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

We went there because it was close to our apartment. I ordered deep fried mushrooms with salad and with a sauce. They were very good, the only problem was that the menu was not available in English and so the waiter, who was fluent, had to translate it on the fly; he was very gentle. The place itself was nice,... More

We are a big group with multiple food allergies and this staff was welcoming, flexible, helpful and accommodating. They had just enough English and tried very hard to make everything work for us. Food was more than satisfactory and the overall experience was great. Absolutely recommend.

We found this Cafe mentioned in a Vienna guide book and decided to give it a try. Very nice friendly staff, nicely prepared and presented food. They do not have a menu in English but the staff took great care to explain each dish, as mentioned in other reviews the outside tables fill very quickly so booking is essential. We... More

I thought the lunch special was soup AND dessert with entree. It was soup OR dessert, but our waiter brought me dessert regardless. Plus, he said my gratuity was too generous and handed back to me 5 euro! My son had a fabulous steak. Outdoor tables fill quickly and you might want to reserve.

The name is confusing as we didn't want english food in vienna. But this place is far from english fair. The place is spacious bustling with locals on a saturday afternoon. No english menu..we panicked as did our waiter. Nonetheless he did a great job as we managed to order lunch. It helped to look at what others were eating.... More

We laughed when we saw the name but luckily the name was the only thing English about the place. Excellent service, amazing food, tranquil location in the centre of town. Loved it.

Visited here on TA recommendations. Lived up to expectations! Interior is clean and with a definite 1930's art deco feel. Staff friend and attentive and immaculately turned out. Smoking area separated from the non-smoking area with a glass partition that can be closed, and if you use the entrance on the right you don't have to pass through it. Menu... More
