Excellent food lovingly prepared by the chef/patron.An interesting menu influenced by the owner's Austrian background. The home made fruit dumpling dessert is to die for !

Been intending to go for couple of years and finally made it. Shame didn't get around to the visit earlier. The food was splendid and completely up my street ie lots of delicious meat dishes. The Devon Game dish was out of this world. Service was great and will certainly be back.....

My girlfriend and I visited this restaurant two weeks ago having seen its reviews on Tripadvisor. Yet again I've had a predictably excellent meal out thanks to the reviews. With an interesting menu packed full of locally sourced ingredients and some dishes with an Austrian twist, this restaurant with its just over 20 covers will have you wishing you had... More

My husband and I visited Old Vienna our first night in Devon. It was absolutely delightful from start to finish. The food was really high quality and the service was top notch. I always think it's a good sign about a restaurant when the chef comes out to talk with the guests. Not only did he say hello and check... More

Chef Werner Rott came to table and explained certain dishes, even giving us his recipes. He shared schnapps with us at the end of the day. Definitely book as there are... More

My husband booked in April following Trip Advisor reviews. So glad he did as it was fully booked. Quite a small place but such fun and excellent menu. How to choose? We were greeted with a complimentary glass of champagne as this was a special occasion for us - 40 years since our honeymoon in Torquay. Werner kept popping in... More

A small quaint restaurant in Torquay. I would suggest booking in advance. The food was first class, the service was second to none and the ambience fabulous. I got a free glass of Champagne as it was my birthday and we were given free Schnapps at the end of the meal. Werner the owner and Amazing Chef came out to... More

This restaurant is small and friendly fine dining..Owner/chef Austrian Werner Rott is a great host. So much choice on the menu and the food is fantastic. Don't forget to have the complementary schnapps. I would advise booking a table because it's very popular.
