We arrived without a booking to a packed restaurant but the were very helpful and found us a table for about 30 minutes later. We went for as walk and they phoned us when a table was ready and it was worth the wait!
The food was excellent and the service was efficient and friendly. I will visit again and even make a entourage to eat here again

We were directed to Number 7 by our hosts at Marstan, Craig and Ian. What a terrific place! The staff were so pleasant and helpful, and the food was marvellous. It has the feeling of a comfortable eating hall, and that's what you will do. An additional advantage is that there is a car park directly opposite, unless you are up for a climb up Torquay's steep hills after a lovely dinner.

A beautifully decorated fishy themed Bistro type restaurant.

It was fully booked when we visited and had a great atmosphere.

The fish was cooked to perfection for both starters and mains.

Sticky Toffee pudding dessert was lovely.

Nice wine selection.

Not a fine dining experience but the service was enthusiastic, quick and friendly.

Will be back again soon.

We stumbled across this restaurant late on Saturday night, when most others were closing. We'd already heard it was good, but weren't prepared for just how good! The staff were extremely pleasant and informative. They were actually due to close, but checked with the kitchen, and allowed us in. Even though they squeezed us in, we still got a full friendly service, with the head waiter coming out to show us the various dishes available using the 'catch of the day' ingredients. We had the fish in tempura batter, and it was the nicest and freshest we'd ever tasted. Would definitely go again. Highly recommended. Booking in advance would be recommended, and seating before 9.0pm would give you ample time to enjoy a full menu selection.

Thank Paul and Dawn Y

we went for a 'Special occassion Meal ' on a Saturday night- pre-booked over the Internet chose .6.30 start but absolutely no pressure to hurry and left @8.30
the Specials Board was comprehensive and the platter of the days' catch was explained in full before we chose our meals. Expect to pay min@£25 pp for 2 courses the bottle of champagne reserved was kept at the bar and our glasses were discretely topped up during the meal.
There was a comprehensive list of wines that easily go with most meals at @£20per bottle to chose from.
an all male 'crew' of servers was a nice touch.none seem to be dedicated to only their own tables and nothing was too much trouble.it was a Full House as we left and look forward to our next visit to Torquay and #7
