“Creative & well presented”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 29, 2013

Quite understand why it has top spot in Torquay. Good menu & creative presentation. Try to avoid the table under the air vent in the wall (in the winter months anyway) as it was a bit draughty !

“The most amazing food EVER !!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 17, 2013

We have been coming to the organge tree for some years now and it just gets better and better. The best restaurant by a country mile in the bay !!!
I bring my customer and suppliers and they go away so so happy and want to return in their own, sometimes bringing down their families !!!

We had a table for 8 and the service for Sharon and Bernd was fantastic, allways near and so attentive. Wether you are entertaining, celebrating a special occasion or quiet meal for two....it's the best in the west !!!

See you soon.....

“Brilliant Brill and a vegetarian feast...”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 6, 2013

Our latest visit to the Orange Tree Restaurant was once again a great success with delicious food and excellent service throughout the evening. This is our favourite restaurant for dinner in Torquay. The surroundings are attractive and you are made to feel very welcome from the minute you arrive. Our soups were both top notch particularly the crab bisque that came with scallops. The homemade bread is excellent. We enjoyed the intermediate sorbet course with its alcoholic kick. Main courses were Brill with crayfish tails and a wonderful mushroom risotto with filo parcels. Only one of us could manage a dessert and had a grapefruit sorbet which was so refreshing. We finished off with coffee and petit fours. The wine list is excellent and has wines from around the world. We had some lovely champagne and a bottle of wine from the Alsace and they made the meal very special. All in all this is a "must dine at" restaurant which I can recommend without hesitation.
