A second visit in 2 years to this little restaurant served to confirm that Werner, the owner/chef, has lost none of his charm or ability to turn out excellent food at reasonable prices.The dishes are interesting and varied. I couldn't resist the veal which was perfectly cooked and my companions assured me the venison was to die for. In the Torquay area,if you are looking for a really good evening dining out in relaxed surroundings then the Old Vienna must be at the top of your list.

We booked the restaurant in advance. Managed to come with an hour delay due to traffic but still we're welcome by nice personal and very pleasant chef. We had nice starter of smoked duck, as a main veal which was perfect, desserts were real treats. Prices are on higher side but we left very satisfied. All guest were offered a glass of schnapps which we don't drink but had a taste of an awesome pumpkin oil instead.

excellent food and a wide selection of meat, fish and vegetarian dishes to choose from. Verner! The owner and chef, comes out to see you at the end of your meal, which is a lovely touch, as is the free schnapps when paying the bill.

Having visited the restaurant last year, when I was last in the area, I couldn't wait to book here again and enjoy some really excellent Austrian food. I wasn't disappointed - It was fantastic again! Shame they didn't have my first choice of starter, but they did have everything else, and I wasn't sad to have had the sausages on sauerkraut instead!
The wine list is fantastic - lot's of Austrian wines, many I had not heard of or tried before, the wines I have had here have always been of the highest quality (and I am very fussy with wine).
The chap who is both chef and owner is genuinely friendly and takes an interest in his customers. It was just a shame that this year there were only three tables taken the night I visited. I do hope this is a rare thing for him, as he deserves to be full every night as the Orange Tree and No7 appear to be.
