We've been here so many times! The food is lovely, the ambience is great and the hosting is unique! The chef always comes out to greet his guests & once even gave us a lift home as it was raining! This place is excellent and I would highly recommend it!!

A little bit Vienna in Torquay, Intresting menu with great combination of different foods which complemented which other. Lovely warm atmosphere, Then there is the great owner from walking in to leaving, such a warm welcome from a man with passion for food and drink great experience will definitely be back,I would highly recommend the restaurant.

This was the first time my wife and i experienced Austrian cuisine and we were not disappointed. The food was excellent! The service provided by the staff was even better! By the end of the evening both my wife and I felt that were with old friends. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone who want to experience great home... More
