Very nice terrace and romantic athmosphere

It's a really nice place for drinking outside in the garden in a warmer evening. Inside it's also cosy and with a typical old Viennese ambiance - perfect for Sunday breakfast.

Great atmosphere and tasty food. We weren't able to sit in the garden but it looked great. I personally think it is one of the best authentic restaurant in this area.

Great Fontaine nearby. Fresh beer, tasty food, cozy Viennese atmosphere. Trams are passing by... Staff is a bit cheeky but polite. Better wear them not black Polo shirts. White ones! Take a sit outside when it's sunshine weather.

The place serves very nice home-style Austrian food, nice house wine, great relaxing atmosphere. The soups were excellent, schnitzel delicious, portions so large that we were not able to try the desserts, and we ordered just two soups and two mains for a family of four). Excellent place for informal family dinner, great value for money, recommended!

have been here on a few occasions normally for lunch. Tonight went for dinner. Maybe they have a different crew on a Sunday evening but they seemed far more interested in talking among themselves than bringing a menu, and the only guests they were really attentive to were younger people around their own age. Nevertheless the schnitzel was good, plentiful... More

After touring a large part of Europe we landed in Vienna for 5 days, renting an apartment. We asked the owner for a nearby restaurant where the locals go. He recommended Cafe Wortner and we ended up eating here 4 nights out of 5. The traditional food was always hot, served quickly, and the ingredients fresh from the salads to... More

I had lunch with friends at this restaurant. As it's recommended by my Viennese friend, I was pleasantly surprised that Schnitzel tastes really good. It's also good to experience family and local atmosphere there. The staff was very attentive and helpful, although there's no English menu. Overall, it's highly recommended for tourists who want to experience authentic Schnitzel and Kalbs... More

Restaurant looks lovely from outside and decor is muted tones- classic and understated classy! Waiters possibly the friendliest in Vienna ?!! Children welcome. Great relaxed atmosphere. Food traditional- not gourmet but wonderful home cooked style food. Presented well and tastes delicious !! May have to come back for breakfast tomorro?!
