This place was busy, but people were willing to squeeze together and share tables. The portions are huge - we should have shared a schnitzel. The food is good and the energy made it fun.

We had so much fun. wood is simple, dishes are huge, we ordered one for the while family. We got such a nice welcome, when they let my daughter go into the kitchen, and watch how it's done. loved it.

Schnitzel was so large and taste was not bad but, the service was terrible. They regarded us as a nuisance. Was so noisy place. I wont go there again. ps. Maybe u have to wait because of a long line.

I first ate hear 11 years ago. I couldn't believe the huge portions and tasty Schnitzel. Last year, while in Vienna, I went there again, on purpose. The place was unchanged. This time I only ordered 1/2 a portion since last time I struggled with the full one. Only the price is different - quite understandable after 10 years! It... More

The schnitzel is acceptable but service is not. I really hate like this behavior which is 'we don't need no more customers'. Go for different alternative...

Yes, it is indeed hot and smoky inside, but that is part of the experience!! I lived in Wien in the 5th for the past year and we would mosey over to Schnitzelwirt whenever we had a craving for some gigantic Schnitzel and tasty Krautsalat!! You are often seated with other people, it's normal, just be social. It's actually quite... More

Visited this place according the reviews on TA to try an authentical schnitzel in Vienna. So, it was a very big mistake .... the "restaurant" - I would say a regular cantine is hot, with a half-open kitchen, so the smell of baked meat is hanging all around. It is not cosy at all, the tables are big for 5... More

While not the prettiest, nicest or most chic restaurant in Vienna, this place has some of the best schnitzel in town without all the tourist overkill and price of Figlemuller or Plachuta. The schnitzel is hardy, gamey and bursting with flavor and even the accompanying traditional potato salad is substantial and delicious. These guys get everything right from the ratty... More
