Recently re-opened by new, enthusiastic owners, this "Wiener Beisl" (something you cannot translate into English, but can be described as traditional Vienna-style tavern) is one of the few that are left in town. Atmosphere and decoration are simple and exactly as you would expect from such a place - no fancy stuff. Service is friendly. The absolute highlight is the... More

Genuine Austrian food. More than reasonable prices. High quality of food. Extremely helpful and alert staff (we were served by owner). Highly recommended.

I'm sure the food at Zum Friedensrichter is marvellous and that the atmosphere screams GENUINE VIENNA, but sadly we were not to experience any of that. A quick look at our two strollers made the waiter frown and shake his head fiercely, so we were forced to leave the premises without so much as having a look at the menu.

If you want real Austrian food at a very reasonable price this is the place. Without the crowds of the inner city the service is prompt and friendly, the portions huge and good. We stayed at a hotel near by and we asked the owner and he recommended this place. We were glad we came to dine.

simple but very good value for money. Traditional Vienna food - very good meat - nice atmosphere - friendly service - close to the centre of Vienna - one room reserved for smokers - very good czech beer (draft Budweiser). Its a perfect place if you want to show people from aboard a typical vienna restaurant
