We went for breakfast, but they were no longer serving it, even though the website said they were. We went with the flow and ordered burgers. They were ordinary, as was the coffee. The staff didn't seem interested in serving us.
The veal saltimbucca was very good. Chicken Parma was well cooked and presented but way too large. Would have satisfied two people. Maybe a smaller serve as an option
Food was fantastic. Food took almost an hour to come out but it is summer holidays I guess.
After reviewing the options for lunch in Torquay we went with Stoop as they actually took reservations. Glad we booked, It was an exceptionally busy weekend, Torquay was heaving. Located back from the ocean Stoop wasn’t crowded, food was awesome and service was good. Highly recommend
Our first visit to Stoop was sensational the food the staff and the service were great
I went there for my birthday and it was really nice!
The food at The Stoop was absolutely delicious. We particularly loved the hummus small plate with roasted vegetables!
Arrived for our 8pm booking and were told that the kitchen was closed. Upon insisting that we had a booking were we received. Service was rushed and drinks were not served after 10pm. Food was excellent.
By far the best ambience and food quality in Torquay. The staff are fabulous, mature and knowledgeable with the right level of intrusion and attentiveness. Always a warm welcome (which is to my mind the most important aspect in hospitality), food quality totally reliable, portions v. commendable and tastiness all round. It's a always pleasure to know that you could order anything or accept a staff recommendation and be thoroughly satisfied. The only danger is that it offers such a cosy ambience that you might just out stay your welcome!
Love the friendly relaxed ambience of The Stoop. The staff are helpful friendly and professional. The food is delicious. Over all, a wonderful experience!
We enjoyed the Fish cakes as a starter, they were outstanding! Keep bring us interesting specials.
Really enjoy the food and the lovely atmosphere. The menu would be perfect if some additional vegetarian, side salad/vegetable dishes were to be added.
We had a wonderful evening.
Food and service were exceptional.
Will most definitely be back
Absolutely amazing meal at the stoop! Our waitress Mollie made the best recommendations on food and wine and was so happy to help with any requests! Will definitely be returning :) vegan Options too
Brilliant fresh food with fantastic service. Originally popped in for lunch both the waitress and barista were so accommodating organising for me food to go. Then came in the following evening for a beautiful meal and great wine selection.
The hidden jewel of Torquay!!!
Nice and niche gem within Torquay village. Very friendly staff. Good set of menu options. Some consideration for allergies (Gluten, fructose, etc).
We love going here. Great atmosphere, good food and reasonably priced.
We were a party of 7 ladies celebrating my sister-in-law's 50th Birthday. I could not speak more highly of The Stoop in every respect, food, service and friendliness by staff. I am bringing my work mates here next lunch we plan. Thanks to all who looked after us all on 1st May, 2019. Thanks also to the Chef who cooked amazing food.
My 3rd time to Stoop, every time I’ve received fantastic service. I’m sad they didn’t have the steak tartare anymore. All in all the staff made the evening!
This is a regular place to dine for us. We love it for breakfast, lunch and dinner!!
Consistent high quality food and service in a fine relaxed atmosphere.
The set up is beautiful and the staff were lovely.
However we had to wait 50 minutes for our food and the place wasn't super packed.
Also we had no idea there was specials until we looked at the back of the bar were they are written and our order had already been taken.
When the food didnfinally come out it was mediocre especially for the price ! My "potatoes" were wedges and were burnt and the salad was pretty yuck the steak I had was good but was almost at the point of being overdone
My hubby had a parmigiana and it was quite dry and he had asked for no dressing in his salad and he got dressing so he couldn't eat it
We also ordered extra chips which they forgot about and we had to remind them.
For almost 80$ not a great experience at all.
Lovely restaurant, very good food & service. We will be back.
A favourite restaurant in Torquay, good casual atmosphere, attentive staff, great coffee and food. Can't go wrong here for brunch, lunch or dinner.
Enjoyed a lovely evening with friends on the deck with our small pup. We all loved our meals I had the Boulebaise which was delish. The staff a very friendly and the restaurant is positioned one street back from the esplanade which means it is away from the chaos during peak summer season
A “ hidden secret” !
Have been to Stoop about 6 times now mostly for evening meals. The service is excellent and the food has always been of high standard.
Had a few dinners here with different groups. Always fantastic service & a great atmosphere. My only recommendations would be more vegetarian options. My favourite has never disappointed.....everyone always has a great time at The Stoop.
All around the best venue in Torquay... Love the food, service and layout of the restaurant... A great place to enjoy a delicious lunch or dinner!
Fantastic food and atmosphere. Would highly recommend this establishment
Staff are always great and food is impeccable. You can always have a conversation and hear yourselves without a lot of noise.
Fantastic! Best food in Torquay. Coffee is excellent and wines are well chosen. Staff are friendly and professional. Doesn't break the bank either.
Great night at the Stoop, great food and music , the perfect winter spot!
Great choice of dishes and innovative ingredients. Food expertly cooked. All dishes true to type. Good value for money. Family friendly too. Drinks list small but plenty of choice. Staff really welcoming and efficient.
We have been to this restaurant for coffee, lunch and dinner several times. Staff are always friendly professional and efficient, lovely atmosphere and consistently good food. Keep up the good work!
Welcome greetings and a table ready for us. Great service, awesome food, ambiance was cool.
The new menu is a delightful surprise. Attended a group lunch, went back that evening for dinner with a friend where we shared the light meals, and returned again with my partner the next night to try out the menu further. Was not disappointed. Friendly service also. Cosy ambience. Highly recommend.
Personal service, great food & an excellent wine list makes The Stoop a ‘go to’ venue. The whole flounder dish was superb & the Kingfish ‘special’ was just that! Highly recommend it for a casual meal or a special occasion.
