Eaten here twice and both times have been most enjoyable - run by a tight knit team

Venison was heavenly: full of flavour and melted in the mouth

Whilst there is a gamey influence to the menu there is fish and veggie as well (the kohlrabi main course was well liked by 2 of our group)

The warm raspberry pudding was a delight

The old Vienna has a warm informal atmosphere with food to die for.everything we ate was of the highest standard and presentation.we all much preferred it to the orange tree which we also dined at this week.we were fortunate enough to also witness a demonstration by the chef of his sculpting skills,very welcoming entertaining and above all relaxing which is seldom the case with fine food.

small, intimate and friendly place. try the steak with sumptuous sauce. good selection of wines. obviously, a slight Austrian theme. Our 10 yr old fusspot didnt like anything on the menu but the Chef/Proprieter went the extra mile and cooked her a great pasta. Wonderful!!!

My husband and I celebrated our Wedding Anniversary here last night. What a fabulous meal we had. I had crayfish tails with avocado and hubby had pigeon to start, Venison and Rabbit for mains, cooked to perfection. and then Summerfruits with clotted cream and Strudel with creme patisserie ( home made) for desserts, boy were they yummy !!. Coffee and home made chocolates to finish. Werner is such a great host and chef. Nothing is rushed and you are made to feel very welcome and "special". Werner joins you when he's finished cooking which is great. He's so amusing, chatty and friendly. The waitress is lovely too, so helpful and caring. Having only 20 maximum it's ideal for a cosy, romantic dinner. Will definitely be going back again. Oh, we had schnapps on Werner to celebrate too. A lovely touch. Thank you Old Vienna for a memorable evening.

I will recommend this beautiful little restaurant to everyone. Loved every minute of our evening and the food is fantastic. Everything we ate was delicious. The restaurant also had a very warm atmosphere and welcoming, helpful staff. It is a perfect venue for special occasions and the price is astonishingly reasonable for such wonderful food.
Everything was cooked to perfection and presented and garnished beautifully. Everything we ate really got the taste buds going. Dont be afraid to try things on the menu you have never eaten. You wont be disappointed.
Verner is an extremely talented chef and an absolute gentleman. We had a great chat with him after our meal shared a schnapps with him to top off the evening.
Thank you Verner and everyone at the Old Vienna for a perfect evening.

Yours
Arthur and Lilyana
