On a Tuesday Night in late September my wife and I followed TA advice and came here for an evening meal noting in passing that three potential competitors, all well up in the TA ratings were respectively; closed for the night, closed permanently and closed for a two week holiday. Whilst the Palm Tree looks modest and unassuming the reality... More

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
