Food cooked fresh and absolutely delicious. In town centre and we were only diners mid week for dinner. In fact the lights were off when we arrived so we thought they were closed. Wasn't a great ambience, however, the food made up for that. Top quality ingredients and fantastic chef. If you are looking great food then highly recommended.

We regularly visit the Palm Tree for breakfast & dinner, and have also had lunch & coffee here a couple of times. This restaurant is just what Paignton needs to inject that little something extra into the choices available in the town. Always a warm welcome, great menu selection and well cooked, thoughtfully presented food. Good wine choices as well.... More

Was so glad we listened to the prior reviews. This was a great night out where they were having a really delicious tasting menu. Fantastic food, great friendly service and the steak was amazing and cooked perfectly. I wouldn't have picked it out, likely wouldn't have gone down the street not knowing anything about Paignton, but I'm so glad we... More

Turned up on a whim on a Saturday and they sorted a table for us. One of the best steaks I've ever had. Good wine list and reasonably priced. Highly recommended.

Always come here when on holiday, it's a bit of a hidden gem, but please come and give it a go. Our steaks were done to perfection, and although there was no cheeseboard on dessert menu, the waiter made one up for me which was excellent. The chef (Kurt) is brilliant and matches his foods , dressings and sides superbly.... More

My wife and I were looking for somewhere to eat on the way to the cinema on a rare evening out. We ordered burger and fillet steak. Both were good quality, well cooked and well presented. A really enjoyable meal with good service.
