A must try

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... read more

I ate two times at this restaurant and it was amazing. The food is great, the staff is very busy and quick, the atmosphere is nice and friendly. They don't make reservations, you have to be lucky enough to find a place, maybe wait a few minutes outside, but it worths waiting.

We went and it was a typical tourist trap....yes it is cheap or maybe good value for money, but if you want to have a Wiener Schnitzel, then it will be a disappointment. It is made from pork and not from veal. And the rooms are smokey and not nice. Will not go again

Unfortunately we didn't manage to have dinner here as the restaurant was closed. There was no notice on the Internet but when we arrived we found out they were closed. Owner, please don't forget to mention that on TA and clients,please, check it out before going there!

Wanting that Wiener Schnitzel pretty badly one evening I checked Tripadvisor reviews to find a restaurant serving this Viennese delicacy somewhere in the 7th district, close to where I was staying. I was by myself and walking in without reservation I was seated right away at a community table, which was pleasant and nice. Overall though I was somewhat disappointed... More

We came in the early afternoon here after arriving to Vienna. The place was crowded, but we found a table for 4 at the very end of this pub. We should have paid more attention to the other guests and their plates, but we did not. We all ordered the Wiener Schnitzel with fries on the side. A few minutes... More

We ordered one portion of schnitzel as it is very big and it is enough for two persons and one portion of fried potatoes. The restaurant is big and you can easily find a table. It is near Museumsquartier and it is only 12 minutes on foot by Volkstheater metro station.

A group of us came here for dinner based on the recommendation from our hotel. The place was packed with people and there were two small groups ahead of us. Still, it only took about 10 minutes for us to be seated. None of their menus are in any language but German. Ninety-nine percent of the options are schnitzel one... More

If you have any problem with big portions, you must visit Schnitzelwirt with your partner. A schnitzel and potato salat is legendary. If you drink a big beer, it will be perfect. :) The high speed service is very good, the waitress friendly, and the meal is fine. Wiener Schnitzel € 6,80 + Kartoffelsalat € 3,00 Krügerl 0,5 l €...
