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

We started our week in Linz by having a long brunch at Josef, a slow graze through the ample buffet. We returned for dinner on Monday and enjoyed another great tasting meal. The attraction of Josefs was all too much so we returned for dinner again on Wednesday, this time our local contact arranged a private room and a thorough... More

The reviews about this place that I read on tripadvisor were true. The service was appalling. We had to ask 3 times for menus. At two separate points during our extremely slow dinner, I looked around the room and every person in it (about 20) had empty glasses. When the waiter would finally come back in, he would be bombarded... More

If you enjoy some beers and a nice dinner with your colleagues after work and if you like to smoke and listen to some music, this is a nice place to go. If you want silence and a romantic athmosphere, go somewhere else. The food is good but not exceptional. Given the prices it is absolutely fair. It is mid-town... More

...they brew their own and this well is a good one. Thebfood is only average and for that quite expensive, the worst thing however is the service and the atmosphere: they only really cater the smoking area, there is a nonsmoking area only to comply with legal requirements. To sum up, it is neither comfy, nor party but still packed... More

The Josef is actually one of Linz's hotspots and always quite packed. Unfortunately the food tastes just average and the staff is most of the time horribly overstrained and not too friendly. Nevertheless it's a great place if you just wanna have a beer!

If you need a beer in the middle of town this is the place to go. If possible see that you dont need to eat there as this is not that great. Nevertheless the atmosphere in this restaurant is very nice and it does not matter if you are inside or in the lovely garden.
