We have just returned from a week in Torquay, and on our last evening we visited the Orange Tree, we visit each time we go to Torquay. This is a wonderful restraunt, a great atmosphere, very attentive staff. We had another wonderful meal, a gastronomic masterpiece. If you want the whole round eating experience try this Devon Gem.

Made prior reservation for 10th June by e-mail. Turned out to be the best meal of our holiday so much so we booked again for the Friday evening before our return home. If you like fine dining, good service, relaxing atmosphere this is the place you must visit

The dining area is attractively decorated, has good table spacing and presentation (white linen, candle, flower) and gentile ambience created by the subdued background music. Starters - the crab bisque with scallops was delicious. Mains - the (boneless) lemon sole with shrimps was beautifully cooked with... More
