This is definitely the best fish restaurant in Torquay, and should not be missed if you are a fish enthusiast. There is a wide selection of fish and shellfish, with a tray of fresh fish brought to your table to help your selection. It's all beautifully cooked, and the service is helpful and friendly. We enjoyed mussels, grilled plaice, cod... More

This was our first visit and it didn't disappoint. Excellent fish dishes, either cooked plain or with interesting sauces, and delicious vegetables. Friendly staff and a lovely ambience. We will definitely go again.

We experienced another fabulous meal at No7 this weekend when visiting family in Torquay. Service always excellent and fish dishes are always so fresh and beautifully presented. A fabulous restaurant to visit just by the harbour. We will definitely be returning again.

Let's start with one thing: I only really started eating fish about ten years ago. Before that you could have chased me down the road with a piece of fish! ;-) However, through my visits to Sicily and getting fresh fish I realised that there is some really good stuff out there. Since my mother-in-law moved to Torquay we frequently... More

I have known of this bistro for some time and it's been on my "to do" list for ages. Arriving with three friends we all had starters and mains. I opted for the Mussels Mariniere which were lovely followed by something rather unusual - Monkfish and prawns in a very light and creamy curry sauce. This was truly amazing, I... More

We haven't been to Number 7 for quite while and I'm pleased to say nothing has changed. Excellent and perfectly cooked food it's probably the best meal we have eaten at Number 7. I would recommend to anyone who likes fish, nothing disappointed
