Torres Mestre was born in Madrid. After unsuccessfully graduating through Real Madrid's youth ranks, only appearing in two La Liga matches in three-and-a-half years and mainly playing with the B-squad, he was released in January 1993, only to find opportunities also scarce at fellow league club Logroñés.
In the 1993 summer, Torres Mestre signed with Espanyol, being an instant first-choice as the Catalan team won the Segunda División title and finished sixth in La Liga the following season, narrowly missing out on qualification for the UEFA Cup. He remained a starter until 1998, when he left for Bordeaux.
After one season in France, in which he was the most utilized player in his position as Bordeaux won the Division 1 championship, Torres Mestre returned to Spain, playing with Alavés and Betis, the latter in the second tier. He retired in 2006, after spells with Varzim in Portugal and with amateur sides Sporting Mahonés and Premià.
Torres Mestre started coaching in 2010, taking charge of Real Madrid youth sides. He started the 2011–12 campaign at the helm of Badajoz in Segunda División B, leaving his post after only 18 rounds claiming unpaid wages.
