It was our last night in Vienna. Tired but hungry, we decided to stay local to our hotel. Once again, we found a nice place to enjoy a meal. The price was right and the food excellent. My choice was pork with sauerkraut and a dumpling! Wonderful and no room for dessert. The service was attentive and once again we... More

Stopped in Hoofbrau to escape the torrential rain. It was early event on a threat and the place was deserted. A very big space with my self and tell other customers. I speak minimal German but managed to order a beer and a salad with prawns and mozzarella, which sounds odd, however turned out to be delicious and filling -... More

1) Dining atmosphere: Thanks to the amazing interior design and well-selected background music, Hoofbrau provides you with a romantic dining environment. 2) Food: My boyfriend and I followed the recommendations from Tripadvisor, and we enjoyed our meal so much. Specifically, we are particularly satisfied with the sliced beef with cream. Oh, if you love beer, you must also try the... More

We had a great time at Hoofbrau. The service was excellent with helpful advice from our waiter. Food was perfect! We sampled Beef Stroganoff and Turkey and Vegetables. Outdoor dining was quiet and relaxing!

The place looks nice. The service is courteous, but slow - even if the place is mostly empty. The portions are prettly large - I could barely finih a meal with no dessert. The food - well, probably it's a matter of taste, but: - Potato soup tastes like powder mushroom soup with some bits of potato added to the... More

It looked almost incredible how quiet place it was when we entered the restaurant at about 1 pm after hours of shopping in the crowded MariaHilfer strasse! Food was a common pub quality, big portions, service slow but very polite, beer very good.

This cheap restaurant is not easy to find. It is somewhat hidden between two large white buildings and behind a 'Wurstkiosk'. The food is simple but good. The restaurant has no pretentions in the way they present themselves. Good service friendly people and more important good and fesh food. For me this is what I expect in Austria of food... More

I'd first eaten at the restaurant some year and a half ago - back then, it was good enough, but it didn't stand out to me (I only had a salad). On our most recent trip to Vienna, however, we stopped here for a proper lunch and were very pleasantly surprised. Hoofbräu serves Austrian/Bavarian cuisine, with some more "international" dishes...

We searched many different review sites and headed up MariaHilfer strasse looking for another reasonably priced Austrian restaurant. It was cold and rainy ago our usual pickiness gave way to convenient. Tucked away at the end of a small plaza, we entered and were warmly greeted. Soups-both Potato and the other one Pumpkin were hearty and tasty. All 3 of... More
