We very much enjoyed a family meal with 8 of us choosing from the evening bistro menu. The food comprised excellent ingredients, beautifully cooked and presented. The service was efficient without being obtrusive. A great evening all round - use this place Paignton!

Arrived around 12 for lunch. Chose the window seating area, which had dirty dishes on it. The rather busy waitor had to be prompted several times to clean the table. Several items were unavailable and my daughters choice of dry white wine had run out. The service was extremely slow to say the least. The carbonara was a very small... More

We had heard great feedback about this cafe but when we went at the end of October I was disgusted by the service and manners of the staff including the young man that waiters in there. The food arrived and for the price that you pay is over the top for the small portions you get served, on of my... More

Treated by my daughter to a full English for my birthday last week. The Palm Tree has a very good reputation locally, so was really looking forward to my first visit. Staff were very welcoming and the internal decor pleasant, with an unhurried atmosphere. In terms of quality, this was the finest breakfast I have eaten locally - the sausages... More

Taking out my four year old daughter for our first girlie lunch together I had to think hard where we would go. From the photos and menu this Cafe/bistro looked inviting. Most of the cafés in town don't look that special, and I wanted a special lunch out with my daughter. The Palm Tree was an excellent choice. Lovely lunch... More

The only criticism I have of this place is that it's not fully packed out when it should be. Went for an afternoon lunch with the wife and wasn't disappointed. Service was second to none. I think the owner must have served us as her approach was very warm.. was very friendly and extremely accommodating. I highly recommend the mixed... More

My family and I went there for a evening meal, food was excellent and looked delicious. The staff are friendly and really attentive, I highly recommend this restaurant for both lunch and dinner as my previous trip to Paignton I had eaten lunch there. Definitely best place in Paignton for a meal.
