Fine foods

Great service, professional staff. Quiet location and the food (all 3 main courses) were amazing! Those looking to visit be sure to try the duck in red wine jus.

A very pleasant... More

Visited 22/8/15 with family to celebrate our son's 40th birthday. My wife and I have been fortunate to eat in some high end restaurants over the years and the Orange Tree is right up there with the very best. This is a very intimate establishment that just feels so right. The staff were very attentive and friendly. As for the... More

The best restaurant in Torquay for fine dining. The quality and presentation of all courses was sublime. Waiting staff were attentive but not overpowering. They all "chipped" in to help - even one of the owners. Not the most expensive meal we had in Torquay, but the best.

from the moment we walked in, to the surprise end, we couldn't fault it. The crab bisque was wonderful, as was the rest of the meal. A truly lovely experience.

We dont get chance to go out for meals to often nowadays as we have young children but in the last few years we have visited 3 michelin star restaurants (Purnells, Sat Bains(2 star) and the elephant) and we both agreed that the 2 courses we had here were better than...
