Local Restaurants Near The Torcroft 

Torquay has a wide choice of great restaurants, many within a short walk from The Torcroft. One of our closest restaurants is rated No.1 on TripAdvisor - Small World Tapas. Another restaurant within a few minutes walk is Pierre le Bistrot. That restaurant is in a brand new building on the sea-front called Abbey Sands Crescent, which also houses half a dozen nice places to eat and drink. 
The four restaurants below are our top choices, selected for their quality of food, wines and service. We have personally experienced them and can recommend heartily. We recommend booking in advance of your stay, to avoid disappointment. 
No.7 Fish Bistrot - If you love fish and seafood, do not hesitate - head for No.7. The food is outstanding, the service fabulous and the atmosphere wonderful (quite European!). Great wine bar upstairs with a view onto the harbour. It's not the least expensive place in town, but worth every penny. Ask for Paul. 01803 295055. www.no7-fish.com 
The Orange Tree - This restaurant will ensure you have a memorable experience (we should know, we had our anniversary there!). A more traditional and luxurious environment with outstanding cuisine and great wines. 01803 213936. www.orangetreerestaurant.co.uk 
Richies (South Indian) - A small and intimate restaurant in the centre of town run by a delightful couple Johti and Christopher who take pride in their food, which is excellent; fragrant and light dishes that are truly full of flavour. A must are the Dosas which are like a crispy Indian pancake, filled and covered with a delicious sauce - just great! Tel 01803 298095. 
Maha Bharat (Indian) - Dont be put off by the exterior of the restaurant front (rather 1970's!) as this is probably one of the best Indian restaurants in the area. It's easy to reach just up from the Harbour on Torwood Street. The Bengali/Indian food is freshly prepared, not too heavy and delightfully spiced. Try the excellent Indian Sauvignon blanc. 01803 215541 or 215580. www.maha-bharat-torquay.co.uk

If you fancy authentic French bistro style meals this is the place for you. A bar is on the ground floor and the main tables are on the first floor and the outdoor balcony with superb views over the bay. Modest prices for good food mean it is popular, so book ahead for a table. Highly recommended.

Las Iguanas is the latest new restaurant to find a home in the Abbey Sands building on Torquay's seafront. Their ethos is refreshingly simple. They bring authentic South America to every table. Busy atmosphere.

Rockfish is a recent fish and chip shop owned by celebrity chef Mitch Tonks. It is down on the harbour; It is not a place for a long evening of intimate fine dining; It is family friendly and there is a takeaway section as well. Very good, fresh fish and chips or grilled fish according to the daily catch.

The Visto Lounge has a large, themed restaurant and bar inside and cafe tables outside. Bistro type food that you order from the bar. We think it has become a Torquay favourite.
