Awesome atmosphere, good beer and food and friendly staff! I suggest the Schnitzel and Goulash Soup (It is the best I tasted in all of Vienna during my stay).

If you want to get away from the tourists and eat with the locals in Vienna, this is the place to eat. The food and the service was excellent and the atmosphere was priceless. The place was filled with locals and the owner really goes the extra mile for his customers to make them feel welcome. He had some great... More

Gasthaus Elsner is located close to our Pension (Pension Vitis) and within short walking distance. For dinner we had local beers, Goulash Soup, bread and local sausage. The prices are reasonable and we will return to try the other offers on the menu (especially the Wiener Shnitzel).

We had the pork goulash & the wiener schnitzel. The goulash was alright for me while the schnitzel is what one should expect from a Viennese restaurant. Crispy on the outside, tender on the inside. We also had the mix white & dark beer and it was good. We didn't had reservations and were lucky to be given a table... More

...and credit cards are not accepted. We didn't find the reasons the place has such high ratings. Definitely not worth a taxi ride we took from hotel. The wild boar and deer dishes sound more interesting than they tasted. No English menu for special menu.

Went here early without a reservation after looking up nearest eating places to hotel. Not disappointed. Good authentic Austrian food and beer at decent prices.

Excellent unpretentious plain good pub food. We got there after a proximity search in TA and ..... BINGO! .... Broth, goulash, wurst and vienner schnitzel were among the best ones ever tried. The young couple running the place are helpfull and close, despite they might be chatting and laughing with other regulars we were well attended. The atmosphere is warm... More
