1. No 7 Fish Bistro Fish & seafood restaurant in Torquay 7 Beacon Terrace - TQ1
“Brilliant for fish-lovers” – the Stacey family’s “warm and casual” (but rather unsung) operation (with a wine bar upstairs) has served up the pick of Tor Bay’s seafood (most of it landed at Brixham harbour at the other end of the bay) for 25 years. Daily specials are listed on a “series of blackboards, with a separate board advertising tempura, and a tray of fish samples is also brought round”.
2. Elephant Restaurant & Brasserie British, Modern restaurant in Torquay 3-4 Beacon Ter, Harbourside - TQ1
“Simon Hulstone’s sensational food is all about delivering flavour by showcasing ingredients, which he does wonderfully”, according to most reports on the TV-chef’s accoladed venture, in a Georgian terrace, which they applaud as “an intimate hideaway with great views”. “It lacks that special feel” to some diners, though, and ratings have slipped noticeably in the past couple of years, with gripes about food which, especially at the high prices, is “good but not mind-blowing” (“I don’t have a clue as to how it got a Michelin star”).
