The friendly staff, the AMAZING food, the portions - what is not to love about this place! I cannot recall a seafood restaurant anywhere in the world that I prefer to this place.

Perfect Food, attentive staff. Got exactly what I asked for, nothing too much trouble, perfectly cooked beautiful fish. Actually had reviewed another fish restaurant in Torquay but couldn't find it as the name had changed, glad now.

Just love this bistro. We booked for dinner and went straight into the restaurant rather than visiting the wine bar first. The staff are friendly and very knowledgable about the food.

Wonderful brasserie type fish restaurant!from plateau of crustaceans, oysters, crabs and the best selection of fish, cooked to your liking. There is also a very inviting a bar upstairs where you can sip champagne and have some oysters if you do not fancy a full meal. I highly recommend this restaurant. The service is prompt and efficient with a smile.... More

Fab seafood restaurant. No frills, none of the over the top presentation, simply fresh fish and shellfish being allowed to do all the talking and cooked to perfection. If I lived in Torquay I'd eat there every day.

You know you see Rick Stein discovering real Spanish restaurants full of locals off the beaten tourist track in his programmes, Number7 is just like that, not the Spanish people but the authenticity and quality of the food. The cooking here is delicious, if seafood is your thing go here, we had a selection of starters, grilled crab with garlic... More
