Traditional Beer Hall with a large garden for the summer

Josef gets very crowded in the eveneings but has reasoable priced buffet lunch and a god brunch on Sundays and holidays. 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... read more

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

Really great service from the staff. They're attentive and take care of their little guests. The food (tapas) was ok - nothing extraordinary. The location struck me as being the best. From the outside (Landstr.), I just wasn't expecting Josef's to offer the space, a terrace and the separated areas for smokers and non-smokers to eat and drink.

Very posh, with relaxed and pleasant atmosphere. Great food with big variation. Cakes and cookies to dye for.

We went here on the last night of a two week cycling holiday in Czech Republic - whilst I know that Austrian prices are more expensive this was absolutely ridiculous - the beer wasn't even that great compared with Czech beer! Don't go here unless you are a millionaire !

We visited the pub on saturday afternoon, no croud at all. Not all meals from the daily menu were available. We waited for 15 minutes until we got served our soup. The soup was actually prepared in advance, so it took 15 minutes for someone to bring the soup to the table. While we were eating someone threw a big... More
