We chose this restaurant because it had been well reviewed. Let's cut to the chase; the restaurant is first class, absolutely top notch food. A little difficult to find as the road it is on is like a 'horseshoe' and (of course) we were in a taxi at the wrong end. Only five minutes walk from the sea front in... More

I visited on a Thursday evening with my father and step mother for dinner. They had visited before both with the current and previous owners, but I had never been. I had heard good things about the restaurant from numerous people and it certainly lived up to the good reputation. Having dined at The Elephant previously, I would say that... More

Came here for a family meal. The food was beautiful. However bear in mind it will probably be quantity over quality which some people aren't fond of. However we perfectly enjoyed it. Would definitely recommend a visit and will definitely be returning.

We opted to visit the Orange Tree during our visit to Torquay due the reviews on Trip Advisor. We rang and booked a table a week before our visit. We were greeted warmly when we walked through the door and coats taken. We were shown to our table and menus given. On the table there were some pitted Olives to... More

My sister and I had a truly delicious meal here. We asked for mains as starters and vice versa; this was absolutely no problem at all and they happily obliged. We enjoyed delicious olives and homemade bread which were replenished as often as we wanted. The atmosphere was attentive but not intrusive, comfortable, relaxed and unhurried. What a joy to... More

We had eaten at this place some years ago which was a nice experience but for various reasons we had not been back. Decided to revisit during a recent stay & we were not disappointed. A Saturday night & it was busy but we could not fault the service or the food. Top class in all departments. One of the... More
