I have been eating twice at Kern's Beisel. The first time I had Gefüllte Schweinsbrust a Viennese classic Heurigen dish. It was excellent . The second time I had 'Zander', ( pike parch). On the menu it was offered deep fried but upon my request they served it panfried. Again the quality was excellent. I should also add that service... More

We visited this restaurant for lunch today, and were very pleasantly surprised. I had an excellent grilled chicken salad with balsamic dressing, and my husband had the goulash, which he said was excellent. The service was friendly but unobtrusive, and the food appeared very quickly. Reasonable prices, and we found the platefuls to be just the right size! Gerne wieder!

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

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
