The word fish in the title is usually the kiss of death for most restaurants. But not for Number 7. I've been going here for many years and it's always a pleasure. It starts with the mouthwatering menu, ranging from oysters to lobster, and ends with the warm glow of a fabulous food experience. This is down to the consistently... More

We treated ourselves to some nice restaurants on our honeymoon and this was one of the best, the food was delish! Possibly the best fish I have ever had, everything was great - food, drink, service, atmosphere, location!

This lovely bistro had been recommended to us and we weren't disappointed! The service was fabulous from booking to paying the bill. The food was outstanding. My teenage son even tried the oysters! Really lovely place.

This is in my view the top restaurant in Torbay by a mile. It has been serving fish in the world class way it should be for over 21 years. It is unpretentious and all about fresh wonderful food. All the excellent reviews sum up what it has delivered every time for over two decades. Previous reviewer is right, they... More

We had to eat here early because it gets booked up so quickly! Book in advance is my first tip! The staff were very professional, particularly appreciated being shown the fish on a tray and being told how they were going to be cooked and served. Had garlic bread starter with olive and anchovy spread, which was huge! Wasn't expecting... More

We have just had our third visit in as many nights and have thoroughly enjoyed each evening, booking again each night for the next. We were looked after extremely well by Paul and, in fact, all the staff. The food speaks for itself - the freshness, the variety, the simplicity, yet the wonderful taste. We can't recommend this restaurant highly... More

Great lunch at No 7 Fish Bistro in Torquay. Tempura battered fish with dips to start. Main courses of Brill that were brilliant. Tasty desserts of chocolate mousse cake/sticky toffee pudding were the perfect end to our meal. Must also mention the glasses of champagne that we had with lunch...Deutz is delicious... Always great service and certainly the best fish... More

Wonderful food, really good service and great atmosphere. Really enjoy trying the fish we cannot get in our local restaurants. Highly recommend the Brill and Skate wings. We love this restaurant :-)

Excellent service, innovative menu, wide choice of seafood available. Delicious meal: scallop starter and plaice stuffed with salmon in cheese sauce. Vegetables were golden beetroot, finely chopped cabbage and leeks - all cooked to perfection.
