I went to this restaurant last night with my husband for my birthday. The food was beautiful, they even added a sauce to my steak that wasn't on the menu. Very tasty, served hot with superb presentation. Plentiful servings and delicious. The staff were very attentive, friendly and happy. At the end of the evening I got a lovely plate... More

having used and enjoyed the orange tree on previous occasions for special events we were looking forward to a really good evening but sadly everything from the menu (not very exciting) to the food (starters were mediocre, fish slightly over cooked, veg disappointing) was not up to standards I'd expect from a restaurant of this quality. sadly we would not...

Four of us spent New Year's Eve at the Orange Tree this year and had a fabulous meal with superb service. This was a special meal for us which we'd booked beforehand and pre-chosen our food, but we're looking forward to coming back on other occasions to try out the normal menu!

Dined as a couple 30 December 2014 having booked off the strength of previous Tripadvisor reviews, very glad to say those reviews were correct. From start to finish this had to be one of if not the best dining experiences we have ever had. Tucked neatly into one of the back streets up from the harbour this has to be... More

The food was very good and plenty of it, service was too slow bearing in mind that only 4 tables were occupied. The waitress was lovely as was the young waiter. If the restaurant and toilet facilities had a little updating performed this would be a really nice restaurant as the chef can clearly do his job to a high... More

Six people, including two vegetarians, explored the menu and everyone was happy. Good food, good service. Slightly daunting on arrival on a Saturday evening, place quite full but very quiet. Obviously a weekly outing for silver haired stressed men who looked as though maybe they worked for the council, and their botoxed, sequinned dressed partners. Not a lot of conversation... More

we have eaten here several times and it never fails to disappoint us. The food is superb and cooked to order. Try the filet steak. It's the best I have ever had. The staff are what really makes this restaurant stand out from the crowd. They make you feel at home and are genuinely interested in you as their guests.... More

The resturant is in a quite area or Torquay you will be greeted with a smile and warm welcome. The menu is a delight with plenty of choice food cooked to order. There is a very good wine selection. The service is excellent . The food cooked to perfection and you can expect a wonderful plate of food.
