I had one of the nicest meals in a long time at Plachutta. THe service was extremely attentive. The wine selection is large with a wonderful representation of the diversity of Austria's many wines and regions. When you're there you have to go for the classic of Tafelspitz.

This place is only a few blocks from the Albertina (museum) and I wandered past the outdoor seating in the middle of a rain storm. Stopped in, thinking I would grab a quick lunch, and not at all expecting the best meal in Vienna. Prices are reasonable for Vienna - figure about $20-30 depending on how much wine you want... More

having arrived at the sofitel hotel vienna, this finest restaurant was the first stop for our romantic dinner in the heart of city vienna. It was a perfect timing of having good weather and this candle light dinner. You should choose the best seats outdoor and order the marvelous and delicious tafelspitz (Tafelstueck) here because you will be served by... More

My wife and I went here on the recommendation of our hotel concierge, when we asked for authentic Austrian cuisine. It features Tafelspitz, a boiled beef dish. I'm not fond of beef stews, and had no expectations of this restaurant, but my wife wanted to try it. The restaurant itself is like a busy bistro - every table was filled,... More

This is a popular, very busy Austrian restaurant offering all the traditional meat dishes and specializing in Tafelspitz or boiled beef. Service is adequate, the atmosphere is lively and if you love Austrian food, this might be a good choice. I found the schnitzel to be underwhelming and no better than any other place serving a paper thin slice of... More

This restaurant was fantastic! The Tafelspitz is their famous specialty. It is slices of beef and vegetables in a delicious broth that is served to you in copper pots and you can order extra "sides" to go in the broth. The meat is ribeye, tender, juicy and delicious. Also, the goose liver pate was the best pate we have ever... More

NOT the best tafelspitz in Vienna, though it is not horrible. First of all we ordered one to share, we thought, but it turns out we ordered 2 taflespitz's at 26 euros a pop. What came was a huge pot of liquid with a few pieces of meat floating in it, and some forlorn vegetables. The fried potatoes that came... More

Plachutta was recommended by a few friends and we weren't disappointed. Tafelspitz was delicious and full of flavour, the ribs were unforgettable. Staff were so friendly and accommodating for our 10 month old making us feel welcome. A lovely dinner that we will return for one day.
