Within easy walking distance of the Hilton Vienna Danube, the Cafe Englander is obviously very popular with locals. There were not many tourists there. The food was excellent. Schnitzel was among the best I've ever had. Very good local beer as well. Reasonable prices and fast, friendly service.

I had a schnitzel. Great. Tender and the taste... awesome. The coffee is not what it should be. Great service nice waters, and they are making good jokes. If you pass by and need a breakfast or lunch don't hesitate to stop here.

My wife and I had been walking round the side streets of Vienna when we came upon the Cafe Englander restaurant. When we decided to go out for a dinner we thought that we'd give it a try. We were so pleased that we did. Although we didn't understand the menu we asked a young waiter to explain for us.... More

I HAD to have schnitzel during my short stay in Vienna. A local recommended this place and it was very good. The breading was crispy and light. The side of potato salad was also very good. Totally decent prices and good service.

I'm in Vienna for a month for work and my sister who lives here introduced me to Cafe Englander - which is very close to where I'm living. I've had dinner there twice - with my sister and with an American colleague. On both occasions we had excellent dinners - schnitzel, calves liver, fried chicken, fish on top of garlic... More

On the recommendation of the receptionist in a hotel here a few years ago I came here for breakfast and ended up here for breakfast every day. I always wanted to return to try dinner and finally made it. I had the Zwiebelrostbraten (roast beef with onions and may mother the Tafelspitz - both lesser known than the famous Wiener... More

It is not touristy at all. The dishes are classic and of excellent quality - every visit is a pleasure. Service is also excellent although typical Viennese, so be prepared for slightly arrogant waiters with a great typical Viennese sense of humor, which is an aquired taste ;-)

It is one of the my favourite places in Vienna. My husband is austrian and goes there for years. It is also the place where he has taken me for dinner during my first time in Vienna. It has its atmosphere and always full with locals. Better book a table: you can do it by email, check their website. It... 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.
