As usual we had an excellent meal at Werner's. Relaxed intimate atmosphere with very good waiting staff. We had Brixham crab and confit duck/ pigeon breast starters, followed by ham wrapped pheasant and Wiener Schnitzel to follow. Great selection of game, such as venison and pheasant. There are vegetarian options also. Excellent wine list, but the house wine is perfectly... More

We first heard of this restaurant as we were checking out trip advisor for our mini break to Torquay and we were not disappointed. The restaurant is small but has a really nice atmosphere. We both had the house specialty Wiener schnitzel which was beautifully cooked and presented. There's a good selection of wine on offer. Service was very friendly... More

Another sublime dining experience at this cosy restaurant run by the gregarious owner/chef Werner Rott. Scallops wrapped in panchetta, fresh tasty soup with home made bread followed by goulash and venison steak. All with a 5 fresh vegetable selection. Deserts are a salivating delight. If you've not visited treat yourself.

Starter of scallops wrapped in bacon in a pea purée sauce was lovely, main of salmon on a cucumber and... More
