I hadn't visited Jingles for a couple of years and my children (18 & 21) had never been so I booked a table for 8pm. When we arrived, the restaurant was very busy but our table for 3 had been given to a table of 5. I was ok about this... we all make mistakes so I told them not... More

Whilst in Torquay, we decided to try this restaurant for a change. We had reserved a table, as it always seems to be busy. Waiting time was minimal, and we were quickly served. The atmosphere was great, as was the food. The waitresses were very helpful, particularly as one person required a particular meal not on the menu. Nice and... More

I visited here this evening with a friend, we were welcomed into the restaurant by the pleasant waiting staff. Once seated me and my friend ended up chatting for quite a while but did not feel at all rushed to order. The menu had a great variety of food on offer, for a reasonable price when compared to dining in... More

We arrived at nearly 10pm and nothing was too much trouble. I ordered the beef nachos and they were the best I have ever eaten. Staff were polite and efficient

After pretty much having the weekend from hell in Torquay (thanks to the not so grand hotel - see my next review for that humdinger!) we decided to eat out on our last night. Our time trusted usual, Tiger Bills was full and so we ventured a little up the road - we overlooked the italian accross the way -... More

The worst food I have ever ordered, for a so called Mexican restaurant the food was like animal slop... No flavour, thrown on your plate and not to mention the disgusting service. If you want to enjoy your experience in Torquay as I did please stay away from this place.... Go to Amici across the road amazing food and great... More

Bar staff having a rose and beer while on the job. Some young man sat by the distracting the bar staff all night. Seems... More

My partner and I decided to eat here for our evening meal as we are both huge fans of Mexican quinine and I have to say, everything about this place is amazing! Food and service was of a very high standard. My partner had the beef chimichanga and I had a combo selection and we were both very impressed. Really... More

Visited Torquay for a week's holiday in August 2014 and ate at Jingles after a recommendation. Enjoyed it so much we came back a couple of days later and our experience was faultless once again. The decor is great; the place is really vibrant and colourful, the only negative being that this doesn't extend into the toilets which could do... More

Amazing food, highly recommend chimichanga and the Nachos starter, the prices are reasonable for the portion sizes, I would recommend that if you are going to have a starter, unless you have an enormous appetite, you should share as by the time the main comes you could be pretty full.
