Welcoming and attentive staff who were very pleasant and helpful. The food was very well cooked and presented. Sea bass, pheasant, brill and venison were excellent. Given the high quality of the food the prices are very reasonable.

We visited the Orange Tree for the first time recently. We will definitely return after having a lovely meal. The food was exceptional and very nicely presented. The staff were attentive without being intrusive.

My wife and I , having recently moved to Torquay , have been visiting restaurants of all types in the Torbay area one at a time . The Orange Tree was saved for a special occasion as it's more expensive . There is a reason for that which is that the meal was superb and judging by other reviews and... More

This is my first 5 star review and it is well-deserved. As a special meal out my husband and I had the taster menu at the cost of £48 each. Each course was exquisite with complex flavours that made you want to savour it all. The staff were friendly and helpful, the atmosphere classy. I highly recommend this dining experience.

Thank Teachliz
