Welcome to The Elephant Restaurant & Brasserie

The Elephant is a bright, informal restaurant which overlooks the beautiful Torbay harbour. It was the first restaurant in Torquay to be awarded a Michelin star which it maintains today.  We aim to source all our ingredients locally and sustainably, many from our dedicated farm in Brixham. Please feel free to ask our front of house team about anything you are unsure of.

Run by chef proprietor, Simon Hulstone and his wife Katy. Food is cooked by a talented team of chefs and served by friendly, professional team of staff.

Diners can enjoy a delicious à la carte menu and set menus featuring local and sustainable fish, meat and vegetables, sourced from the surrounding area, in an informal and attractive setting.

For an extra special culinary treat opt for the tasting menu. Expect friendly and knowledgable service without the formalities.

All our dishes change regularly depending on which locally grown and reared (many sourced from our dedicated farm) ingredients are at their best.
