Very Tastey Huge Portions

This is a place that locals fill up on schnitzel, so you know it is good. It was very, very busy, but the food came up quickly. The servings are huge so you should share as one person could not eat all that meat.

We were in 6 adults and luckily the waiter found a table just for us. Although we didn't have to share the table, we saw a logo of people doing it. There are separated rooms for smokers and non smokers. Since we were told to try the famous schnitzel, we saw photos in TA that the size of the dishes... More

My favourite place in Vienna! Their selection and quality of schnitzel is fantastic! Prices are moderate compared to the size of portions (usually one portions is enought for 2 people!). Best potato salad I ever had and the also the best Cordon Bleu (schnitzel filled with ham and cheese). Don't get me wrong: this is not a fancy place where... More

If you're walking down Maria Hilfer Strasse that's a great place to fuel up. Turn to Neubaugasse and walk approx. 400 m down that street. The interior is decorated in a more of a traditional bistro style and looks rather tight - there could be more space between the tables. In the middle of a day the restaurant is just... More

We ate here twice. The portions are huge...no way one person could finish one portion of their famous schnitzel. We had leftovers that we ate for days (but they warmed up very well at our Airbnb apt). If you go during peak times the wait is out the door. Expect to share tables, and expect your neighbors to smoke. The... More

Typical Austrian food and beverages in a very nice place, the famous "Wiener Schnitzel" is huge, delicious and cheap. I totally recommend it!

Really nice and cozy place in Neubaugasse. The staff is really nice and they even try to speak english. On the menu there are several choices of wiener schnitzel and other typical dishes. I got the cheaper wiener schnitzel, made of pork meat for only 7 euros and it was huge. The Kartoffelsalad could not be missed: only 3 euros... More

5-star for whose looking for the locals hang around. Standard schnitzel is good enough. Smoking allowed. Price/performance is excellent.

This place is amazing. Character filled restaurant and best schnitzel and beer. For 7 euro you get 2 or 3 pieces of schnitzel, enough for 2 people. Side orders of salad and sauerkraut are just as big and also very inexpensive. Highly recommend if you are hungry or on a budget and want to share.

Very good and huge schnitzel! We haven't been eating since morning, come to the restaurant at 5 pm, took 2 soups, split one portion of wiener schnitzel, pommes and salad for 19 € and we still couldn't eat everything :)) Service was good and fast, but only half an hour later the place was very crowded, so it is better...

Staying in Neubau

Neighborhood Profile
Neubau
Vienna’s art district, Neubau buzzes with galleries, arts and crafts, trendy restaurants, avant-garde shops, and cafés. Neubau’s Spittelberg quarter with cobblestoned Spittelberggasse and Gutenberggasse make for a perfect stroll alongside Biedermeier houses and art shops. Don’t miss the historic courtyard at Amerlinghaus with its typical Pawlatschen galleries, a perfect hangout on a warm summer evening. Museumsquartier is Neubau’s undisputed highlight: the former Imperial stables house various top museums of 19th to 21st century art. If you love interiors, head for the Imperial Furniture museum (Hofmobiliendepot), one of the world’s largest furniture collections. Find your favorites among a dazzling array of Baroque, Biedermeier, Art Nouveau and Modernist chairs, sofas, cupboards, coat hangers, foot stools and wash basins. No weekend visit would be complete without stopping by a local café on a weekend morning for brunch.
