“Exceptional new restaurant!”
Review of Ollies

Ollies
Ranked #98 of 309 Restaurants in Torquay
Description: Family run restaurant. Modern British using local produce. We're only as good as our ingredients. That's why at Ollie's we nurture long-term relationships from across Devon to get the best produce. The restaurant delivers an informal and social setting, where the surroundings are as vibrant as the food. Ollie's is in the heart of Torquay located on Torwood Street which opened on 4th December 2020. This new restaurant has undergone complete refurbishment, providing a classic setting and offering the highest quality cuisine.

I have already been three times (before the current restrictions) and I love it here!
The atmosphere and staff are so welcoming and the decor inside matches the excellent food. The Menu is modern and has something for everyone. Top quality ingredients in a top quality Chef's hands. Can't wait to get back there again :-)

We were lucky enough to dine at Ollie’s on their opening night- what a fabulous evening! Fantastic service, high quality delicious food in beautiful surroundings. This is just what Torquay needs. Have made several visits prior to lockdown, and it just gets better! Highly recommend the monkfish starter, chateaubriand and duck. Have tried all the desserts and can’t say I have a favourite as they are all delightful. Not a wine drinker myself, but my husband says the Malbec is a perfect accompaniment to the food. Cannot wait to return.
Not to miss out on Ollie’s fine cuisine, we will be ordering their Sunday roast again which is first class. Friday night burger takeaway is also tantalising our taste buds!!
Congratulations to the Williamson family on their new venture. It’s wonderful to see a local family run business having the confidence in the bay and setting up during these challenging times.

I visited Ollie’s in December for a family members birthday, we were a group of 5 and all of our dishes were amazing!! The scallops were beautifully cooked and I had the monkfish for main with an extra side of Parmesan mash and both were unreal! The service was brilliant and the atmosphere was lovely, even in these difficult times. I can’t wait to go back!

We had a booking on opening night and went a few times when restrictions allowed before the latest lockdown . One word fabulous ! Such a great addition to the restaurant scene in Torquay . A London bistro feel with excellent service and delicious fayre . Ollie is a great chef and front of house team so friendly felt safe and welcome opening in such difficult circumstances . So refreshing to go somewhere with up to date menu choices and decor . Our fave is the Monkfish popcorn appetiser , fresh Brixham Scallops and chateau Briand to share , all delicious and reasonably priced . We’ve also had the takeaway boxes and Sunday roast all done with style and little extras . Well done to the Williamson family can’t wait for you to open again .

I can not recommend Ollie's enough, it truly is a welcomed addition to the bay.......
We had the pleasure of eating in the restaurant before lock down and was overwhelmed by the stunning fine food, and fabulous wines. The wonderful attentive staff are so accommodating and the cosy atmosphere makes for a fabulous evening, we can not wait to get back there......... But in the mean time Ollie's is offering DIY Boxes which we are BIG fans of, bringing a piece of Ollie's home, it couldn't be more simple, with a little video sent to you of the very little prep you have to do along with a step by step recipe card. Our weekends are sorted, incredible restaurant food in our own home!!!! Perfect.....
