Small World Tapas


Ratings and reviews


Location and contact

Small World is a dream in a pocket size. Our reserved but family atmosphere restaurant is one of the fewest places in Torquay where you can share absolutely everything. Because sharing is loving. And we love food. Quiet place where you can also peek at the kitchen while the Chef is cooking worldwide tapas. Not only Spanish, but from all around the world. We change the menu very often to offer you the best of every country. And if you feel like drinking a country as well we have a selection of wines, local beers, spirits and cocktails. We also have Free Wifi. We are not a chain. We are independent. We are FoodLovers

Had dinner here tonight. We are regular visitors to Spain and Portugal, and the tapas here are better than some we have had in Europe. The octopus was perfectly cooked and complemented with Chorizo. The cod croquettes were creamy and delicious. The morcilla stuffed mushrooms...More
