I've visited recently during a business trip to Vienna as my business partner decided to treat me to a traditional Austrian meal. Having been to Germany a lot, I am no stranger to Tafelspitz (and wouldn't normally be one to order it), but this has been a really good experience. Of course the restaurant is set out to cater for... More

I was taken here by some locals to try a very traditional dish - tafelspitz. This place was very busy but the service was excellent. The meat is brought out int he boiling pot and you have the boiling water and vegies as soup before eating the steak that is boiling still. The steak just broke away from itself and... More

I'm guessing this was the original Plachutta (they have 4 of them around Vienna) and it's pretty much what you would expect - it's busy, the waiters seem to have been around forever and there's the obligatory wall full of photos of celebrities who have visited (there's tons!). The food was good, service a bit lax and atmosphere was busy... More

Boiled beef doesn't sounds like a local specialty worth seeking out but eating it at Plachutta, a restaurant known for the dish, is totally worth it. The ceremony of serving the beef at the table from the copper pot is charming and it's a delicious dish with tasty sides. Recommended.

The food was spectacular and the service top notch, there are just too many smokers marring my evening to totally enjoy. If you can handle smokers then try this as it is fair priced

Definitely come to this restaurant when we are in Vienna. All very tasty, although the restaurant is a little touristic.We always take different kinds Tafelspits or tradition Vienna dishes. Impressions are usually excellent. Can recommend to all tourists in Vienna as a mandatory place to visit. Night reservation is required, a lot of people. Restaurants in network are slightly different... More

We had a business dinner in the restaurant. We order their special Tafelspitz dish which was really great and tasteful. I fully recommend this for a traveler to Vienna.

The famous "Tafelspitz" in the best way possible! Yes, the service is a bit cold - but the food covers for it :)

We tried this place on the recommendation of an Austrian friend. It was fun and interesting, but once is enough, I would say. My husband had the tafelspitz (boiled beef in broth with condiments) and I had the wienerschnitzel. The service was fun and attentive. We were glad we went, but not blown away by the food. How good can... More

A must try when in Vienna. The restaurant manages to maintain good quality food, freindly srvice. Tafelspitz was delicious as well as the veak tongue and bone marrow. All very yummy. The meal was complimented with lovely flavored soup. Waiter recommended a good Austrian red wine to go with the dinner. Great expereince and value for money. Make a reservation!
