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

I find myself another year older enjoying a gorgeous meal with my wife. The table is yours for the evening so service is never rushed, perfect for a celebration. As always we are well looked after, the food is excellent and The Orange Tree has become our favourite restaurant for special occasions.

This was our second time at The Orange Tree and , like previously, it was for our wedding anniversary. From the welcome until your taxi is ordered at the end of the night, the whole visit is wonderful. The service is excellent as is the food , and you are made to feel `important` in that the attention to detail... More

First time at this restaurant and it certainly won't be our last. Every course was absolutely delicious with a good selection of wine and desert wines. Service was faultless.

A great place to get dressed up for. The food is very fresh and is classic british/french inspiration. A lovely clam atmosphere allows you to really spend time here and enjoy the food.

We booked this restaurant to celebrate my birthday- it was fantastic! The food was absolutely spot on! All aspects - the welcome, the service, the friendliness,the wine, the food - were exemplary. We have eaten in many local " high end" restaurants including Gidleigh and I would absolutely rate our satisfaction level at least on a par with them and... More

Classy place with excellent food and choices on the menu. Consistently good service with an excellent waitress, who is delightful. Great for a special occasion, or just for the hell of it.

My daughter booked this restaurant to celebrate her birthday. She lives a few hundred yards away and we thought it would not be very good. How wrong we were. Immediately on entering we were welcomed and shown to our table by a lovely young man. Everything about the place was just right for a good evening. The food was really... More

Visited here yesterday (Sunday 24 August). Still in shock about the excellent reviews this place has been given. I was expecting so much but got so little. Took 20 mins to get a drink (we had to ask). Then took another 20 mins for them to take our order (again we had to ask). Atmosphere was awful. Very quiet and... More

We went with friends who have visited this restaurant on three or four occasions when staying in Torquay. We were not disappointed by their recommendation. The food was excellent. Portions were just the right size and of very high quality. Service was very good, too. We loved the atmosphere too: great food in a relaxed but special environment. We will... More
