Werner, the proprietor, is nothing short of a genius as a host and as a chef. The food is second to none and the hospitality and atmosphere is fantastic. Be sure to book ahead as this restaurant is very popular and deservedly so in my opinion. I have had the pleasure to live and work in Austria in the past and can safely say the UK benefits from Werner setting up shop here. When in Torquay, do as the locals do, and visit this gem of a restaurant. You will not be disappointed!

Visited The Old Vienna on Easter Saturday night with family who were visiting from London. As per usual we had a fantastic meal and the family were very impressed saying that it was one of the best meals they had ever had in a restaurant and they eat out a lot. BIG thank you for a very enjoyable evening.

Best place we have visited in a long time. The food here is top notch, really we'll presented and cooked to perfection, the staff are very efficient and attentive. The menu is superb, really great ingredients with the odd little twist that makes it different. We visited on Good Friday evening, it was really busy but the chef / proprietor paid a visit to every table after the meal with complimentary Schnapps, and a chat. This is an unbelievable dining experience and not to be missed, really good value for money an very, very special.

We were lucky enough to book a table on a night that the restaurant is normally closed due to a private booking. Werner is so friendly and funny and the meals were excellent. The unusual menu made it hard to choose yet we couldn't help feeling that anything we would have chosen would have been delicious.
