You only have to look at all the other reviews. Without doubt 5* service, 5* food and a great venue and atmosphere. The best restaurant in Torquay.

Not had the opportunity to go here in a little while, but everything was as good as ever - welcome, food, atmosphere, all of it. Took my youngest son (12 - restaurant is small and because of this, not suited to younger children) and he wasn't sure when we walked in, as Memories is very different to anywhere else locally...

This restaurant is first class for service and the food is amazing. We did not wait long for our meals and the courses were all beautifully presented and delicious. Certainly Torquay s ' hidden secret' and perfect for that special occasion.
