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

After eventually finding this, the restaurant was very nice and not too expensive. The free bread was delicious. I had a chicken dish with sauce and dumplings which was very tasty. Owner wasn't overly friendly but food was good. Definitely one to visit if you want a small, cosy, traditional restaurant.

I took my wife here when we spent an overnight in Wien. As the title says we had a great time and the food was delicious. We did not book a table, but still we were able to eat a'la carte. I had Taffelspitz what is my favourite. I can't remember what she had :). Prices were decent too. All... More

It is a small restaurant with typical Austrian food. The "snitzel" is perfect. The wine list is good. The service is good. It is not far from the central part of the town.

My husband and I enjoyed our delicious dinners at Vienna's Kuckuck restaurant. We had incredible service with extra touches....like free little slices of apple struddel for dessert! We liked it so much, we returned on our final night in Vienna.

This was a beautiful small restaurant with a cosy feel. The interior décor was beautifully done with historical paintings featuring Franz Josef and numerous cuckoo clocks which provided a continuous symphony. Before we had left it was full showing its popularity. It was a good sign that locals were eating there. For entrée we had the cream of asparagus soup... More

I have not been back to Der Kuckuck since our family meal last Christmas but I had intended to and, together with my son, I visited it again a few days ago - I was very disappointed! When we booked earlier in the day we were asked if we were having the menu or eating al la carte. Not having... More
