We went twice in 4 days!

We came here twice for dinner so we must have liked it! To be honest, the food is fine and tasty but nothing amazing (mainly the dumplings, schnitzel, strudel etc traditional sort), it's the atmosphere of the place that is really special. Very cosy, relaxing and warm with a great buzz of locals and... read more

This was one of the best meals we had on our trip to Austria. Delicious goulash, yummy salmon. Definitely a pub atmosphere, with shared tables and loud surroundings, but more high end food than a traditional pub. Staff was very friendly and welcoming. Don't miss it...the sign with the monkey on it!

The staff was super nice. This place came highly recommended and we felt very lucky to get in without a reservation. The food was good but I did not leave there thinking WOW this was great. Although looking back, it was probably the best weiner schnitzel I had during my 2 weeks in Austria. My daughter's pasta was very good.

Excellent food, beers, drinks, atmosphere, and most important of all, exceptional services from staff, thanks to Christian (aka Cheese) and his manager Michael. They are the best staff to have in a restaurant!!! Would definitely come back here again!

This place had a great atmosphere, the food was delicious and I would definitely go back. I would reserve a table as it's very popular.

Austria is a little behind in smoke-free dining with many restaurants still having inside smoking and non-smoking sections side by side. This one is a small restaurant which has apparently chosen to go completely smoke free and provides a small smoking stand outside the door. The traditional Austrian food does have a modern spin and was excellent (I didn't really... More

Some reviews say it's noisy and it is and also very busy! This adds to the atmosphere of the place. I don't like that dogs are allowed in though and climbing over the seats. Not hygienic! Having said that the goulash with dumpling and a fried egg is delicious! The dessert choc dumplings were also good, thou we had better... More

Dined here in early January. Made a prior booking via email which was responded to quickly and confirmed. The restaurant is located across the river from the Alstadt and is a really nice setting. Very nice inside, good layout and it was really busy which is always a good sign. Food is traditional Austrian and I had the best Wiener... More
