From Pizza To Michelin Star
Torquay and the surrounding areas of Brixham, Babbacombe and beyond have a wealth of eateries to suit all tastes. Whether it's fine dining or fish and chips out of the paper there's something for everyone. We are happy to suggest places and have listed a few of our favorites and others.
We would recommend advance reservation to avoid disappointment, especially at weekends, bank holidays and the summer months.
“If you can eat with mates or friends or family, I mean, it's such a brilliant thing isn't it? If you feel really rubbish and you have a nice bit of food it makes you feel good, you know?”
― Jamie Oliver
In light of the current situation and the "eat out to help out" scheme we advise booking in advance

Ideal for lunch or coffee but they do open later in the summer season with themed evenings and live music most Fridays and Sundays during June - September. Great location overlooking the harbour side.

Getting a good reputation for great tapas, a young small restaurant with big taste. Well worth a visit
Ephesus - Greek & Turkish
