“Waltz for Dinner?”
Reviewed August 9, 2013

We were worried that parking might be a problem as the map showed Old Vienna to be very close to a main road. The trusty SatNav took us around the back streets to a pleasingly spacious area and we parked right outside. Once inside, we found the decor to be welcoming and comfortable with pleasant wait-staff to look after us. The menu was interesting and tempting and we weren't disappointed when the food arrived. Cooked well and very tasty.
The icing on the cake (so to speak) was Chef Verner's colourful arrival from the kitchen with his exuberance and cheerful manner, especially when he insisted that everyone should have a schnapps on him before they leave.

“Wonderful Experience”
Reviewed August 8, 2013

Wonderful atmosphere, very unusual restaurant but the meal was lovely. It was a very informal restaurant and the chef came and joined the restaurant clientele later on in the evening, thoroughly enjoyed the whole experience.

“Wonderful”
Reviewed August 5, 2013

Got a table as a last-minute walk in and we were delighted! Fabulous food, a warm and relaxing atmosphere and very high quality schnapps! A reasonable wine list and excellent value for money.
