Very good Wiener Schnitzel, but took long to have the bill...!

I had a quick dinner in this place that was recommended by a local colleague to try the Schnitzel and I must say the meat and the asparagus soup I had were delicious. Unfortunately, while the food came quite fast (this tends to happen when you are dining alone as I was), it took ages to get the... read more

Went for dinner on a Friday night. It was busy but not hectic. Service was okay, but we had to ask for everything without it being offered. Food was nothing special. Other friends ate there the same night and had to complain about the rudeness of their server. Felt like I was in a tourist trap. Would not go back.

We arrived with a group of friends on a sunny day and wanted to sit outside. At some point, we requested if the installed blinder could be used to protect us from the sun. We asked once and it was denied, the second time it was also denied so we move inside. Interestingly enough there were other guests who were... More

we were looking forward to eating at this famous property. But our lunch become the worst experience from Vienna and maybe one of worst ever. The food is ok, but what ruins all experience is the staff. Starting with manager goes to last waiter. Not surprised to find similar comments here. If I would read them earlier, I would not... More

I have been to many restaurants and it is very reasonable to have different views about the food. But this review is about the staff, starting from the manager to the last waiter/waitress. They were so rude and generally unprofessional that in the end we were laughing thinking that it is all a big joke Reserving a table for 10... More

It is the best place for tafelspitz eating! This traditional dish is so tasty and the service is also part of the experience!

This is a busy and popular restaurant - reservations recommended if you are in a party. They serve traditional Viennese dishes, with boiled beef being their speciality. This didn't sound particularly appetizing, but it is done in the traditional way, and there is an enormous assortment of different cuts available. Service was efficient but not very friendly.

Opinión en inglés: Just had dinner at Plachutta... a terrible experience! Food was OK, but waiters very rude, and they actually cheated on us! They charged us 6 Euros for bread we did not order. We were charged 9 euros for vegetables we did not order. They offered water to accompany the wine, and it turned out it was bottled... More

Restaurant based on one of Vienna's traditional dishes - tafelspitz. Basically it is boiled beef of various cuts accompanied by boiled potatoes, creamed spinach and a bunch of condiments including fresh horseradish. Service is typically Viennese with all the politeness upfront and the bit of scorn in the back. If you are going to visit Vienna you should probably try... More

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.
