Me and my Husband had a meal at this restaurant when visiting in September which we thoroughly enjoyed so when booking our 4 night stay in Torquay for my birthday in April the first thing I done was book a table at Hennessy.
Each night of our stay (apart from Monday as they are closed) we went to Hennessy and sat in the cocktail lounge as we enjoy the atmosphere, comfy seating area and friendly staff. And of course the cocktails! Some nights the bar does seem short staffed and the cocktails can take a bit of time but we didn’t let that bother us, they always offer for you to take a seat and they will bring the drinks straight over to you when ready.
On the Tuesday night (My Birthday) we returned with my mum and dad as well and decided to sit in the bar first which they were more than happy with until we said we were ready. Our table was booked for 8.00 but we didn’t go in until about 20 past which was nice as we didn’t feel they were rushing us. This was probably as it was quiet, not sure if they would of been the same on a Saturday night when busy.
I already knew what I was going to have from last time so once again we shared the red onion and garlic pizza bread and I had the fillet Wellington which again was cooked beautifully. I love it! All of our meals were presented lovely and everyone enjoyed all of their meals and sides. I once again couldn’t resist the trio of chocolate dessert which was as tasty and beautifully presented as I remembered it.
The waitress was friendly, making sure everything was o.k with our meal and making sure we always had enough drinks. I don’t agree with some of the other reviews about the staff as everyone we came across was polite, friendly and helpful.
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this restaurant and know that when I return to Torquay we will always head to Hennessy!!
