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

There's nowhere better in this part of the world for wonderfully cooked fish and shellfish - there are lots of choices on the menu and all are perfect. It's a very busy restaurant and booking is essential. Downsides: they sometimes won't let you book a table for the whole evening as they try and run at least 2 sittings. Also,... More

The menu is all a bit confusing as it's scattered across the 'actual paper menu'; the blackboards (which you can't see from some tables) and the monologue which comes out of the proprietors mouth as he describes a long list of 'Specials'. It's then hard to make a choice as it's hard to remember what the offers were and/or their... More

We were advised by our hosts to book the very popular restaurant. It was certainly full when we went. Love the fact that they show you the fish before you choose. I had the Tempura mixture of salmon etc. Beautiful. Hubby had the John Dory which he said was excellent, Local drinks are reasonable. Very knowledgeable and friendly staff. Give... More

Having found this place on here we thought it would be nice to try while in Torquay. After speaking to a local lady who told us it was the best restaurant in Torquay I rang on a Monday to book and just managed to get ourselves in for that Wednesday evening. It was very busy but we were exceptionally attentively... More

So pleased we got a last minuet reservation here, as the food was fantastic! Service was excellent, atmosphere was great and we will defiantly visit again. Hard to recommend a particular dish, as the ones we had were equally good, but perhaps try something you haven't before.
