We had not been to memories before and we are kicking ourselves. Right on our doorstep is a gem of a place with food that I really did not want to stop eating so I purposely slowed my eating rate down. There were 6 of us on Saturday evening (sorry for being a little late, from someone who never is!!!)... More
