Very friendly and to be honest, though there are many hotels in and around Torquay, the Crescent has a little bit more class.

The service is great but when we went some of the food was not available. The place could do with some work. It was also dark inside the restaurant.

Unfortunately, we were quite disappointed by The Crescent restaurant. The soup my partner had was tasteless (although the restaurant did, to their credit knock it off the bill) and my salad lacked taste and any sort of finesse which you'd expect from its £7 price tag. The scallops themselves were OK but served with a cold pea puree and limp bacon. Again, way overpriced at £12. My main course of chicken supreme wasn't too bad taste-wise but for £19 I expected something a lot more adventurous. Overall the service was good, prompt and courteous but the menu was uninspiring (I forgot to mention that half of the menu seemed unavailable that night) and overpriced.

Overall, it’s was a way to spend Sunday lunch. The waiter was attentive and professional. The food was very nice, would have been nice to have a cheese board choice.

I have booked a table again for the 14th of December. It’s a great location, atmospheric and relaxing.

Both food and service were fantastic, and we really enjoyed our meal. I was surprised that it was relatively quiet, especially as we were there on a Saturday night. I suspect this might be to do with their slightly confusing website which really doesn't do the restaurant justice. This is a great place for a special meal. Ignore the website and give it a go!

It was very quiet there last Sunday lunchtime and feel they could really do with some background music so you can speak okay rather than feeling you need to whisper. The food was good value for money however the drinks are expensive though as the cheapest wines are from £20 and even a medium priced one wasn't great we have had better ones we bought in the supermarket for under £7 and not served at the right temperature, even 2 small lemonades were charged at £7 and 4 small coffees at £14 with not even a chocolate or small biscuit so thought that was overpriced.

Poor quality food at high prices. Main courses served over 4 days of my stay were not fresh but frozen food. Tastless and bland. Some of the deserts were good. Shame really as the waiting staff were amazing, helpful and apologetic for the dreadful food served.

We have time share and this was the best meal for quite a while. The restaurant was informal but still good for a special occasion and the service was very good.
