Beautiful restaurant with great views of the Torquay seafront and surrounding areas of Torbay. The food was beautiful both in presentation and taste, and the staff were very professional, attentive and efficient. I would fully recommend this Bistrot to anyone who are looking for an upmarket experience on a budget. Rustic finery at it's best.
