Booked well in advance as only visiting Torquay for the weekend and restaurant isn't very big. Staff were friendly and polite. We started with some lovely free warm bread. For starters I had the duck salad, silly me I didn't realise the duck would be served cold so it wasn't entirely to my taste but it was still good. My... More

This is our second visit to Old Vienna and it was excellent again. We enjoyed my 50th birthday evening here in the summer, so this time we bought my mother for her 80th and were not disappointed. Great variety of food on offer, beautifully cooked and presented. The atmosphere is good and the young staff were lovely. Werner always comes... More

We revisited this restaurant again last week on our holiday in Devon and the food is just as fantastic as our visit last year. Werner comes to everyone's table in turn to chat and make sure everyone is happy. The food is beautifully cooked and presented. The service is first rate. Make sure you book in advance as it is...

Have to class myself as a bit of a foodie, but this restaurant went above and beyond expectations. The service is excellent, Werner comes out of the kitchen to check with each table that everything is OK. The menu has an excellent and varied selection, the desserts all made to order and all just that little bit different. Small wine... More

We booked well in advance thank goodness, as Werner's food is to die for. The little bread rolls with smoked paprika were amazing and set the standard for the rest of the food. The service and welcome were first class, and Werner comes out and checks everybody. Unbeatable :-)

Werner certainly knows his craft. We enjoyed every course, the service and the atmosphere. There's little to say other than this is special and there's no better way to understand that than to go and try the Old Vienna for yourself. I can't imagine you could be disappointed.

First visit last night; it will not be our last! Delightful food from an interesting menu, unobtrusive service and relaxed atmosphere. It was my partner’s birthday and a good friend came to pick us up. He is a virtuoso violinist who was playing ‘Happy Birthday’ as we were leaving. This attracted some people out into the cool night air and... More

Thank you Tripadvisor for pointing out this fabulous restaurant to me. I found the overall experience fantastic with a happy, friendly service team serving up very very good food in warm, comfortable surroundings. Werner, the chef/owner, is an absolute character and made an appearance in the restaurant where he quite happily chatted to his guests, nicely rounding off a fun... More
