Best fish restaurant!

Eaten here lots of times & it never disappoints. Lots of choice & always varied menu depending upon what fish has been caught. The fish is great as is the service & I think prices are pretty reasonable. I recommend you book as it always busy when we have been in.

Booked for dinner midweek , lucky we did as the restaurant was full most of the time we were there! Very extensive menu with specials on the walls . Just about every type of fish available in all kinds of ways. A waiter comes to your table with a large tray of very fresh fish and shellfish telling you what... More

Loved this restaurant so much, we can't wait to go back. The fish was so fresh, the menu was all on chalkboards, depending what they could buy fresh on the day. My husband and I both had the scallop, king prawn and mussel starter, he followed his meal with John Dory and I had Brill with cannellini beans and chorizo,... More

If you are a fish lover this is the place to go-excuse the pun ! Paul the host explains all the dishes to you and brings out the fish before you order-he will help you with any sauces or dressings you might like too. The staff are all lovely and the food exceptional-make sure you book.

I have only visited Torquay twice but have eaten in this restaurant four times. My views of it being excellent in 2014 are the same as in 2015 and the service is always excellent. The quality of the seafood and shellfish is matched by the knowledge of the staff. Paul especially deserves a mention. In a busy-no-packed restaurant, he manages... More

We spent last weekend in Torquay and having never been there before we searched for a good fish restaurant on here. Having been convinced by reviews we thought we'd give it a go and we're so glad we did as our meal with excellent. We wish we lived nearer as it was that good.

We ate at No 7 Bistro to celebrate our wedding anniversary, having had it recommended by our B & B as my wife doesn't eat meat. We were not disappointed. There was a good menu choice for both of us including many "specials" where the fish was brought to the table for us to inspect. The atmosphere was great, a... More
