    Recently had Sunday lunch here. The sticky toffee pudding dessert was the best I’ve ever had, and believe me I’ve tried a few! Just a pity they are not open longer hours and coffee

    First time at this restaurant and very impressed, service was friendly and attentive, food was very good and great price, the only complaint would be £3 for dish of seasonal vegetables which came with a very small portion of cabbage, and small portion of mashed potatoes, such a shame, however I would return and recommend just don’t order the extra veg

    Dined here on Friday evening with my wife. Food was exquisite. Couldn't fault anything. I had steak for a change and it was delicious and perfectly cooked. The chunky chips and veg were spot on. My wifes duck was just as good and we both enjoyed the food and excellent service. This is a lovely small restaurant run by some talented and caring people - my favourite in Torquay. Keep up the good work

    Staying nearby and was headed for the pub but noticed the “special offer” of 2 mains and a bottle of wine for £35. Wow, everything about the place and the couple that run it was brilliant. We shared 2 starters between the 4 of us, the duck and Brie tartlet was fantastic. The mains of steaks, belly pork and the vegetarian pie could not be faulted and the 2 deserts were mouth watering. The wine was also good quality. We had such a great evening and wished we lived nearby so we could return again. The 2 owners were so friendly and really know what the restaurant business is all about. Well done to them.

    At last a restaurant with a nice short menu, good ingredients and beautifully executed , can't fault it. Only problem is that this sort of recommendation usually makes it harder to get table.

    The Waddling Duck Bistro is a charming little restaurant tucked away in a pleasant part of Torquay nicely remote from the hustle and bustle of the seafront fast food. We decided to return because it was good when we last visited over a year ago. This time, if anything, it was even better. I started with smoked salmon (a generous portion of high quality salmon, well presented), followed by lamb shank which was delicious. I appreciated the good vegetables done properly, too! I finished with a selection of ice creams which were excellent quality. We'll definitely visit again when in the area.

    Just gorgeous! This small friendly and welcoming restaurant serves the most delicious food reasonably priced for the excellent quality. We had a lovely evening here to end our holiday in Devon. The staff were helpful in all aspects from advice on menu choices to arranging our taxi at the end of our evening. Would thoroughly recommend for a visit but be sure to book!!

    Tonight I thoroughly enjoyed an evening at the Waddling Duck. The restaurant was full, so you should try to book. The food was exceptional, I enjoyed the soup and Duck. My husband enjoyed the smoked haddock scotched egg and Hake. We both found our meals full of flavour, delicious and filling. The service was good, the atmosphere comfortable and great value for money. This business deserves to be very successful. Highly recommend and cant wait to go back. Thank you!

    Revisited this fabulous bistro for an evening meal. The staff as always are extremely friendly and attentive. They can remember what we like and suggest alternatives to give us a more varied choice of drinks and meals. The ambiance is just cool and friendly and you can have a discussion without having to shout over overbearingly loud music! Well decorated across the theme of ducks. The menu is not extensive, however, there is always something for all tastes. Meals are very well presented and are delicious. I can never find fault in anything that I have eaten there. Would wholeheartedly recommend this wonderful restaurant.

    Visited this restaurant with my family on a Saturday evening in July and we were not disappointed. The only problem was deciding what to have because everything sounded so good. The service was excellent, the food was delicious and we all had a thoroughly enjoyable evening. We won’t hesitate to go back.

    Relaxed yet atmospheric, this place is charming. The people are friendly and attentive and there is a strong and interesting menu. Our food was cooked to perfection and there was plenty of flavour. The price was very reasonable for the quality. We are delighted to have found somewhere that is not over priced and that serves delicious food that is innovative without being pretentious. Thank you, we will be back.

    Visited this lovely Bistro recently as a group of fourteen. Without exception everyone commented how lovely the food was, and service to match.I personally had the Tournedos Rossini and can honestly say it has been years since I have tasted fillet steak as good as that.So if you want somewhere to eat in Torquay then visit The Waddling Duck, you won't be disappointed.On behalf of all of us a big thank-you to the staff for making it such a memorable evening.

    Visited while on holiday, friendly greeting followed by excellent service in a small restaurant with plenty of character. The food was freshly prepared to a high standard and we left feeling totally satisfied. We were staying at an apartment near Meadfoot beach and walked to the Waddling Duck along the coast road and up the hill past Kents Cavern.(approx 30 mins) After the meal we didn't fancy waddling back so short stroll up to the the main road and took advantage of the excellent public transport in the area and caught the bus back into Torquay.
