Local Restaurants Near The Torcroft 

Torquay has a wide choice of great restaurants, many within a short walk from The Torcroft. Our nearest restaurant called Pierre le Bistrot is just 4 minutes walk! That restaurant is in a brand new building on the sea-front called Abbey Sands Crescent, which also house half a dozen nice places to eat and drink. 
 
 
PIERRE LE BISTROT - TORCROFT TOP CHOICE!  
01803 221213 
 
If you fancy authentic French bistro style meals this is the place for you. A bar is on the ground floor and the main tables are on the first floor and the outdoor balcony with superb views over the bay. Modest prices for good food mean it is popular, so book ahead for a table. Highly recommended. 
 
No.7 Fish Bistrot - TORCROFT TOP CHOICE! 
01803 295055 
 
If you love fish and seafood, do not hesitate - head for No.7. The food is outstanding, the service fabulous and the atmosphere wonderful. Great wine bar upstairs. It's not the least expensive place in town, but worth every penny. 
 
LAS IGUANAS 
01803 297 053 
 
Las Iguanas is the latest new restaurant to find a home in the Abbey Sands building on Torquay's seafront. Their ethos is refreshingly simple. They bring authentic South America to every table, every day – in a place that lives and breathes Latin. 
 
ROCKFISH - TORCROFT TOP CHOICE! 
01803 212175 
 
Rockfish is a new fish and chip shop owned by celebrity chef Mitch Tonks. It is down on the harbour; you can't miss the bright aqua green paint. It is not a place for a long evening of intimate fine dining; more like a Pizza Express with a good range of fish and seafood. It is family friendly and there is a takeaway section as well. Very good, fresh fish and chips! 
 
 
VISTO LOUNGE - TORCROFT TOP CHOICE! 
01803 211 009 
 
The Visto Lounge has just opened at Abbey Sands new curvy white building on the seafront. It has a large, themed restaurant and bar inside and cafe tables outside. Bistro type food that you order from the bar. We think it will settle down to be a Torquay favourite.
