Went to this restaurant on Saturday evening. Small but with a cosy atmosphere. Food was excellent - absolutely no negatives. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Go on treat yourself to the apricot dumpling - yum yum

Being local to Torquay we have been meaning to try Old Vienna for a while now. After (stupidly) trying - and failing - to book on November 5th we sensibly rescheduled for a couple of weekends later and headed across town on a cold November evening. The restaurant itself is compact, pleasantly quaint and welcoming. Thankfully it was a perfect... More

We went there last month while visiting friends in Torquay. We were trying to find a good restaurant when a friend told us about this place. We thought why not. We just got back from a trip to Vienna and one of our friends is half Austrian so we thought we would give it a go. The food was amazing!... More

This was our first visit but it will certainly not be our last. A fantastic meal begun with three lovely starters. Our steaks were spot on and the atmosphere was excellent. All I require is better weather when I return from Manchester! We also had a nice chat with mine host, although I am not sure that he appreciated my... More

Having recently moved to the area, it has been wonderful to find such a lovely restaurant. Werner the host brings that little bit extra to an evening full of wonderful food, and the staff are really great. Like a previous reviewer don't miss the Weiner Schnitzel and the Apfelstrudel.A wonderful evening we will return.

We had dinner at The Old Vienna this week. It was excellent in all respects. There was a good choice on the menu, the service was excellent, the food was beautifully presented and delicious to eat. The ambiance is friendly and cordial. Werner, the chef owner, adds that personal touch by coming to speak to his customers. He cooks from... More

Visited for my birthday and we certainly made an excellent choice. To begin we were brought some delicious warm home made bread made with chorizo I believe. I could eat a whole loaf! For starters we had the venison and wild boar sausages and the scallops. Both were beautifully presented and delicious. Moving on to the mains we went for... More

We were slightly disappointed. The waitress (poor thing) was somewhat uncertain about things but we were served quite promptly. The food was good but not outstanding. I don't think that we would choose to eat here again.
