Fine Dining

The Elephant
Overlooks the harbour and is a two storey restaurant with the more informal brasserie on the ground floor and the Michelin starred, 'The Room' on the first. The Room was the first restaurant in Torquay to be awarded a Michelin star which it maintains today. Lovely fresh local produce and a real treat.

The Orange Tree
Another of Torquays award winning restaurants.  A fabulous fine dining experience just of the High Street, serving wonderful local fish and meat, it classes itself as an English European restaurant.

Old Vienna
Artisan cuisine with an Austrian touch this is a delightful small (20 seater) restaurant, where – if you a lucky – Werner the proprieter and chef will greet and may even occasionally yodel at you. An experience not to be missed. The food is terrific too.

Fish

Man Fridays
This Lobster and Seafood Restaurant offer the best seafood and fresh fish at reasonable prices, and serving very generous portions (we have never managed a dessert here!). Booking is essential during the busier season, especially if you want a table overlooking Torauay harbour.

No. 7
This could very easily have been in our Fine Dining section. Stunningly fabulous fish, fish and more fish is found here in this bistro style restaurant. They do serve meat – but not much of it - Ed's always too scared to ask - so this is definitely the place for fish lovers.

Tj's Restaurant
Found nestled away in Paignton Harbour with fantastic views, yet very easy to find with good free roadside parking.  They serve both fish and meat and you can eat it in a 'Tapas' style so you can have each dish as a starter or combine them to make a larger meal – or chose from their specials for a more traditional syle meal – either way we love this place and know the fish is always good as we share the same supplier.

Rockfish
This is the latest branch of Mitch Tonks fish restaurants, offering grilled or fried fresh fish, traditional fish & chips and more.

Hanburys - www.hanburys.net
One of the finest independent fish & chip restaurant in the country, and our neighbours.  Located just behind us, Dave Hanbury and his team at Hanburys have been serving fantastic fish and chips for 3 decades, and have won many awards for their commitment to excellence.  Eat in, in their cosy restaurant, or take away and eat on The Downs and enjoy the fantastic view.

Italian

Biancos
This is a firm favourite of ours and offers fantastic Italian food using fresh local ingredients. The Lamb is a must as is the Carpaccio. They also offer a short earlybird menu for Theatre goers.  An intimate and authentic dining experience.

Amicis
A sister restaurant to Bianco's (just across the road) this restaurant is a favourite of our kids. Charlie loves the stone baked pizzas and Emily loves the Antipasti. A great light and airy bistro experience, with sharing platters and great individual dishes.

Gemelli
Lorenzo and Ewa, became our friends after staying with us some years ago with their tiny twin boys. They spoke to us at length about opening up a new business with a young family. Within a year they had opened Gemelli's (translated as Twins), and offer really traditional Italian food in a peaceful setting. The depth of flavour Lorenzo achieves is outstanding and the love for his craft really shows through in his food.

Indian

There are many Indian restaurants in the area, however we feel this is by far the best and most authentic.

Maha Bharat
Fantastic authentic Bengali and Indian Cuisine. This restaurant has a wide range of dishes and are always happy to temper it to suit your taste. Their delicously fresh Naan breads are a firm favourite.

Asian

Kim Saigon
A lovely restaurant offering Chinese, Cantonese & Vietnamese dishes and aim to offer the best examples of this cuisine at competitive prices.
t.01803 213344

Thai Star
We consider this the best Thai restaurant in Torquay with fabulous flavours and a truly authentic taste, in a lovely setting overlooking Torquay Harbour.
t. 01803 297631

Oriental Touch
This is an 'all you can eat' Chinese buffet.  To avoid confusion, children are charged dependent on height. We think the quality is very good for the price – but it does get very busy so we always try to get there within ½ hour of opening. Their are lots of dishes, replenished regularly and their duck and pancakes (weekends only) and salt and pepper squid is delicious, as is their garlic king prawns.

Is it haute cuisine – no, but it is incredibly good value for money, and always a good feed.

Steaks

Cotton Eyed Joes
If you are looking for a great steak then you must visit this themed American sytle Steakhouse Bar & Grill as we have never had a bad one here in 7 years. A great atmosphere, meaty menu and tasty sides.  The kids portions are great too (and very often free!).

These are just some of the restaurants we have tried but we have no means tried them all.  If you have a great restaurant you have visited whilst you have been here please tell us about it.
