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

The food was excellent. We had the wiener schnitzel and beef rump with dumplings. The food was good, but I think that the highlight was the dessert - apfelstrudel with gelato and creme. Con: service was good, but slow (only one server/cashier/host)

Very good and traditional food, big portions and good prices - I would recommend especially the Topfenkönodels for a dessert. Very helpful staff and good service, lovely atmosphere and cozy restaurant, all of these made the dinner a great experience for us. Erittäin hyvää ja perinteikästä ruokaa, isot annokset ja kohtuulliset hinnat. Erittäin avulias henkilökunta ja hyvä palvelu, viehättävä ilmapiiri... More

Highly recommended by the hotel staff for authentic Austrian cuisine, we headed out to Der Kuckuck. Can easily be missed as the entrance is quite inconspicuous but once you step in you enter a world of Austrian food and cuckoo clocks.....very tasty Austrian food accompanied with some very nice Austrian wine at not such a high price. I agree with... More

The restaurant is quite small but seems to be frequented by tourists and locals. The food was very good and the cuckoo clocks that go off frequently add to the character. Well worth a visit if you want local food.

Was recommended this restaurant by our hotel. It is small , old fashioned and as the name indicates has several cuckoo clocks on the wall.

The restaurant is very cozy and brings a special atmosphere that really makes you feel in heart of Vienna. It is a bit pricy but we are very glad that we had our dinner here. The portions were good and the food - very delicious.
