Old Vienna Restaurant Torquay, Devon

About Us

Chef/Proprietor Werner Rott is back in Torbay with a new menu of artisan cuisine with the Austrian touch. Having run a busy country pub/restaurant near Kingsbridge in Devon for the last six years, Werner has found himself a new challenge just one door down from where his original Old Vienna Restaurant used to stand. The building has been completely refurbished to a high standard with solid hardwood tables and contemporary leather chairs blended with elements of traditional Austrian decor. With seating for just 20 diners, this unique setting offers a personal service with exquisite cuisine made from seasonal local produce.

Customer Reviews:

Small but perfect restaurant with excellent staff and superb food. Could not fault any aspect of the food or the atmosphere. Definitely worth booking in advance. The apple strudel was amazing!

Torquay little gem, definitely worth visiting and reserving a table because you will not be disappointed. The staff and the chef are fabulous and the food is out of this world. So many tempting dished on the menu you we will have to stay for at least a week to work our way through it. Thank you for a very enjoyable evening again would definitely visit Torquay again to dine here.

Intimate,friendly restaurant with excellent food and a warm and welcoming atmosphere. The food is very tasty and very nicely cooked. The staff are keen to make sure that you are happy with everything. ( We were!) Carelessly, I left my reading glasses on the table and the restaurant took the trouble to phone us almost immediately and them drive them round to our hotel. This kindness rounded off a really special night. Would recommend Old Vienna unreservedly to anyone.
