I came back to Torquay for a holiday in November from Australia and managed to book a table at Memories ( very lucky as usually fully booked ) When we arrived we were greeted by Hazel with a very warm welcome, although I hadn't met her before it was as though we were good friends. I can honestly say our... More

I was in Torquay for a weekend break, and called the restaurant on the off chance that they could fit me in, was delighted that they could. I thought I would try the pork and black puddings dumplings served with fresh veg and potatoes for my main course, and all I can say is 'wow'. My dessert was the brownie... More

Hazel and Gordon know how to make you feel welcome and feed you so well in their lovely French feel bistro, decorated beautifully. Delicious ingredients so well cooked. Superb. Like a recent review, we called up same day and got lucky (they'd had a cancellation), usually have to book up 2-3weeks in advance. Can't recommend highly enough!

You can not fault the food servered in this bistro. Top notch home cooked to a very high standard. Owners are very friendly and very welcoming. You won't be disappointed. You have to book well in advance as only open Friday and Saturday night.
