We were looking for a great fish restaurant and found it. Nr 7 Fish Bistro was an exceptional experience from start (grilled lobster) to end (lemon sole). We never got to enjoy such a sole. It was cooked to perfection: grilled but still very moist inside and very tender. The lobster was grilled and excellent as well. Staff were all... More

When hubby asked me where I wanted to go for our anniversary meal last night, I answered straight away 'No.7'. We've been 4 or 5 times before and have always come away delighted. The service is about the best we've ever had anywhere; extremely attentive, removing glasses as they're finished and offering to replenish them within seconds. It's also lovely... More

If your anywhere in South Devon and you like fish you need to make the pilgrimage to the No.7 Fish Bistro in Torquay. A family business run by 2 brothers, Paul up front and Oliver in the kitchen, there's something special about this place. It's a humble, rustic and unpretentious setting that seats about 50 covers. The greeting is welcoming... More

We booked a few days in advance of our vist and had to take an earlier time thn we would have liked, because they were so busy. However, as busy as it was, the service was very good and the food was excellent. There is a huge choice of fish on offer, cooked in many different ways and our choices... More

We travel to Devon for a week each year for a family holiday and this restaurant has been a regular occurrence each year for the last 15 years. We love it.

Well, Annon and spouse booked into this little gem for lunch the other day and what a wonderful place this is. The look is very French, dark and intimate, with lots of small blackboards hanging from the walls, with delicious fish and shellfish starters and mains available as you would expect. The choice is huge, in fact we decided to... More
