Great service.

From the start you received excellent service from the staff. Very attentive, but you would expect nothing less in this small establishment. Food portions are the usual 'gourmet' size. Unfortunately I did not feel that anything was exceptionally better than produced at other restaurants in the... read more

a cut above most places - this lovely and quite posh restaurant up a side street just off the harbour was fully booked on Friday night. Good atmosphere and great service from the staff who are very keen to please. The food was fabulous and though not exactly cheap did represent excellent value. Fillet steak was only £20!!! ....and it... More

My wife and I plus two friends dined at Orange Tree on Saturday night. Our night was extremely enjoyable thanks to the professional and friendly staff and the perfectly cooked and presented food. It will probably be some time to our next trip to Torquay but when we do return we will definitely be dining there. If you are visiting... More

My wife and I plus two friends dined here last night. The Staff were friendly and the atmosphere in the restaurant was great. The food and service were top rate. 10/10 will definitely dine here again, a good excuse to return to Torquay.

Lovely cosy restaurant. Polite and friendly service but very slow. We waited ages for menu, drinks and food courses which was a shame because when it arrived was delicious. the people on next table arrived after us but had finished 2 courses before our starter arrived!! Fish courses were excellent.

My friend and I went to the Orange Tree on our last visit to Torquay in September 2014. Wonderful food and excellent service, it's advisable to book in advance. Some of the Restaurants in London certainly don't match the quality of the Orange Tree, very friendly staff too.

We have been here every year for my birthday and every year we had the perfect experience. Food, service and ambience are up to the London standards of fine dining. Highly recommended.
