Really enjoyed our meal at Bistro 7. Our booking was well managed by staff to allow time for a drink in the relaxing upstairs bar before an unturned and hugely enjoyable meal in the restaurant. Lovely fish and seafood, well prepared and nicely served. A little pricey but absolutely worth it.

Informed my colleagues had booked No. 7 I was prepared for a let down. An extensive fish menu sure, but what do they have for me? A great sirloin of beef as it turns out, the peppercorn sauce was as good as any and the service was just wonderful. I'm a beef not fish guy but I'd go back to... More

Have today visited No 7 fish restaurant for lunch with my husband and my sister. We all had different dishes and they were all excellent. The staff were helpful and friendly and the atmosphere relaxed. I would love to go again next time we visit Torquay and would definitely recommend it.

Visited in a group of 8 and couldn't fault a thing. The fish was to die for, as were the accompanying chips, vegetables and salad. The staff were friendly and attentive and the atmosphere was great. A must for fish lovers staying in Torquay, but sure to book in advance, because it gets really busy. If I had a criticism,... More

Lunch is from 12:15 1:45 but check the website first. A complete menu of starters and mains to choose from. Portion sizes good. Service pleasant and reasonable. Food cooked fresh so you may wait a bit after ordering. Battered fish (COD) light and juicy. Mussels were a bit small but fresh. Good spot. Lots of seating. Reservations excepted.

Small charming restaurant almost on the water which had our expectations up about the freshness of the seafood. We had lunch and chose the starter with a mix of mussels, king prawn and scallops - wow should have gone for the main course version. Light on the butter, tangy sauce with garlic and absolutely perfectly cooked. Main was three kinds... More

Our last day in Torquay and we thought we'd try again to book here (having been fully booked everytime we rang), and luck behold we were given an early table for my family of three - two adults and a 3 year old. Well, what can i say it was superb. They know their fish, the meal was exceptional and... More
