First time at this bistro great food great service hard to make a booking as they are always full advance booking recommended but worth the wait . If you phone and they don't answer leave a number and they call u back looking forward to our visit again best to book before you leave very busy place

OMG! It is always so much easier to go to a chain restaurant as you know the food and for the most part the relative good levels of service that you will get. To go to a small independent can be risky ( that's why you should read my reviews on trip adviser) however for our last night in Torquay... More

Our first trip to Devon in 2015, returned to memories with friends and as usual the food was fabulous, recommend John Dory starter with the lamb to follow. Hazel and Gordon great hosts/chef if you can get in definitely worth a visit.

Four of us had a great meal at Memories on Firday evening. We enjoyed a warm welcome and first class service all evening. The suroundings are a little old fashioned but this seems to add to the charm. The food was excellent. We all had fish starters every one was well cooked and very tasty. Steaks for the main were...

We recently moved to this area and have been trying various local restaurants with mixed results.Went to the Memories Bistro in November to celebrate a birthday and had a lovely evening. The food was delicious and the service was excellent.

It's not often nowadays you receive such a warm and friendly welcome when you enter a restaurant. Hazel makes you feel at home and relaxed from the moment you walk in. The bistro itself is small and cosy and is perfect for this type of venue. We ordered the crab cakes to start which were perfect. Then moved on to... More
