I took my wife to the Old Vienna to celebrate her recent birthday after the restaurant was recommended to us by friends. We were made very welcome by the staff and were very impressed by the menu - all the courses available sounded really appealing and we found it difficult to make a choice. We had three courses each - all different - with a bottle of wine. The quality of the food was amazing, the wine was fabulous and we both really enjoyed the whole evening.We were very impressed - we plan to visit Torquay regularly over the next few years and a return visit to the Old Vienna will be top of our list of priorities!

We have been here countless times and each time it is such a lovely personal experience. With only a few tables and a small bar area, Werner fills the room with his passion for food and drink, yodelling as he cooks. He always makes an effort to come out and talk to his guests and sometimes even offers a schnapps on the house after your meal! With delicious fresh food cooked from scratch by Werner's own hands this place is a must visit. He always has something different on the menu to tempt your taste buds. A real gem in Torbay. Booking ahead is a must as it fills up fast!

We ate here with my mum and step dad and thoroughly enjoyed it. Everything was spot on! We all had the deer steak which was absolutely stunning! Even my very fussy husband tried and loved all the food! Werner the chef chatted to us for some time at our table and shared a glass of Austrian schnapps on the house. WILL be back!

Hubby and I arrived at Torquat quick late in a November Sunday evening and decided to go to a closish restaurant. So glad we picked Old Vienna.

The food is DELISH, absolutely devine. The service was wonderful, it's a small restaurant the atmosphere was so friendly and warm we immediately felt at home.

And Werner the chef we absolutely adore him! He makes the evening more enjoyable than any other ouring we ever had.

How I wish we live closer I eleven surely be there all the time.

And oh...whatever Werner calls it, be it "flu jab" or "antifreeze", the after dinner drink is a must try.

My husband and I had an superb evening here. The food was totally delicious, you would be hard pushed to find better anywhere, we could not fault one single thing, this is equivalent to Michelin starred dining but without the hefty prices. The restaurant is small, intimate and has such a lovely warm atmosphere. The waitresses were very friendly and you could not fault the attentive service. My only complaint is that we did not meet the infamous Werner as he was away! We will definitely be back when we visit Torquay again, thank you.
