A group of us had booked a table here for a meal and a get together. Because there were eight of us we had preordered our starters and mains so our service was prompt. All of the food was excellent; not wishing to sound condescending but for hotel food it was exceptional. The menu offers a range of dishes to... More

Average - this is not really a Bistro in the true sense of the word so manage your expectations. There are limit opening hours for food so if you're staying in the adjoining hotels make sure you ask for opening times as Monday and Tuesday's don't serve food in the evening. Food is average, not even as good as most... More

Was staying at the Carlton hotel which the Aztec bistro is part of,so thought we'd try it out of convenience, the staff are very friendly and helpful the food is ok but would be better in my personal opinion if they didn't put pepper on the chips and the mushrooms! I'm not a lover of it so to me it... More

We arrived at the hotel after being on a packed train for about 3 hours with no refreshments so headed straight here after checking in. After a 30 min wait our baguette and burger arrived. However it was delicious if not very pricey !

We are locals in Torquay and are members of Aztec Spa. We often have a drink in the bistro after swimming and every time we go they haven't got something that we ask for! No marshmallows for the hot chocolate, coffee machine not working, no Prosecco. We decided to try for a meal tonight, what a mistake! Over an hour... More
