The only Michelin starred restaurant in the area. Run by a dynamic chef proprietor this is in fact two restaurants in one. Downstairs is a Brassiere (open all year); upstairs is a fine dining Restaurant The Room at the Elephant (open April to September). A comparatively expensive option BUT the food is from a team striving constantly for excellence.
Listed by ‘Les Routiers’- Sweet romantic restaurant. Not a cheap option option but service is not hurried and as such the evening will be leisurely experience and the atmosphere is relaxed. This intimate restaurant is simply made for special occasions.
Located in Lisburne Square, a short distance from the harbour, this is a very small intimate restaurant run by a chef proprietor with a very big personality. Service and food are both superb. Some of the dishes are very Austrian, others a little more familiar to British palates. This little restaurant makes you feel very welcome.
This is a really charming little Italian restaurant with the best Italian food in Torquay. Also, probably one of the best steaks you’ll get in Torquay too. The restaurant is not in the best location and you’ll probably need to drive or take a cab but it’s worth it.
