very good schnitzel but too expensive

Very well known place to eat schnitzel in the city center of Vienna. Not too many locals go here, because of the upscale prices but the schnitzel are good and big. Potatosalad is of course homemade and very good if you like the typical Viennese preparation with loads of sugar and mustard. For me... read more

The very good Figlmueller Wollzeile restaurant in Vienna is a great reflection of the high quality food available in the city. It is good quality Austrian food but at a reasonable cost, plus good Austrian wines. The service is efficient and friendly. It is generally essential to book in advance to ensure eating here. So well worth the effort!

This little gem is tucked away in the most charming corridor behind St Stephen. The schnitzel is so thinly cut and takes up the whole plate! Don't skip the salad plate - it comes with an assortment of lettuce, potato salad, pickled veggies - and I loved everything on it! Absolutely recommend the Riesling, it was a perfect dry white....

We had our first evening meal in Vienna at Figlmuller, to which some Viennese friends brought us to try a classic Schnitzel. We were 5 and almost all had a different type of Schnitzel as they offer it in a range of different meats, marinade, etc, which I found nice and interesting. Mine was the tasty and tender Surschnitzel. Despite... More

Let's get one thing straight first: the flagship dish at Figlmueller's is the Figlmueller-Schintzel, which is NOT a Wienerschnitzel. The difference: pork vs. veal, veggie oil vs. lard (clarified butter). This is not a secret, and Figlmueller's explains this clearly. You will not find a Wienerschnitzel at the Wollzeile location (where we dined), but I see that both varieties are... More

This is very stereotypical Austrian and doesn't disappoint. The waiters are dressed in black suits and a little humorless but efficient. I asked for a beer, big mistake, "This is a Weinhaus!!" the waiter told me indignantly. Anyway, there was a good atmosphere and the place was absolutely packed so they must be doing something right. The food was good... More

The original Wiener Schnitzel! It had to be done and we weren't disappointed. Service is quick and friendly and who could complain about the portion sizes?! Huge schnitzel and the potato salad is a highly recommended size. I could have just eaten a huge bowl of that. No beer served, just wine. A glass of local red does go great... More

The schnitzel is decent but the potato salad is out of this world. Highly recommend the potato salad.

Staying in Old University Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
Old University Quarter
North of St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Vienna suddenly turns small, winding and medieval, opening up to legendary places such as the Basilisk sculpture at Schönlaterngasse, as well as glamorous baroque façades, courtyards and churches. Take 45 minutes for a casual stroll through Bäckerstrasse, Sonnenfelsgasse, Köllnerhofgasse, Grashofgasse, and Schönlaterngasse. This quarter is packed with stories and legends that will enrich your Vienna experience.
