Good food, but too impersonal

Plachutta is a well oiled machine. The restaurant is massive and during our 6pm dinner on a Saturday evening, nearly every table was taken. Nevertheless, the food was delivered promptly and the large staff deserve credit for efficiency. The tafelspitz was as good as advertised and highly... read more

It is a very popular restaurant of high quality but not very expenive. The boiled beef in broth is delicious and there is different types of meat to choose from. It is very simple.The portion is very big.

Don't miss out this restaurant on your trip to Vienna. If you want to taste the original boiled beef TAFELSPITZ like it was served during Emperor's time then come to Plachutta. Many important guests visited this place including the presidents, Hollywood actors and singers. Very tasty!

After beng seated we were offered a menu with no explanation. We ordered wine and the waiter was obviously to busy to make any conversation as we felled rushed. We were... More

You see, I leave here. That makes a world of difference. Because I mostly go to a restaurant to eat. Plachutta is famous for one dish, and one dish only - Tafelspitz. Basically, a cooked piece of beef served in bouillon that comes with several trimmings. It was made a court dish by Emperor Franz Josef, and since then remained... More

We booked this restaurant especially to try Tafelspitz ...... and it didn't disappoint!! You must try it!! The beef was "melt in the mouth" tenderness - yum!!! Perfect, warming food during a snowy February evening!! Lots of locals were eating there as well, either before or after a show. I have no hesitation recommending this restaurant.

Both Wollzeile and Walfischgase restaurant of Plachutta are very good. We enjoyed the friendly service, the excellent classical Tafelspitz which for us is the best in Vienna. The atmosphere in both places, different in some ways and still the same.

My wife and I were booked into this restaurant by our hotel and although skeptical of a "tourist " experience , it was completely the opposite . Although there were also tourists , clearly many local families also eat there . We had the famous local Tafelspitz and recommend that you try this as it will not dissapoint . The... More

We had just arrived in Wien when I went there with my parents. We didn't know what to expect, but we saw they had the Wiener Schnitzel, so that's pretty much what we went for. When we got there, besides finding a nice ambiance, very cozy and nice, we found out they had this Tafelspitz dish, which is pretty much... More

We come from a country where a beefsoup is a national dish but Plachutta's suppe was something special. The kaiserschmarn was also delicious. It is always good to see that not just turists but also local people visit the place
