Excellent traditional food and best beer

About 70% frequenter would not allow any change of the interieur. Everything is well used what make the place extremely homely.

I had an excellent dinner with my friends here and we all agreed that the quality was superb. The service was very attentive and friendly, the waiter spoke English very well.

We really enjoyed this gasthaus. Great goulash and kasnudel. The beer is very good too. We are planning a trip back to Klagenfurt next year and we are looking forward to another visit.

If you like to visit a traditional Austrian Gasthaus, Pumpe is a Good Choice. Enjoy the best beer in Klagenfurt and feel the extraordinary athmosphere. But be aware it can be hard to get a Set.

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
