“First choice of my restaurant in Torbay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 24, 2013

Returned to Babbacombe for holiday in early September, and came back to La-Provence but it has changed the name to Peppercorn, thankfully still the same owners and we had a fantastic meal, even better than last time!!! Thank you Ken and Becky for looking after us so well, and I will keep spreading out the words to all my friends and family!

“Don't miss it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2013

This restaurant is worth finding!! On the main road through Babbacombe, only five minutes from Torquay, with parking on both sides of the road just outside. It is small but the food and service excel. All our food was perfectly cooked, fresh fish, enormous fillet steak, beautiful sauces and a lovely selection of perfectly cooked vegetables, oh, and desserts to give up a diet for! Ken the owner and chef and his wife Becki chatted to us afterwards - lovely people. Highly recommended.

“salmon and steak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 25, 2013

A lovely couple, great food, salmon in a peppercorn sauce and steak in a merlot and mushroom sauce. It was a special meal to celebrate our Silver Wedding and it was a great evening.
