After wanting to dine in one of Torquays premier restaurants sadly I was left disappointed. - The heat was excruciating. There was one fan in the room which guests seems to stand in front of to keep cool. In between courses it was a matter if going outside to cool down. They do not offer stand alone fans although said... More

Had a lovely evening here. The food was well presented and full of flavour. Service was quick but not rushed. Staff took an interest and made our evening really special. Would definitely go back.

My first visit for some years and it is better than before. Very comfortable and relaxed atmosphere, totally unrushed. Superbly presented food which was of high quality. Excellent wine list. Thoroughly recommended.

The service and quaity of food is faultless. This is a must for us every time we visit Torquay. The menu selections are creative and the food is well presented. The staff very professional but in a very relaxed and welcoming way. It's a real pleasure to dine here and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Having eaten here about 5 years ago, but having visited Torquay several times since, I wasn't sure why we had never revisited Orange Tree. We decided to book on the spur of the moment, and were allocated an early table. The food was fantastic! Why we hadn't gone there again after the first visit, I do not know! The starters... More

Found the orange tree when I sorted by best rated restaurants in torquay on trip advisor. Booked two months in advance, glad i did as the place was packed. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Waitress was excellent at describing/recommending dishes. Expensive but totally worth every penny. Well done!

Sadly I only get to eat at this restaurant once or twice a year. It get's better every time we visit and we can't wait for our next time. Some great new dishes and wines have been added since our last visit, and I just wish I had the capacity to eat four or five main courses, as the only... More

We visited this restaurant July 19., and the immediate feedback is that we got the worst table in the upper part of the restaurant. Here there was no ventilation at all, and all the heat from both the rest. and the kitchen got here. It was over 34 degrees C, and we could not enjoy the meal at all! The... More
