After reading reviews was looking forward to a visit. The food was excellent but the portions very small. We had a single portion of vegetables between us and were left feeling hungary. The service was slow even though they had plenty of staff. Compared to other restaurants in Torquay that offer better value we were left feeling disappointed.

Excellent food and service. Food is well cooked and is served hot. Prices are reasonable. This is only a small restaurant so booking a table well in advance is a must. 2nd time I have been and hope to revisit on my next trip to Torquay.

From start to finish everything was lovely . We were celebrating our Ruby wedding and we were treated to a glass of Pro Secco on the house for us and our guests. That set the scene . We all chose different things and all were totally delicious and cooked with love . We really felt special and although this was... More

Our party ordered a variety of options from fillet steak, chicken, pork to lamb. Everyone commented that the food was superb. And you can tell that the chef has a passion for the food that... More

Tucked away a little but worth digging out for a great meal. Frendly service and un hurried. Portions are enough if you want to sample all courses and very tasty. Authentic menu for Austria cuisine only criticism would be with the looped music which must repeat itself every 20 mins or so. Complimentary schnapps afterwards finished the night off well.... More

Such an unusual restaurant in more ways than one. It's a bit like entering into someone's front lounge when you walk into the dining area but the tables are far away enough from each other to not feel on top of one another. The menu choice is just right (some places have far too many choices) - I went for... More
