Restaurateurs behind a national chain are set be at the heart of the Palm Court redevelopment. French restaurant group Le Bistrot Pierre will open a flagship eatery in the seafront site creating at least 35 jobs.
"Abbey Sands is going to be a very striking addition to the Torquay seafront," said Rob Beacham, co-founder of Le Bistrot Pierre.
It will be a landmark building for Torbay and we are delighted to be part of such a prestigious scheme."
"The Le Bistrot Pierre approach to dining is relaxed and welcoming," said Mr Beacham.
"Each of our bistrots is styled a little differently to complement the building it is in but, whilst our look changes between each bistrot, customers can expect the same personal, attentive service and high quality simple French cookery to enjoy every day."
The company prides itself on preparing all food on site, from sauces through to desserts, in the style of typical continental bistrots.
Some food, such as the nutty flavoured St Marcellin cheese from Isere, the Toulouse sausage and the traditional escargot from Burgundy, are imported but they aim to source local suppliers wherever possible.

Staff at Torquay Marina recently welcomed MDL berth holders to the Royal Torbay Yacht Club (RTYC), to celebrate the height of the boating season at their annual Summer Party.
Sponsored by Sunseeker Torquay, the evening was a great success. Guests admired the beautiful setting of the yacht club, with its stunning backdrop of views out to sea, and made the most of the warm summer weather by mingling on the outside decking.
Talented local singer, Celine Dos Santos and her band treated guests to a brilliant live acoustic performance, adding to the relaxed atmosphere of the evening. An impressive firework display from Paignton seafront made a perfect end to the evening.
The team at Torquay Marina would like to say a big thank you to Sunseeker Torquay for their support and for helping to make the evening a special one.
