Nice Intimate little Restaurant

Great little restaurant in a side street away from the hustle and bustle of Stephansplatz. Typical Austrian cuisine and wine, friendly service, interior a little shabby-chic but a nice cosy atmosphere I would say great for a nice romantic meal or special occasion like a birthday.

I was for Dinner in "Der Kuckuck" with my wife. It is a surprisingly small restaurant which nevertheless serves a great variety of food that tastes as good as it looks and sounds. Service is friendly without being intrusive. You should like Viennese music (not Schrammeln but at least Walzer) because this music is playing all the time - not... More

We've been to this charming restaurant several times, enjoying each and every meal along with the friendly service natural for smaller establishments like this one, but best of all was the six-course dinner we had on Christmas eve with visiting family. I heartily recommend it as a great holiday event or as a venue for good food, good service, and... More

Finding somewhere to eat in Vienna on a Sunday evening is not easy, and after much street pounding my friend and I came across this place. The restaurant serves typical Austrian food, which is not my favourite, so I can't really be objective about the dishes we were served. It was OK. Service was friendly and efficient (we were one...

With only 10-12 tables is small, but its like having dinner in a friends home. True to its name the walls have cuckoo clocks that add a home like atmosphere as they cuckoo in the background. The food and service were great and being in the center of the city, its easy to get there.

Booked to dine here on Christmas Eve. Whe I first contatced them they were booked out for the time we requested but placed us on a waiting list. Just before we left Ireland they emailed us to say they had a cancellation - I was very impressed. On the night they had 4 sittings. While we had a short wait... More

We had a Reservation for yesterday at 10:30 pm after a Theater Performance. They accepted the Reservation and asked for a phone number. When we came there, guess: the Restaurant was closed and nobody called before to inform us. My idea is that is/was the first step in the direction of bankruptcy. So when you are hungry, take another choice... More

Really cute restaurant with good food and great service. The prices were reasonable. The lone waiter did a really good job of taking care of us. We made a reservation, but didn't seem to need it since we went on the early side (6:30). Located right off the Kartner Strasse. I loved that they had several Cuckoo Clocks (the name... More

Chestnut soup was delicious, boiled beef was very well cooked. Good range of typically Austrian food and reasonable prices... Service was very good given there was only one waiter. Highly recommended!

This is a little place tucked away in a side street of the main shopping venue and only few meters from St.Stevens Cathedral. Great traditional food and good wines at reasonable prices served with a smile from the Chinese (!!) owner ( don't worry his wife and mother-in law who are Austrian are in the kitchen). Nice atmosphere and good... More
