Crowded but worth while.

The number of clients confirms the quality of the restaurant. Cozy environment, good food and variety of beers. Reservations are very welcome, since the restaurant is always crowded. This is also the reason why the service is not the best, but it doesn't reduce the quality. I recommend the... read more

I'm a fan of Schnitzel, orecchie d'elefante, scaloppine Milanesi, etc. Any breaded meat, I'm game. So of course I've eaten as many I could in as many places I could, and this is one of the best I've ever had. I don't get the critics who said that this or that place is better - there never is any universal... More

The number of clients confirms the quality of the restaurant. Cozy environment, good food and variety of beers. Reservations are very welcome, since the restaurant is always crowded. This is also the reason why the service is not the best, but it doesn't reduce the quality. I recommend the schnitzel, the most famous dish.

We had a lunch reservation but had to wait while locals were being seated. We were finally seated in a small crowded noisy area with other tourists who were given the opportunity to experience the famous schnitzel. Service was rushed. They don’t serve veal schnitzel and one is supposed to believe that pork schnitzel is better. A part of the... More

I just got back from dinner at Figlmuller and I am so furious this is the first thing I am doing.

Meals are normal, prices are fair, the waiters are fascist. The waiter who deal us was not polite, in fact he was very rude. They are trying to guess nationality of the guests and bhaves according to your nationality. He didn't say hello or goodbye altough we left tips more than their usuals. Not recomend.

This is a popular place frequented mostly by tourists but they do serve really good schnitzels. Queues can be long sometimes but the staff are pretty efficient and waiting time is acceptable.

It was the best schnitzel I've ever eaten in my life. We didn't have a reservation but we were a big group even though we only waited for 10 min. But we waited more than 30 minutes and we were in a hurry so we had to take our schnitzels with us and couldn't enjoy them well. But still it... More

Absolute tourist trap! The famous schnitzel was dry and disgustingly huge. You are definitely paying for quantity and not quality there. Very disappointing experience.

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.
