Take a chance- menu only in German

Even though the menu was only in German we managed to order an excellent meal. The head waiter speaks English, but on the evening we were there was too busy to really help. Take a chance and go-- you wont be sorry.

A friend of mine and I decided to go have breakfast at the Cafe Engländer today based on reviews both on this site and reviews on local websites. I will quickly get the good out of the way. The staff are very friendly and the location is very good. Just minutes away from the U3 station Stubentor, various trams and... More

Our bed and breakfast owner recommend the Café Englander for our last night in Vienna. The menu was in German, but our waiter was great and went through each item in English. I ended up ordering the Wiener schnitzel aud veal cut with potatoes lambs and my wife had a pasta dish with mushrooms. Both were very good. For drinks... More

We went to Cafe Englander for lunch during a long visit to the Museum of Applied Arts, which is only a couple of blocks away. The restaurant came recommended for its Wiener Schnitzel (veal) and its set priced lunch both of which were tasty and gave us substantial leftovers for a nice dinner later that day. The restaurant lacks an... More

The "Engländer" is a real classical spot where Viennese go. They enjoy traditional food in a more sophisticated environment. You'll also regularly meet celebrities here - if you recognize Austrian actors.

We first visited the restaurant in late October - we arrived in the hotel fairly late, and we checked that this was pretty much the only restaurant nearby that was open at that time. It's in a fairly central location close to Schwedenplatz. We visited again in July this year. It's quite a traditional/classic establishment - though unpretentious. There was... More

Despite choosing to sit outside amongst the smokers, as it was such a hot evening, everything else turned out A,o.k. Having read previous reviews, we knew that the waiters could help us out with the menu, and they did, the service was good, but the meals really, really good. I chose the schnitzel and my husband, Rob, the pork and... More

We were looking for dinner and it was getting late...9.30 on a Wednesday and some places had stopped serving. We sat outside because it was a lovely warm evening. Yes, the menu is in German, but our waiter explained the choices and I had already decided that I wanted to try one of the standard favourites that are recommended when... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
