A place for tourists with usually well prepared food

If you are a tourist go there. You will get the traditional Tafelspitz and other cooked pieces of beef there with good taste and good upscale service. Still be aware that this place is very expcensive in comparison to places located a bit more outside and they serve hunderds if not thousands of... read more

After the visit to Schonbrunn castle, I was curious about the “boiled meat” that was the favorite from the Emperor. We were just looking for a place to eat and found this one. It was Sunday lunch and it was really crowded. As we were a party of two, they just put us on the side of a bigger table,... More

This fine Viennese restaurant has the unique service of serving up the plate at tableside right from the cooking pots which are then placed on your table on a warming plate for you to refill your plate from. The food is excellent, service right on the spot, and the potatoes are particularly good. No question, I would go back.

Extremely busy and atmospheric, great service and really good food. Can be a bit cramped when busy, but this place thrives on bustle and atmosphere

Very nice restaurant in downtown Vienna. It was the best wiener schnitzel I had in the city so far. Staff was very efficient and polite. It's recommended to make a reservation, otherwise you might have to wait some time. Price is relatively high compared to other option in the region, but the quality goes together.

The place was clean, smart, modern, run with great efficiency and was soon packed out. The menu was small but precise. The food delivered by experienced waiters and tasted delightful. A must to go and try the local food but if you are on a longer stay it would be best if you booked in advance. We were lucky and... More

My relatives who are Viennese locals took me here so I can experience authentic wien cuisine. I had schulterscherzel cut of beef as my tefelspitz. What I didn't realise is the highly ritualized manner of eating this dish. At first, the waiter pours the broth with vegetables in your bowl, after which you are free to pour yourself as many...

This restaurant serves an amazing meal that the King loved. Tafelspitz which is beef broth and they cook it at your table, has meat, vegetables and other goodies. It was delicious and a wonderful experience

I dined at Plachutta for a business dinner in January 2016. It was, truly, one of the most incredible meals I've ever had in a restaurant. I selected a Riesling for wine and ordered the filet for my meal - it was absolutely delicious and cooked to perfection. The sides it came with were also fabulous. The restaurant wasn't terribly...

This is a traditional Austrian restaurant very close to the state opera house. I am a coeliac and was very well looked after by this restaurant. My food was absolutely beautiful with attentive friendly staff. I would certainly return as this is a beautiful restaurant.

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.
