Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

If you want a guaranteed good meal you can’t go past here. The steaks are the bomb and the chargrilled veggies are delicious as well as the jacket potatoes and the mushrooms with feta.

Went to Squire’s Loft on the recommendation of a local. We were not disappointed. We both had steak and it was cooked to perfection. I opted for the twice baked potato with sour cream and chives as the accompaniment, it was delicious. The service and...ambiance was excellent. Highly recommended.More

Great service from our young attendant , reasonable wine list and the usual Squires menu. I did notice the special sharing plate of entree's/sides was a different item! Steak ( rump 200g) was perfectly cooked. A very good Torquay option.

It is my pleasure to share that Squires Loft Torquay is an excellent restaurant. Food is great. Well prepared, plenty of it. Ordered the entree to be shared between the four of us. Very good chaice of mains and sweets. Compliments to the chefs). Very...friendly, capable staff. Gigi, who waited on our table deserves highest praise for her warmth, friendliness, and sense of humor.Celebrated my wife's 80th birthday with friends. We all enjoyed the evening, and strongly recommend Squires Loft. Okay not cheap, but quality and service can't be measured in dollars. Congratulations to you all. Keep up the good work.More

Our family of six aged between 17-72 had dinner at this restaurant last night. We went there because we had read great reviews and we were delighted that every mouthful was beautiful! We all ordered different steaks and they were melting in our mouths. Our...sides, especially the broccoli, were outstanding. Some of us had hot chips while others had the twice baked potato and we loved both. We shared a lovely bottle of red and everything was topped off with outstanding service. I highly recommended having dinner at Squires Loft. It was worth every cent.More

Everything was perfect! The food, the wine, the atmosphere and the service. Perfectly cooked and delicious scotch fillet steak. The sharing platter with fried halloumi, baked mushroom and a Greek salad, was such a great mix, and was generous in size (don’t be fooled by...“small”- it’s not!). Complimentary bread on arrival was a nice touch. Recommend the chips over the potato. Worth every cent!More

It’s another story of good food done really well. An Angus steak, local Pinot noir and veg was a great meal. The real stars were the sauces. The garlic on the steak and prawns made it sing, and loudly. The sour cream with the local...spud had a zest of lime that filled and cleaned your mouth all at once. An affogato to tidy up rounded it outMore

This is our favourite place to go for all our special occasions and nothing has ever been wrong. Service is always first class. Atmosphere is really nice with dark moody interiors. The food is always perfect. Big believer in only eating steak when someone else...cooks it!More

My email after our visit - To whom it may concern, We had a party of 7 visit your restaurant on saturday 27th November to celebrate my daughters 21st birthday. PLease pass on our thanks to the staff. We chose your restaurant for dinner for...this special evening and were happy with the service both on booking and on the night, and for the most part the food provided. I wanted to let you know that the Scotch fillet that I had was quite sub standard for the quality I would have expected. It was quite tough to eat for a medium rare and I left the pieces of gristle on the side of the plate. I was disappointed with the quality of meat that I had but the rest of the party were happy with their meals. On another note, I had informed the restaurant of the family celebration and was a little disappointed that my daughter was made to feel special for such a big occasion. For staff to know of her special occasion, a free drink or something of this nature would have made the dinner more special considering the expense we went to for the dinner. Just some thoughts for your restaurant to consider for future occasions. Kind regards, Below their Reply soon after I emailed them. Won’t be going again based on this reply. Nothing also on making the dinner a special time for my daughter. Hi, Thank you very much for taking the time to offer valuable feedback, we will be sure to pass on your thanks to our lovely staff! We apologise that you found your steak sub-standard. We will follow up with the staff who serviced you on the night, as they are trained to inform customers that this can be an issue with the scotch at a medium-rare due to the high marbling content, and to recommend suitable alternatives. We always want to make sure customers have an amazing experience with us, and we hope to see you again soon!More
