Good local taste. Great portions!

First meal in Vienna and definitely was a great start! Portions are huge! My wife and I split the cordon blue schnitzel and sauerkraut and knudel (spelling?) all three were delicious and came out in a very timely manner. Would definitely return

We have eaten many schnitzel for the last 5 years, but this schnitzel was soft, juicy, and crispy. If you want to eat good schnitzel, they say this is one of the good and famous restaurants in Vienna. I believe that is true. We arrived there at 2pm on Saturday, but there were some people waiting. The entrance is small,... More

This is a traditional viennese restaurant where you can taste the original wiener schnitzel for a reasonable price, that's why it's very popular among the locals. There is a wide variety of schnitzel, from the traditional one to the tastier ones, with additional meat and vegetables.

the restaurant is not in the city centre, but is not far neither. The Schnitzel is massive 2 pieces) and cheap, enough for two people. Most dishes are pork based and turkey/chicken, so not suitable for vegeterians. Service was ok, although our waitress didn't know much english, we managed to communicate... This is a better place to eat than the... More

Having lived and visited Vienna many times this was my first experience here. In the city centre yet slightly off the beaten track, there is nothing fancy about this place! What attracts the visitors in droves are the huge portions of tasty 'Schnitzels' at very reasonable prices produced at lighting speed. If you don't have a reservation expect to share... More

Wow what big portions. Fantastic place! When we arrived there was a line, but we didn't wait too long before being seated. The schnitzel was thin, the meat was tender, perfectly breadded, and crispy. I couldn't finish meal and had schnitzel (microwaved) for breakfast and it still tasted amazing!!! The waiters were in a huge rush. Highly recommend!

This place had a nice "off the beaten path" feel. It is in no way commercial and the prices to portion size reflect that. The schnitzel was great and huge. I literally could only finish 2/3 of it.

The food comes in big portions, a wiener schnitzel is enough for two persons. It comes without potatoes or salad. There's not an english menu! Value for money.

We were 4 people, ate schnitzels with gimischte salat. Big size, quick service, good taste. Kitchen is very close to the tables so beware that you may smell like schitzel after all. But good for the sake of trying some local food.

This is the type of place that you shouldn't miss when going to Viena. The food is traditional, honest and comes in big quantities. The Schnitzel and the Kartoffelsalat is the ex-libris from this place and a must-eat. The place was full and noisy, but this is the type of place that you expect to be like that. So go... More

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.
