Pretty Good

We were there as a large group with colleagues for an Xmas dinner. The reservation was quite easy and straightforward. They offered both a fix dish for a lower price or the normal menu for the normal price. They have a good variety of beer and of wine. And since it was the start of winter, it was... read more

We were in the tram and saw this café out the window, we got off the next stop and walked back to this wonderful café. We dined with locals not tourists and both our lunches were great and the service and atmosphere were both excellent.

We walked here on a rainy night on the recommendation of our BnB hostess. Good traditional Wien dishes at one of the oldest coffeehouses. We were shown the last open table on this Tuesday night and we appeared to be the only tourists present. Always a good sign when looking for traditional local food. The waiter was friendly and very... More

We ordered wiener schnitzel from pig but it was charged as veal. When we have confronted them we got difference back. The place is a scam and service is very poor. Avoid

Our hotel was close by and we just found ourselves eating here 2 times during our 3 day trip to Vienna. It's basically a cafeteria where you can get nice hot dishes aswell. The service was nice, English was fluently spoken. Prices were ok and food was okey, this is nothing special but it was good for us :) Mainly... More

It is a small cafe in calm area in the 4th district. Especially recommended in the summer when you can sit outside and enjoy a cup of coffee or another drink. Friendly staff, nice atmosphere.

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.

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 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.
