A great place to get dressed up for. The food is very fresh and is classic british/french inspiration. A lovely clam atmosphere allows you to really spend time here and enjoy the food.

We booked this restaurant to celebrate my birthday- it was fantastic! The food was absolutely spot on! All aspects - the welcome, the service, the friendliness,the wine, the food - were exemplary. We have eaten in many local " high end" restaurants including Gidleigh and I would absolutely rate our satisfaction level at least on a par with them and... More

Classy place with excellent food and choices on the menu. Consistently good service with an excellent waitress, who is delightful. Great for a special occasion, or just for the hell of it.

My daughter booked this restaurant to celebrate her birthday. She lives a few hundred yards away and we thought it would not be very good. How wrong we were. Immediately on entering we were welcomed and shown to our table by a lovely young man. Everything about the place was just right for a good evening. The food was really... More

Visited here yesterday (Sunday 24 August). Still in shock about the excellent reviews this place has been given. I was expecting so much but got so little. Took 20 mins to get a drink (we had to ask). Then took another 20 mins for them to take our order (again we had to ask). Atmosphere was awful. Very quiet and... More

We went with friends who have visited this restaurant on three or four occasions when staying in Torquay. We were not disappointed by their recommendation. The food was excellent. Portions were just the right size and of very high quality. Service was very good, too. We loved the atmosphere too: great food in a relaxed but special environment. We will... More

My boyfriend and I visited the Orange tree for our anniversary and we were definitely not disappointed. Beautiful food, good service and probably one of the best meals out we have ever had! Goats cheese starter was super, lamb and beef mains were perfection and puds were to die for! Overall a lovely lovely restaurant and cannot wait to return!

Took a family member for a birthday treat. They had never been to The Orange Tree before and were delighted with the restaurant from the decor/ambiance, to the service which was excellent, and of course the wonderful food. The crab and king scallop bisque starter was delicious. Highly recommended. All the mains were wonderful, and the desserts (lots had the... More

The food here was simply gorgeous. I dined with 3 friends and we all tried each other's meals - all were superb. The sorbet course was a lovely touch. Staff were friendly and courteous. The goats cheese parcels were melt in your mouth and so was the steak and lamb. Desserts were all amazing, as was the extra dessert with... More
