I booked ahead to ensure a table for my mother and myself for a Monday nite dinner whilst staying at the Imperial Hotel here in Torquay. So glad we booked cos even on a damp dreary Monday nite the place was filled to the rafters of people enjoying themselves in this wonderful place to dine. Family owned and run and... More

This was a bustling place even on a Monday night in mid-October. As its name suggests, it's pretty much all fish on the menu, with great choice of starters and mains as well as a decent wine list. We thoroughly enjoyed it.

An almost bewildering choice of menus, blackboards and visual tray of fish of the day, so just decide what fish you'd like and how you want it cooked as the waiter/ess & it will happen! Superb wine list too, standards haven't changed in a decade or more. As previous reviwers have pointed out, my dad didn't like the manager in... More

Another great meal, wonderful, friendly service and delicious food. Never been disappointed here and cannot recommend highly enough. Expert knowledge of fish, great choice, all fresh and good wines. We have eaten in many restaurants across the world, including some excellent fish restaurants in Boston and New York, but this one is still our favorite.

We went to number 7 after hearing of it for many years. Decor was a bit off putting , plastic table cloths and paper napkins. I know it's supposed to be relaxed but to me that's in the welcome and ambiance, not kitchen table decor. Starters good, but garlic bread with anchovies was presented without any finess. I was disappointed... More

I would have been happy with just the printed menu. But the FIVE chalkboards with specials were pointed out, to be followed by the owner/manager arriving with a tray of even more special seafood dishes. The choice was staggering and unfortunately one can only eat so much! You could eat there for weeks without ever eating the same dish. Need... More

We rang Tuesday afternoon on the of chance that there might be a table free and they managed to get us in at. 630pm. We were shown to our table in the nicely decorated restaurant and all the specials boards were pointed out to us. Along with the menu there were so many choices. The waiter then brought over a...

I visited this restaurant with my wife to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Pre-booking was essential as the restaurant was very busy on a Friday. I asked for a window table and this was provided. We were also phoned the same day to check that we were still going to dine. We arrived a few minutes early to find that our... More

No 7 is a relaxed resturant with some of the best fish dishes to be found. Efficient and friendly service in a popular destination for locals. The fish is obviously carefully selected and customers get the opportunity to see and select their fish choice before it is cooked A bit pricey, but it is the best fish resturant around and... More
