Review of Small World Tapas

Small World Tapas
Ranked #1 of 369 Restaurants in Torquay
Price range: US$ 13 - US$ 79
Description: Small World is a dream in a pocket size. Our reserved but family atmosphere restaurant is one of the fewest places in Torquay where you can share absolutely everything. Because sharing is loving. And we love food. Quiet place where you can also peek at the kitchen while the Chef is cooking worldwide tapas. Not only Spanish, but from all around the world. We change the menu very often to offer you the best of every country. And if you feel like drinking a country as well we have a selection of wines, local beers, spirits and cocktails. We also have Free Wifi. We are not a chain. We are independent. We are FoodLovers

This restaurant is every bit as good as the reviews here say it is.

We were heading to Torquay for a day out and checked on TA for the best places to eat. This was top of the pile - and I can see why.

We received a very warm welcome from Sara and were taken through her suggested way to have tapas. Each dish is about right for two people (many things having four items supplied) and around 4 dishes for a meal is average. All dishes are cooked fresh and although they can be delivered together, are best eaten in 'waves'.

We were feeling peckish so we ordered 5 dishes - sweet potato chips, cauliflower cheese croquettes, coconut prawns with sweet chilli dip, Thai curry and chicken satay.

All were superb and we just about managed to finish them all.

The wines were very reasonably priced too so I was slightly wary. I needn't have been. The Aussie Shiraz was only £14.50 a bottle but slipped down a treat.

The total bill only came to £37.50 so we left a decent tip.

As others have said, Sara and Kevin (the chef) clearly love what they do. Sara is Spanish but her English is excellent and her sense of humour well-developed.

The next time we come to Torquay and eat, we'll definitely head back here.

In the words of my 8 year old daughter, this place is epic. Her first time for duck wings and octopus, which she loved. Fantastic place, try it if you are ever in Torquay

We were a party of two, visiting at 6pm on Saturday evening.
We read the reviews, 100% excellent. Really?
In short, yes. Fantastic welcome from Sara (?) made us feel at ease and advised us on the menu. Now I know how to order tapas! Beautiful food in a nice environment. Well done to all the team and thanks for a great evening.
In summary, if you are thinking of booking, stop thinking and do it.....

Saw the good reviews,never been here before and thought we’d give it a go.
Varied and interesting selection of foods and a box with a surprise ! Welcome and service 10/10 passionate about their food. All the dishes we chose were absolutely lovely and tasty and there was a novel twist with the bread bag ! (Wife already planning a girlie lunch)
We will definitely be returning.
