We went to this delightful restaurant to celebrate our 30th wedding anniversary. Most years we are in France and have enjoyed most of the meals we have had in the past there. However up until now we have been dissapointed when we have chosen to eat in the UK. Not this time though. The food was delicious and the staff... More

Had a lovely meal and nice experience. Pretty restaurant and tasteful inside. Nice intimate setting and the staff are attentive. Food was spot on and nice to try something a little unusual but not too out of your comfort zone. Plenty of choice on the menu for anyone I'm sure. Nice touch that the owner pops out to greet you...

Thank you for your review- missed out my chocolate dessert - its on there- rich chocolate austrian special dessert, Mohr im hemd, a chocolate sponge made with ground almonds instead of flour - so suitable for vegan customers- covered in Rum infused warm chocolate sauce- looking forward to seeing you again enjoying my chocolate dessert More

Just returned from a really great meal here at the Old Vienna. Memorable dishes included Devon Wild things ( Confit Rabbit and seared pigeon breast with elderberries) and a fantastic fillet steak with a well balanced Stilton and port sauce. Lovely little smoked paprika and caraway bread rolls were serviced with starters and light and well presented desserts to finish-... More

Well Werner has done it again !!! We dined there quite a few years ago in the previous restaurant, and again when he was at Cockington Manor. The ambience last night was brilliant, and the diners so friendly. I cannot find a fault in the cuisine , everything was FANTASTIC. The schnapps to finish rounded the lovely evening off, we... More

Just had a wonderful meal on our anniversary. Hospitality and service efficient, but with such warmth. The lamb was a generous portion and very succulent, the wiener snitzel delish! Ample side vegetables. Only problem...I really wanted to try the apple strudel and the coffee parfait...but couldn't eat anymore! Would definitely recommend ..and will definitely return. Thank you Werner and your... More

A really fabulous little restaurant with an intimate dining experience, fantastic service and really great food. Slightly more expensive than you're average place but all three courses were out of this world and the Austrian dessert menu is to die for. Really lovely staff who were very accommodating around our young baby very late on a Sunday evening. The chef... More

This is a great place for food. Don't be put off by the surroundings - a tattoo parlour and takeaway in the same terrace! The food is really good. I had a sauté and sliced venison and wild boar sausage on sauerkraut for starters - gorgeous flavours and never had sauerkraut like this before. Main courses were scallops on a... More
