We had lunch comprising of schnitzel, pumpkin risotto, beef & onions and goulash and it was great. The service was friendly, prompt and courteous and for the centre of Vienna it was very reasonable, 74 euros including drinks. Would highly recommend for authentic and very good quality food and good service.

Small, cozy restaurant/bar tucked away on a small alley, but right in the heart of the city. Despite the comments of fellow Anglophones, we were treated quite well - perhaps because we spoke (or attempted to) German first. Our waiter continued to speak to us in German even after it was clear that it was not our first language --... More

Me, my 4 year old daughter and my daughter first sat outside and had couple of drinks and then wanted to move inside to eat. One waitress showed us a table. After we sat and a waiter came and told us the table is reserved. While some others did this table did not have any "reserved" sign on it. When... More

I wandered around Vienna looking for something good but cheap (which is a bit difficult). I was impressed and had a great experience. My waitress was way overworked with the number of people in her section. But she was attentive and helpful and made the experience fun. I sorted my choice of dinner down to 3 and let her make...

Went to this restaurant today to eat, before we even started it was quite clear the waiter didn't like tourists - very impatient. After 10 mins it wAs quite clear that locals are treated better and English speakers are treated differently - when asking for help to translate the menu the waiter was rude and uninterested. we hadn't even finished...

A really good little restaurant offering tasty Austrian food in a friendly atmosphere. Great goulash! Reasonable prices. This little gem is just two minutes away from the cathedral but is tucked away on a quiet pedestrian sidestreet, away from the traffic and the tourists.

Our group of 7 stumbled upon this unassuming little cafe and all thoroughly enjoyed our meals. The Goulash and Pumpkin Risotto were outstanding. A special meal was organised for one of our party who has to eat gluten free. There was food envy all round, so we returned the following day to try other dishes. For a very reasonable and... More

Go to this restaurant in the old city, good value for money, excellent goulash, good service, and a real local feel. We visited several local restaurants but this was the best.

Ordered Vienna schnitzel and goulash, they brought out a small basket of stale bread. When the bill came, they charged me 5 euro for the bread that I did not order. The waiter made a big scene and the food was average. There have to be many better restaurants than this one, stay away. Try der kuckkuck or lubin!

Even though the food was decent, the service was terrible. The waiter was rude, and then brought us bread we didn't order, and then tried to charge us 5 euro for the bread. After an argument with the manager, they took the bread off the check and asked us to leave, despite spending 40 euro. AVOID this place.
