Good portions, goulash is nice, but if you are from Eastern Europe - then you definitely tried something similar at home. Dark beer was very good. My colleague ordered Schinzel and it was really good one. They don't serve tea, coffee so don't ask for it. Authentic interior. For small goulash, schnitzel and 2 beers we paid 26 Eur, so... More

We visited one evening in August. The beer was excellent, both the regular blonde and the dunkel. The waitress recommended the goulash, which was very good. The prices were quite reasonable. When we were ready to leave, the attentive staff were happy to arrange a taxi for us. We enjoyed our evening and would return if in the area again.... More

We tried this restaurant for the first time in August. It was a lovely sunny lunchtime so we sat in the beer garden, an internal courtyard, open air, with trees. There are no airs and graces about the place and it's unapologetically rough and ready. The service is great and the waitress we had must have had a wonderful memory... More

A large tables, where you will certainly sit with several groups of friends or several families, and a friendly staff who will quickly find a place for you, even though it may seems impossible. Pumpe is a traditional Austrian restaurant, which is main specialty - stew. You must visit it.

“Pumpe” is the best known pub of Klagenfurt. Having existed since the nineteenth century, it does not seem to have undergone major changes of appearance in the last decades. Relatively new is only the fact that smoking is no longer allowed in the inside areas. We went there on a Saturday for a late lunch. The place was still crowded... More

The Pumpe in Klagenfurt is fabulous. This is THE place for the locals and you can see why. Their speciality is gulasch with dumplings which is yummy. The beer is pretty good too. This is Carinthian hospitality at its very best. The locals know it so visitors should simply join in.

an english menu would be of help to explain the various dishes offered they serve many gulasch dishes, which is very interesting but with an only german menu, one might be lost...

Great Lunch, traditional food. A true great place to enjoy a beer or 4. Every time I'm in town I go out of my way for lunch and a beer. Could be pretty full in the evenings as this is a locals favorite.

Enjoy this very special pub atmosphere on your stay in Klagenfurt and have a beer (or two) together with the best Gulasch in town. You share your table with the true locals and experience good Carinthian and Austrian food and friendly waiters. Unfortunately no wlan available.
