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

No English menu available & ordered of German menu. Recommended was the boiled frankfurter sausage in Goulash soup with a dry bread roll.... That's what we got?

It was a nice little café, but not the best. I had the calamari and it wasn't the best I ever had, but it was good. The apple strudel I had for dessert was yummy. I wouldn't go out of my way to go there, but if you're in the area it's a good place to go.

Real Viennese café - not even an English menu in sight but if you need help - the waitstaff will gladly translate. We of course had weinerschnitzel which was large and perfect - potato puffs with a delicious wild mushroom cream sauce, weisswurst, sauerkraut and steaks with French fries. Everything was cooked perfectly and was of high quality and delicious!... More

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

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.
