Only minor grizzle was our server was pre-occupied being overly attentive to some obviously known and regular customers and we had to get his attention when we wanted to order... read more

We went to this restaurant for a birthday party. We were a table of 6 people. We looked at their web site, to see what it was like, but did not realise that there would be a 10% surcharge for 6 people or more. That put a extra £30 on top of the bill. The food was very nice, and... More

Booked on very high recommendation, we were blown away by the warm welcome and the fantastic menu. Told to ignore the menu and look at the boards, we were shown a tray of wonderful fresh fish, and given a description of how it would be cooked, we would have eaten our way through everything if we could, it was so...

Despite the howling gale outside there were still 15 people enjoying lunch when we arrived at No 7 on Saturday! Brixham Moules to start - fabulous. Followed by Winter Fish Pie - superb. Wine very good. You just cant fault the place for food, wine or service!. Well done to Paul and Ollie. Once again!

Paul & the team (both front of house & in the kitchen) continue to provide great food, wines & service. It is one restaurant that is now part of our itinerary when visiting Torquay. There is now a wine bar upstairs, if it is just a drink that is required (or for pre meal tipples).

This is an exceptional restaurant. The food is amazing. The staff are great. Everything is 100%. My friends were dissapointed that the table clothes weren't white linen, personally the food and wine spoke more than he table clothes.

My husband and I booked a table for our Anniversary and we were very happy with both the service and the excellent food. The restaurant was very inviting and you didn't feel cramped. It was also nice to have the wine bar for before dinner drinks. We will definitely be going back.

Everything was most enjoyable except the bill! If money is no object then fine, but otherwise I suggest you pay attention to the prices. In a lovely relaxed atmosphere infused with delicious cooking smells, one tends to look forward to choosing from the menu and to satisfying your taste buds. We did this but the bill for two was £125... More
