“Lovely evening all round”
Review of Small World Tapas

Small World Tapas
Ranked #1 of 337 Restaurants in Torquay
Certificate of Excellence
Price range: £15 - £60
Description: Small World is a dream in a pocket size. Our reserved but family atmosphere restaurant is one of the fewest places in Torquay where you can share absolutely everything. Because sharing is loving. And we love food. Quiet place where you can also peek at the kitchen while the Chef is cooking worldwide tapas. Not only Spanish, but from all around the world. We change the menu very often to offer you the best of every country. And if you feel like drinking a country as well we have a selection of wines, local beers, spirits and cocktails. We also have Free Wifi. We are not a chain. We are independent. We are FoodLovers

This is the number one restaurant in Torquay for a good reason. Wanted a nice meal for our last night in Torquay and Small World did not disappoint. Lovely friendly waitresses, great atmosphere and superb tapas. The egg box mystery dessert finished the evening off perfectly.
The fact that it was busy on a very wet Thursday evening with what seemed like mostly local people shows how good it is.

From first to last this was a wonderful experience. We were met by Sara/Sarah, and welcomed so beautifully, made to feel special, not like ‘any other customer’. She explained the menu and how things work as we’d never been there before. We chose from the menu and had 3 dishes each (which we shared) and each one was so tasty and well presented. The wine was lovely, and just as described in the wine menu.
The atmosphere was lovely, friendly and warm, as were the other two staff members who looked after us.
Can’t fault this place and can’t wait to return.

This was a fantastic destination for a group as we could choose most of the menu to share. Both service and food were brilliant. It’s truly authentically Spanish! Oh, and good wine too! 💖
