Modern European
A relatively new addition to the Torquay dining scene having opened in March 2019, yet the Brasserie is already proving popular with diners who appreciate good cooking and good value in equal measure. Our Chef Callum Tasker has created a menu which very much focusses on using wherever possible, locally sourced ingredients, cooked with love and care. The wine list too also focusses on delivering a good selection of excellent wines which are priced to be drunk not gather dust in our our cellar! The ambience here is relaxed, indeed almost intimate with just 12 tables. Private luncheon parties can be catered for too.

Vegetarian, vegan, gluten free

We try to cater for all needs here at the Bay that why you will find that many dishes are gluten free or have a gluten free option. For other dietary needs all we ask is that you make us aware at time of booking and chef will be more than happy to cater for your specific requirements should you not find anything suitable on our menus..

The food was exceptional! My partner is a chef so usually finding places to eat is tricky, as his standards are naturally high, but we are so glad we found this is a little gem of a restaurant! Great value for money for such lovely tasty food! Also the bar staff were attentive and very polite too! would definitely recommend :)

It was a terrible night to go out but we had relatives visiting and I wanted to try Brasserie as had read good reviews, it was quiet to be expected on a windy rainy night but glad we did. The menu caters for all tastes with something for everyone, I had the sirloin steak cooked to perfection and added parmesan fries which were delicious, only comment to add perhaps a bit too much food as couldn't finish it all which was a great shame as it was all so appetising. Good starter choice had the fabulous goats cheese tart, yummy! dessert menu looked good but unfortunately couldn't manage. Good wine choice. Attentive staff. Clean and modern with a relaxed seating area for pre dinner drinks but not stuffy, classy! Would go again and recommend. Maybe next time just starter and pud!

This is a very new place for us in Torquay and well worth a visit. The food was really good and the service very pleasant. We will definitely go there again. Hopefully more people will discover it and it will became a favourite place to go to. The building has been recently redecorated and is very stylish. Its in a very pretty setting with outdoor space for dining on a nice day.

We were recommended to go to the Brassiere and we were not disappointed. The service and food was excellent. The interior decor was beautifully executed. Wish it had been a bit busier but that certainly wouldn’t stop us going again.

Lovely location. First impressions were good although car parking in the car park is limited. Staff very pleasant. We took drinks on the terrace area in the evening sunshine. When our table was ready we were surprised to have to take our own glasses and wine bottle to the table, would have expected the waittress to do this.The menu has quite a good choice, we opted for goats cheese which was tasty and well presented. We all ordered something different for the main meal so four different dishes. Two arrived together but there was a significant wait for the third and fourth, the staff apologised and we were pretty relaxed about this, although it wasn't ideal. We all enjoyed the food, nice and hot and well presented. We took coffee in the lounge which has a relaxing atmosphere. They knocked off the cost of the starters due to the delay in the main's arriving which we all felt was a nice touch, we had not expected anything.

The menu was small but comprehensive with something for everyone. Presentation was appealling and the service good and friendly. The quality of the food was outstanding - far better than one would expect for such modest prices. I had the smoked salmon pate and the chicken with Provalone cheese & sage. Both were excellent and I can recommend either. There were not many diners in when I was there due to my time of eating but there was still a nice, relaxed ambiance which encouraged me to stay for an extra glass of wine! I woul thoroughly recommend the Brasserie at te Bay and will definitely be returning to sample the rest of the menu.
