Elegant surroundings, attractive table settings. Seating inside in the winter and outside in summer. Wonderful traditional meat dishes. Highly recommended for a "special dinner".

My husband and I had a very pleasant meal here. Excellent food and service. A waiter accidentally spilt soup down my husband's back, staining his trousers which was uncomfortable and embarrassing. The staff were good enough to offer to cover the cleaning bill. Perhaps I expect too much but in England in a restaurant of this expense it would be... More

I would like to return in the future to have another meal there, and I will sit in... More

This place serves fantastic Schnitzel and Tafelspitz,in a great setting. The service was friendly and the English menus were very welcome. The walls are adorned with many famous guests - Pelé, George Lucas and even Vladimir Putin.... Definitely worth a visit for some authentic Viennese food.

We patronised this restaurant on our last night in Vienna after reading TripAdvisor reviews.As a beef lover I have stayed away from the simplistic boiled beef in clear soup which is available in almost all restaurants in Vienna. However, because of the rave reviews of the signature Tafelspitz (boiled beef in clear soup with root vegetables), we ordered this dish.It... More
