My husband and I have just had a quality steak meal at the Palm Tree. A guest that stayed with me told me about the chef's special of two rump steak meals and a bottle of wine for £25, so after reading the reviews we thought we would have a meal. We both really enjoyed the steaks, lovely sauces and... More

We saw this restaurant online when looking for somewhere to eat because we don't live in Paignton. The menu seemed nice and then I read the reviews on Trip Advisor so we decided to book. The restaurant is small and very personal. The waitress had a great personality. The food was fantastic. My wife even said that she had fallen... More

We went here with friends from London last week, we got together in Paignton so none of us had a clue where to go to eat. Our friends have a one year and four year old so we had to take it into account also, anyway I'll stop rambling and get on with the review. What drew us to Palm... More

Found this restaurant by chance, it is only a short walk from the front. The food was lovely, drinks were well priced and service was first class. We were a group of four adults and four children and everyone really enjoyed the evening. It is a lovely touch when the proprietor/chef comes out and asks how you enjoyed the meal.... More

A friend recommended stopping here for a bite recently and I have to say she now frequently visits. The menu is extensive and clearly all made fresh. The wine list is simple but tasty. The food was rather large in portion size but with attentive staff and efficient service you couldn't ask for a better place to grab your lunch... More

Struggled to find anywhere to eat whilst on holiday and finally found this place on the last night. It is now my new favourite restaurant! Everything was home made, great quality, great service. Not only was the waitress overly helpful but even the chef came over to check that the food was ok and explained how it was made. What... More

We went in tonight at 7.30pm with three other tables in occupation. My first impression was that the place was unorganised. The waitress seemed nervous and uncertain. We sat down and were handed what could only be described as very tired menu covers (does not fit with branding of business). We ordered our food, each of us having sliders but... More
