Nice food, but contrary to the headline of a single seating policy without pressure, we found on a couple of occasions we felt a bit rushed. At the beginning of the meal, my wife and I were still perusing the menu, with them open in front of us, but were asked for our order. We had only been in the... More

This was a fantastic place to celebrate a 60th birthday with family ranging in age from 91 to 2. The friendly staff handled the unplanned arrival of the toddler well, quickly re-organising the seating, and made us feel very relaxed and comfortable. Everyone enjoyed the dishes they chose. The sea bream with cucumber and pancetta was the most popular starter... More

Visited last night on a special birthday weekend away and had a delicious meal again as always. Crab bisque starter was superb and fillet steak with foie gras main was gorgeous. As mentioned in previous reviews you get what you pay for! Can't wait to go back soon...

Year after year the Orange Tree continues to serve up some of the finest dishes In Torquay. Our visit on Friday did not fail either . A starter of the most delicate Crab Bisque with Scallops was nothing short of stunning ! A plate of pork with black pudding and apples was equally mouth watering. Service from Sharon and the... More

We were stopping I've in Torquay on way to Cornwall and was recommended to try this place. The atmosphere was excellent, the food superb and the staff incredibly attentive - but not intrusive. I had the fillet steak with he blue cheese sauce and it was amazing!

The Orange Tree is one of the better restaurants in Torquay, I have visited a few times with my partner, usually on a Saturday night. The food and service is very good, nice touches with a choice of fresh bread rolls. The restaurant is slightly formal, particularly for Torquay and most suited to couples rather than groups of friends.

My wife and I celebrated her birthday and were made very welcome from all the staff. The food was exceptional. The fillet steak was wonderful, as was the Monkfish. When my wife's desert was served, the chef made the effort to write in chocolate on the plate [happy 60th birthday] which really made my wife's evening. Thank you again to... More
