“Off season”
Reviewed 30 March 2014

Dropped in for a pint of cider - no beers available, just ciders and lagers, no sign of food, but a very obliging barman. All looked and smelt clean and pleasant. Only half a dozen all-male customers, some enjoying Tuesday's free pool, and we were made welcome.

“Couldnt have asked for more”
Reviewed 16 February 2014

We booked to have an evening meal here on the 14th feb before we realised it was valentines!!. Robert said he didnt normally open on an evening but he would gladly do so for us. A better night we could not of had, nothing was to much trouble and we were made to feel so welcome, another couple where here as well and the fact it was only a handful of us there made it even better as you didnt feel you where part of the herd..Food and company and atmosphere where all 100% tip top and we will def be going back to see Rob again!!

“Super”
Reviewed 15 February 2014 via mobile

On a trip down memory lane to the town where we met, my wife and I visited Torquay. Typical seaside town in February! Cold and wet!
We came across Bistro Envy for lunch and were not disappointed. The downstairs Bistro was warm, welcoming and the lunch menu very good. Having said that the owner made our order seem " made to order" offering alterations and additions to suit our particular requirements. The table next to ours was asked how they wanted their burger grilled! Our food was excellent and we have no hesitation in recommending this Bistro without qualification or hesitation.

“I'll be back!!!”
Reviewed 4 February 2014 via mobile

Had a really lovely chicken pot pie with all the trimmings although maybe needed a bit of gravy.
Rob was definitely the host with the most and made us feel welcome throughout.
In Torbay for 4 weeks now so will definitely be back.
