Plachutta is known for their famous Tafelspitz. It is a nice restaurant in the centre or Vienna. We went there for a dinner and reserved our table in advance. After being seated we got butter but had to wait for bread for 10 minutes. We were asked about drinks and got soft drinks but no aperitif. I tried to inform... More

Stopped at Plachutta just after we landed in Vienna. The food was great, the staff were very well mannered, smart and helpful. When in Rome you should visit the Vatican, when in Vienna, you must visit Plachutta!!

Simply, the best boiled beef on the planet. Don't miss this place, pure Vienna. The creamed spinach is also great. Top it all off with Mohr I'm Hemd.

In mid-May, we had the good fortune to be able to dine at two of the three Plachutta locations in Vienna – Wollzeile and Hietzing. The Wollzeile location is in the heart of Vienna and is very elegant and we enjoyed classic Viennese cuisine. The Hietzing restaurant is close to Schonbrunn Palace, and, after some hours of touring Schonbrunn, we... More

If you want experience traditional Austrian cuisine, Plachutta is the place to go. Location is very central, close by train station Wien Mitte and next to U-Bahn station Stubentor. I had high expectations because I have sent hotel guests there based on concierges recommendation (I work as receptionist in one of the best hotels in the city) and receiving good... More

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
