Many thanks Werner for another great eating experience. Loved the Austrian Goulash! Superb food and excellent service, we will be returning as soon as we have another special occasion to celebrate.

The evening was really good. We have friends who we take it in turns to choose a restaurant or pub for a meal. This was our choice. The meal, the ambience, the staff and the host were superb!

We had our meal at this restaurant for this trip on Sunday evening and it was comfortably full. Once again, the food & wine was lovely-our dishes cooked & presented well and we tried an Austrian white wine this time. It's good to experience dishes that are local to Werner's homeland. Prost!

Having read reviews of the restaurant, we were keen to try it. It was cosy and intimate, so much so we heard the running commentary of two other (loud) diners for most of the evening.The food was lovely, Werner was a great host, but we did wait an awfully long time for our main course. The main disappointment for us... More

We were not disappointed, excellent food & service. Sunday evening & it was full with one busy waitress but she coped very... More

This is a special little restaurant. The food was absolutely delicious. The chef, Werner, makes an effort to meet all the diners and is a genuine character. By the time we left we were deliciously full, entertained and very happy. We look forward to our next visit to Torquay so that we can return to The Old Vienna.

Went for our wedding anniversary and were given complimentary glass of fizz on arrival.As always the food was to die for-if you have not been here you must go. Werner the Austrian owner/chef is the star with his yodelling and peach schnapps he shares with you when he comes to have a chat after your meal.The only regret is that... More
