Good food with less than acceptable service

I was seated quickly in this very large restaurant. The waiter did not listen to what I was saying but responded to what he thought I should have. It would have helped if there was an English translation to the accompaniments. There are loads of English speaking clients who frequent the... read more

We decided to dine at Plachutta because of its proximity to the Opera House. We I understood that the food would be traditional style and it was. The food itself was exactly as described, well prepared and cooked. The wait staff however appeared to be more interested in table turnover than allowing diners to enjoy their meal. Our starter arrived... More

Plachutta was recommended by a colleague as an essential Viennese experience while on a recent trip. Location is very central, and the place gets very busy even on a quiet night when it's nearly dead outside, so recommend to book in advance (we've seen people having challenge to book one night in advance). Menu is not big, but a house... More

This restaurant is famous for it's unique recipe for traditional Vienna soup Tafelspitz. The meat in the soup is so gentle, flavors of it are so amazing. With a glass of good, calm red wine it is a perfect pairing. Just go there and try, you'll be happy

We each had the weinerschnitzle For about 20 Euros each. They give you two large pieces of very thin veal, along with a little bread and potato salad. One surprise occurred when I got the bill, there was a charge of four Eurofor having table cloth.

This restaurant gathers many great pros. Beside its good location in the beautiful city center, it is a good place to lose resistance for keeping your diet. The quality of meat and way of cocking double the flavor and makes you less vegetarian the time you eat there.

It is a lovely place; wonderful service. If not too hot; eat in the outdoor area. We had the Tafelspitz meal for two; which they are renowned for- it was delicious!

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.
