Schnitzel and Stiegl!

If you want traditional Austrian, with a gay twist - this is it. The food is great and the staff are friendly (and handsome).

I had a great meal here. The food was well prepared and tasty. The staff was very friendly and made you feel at home. If you want to eat here, you may be wise to make a reservation. This is a popular place and I was lucky that they had room at the bar. Like many restaurants in Vienna there... More

Dragan and Zjelko, the owners are the most perfect hosts you'll ever meet. We've been going here now for two years, sometimes on a weekly basis and apart from the fact that we know them now so well, I've never seen them not be gracious and welcoming to the loneliest of traveler stumbling in or a group of friends just...

Sixta was great! It's very conveniently located near the Vienna Ubahn, and very nicely decorated. The menu lists typical Austrian dishes but I tried the carrot soup and the anti-pasta entre. Both were delicious. Together the two dishes made an excellent meal. The anti-pasta was fresh properly, seasoned with a light dressing. The best thing about Sixta though was the... More

We ate here on New Year's Day. I had been given a vague recommendation for the place. It turned out to be a good one. The staff were exceptionally friendly - excellent English. The ghoulash was tasty, the Merlot very good and the ginger tiramisu (more like a mandarin/ginger biscuit trifle - I'm not complaining!) yum. Obviously new interior and... More

This was close to our hotel and a really cosy atmosphere on Sunday night. Very friendly staff, all made a real effort to explain the menu in English. Not the tastiest food I've ever had but my partner chose better than me and maybe ordering "boiled beef" wasn't the most sensible thing for me to go for on the menu!... More

Hard to get a table but with the possibility to sit in the bar and have a meal (or if lucky a table) this place are with every recommendation. The food is priced good well made and brought to you by staff more or less knowing everyone walking through the door. Very positive experience.

Had passed by a couple of times already and it appeared to be very jolly. Tonight we went for dinner and the staff and food were amazing. They have a regular menu and one with specialities of the month. I had a fabulous potato-mushroom-truffle soup and a mushroom risotto and my partner the carrot-ginger soup and a traditional 'Cordon bleu'... More

My partner and me were here during our Vienna trip. We found nice place with delicious local cuisine and friendly staff. Sixta's owners were inside and asked us we enjoy our food and drinks. We had a great evening.

Staying in Margareten

Neighborhood Profile
Margareten
This former working class district blends hip eateries and avant-garde cinema with a time travel into 1950s Vienna. Feel the district’s pulse at Margaretenhof and Schlossquadrat. 19th-century Margaretenhof is a local icon, yet has very non-Viennese architecture with its brick structure and cast-iron verandas. The nearby urban Renaissance castle of Schlossquadrat houses several restaurants. In the summer you can sit in its romantic shady courtyard over Schnitzel and Kracherl (traditional fizzy syrup). Siebenbrunnenplatz and its surrounding shops and grocery stores have remained virtually unchanged in the past 60 years: taking a walk there is like stepping into a 1950s film set. Speaking of movies, head to avant-garde cinema Filmcasino in the evening. It often stages foreign language cult films.
