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

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

While staying at a guest house just down the road we called in at around 19.00 on the off chance of a table for two only to be told that they were fully booked but they would set a table by the reception for us which we accepted. The two young waitresses were extremely helpful and curteous and while they... More

We live near Torquay, but this was our first visit to the old Vienna. It will not be our last. The staff were helpful and friendly, the food wonderful and we had a very pleasant evening. I would recommend this as a restaurant in Torquay. Many thanks to the owner/chef and staff. Liz Alsbury

Visited The Old Vienna for the second time for my wife's birthday. Werner had a glass of champagne waiting for her. The meal was superb, service great and I cannot rate this restaurant any less than five star. We shall certainly be back.
