We had the tasting menu, celebrating a special birthday. The food is amazing! Every course was wonderful. The service was very attentive and we felt very well looked after.

Fantastic restaurant. Beautiful food, very tasty, service excellent from every waitress you encounter, very reasonably priced in a lovely ambience.

Had the crab bisque with scallops - superb starter
Then pork medallions with black pudding and cider hollandaise - incredible
Finished with the selection of deserts, can't go wrong.

What stands out though is the personable service throughout, it's an excellent touch on what otherwise is a fine restaurant.

We booked a table as a couple on Saturday (told we were quite lucky as they had just had a cancellation so we got a last table!!). Once inside we were greeted by a very pleasant lady who showed us to our table. We had the drinks and food menu to look over, and some bread and olives on the table. We chose a bottle of the Marlborough white wine which was really good! Lots of wine on offer too! The food was just outstanding - we had the quail and mushroom starter and also the fish starter. For mains we had the herb crusted lamb and the steak (medium rare with a Devon blue cheese sauce) and both were AMAZING!! We were both so full we couldn't have a dessert each but really wanted to try the sweets, so shared the dessert trio - again this was just perfect. There was a little crème brûlée, chocolate tart and a coconut/lime parfait. The service was spot on too - very attentive without being intrusive. The only bad thing is that we live too far away to be able to visit again soon! This restaurant is definitely right up there and we are so glad we visited. Would recommend this restaurant to anyone!!

We used Trip Advisor to find this restaurant, as we always do, and we were certainly not disappointed. From the moment we stepped in to leaving we had a wonderful experience. We chose the tasting menu which was fantastic value and each dish really complemented each other, and was so delicious. The homemade bread (I had the onion) was fantastic. The time between each course was spot on, never rushed and never waiting too long. The wine combinations were really nice and for a top restaurant we were really surprised at how reasonably priced they were. The service was excellent. We will definitely come here again on our next visit to Torquay and I fully endorse why the Orange Tree is the number one restaurant here. I highly recommend it.

We were recommended to go here by a friend who took her mother for her 70th birthday. We were not disappointed. The meal was excellent with a vast choice and could not be faulted in any way. The lady owner was very accommodating and helpful. She also remembered my friends family visit as the sister had twins one of which walked for the first time. Good value for money here with such high quality food. In a word 'Excellent'
