Had a wonderful evening on 16th March with family and friends.
Food was excellent with many comments saying it was the best they had had.
The staff were fantastic, especially James who had been my husbands main contact.
I will definately be coming back even if it's just me and hubby. Thank you Kathy and all your staff once again for a great evening that I shall remember for many years to come.

Delicious Delicious Delicious!!
Food was gorgeous and very well portioned..
Cocktails very well priced and the cocktails waitress was lovely and very happy to create me a cocktail when they didnt have what i wanted on the menu.
We had the starter of bread and olives and it was yummy, bread still warm
I had the west country chicken and was so disappointed that i was too full to finish it all
my gf had the duck and from the noises she was making she definitely enjoyed it lol
meat practically fell of the bone.
We shared a trio of small desserts which were gorgeous and jus right after a heavy meal but you still fancy something sweet.
All for a very reasonable £60

Can either choose to sit upstairs and just have cocktails or the main restaurant is just below.
Lovely atmosphere and definitely worth a visit or 3 while your in torquay.

I saw Hennessy Restaurant and Cocktail Lounge listed on the Gourmet Society website and thought we'd take advantage of the discount on our last evening in Torquay.

The restaurant was quite quiet when we arrived but there was a large party booked in for later that evening, so we decided to skip the starter as we didn't want to eat next to a very large group.

The food was okay - the triple cooked chips were nice but not quite evenly cooked. My lamb was a little bit over cooked, and the steak hadn't been rested prior to being plated. But everything tasted nice, was well presented and the portions were a good size. The berry crumble for dessert was lovely!

As Hennessy is a cocktail lounge, I tried one of their cocktails - very nice and reasonably priced.

The service was very good throughout the evening - friendly and well paced.

If I decided to go back in the future, I would find out if any large parties had been booked as that would likely impact on my dining experience.

If you have any reason to visit Torquay whether Winter or Summer this is a superb venue. Food Fantastic, Service superb. Cocktails to relish. I even booked my New Year's evening and I live in Portsmouth!! I can't rate it enough. If I win the Lottery I would live near. I have been to many restaurants and paid far more than what they charge. I seriously cannot rate it enough. We came across it acccidently and have been lots of times. My husband even went on his own when he was looking for a business in Torquay.I haven't tried the Sunday Lunch yet!
