We had dinner here. Menu are in German only but the waiter was very polite and translates all the dishes for us. Food was good and prices in line with the location.

From the outside it looks a little plain, but step into a clean, modern, well arranged place with good seating. Attentive waiter will soon take your order (you may need to ask for translation menu) but that is no problem. I enjoyed a good Viennese expression on the English breakfast : scrambled eggs, herbs, smoked schinken (not bacon but yummy),... More

This was the third Austrian restaurant that we were hosted at by our Viennese hosts. This one is right in the centre of town, but most of the clientele appear to be local. Having had my fill of schnitzel I went for a "poorer" Austrian dish, tafelspitz. This is boiled beef in a vegetable bouillon served with chives, apple sauce,... More

Cafe Englander was recommended to us by a nice Viennese lady my husband and I met in another restaurant. "You have to go try the schnitzel," she said. "It's probably the best in Vienna." Mind, I'm not a real schnitzel person. But lord, it was good. First a word about the service. The menu is entirely in German --- and... More

Visited as a group of four for dinner last week. Every single meal (sauted liver, pork filet, fried goatcheese wrapped in bacon, schnitzel) was really good. Many guests but waiting time for food war ok. Nice, attentive waiter. No tourist place so can have a nice experience of the old vienna restaurant style. Would recommend reservation, espacially for dinner.

We stumbled in here looking for dinner for a group of us and not liking the look of other places. They were not very full which can be a warning sign but I think that this is due to the off the main street location as the food was excellent. I had the schnitzel which was delicious. The service was... More

I went there for a business trip and wanted to try Austrian food, I ordered a main dish which was pork and dumplings and sauerkraut. The food was amazingly good waiting time was okay about 15 to 20min. I would have given it 5 stars if the waiter was nicer. He seemed stressed and didn't really take care of us.... More
