“Amazing Tapas plus more - Certainly Recommend”

Small World Restaurant and Tapas Bar
Ranked #36 of 352 Restaurants in Torquay
Price range: US$13 - US$73
Description: Small World is a dream in a pocket size. Our reserved but family atmosphere restaurant is one of the fewest places in Torquay where you can share absolutely everything. Because sharing is loving. And we love food. Quiet place where you can also peek at the kitchen while the Chef is cooking worldwide tapas. Not only Spanish, but from all around the world. We change the menu very often to offer you the best of every country. And if you feel like drinking a country as well we have a selection of wines, local beers, spirits and cocktails. We also have Free Wifi. We are not a chain. We are independent. We are FoodLovers

Second visit within less than a week. Came back with the friends who recommended Small World to us. All food prepared in the kitchen using fresh ingredients. Each dish a delight to share and eat. Dishes portioned for 2 people to share or 4 if like us we order two dishes each. Sarah is a delight and Kevin's passion for his food really shows by the care and quality of the dishes he creates: Roasted Goats Cheese, Croquettes with a choice of filling, Coconut Prawns, Tortilla Espanola, Satay Chicken and the Transparent Raviolis must be tried, plus all the extra surprises that come out the kitchen. We were only there last night (Thursday) and already planned another visit at the weekend. Good thing we live in Torquay or we could be moving in.

I ate here with a few friends prior to the cinema last week and was very impressed! Very friendly, warm welcome from Sarah and the table was decorated as I'd mentioned when booking it was my friends birthday.
The food was absolutely delicious and we had a few little extras as they were trialling some starters and sweets.
So impressed with this little place and will definitely be eating here again.

We visited last night and had a great meal - Sarah, (from Alicante) was our charming host and the food was absolutely superb. My favourite dish was the Croque Monsieur and my Wife's was Albondigas...in saying that - everything we had was delicious. By the end of the evening we were both so full, but because everything was so good, we made room for desserts; they were also top notch!
Great food, friendly atmosphere and very reasonably priced - we highly recommend this place - we're on holiday from Norfolk and just wish we lived closer!

Having tried most of the evening menu, we both enjoyed all the different dishes. Wide selection of dishes to choose from both tapas you'd recognise and new dishes too. Well cooked and presented. Sara was attentive to us and the other customers even though it was a busy Saturday night. We'll be back again and recommend to anyone visiting Torquay.
