Good beer

The beer garden for Josef is nice. The chairs are not the most comfortable, but the food was good as was the beer. There were LOTS of locals here, enjoying a drink and friendship.

We were seated right away in the garden at the other end of a table with another couple. The host made sure... More

Great central location, excellent food, cozy atmosphere, affordable prices. If you're hungry for a breakfast, dinner or lunch, this is definitely the place to go. They also have beautiful inner garden. Also good choice for bigger groups or business dinners.

This is half way down Landstrasse on the right hand side and we have been there on many occasions. The place is lively and the staff get your orders in fast. First time I came here was a sa student in 1966 and the atmosphere has hardly changed in all that time. great place for a night out with friends.

The food was delicious and well-prepared. Think juicy steak with a slightly crisply charred surface...tender lamb chop...crunchy sweet stewed vegetables. Staff could have been helpful...but this cold abrupt manner of service seems to be the norm and in Austria

In part of the Kaufmann building with a grand entrance from Landstrasse, it's a huge barn like pub. The main area inside allows smoking. At one side is a small room for nonsmokers that was booked out so I sat outside up one end to avoid smokers. A pleasant area with coloured light balls, heaters & fresh air! It was... More

Part of the garden has covered area which in winter can be closed so in autumn and spring time is still nice. Beer is brewed on the premises and you can sit and eat your food right next to... More
