Six of us ate here on Saturday, we have been a few times before so knew what to expect but as always so hard to choose from dishes tried before to trying something different. Everything cooked to perfection, fantastic hostess. Thanks to all for a wonderful meal. WE WILL RETURN!!!!!

We have heard a lot about this Bistro and it is very popular and only open Friday and Saturdays. We managed to book and took my Stepmum. We were the first there and the owner was very attentive and friendly and told us her husband did all the cooking and all food ect was locally sourced. It is a small,... More

The food is top notch,best I have ever eaten.The owners are lovely and the service excellent.I cant fault it.My only little quibble is I personally would like a more varied style of music and a bit louder to create more of an atmosphere.Other than that I would highly recommend you try it!

Had a meal on Friday 28th August at 6.15pm. It was amazing, just perfect. Absolutely faultless. The bistro was spotless, the atmosphere wonderful, all down to the beautiful way in which hazel the owner looks after you. Her husband is the chef and what can I say, but perfect, perfect, perfect. Everything homemade from soups to sauces to puddings. The... More

If you are visiting the Torbay area then you must visit this small bistro restaurant situated in the village of St Mary Church (approx 2 miles from Torquay harbour). The restaurant is run by a husband and wife team, with Hazel being the face of the front of house and her husband, Gordon, freshly preparing and cooking food to order.... More

I was visiting friends from London and they booked us in (apparently an essential, as the restaurant is so popular and only opens on limited days each week) for a Saturday night. The restaurant itself is small, quirkily decorated, and is full of character. What I liked particularly was the welcome from Hazel, who greeted us like family friends rather... More

We finished off with liqueur coffees - super meal and made very welcome by Hazel. We've booked again as... More
