fine dining is the Torquay handbook description and in fairness it is, the cost reflecting the standard of cuisine. Staff very friendly. A diverse clientele good for a special occasion if you're looking for a venue in torquay

I have wanted to visit the Orange Tree for quite a while so decided to visit for my son's birthday. Warm welcome from extremely attentive, friendly staff who served in a professional and respectfully manner throughout the meal, faultless service, but, I hate to say it I was disappointed with the food. The John Dory was overcooked and the sauce... More
