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 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

Food, service and ambience always of the highest standards. It is a bit pricey so we use it only for special occasions but the price reflect the quality. Superb.

We stayed the first night of a two night break in Torquay in one of the prime Hotels. We were extremely disappointed with the standard of food on the first night and decided to go elsewhere on the second. We found the Orange Tree Restaurant through the tripadvisor site and booked a table. What a lovely restaurant, it restored our... More
