Went to the Scandinavian evening as a Fathers day eve treat for my wife's Dad. Outstanding! The starters were poached pear or Gravalax [smoked salmon]. Two had duck, one fish and one the veggie option for mains and they were superb. Puds we all had a Norwegian dish that was brilliant too. All for £80!!

Kevin is a fantastic chef and Sam and her Mum run front of house very efficiently on these occasions. Book early for the next special evening!

We popped in for afternoon tea after reading reviews on TripAdvisor. Babbini's is in Abbotskerswell which is only 5 minutes in the car from Torquay, but is a very untouched little village and very quaint. It seems to be largely used by the villagers but was very welcoming to us 'foreigners'. We tried the warm Bakewell tart and the lemon sponge cake. Both were excellent, ant the accompanying ice cream/clotted cream were superb too. Cost around £8 in total so really excellent value too. If you drive through Abbotskerswell you can't miss them and would be missing out if you didn't try them.

We enjoyed an excellent Sunday lunch. The tasty main dish was properly home cooked with extra vegetables as requested. The pudding a recently made apricot bakewell and all for £10.00!!!. The service was efficient, friendly and considerate. To find the restaurant does need a little bit of ingenuity because it is in a beautiful village but slightly off the beaten track. We will be back, particularly because they were advertising a speciality evening of French food. This restaurant is a real find; quality food produced by an excellent chef at a reasonable price. The decor does look slightly dated for the younger market, but this does not put us off because the time and money is clearly being invested in the quality food and service.

Had very good light lunch of the soup of the day and a. Hot drink. Soup excellent and home made. Bread was a bit mean with only a couple of pieces of a small French stick. Very friendly and will visit again

An ideal place for a leisurely breakfast ,lunch or just a relaxing beverage. A wide breakfast choice catering for all tastes with a good vegetarian option and boiled egg and soldiers! A wide selection of lunch options available too. A family concern with genial host and hostess and their well behaved but attentive little dog, Alfie! Although open during the day I noticed an imminent Greek themed evening and home-made pies to take away.
