We wanted somewhere special to celebrate an anniversary. It was a very good meal with attentive staff. They were very accommodating over certain things we could not eat and everything was cooked to perfection.

Quality food is a relaxed environment. Had a lovely evening that was only slightly tarnished by a long wait for dessert.

Appetiser was average, but our mains (deer steak and venison sirloin) were amazing. The Austrian chef was very warm and came out to mingle with each table towards the end of the service.

A great restaurant with a fantastic atmosphere. The food is a sheer delight from starter to coffee at a realistic price. We went for a birthday meal and were given complimentary glasses of champagne. At the end of the meal, the owner, a character in is own right, gave us a free glass of schnapps. Booking is advisable.

We went to Old Vienna because of all the great reviews. My wife isn't veggie but I am, so this isn't really a restaurant designed for me. The staff were very friendly and attentive, and Werner (owner and chef) plays the role of mien host to the hilt. To be frank the veggie option was well prepared and nicely presented,... More

One of the best restaurants in Torquay. My wife and I had a wonderful night. The food was excellent, the service also, and the host made us feel very welcoming. It is a small intimate place, but we never felt as if it was overcrowded. The complimentary glass of schnapps at the end of the meal was a nice touch.

A birthday surprise for my husband by our daughter, joined by friends and their 12 & 15 year old's. The menu was so varied, pigeon & pheasant starter, scallops, ham hock, soups, terrine and that was just the starters. It did take us a while to make our selections, as there was a lot of 'if I have this and... More

Came here after seeing such amazing reviews and did not disappoint. Had some amazing food. Particularly the lamb rump. Really great seasonal vegetables! Desserts were heavenly. Kirsch and cherry filled pancakes with chestnut ice cream and strudel was also great (we shared!). After our meal the chef/owner came out and personally chatted with every table and gave complimentary home-made pear... More
