“Excellent traditional restaurant serving contemporary english cuisine.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 14, 2013

Having been recommended this restaurant we were disappointed not to be able to get a table when we walked in on the first day of our holiday, so immediately booked for the following evening. The staff were very friendly and nothing was too much trouble. The food was excellent and we will definitely return.

“Superb Restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 11, 2013

Went to Devon for a short break and wanted somewhere special for a meal researched TripAdvisor for the area and found the Orange Tree, rang up 8 days before setting off on the off chance of getting a table. pleasantly surprised to be offered the last table for 2. What can I say this was an excellent choice the food,service and hospitality was exceptional. We were even given advice on where to park since it's limited road parking, but there is a car park a short walk away. If your looking for a special restaurant then go ahead and pick the fruit of the Orange Tree :-)

“Fabulous evening”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 8, 2013

We read about this restaurant in a magazine and were attracted by the emphasis on local produce so gave it try on our last night in Torquay. The food was excellent - we both had the crab bisque and thought it one of the best we've eaten apart from at michelin starred places. My gnocchi was an excellent vegetarian dish with a good balance of flavours.

Worth a visit for a special occasion as there is only one sitting which makes for a relaxed evening. The meal was not cheap but defintely worth the money. I also liked the extras such as good homemade bread and petit fours.
