We had looked at The Orange Tree when staying in Torquay previously, but always felt the prices were high. This year we decided to 'push the boat out' and give it a try. We were not disappointed at all. The food was excellent (superb Crab Bisque!), beautifully presented along with courteous sevice. Our only slight complaint would be that the... More

Called in late , and lucky enough to get a table for two on a busy night. Quality, presentation and wonderful flavours. Not cheap, but you get what you pay for. Looking forward to returning again.

Two vegetarian daughters and I went here for dinner some time ago. It was November and fairly quiet and we were fussed over like family. Food good with decent veggie options, not just the usual omelettes, goat's cheese and risotto. Comprehensive wine list. It was one daughters birthday and her dessert plate was complete with piped Happy Birthday and sparklers.... More

Booked based on the trip advisor reviews and a recommendation from the Meadfoot Bay Hotel. As advertised it was worth its 'Excellent' rating, a superb evening with well cooked and presented food topped with a some very professional customer service. All of this was both incredible value and a definite note to self to come back and enjoy it again... More

We had some trouble finding 'The Orange Tree' so if (like us) you're from out of the area take a map, because it's situated down a side road. In this tiny restaurant there's only about twelve tables with just the one sitting per evening, serving some of the best food I've had in years, so as several others found out... More

We had an excellent meal at the Orange Tree Restaurant recently. The food was amazing (the white onion soup was gorgeous - I've never had such tasty soup) and the service great. The waitresses were attentive but not intrusive and we didn't feel rushed. It's only a small restaurant and isn't cheap but it's well worth a visit and we... More

I had the crab bisque which was the best seafood soup I have ever eaten anywhere. The pork main course was excellent too and the others in our party all said the same. Look forward to returning there soon.

This restaurant has a very relaxed atmosphere and gives you plenty of time between each course as having booked your table it is yours for the night.Certainly a fine dining experience and worth a visit.

We have just returned from 6 days in Torquay. It was my Birthday on the 28th, so we booked at the Orange Tree, this is not our first visit, and won't be our last. From ringing to book, to leaving the restaurant was just perfect. When you arrive you are treated like a friend, the table is yours for the... More
