The service and quaity of food is faultless. This is a must for us every time we visit Torquay. The menu selections are creative and the food is well presented. The staff very professional but in a very relaxed and welcoming way. It's a real pleasure to dine here and I cannot recommend it highly enough.

Having eaten here about 5 years ago, but having visited Torquay several times since, I wasn't sure why we had never revisited Orange Tree. We decided to book on the spur of the moment, and were allocated an early table. The food was fantastic! Why we hadn't gone there again after the first visit, I do not know! The starters... More

Found the orange tree when I sorted by best rated restaurants in torquay on trip advisor. Booked two months in advance, glad i did as the place was packed. Service was attentive but not intrusive. Waitress was excellent at describing/recommending dishes. Expensive but totally worth every penny. Well done!

We visited this restaurant July 19., and the immediate feedback is that we got the worst table in the upper part of the restaurant. Here there was no ventilation at all, and all the heat from both the rest. and the kitchen got here. It was over 34 degrees C, and we could not enjoy the meal at all! The... More

Read the reviews about this restaurant and booked before visiting. It is in a good central location set back from the main roads. The restaurant is spotless tables, cutlery and glasses immaculate. The food was outstanding, beautifully cooked and presented. Good use of local fresh ingredients. The staff were friendly and attentive. The wine was not overpriced and the cost... More

The food was just amazing and the service was very attentive without being in your face! I have to say the creme brûlée was the best I have ever had. Well... More
