We originally tried to dine at The Old Vienna two years ago but it was fully booked at the time! On this occasion, we were in Torquay to celebrate our 10th Wedding Anniversary and booked a table well in advance. On arrival we were greeted by a very polite and attentive young lady who showed us to our table. We... More

We booked by e-mail before going on holiday having researched on Trip Advisor. Our booking was confirmed by a pleasant and friendly e-mail from Werner, the owner and chef. We were determined not to be late and caught the bus from Babbacombe too early arriving before they opened. We were however ushered in, sat down and offered drinks and the... More

Small but beautifully formed restaurant with great local ingredients cooked in authentic Austrian style. Can be hard to find rabbit and a schnitzel made with veal rather than then usual pork on offer. Imaginative starters to suit all tastes. Venison and wild boar sausages with creamy sauerkraut to start, tasty. Veal with hollandaise looked and tasted good. Vegetarians imaginatively looked... More

A second visit in 2 years to this little restaurant served to confirm that Werner, the owner/chef, has lost none of his charm or ability to turn out excellent food at reasonable prices.The dishes are interesting and varied. I couldn't resist the veal which was perfectly cooked and my companions assured me the venison was to die for. In the... More

We had nice starter of smoked duck, as a main veal which was perfect, desserts were real treats. Prices are on higher side but we left very satisfied. All guest were offered a... More

excellent food and a wide selection of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes to choose from. Verner! The owner and chef, comes out to see you at the end of your meal, which is a lovely touch, as is the free schnapps when paying the bill.

Having visited the restaurant last year, when I was last in the area, I couldn't wait to book here again and enjoy some really excellent Austrian food. I wasn't disappointed - It was fantastic again! Shame they didn't have my first choice of starter, but they did have everything else, and I wasn't sad to have had the sausages on... More

Large choice of dishes on the menu, all tempting so had to chose carefully(it will be an excuse to return to try the other dishes!). Had pigeon breast starter followed by fallow deer with wild mushrooms, and some... More

My wife & I had a thing or two to celebrate a couple of days ago so we decided to be difficult and picked a selection of three local restaurants to give them a chance to perform and see if we could actually recommend them to our hotel guests when they ask us where to go to in Torquay for... More
