Everything that is said on the Number 7 Fish Bistro website is understated. They are far better than what the casual website visitor would conclude. The menu choice is as broad as seafood can get. Some very satisfying chalkboard entries that represent produce locally sourced on the day. Excellent plus. The wine list is larger than advertised and the prices... More

An excellent choice of really fresh fish here, though the prices are pretty high. The service was very good, apart from a rather glum waitress. We'll definitely be back!

I'm not going to repeat my review of made this time last year but simply to state that after a year absence we are so glad we made the decision to return here whilst near Torquay. Just the same excellent service and food as the last time and our only regret was we couldn't fit in any dessert. First class!... More

We had a shellfish platter for two and it was great choice. Fresh fish tasty with a good ale beer. The place was full at lunch but service was nice and attentive, fast. We even got to say hello to our live crab:)

We were wandering around the harbour looking for a place to eat (the harbour being about the only spot with anywhere decent in central Torquay these days) and stumbled on this restaurant - and are VERY pleased we did! It was bustling (a good sign) so we had to wait 30 minutes for a table, which was pleasantly done in... More

Fabulous seafood restaurant. We didn't really know that much about the types of fish but the waiter presented a lovely platter of various seafood and explained all about the individual fish, textures and how it was cooked. So helpful which made it so much easier to order.

Thank cranmore17
