Proper old town Keller restaurant with good cafe food

Our group of four happened upon this for a late Sunday lunch and dived in as it is a genuine Keller, a basement venue. A huge labyrinth, about 500 covers, it has been a restaurant since the Turkish siege, almost 400 years. We found a booth and were advised by the athletic waitress it was self... read more

The place is very interesting, but we gave up after waiting 15 minutes at the table with no service. The only waiter that showed up told us to move from the table. On our 15 minute wait, we noticed that the place is for large tourist groups, so not our favorite kind of restaurant anyways.

Took some friends visiting Vienna for a meal at the Esterhazy Keller. The intention was to show them the ambience of an underground cellar with its ancient arched brick walls. The visit was a spectacular success. My friends loved the atmosphere of the place, the adventure of climbing down the steep entrance stairs and the labyrinth of rooms underground where... More

We found this restaurant incidentally and we really liked it! We went there with our little baby and some friends and had a nice time! This restaurant is bigger than you initially think... You can choose either some plates from the catalogue, or go to the kitchen and select something from the ''buffet'', which could be better by the way..... More

For the first time I was there in the evening - it was full of local people, great beers, wines and local food. Just lovely! Being there second... More

Found this restaurant on a tuesday evening. Without reservation and with a limited budget, this turned out to be an excelent choice. to get inside you have to descend a lot of stairs, where you finally get below surface in what looks like straight but long cellars. Two of them are used as dining rooms, as well as the connecting... More

We stopped in for a quick beer after a long day of sightseeing. The atmosphere is incredible. I highly recommend a stop in here for a drink and some time to relax before seeing more of amazing Vienna.

A labyrinth of cellars creates an interesting dining experience. The food is typical Austrian, of the type that can be found anywhere in Vienna. We had a long wait for our food.
