Great food, average service

Came here after a recommendation. Wanted to try a traditional Vienna schnitzel and this place was apparently the best in town. Food was pretty good... But the service was rather average. Although the night was Very busy so perhaps that's why we didn't get as much attention as we would've... read more

Went with friends who are long-time Vienna residents and understood why this is one of there favorite restaurants. Broad selection of boiled beef entrees. We shared the equivalent of rump roast -- it was excellent. Deserves a visit if only to experience this method of preparing beef -- boiled and presented in a pot with vegetables and broth. Try the...

Having read good reviews we checked this place out. Large outside terrace( mostly smokers) large inside restaurant, starched white table cloths, well dressed waiters, checked menu- traditional Viennese food - worth a try. We were encouraged to try the traditional boiled beef, served as a broth in smaller copper pot and meat and vegetables in large copper pot. Looked impressive,... More

It is a bit of an expense, but sitting out doors is beautiful, assuming you can be near a no smoker! The wood was nice, but being the first time there the waiter really did not explain the different options and we had to ask what it was all about.

We where in Vienna for just a few days, by default I picked my own restaurant, called Griechenbeisl, I saw it advertised in a travel magazine. What a disaster bad service,terrible food,over priced. Never again. By contrast we asked our concierge at the Sacher Hotel for a typical Vienese restaurant with atmosphere, his recommendation a restaurant named Plachutta at Wollzeile.... More

We visited twice with friends. We ate once the "best seller" tafelspitz. Was very good. Also the schnitzel was good. Staff is very friendly and helpful.

It's hard to believe that I never reviewed Plachutta, I've dined here on every trip to Vienna since 2003 or 4, to me this restaurant represents traditional Viennese dining and service. The food is exceptional, granted I always get the Tafelspitz, spinach, and potatoes with a beer. on my last visit there was not a seat available, the manager found... More

Very busy but great traditional Viennese food. The schnitzel and potatoes were awesome and the service impeccable. Nice wines. Only criticism was that we had to eat outside with the smokers

When visiting Vienna, wich I do regularly, I never miss this splendid location, a temple of Vienna traditional Cuisine. So I did yesterday coming from Zurich with friends, once again meeting perfect service drinking a Zieregg Sauvignon Blanc from the Steiermark and, obvious, having the Wiener Schnitzel 😃 All in all best.

A traditional Viennese (or Austrian, as you like it) restaurant in the heart of Vienna. In fact, there are three Plachutta restaurants in Vienna. I visited the place a couple of days ago with mu bussines felows and had a good time there. The service is very good, though waiters are a bit of very conservative behaviour, however this is...

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.
