I booked for our 24th anniversary on a recommendation.
From outside small but very warm feel, greeted as you enter and instantly feel a regular, very comfortable atmosphere, no snobishness or pretence.
We were given a choice of tables, a glass of bubbly to celebrate from the owner and menus. The menu is varied and as we found out, not expensive for the quality we were served.
While waiting, which was not long at all, we were given a beautiful bread, warm and tasty.
I had duck confit, breast of lamb and a strudel to end. All 3 were cooked to perfection, if I had to choose 1 it would be the lamb, succulent and delicious. My wife loved her meal as much as I, we had a sauvignon blanc to accompany and coffee after. Oh, also had a glass of Eiswein, sweet and yummy.
The service was wonderful, everyone made us feel we belonged, it was very clean and an intimate dining experience. This is 1st class food without the pretentiousness of some other restaurants. A must visit and worth every penny. Will be back soon!

Werner has been at it long enough to have got it right. Good food well presented, intimate atmosphere, friendly efficient service, and when he finishes cooking he cares enough to talk with his diners. One of the better restaurants in Torquay.
