My wife and I have been to Memories on three occasions this year, with friends. The food is always first class and the husband/wife team that own and run this small restaurant always make you welcome. The menu is varied with excellent fish choices. Prices are reasonable. As it is only open on a Friday/Saturday night, booking is vital. Some... More

My husband and I went for our anniversary meal. Upon arrival a very kind gent explained he was helping out due to staff sickness, and apologised in advance. This put a smile on my face seeing what a considerate person he was. Starter was superb! We waited approx 35 mins for our main meal, but we understood the reason behind... More

To Turners-_9, Never before have I been so upset over receiving a review, unfortunately my wife Hazel was rushed into hospital on Thursday night with a very serious ailment and of course I was by her side all the time, Most places would have phoned there bookings and said that they were closed but I did not want to let...

Another amazing experience in this charming and homely Bistro. It is far more than just an evening out. The food is first class, with locally sourced ingredients. Front of house, well, what can you say about the lovely Hazel? Nothing is too much trouble. Remembering previous visits, and conversations about food, friendly and charming. There is absolutely no rush, the... More

My wife and I have just visited this lovely Bistro restaurant situated in a nice pedestrian precinct in St Marychurch, Torquay. Parking is no problem as many spaces can be found in nearby residential streets. I thought the ambience was great with lovely interesting décor and layout. It is quite a small place with I believe 22 covers, not too... More

We visited last Friday 26 September for our wedding anniversary. As usual, it did not disappoint. Hazel's hosting, Gordon's food, 2nd to none. Such good value for money. Most pubs in Torbay charge more for their menus and it's not a patch on the delicious food, sauces and wonderful intimate atmosphere. The wine is of excellent quality and not overpriced.... More

I'm in agreement with the others...this restaurant is CONSISTENTLY good. This time I came as a party of 4. Everything is made with love by Gordon from scratch. The latest gluten-free edition to the menu is DIVINE: Sticky toffee pudding with ginger. It is light yet deeply tasty, and filled with little golden nuggets of gingery deliciousness that warmly caress... More

My wife and I have been eating at memories regularly for at least 10 years, and our opinion is that the food is consistently excellent. The meats and fish are cooked to perfection, and I would particularly recommend all the home made starters puddings and sauces. A further bonus is the very acceptable wines (no plonk) which are at non... More
