Vienna is an historic vibrant city. The First District is generally located within the ring road around the central area. The Purstner is located within the ring. When entering the restaurant one is immediately struck with the realization that this is an authentic Austrian restaurant. Extensive artifacts from the Austrian countryside grace the walls and ceilings to provide an image... More

I have been lucky enough to visit Vienna several times with work and every time we made a point of eating in Purstner at least once. True, the decor is a bit weird (fake indoor trees?!) but the food is consistently high quality, very generous portion sizes, and always friendly service. My personal favourites are the Schnitzel and the Mastochsenbraten... More

Next door to our apartments..couldn't believe when we saw it was one of the higher ranked restaurants so near. Friendly staff, cosy traditional decor and atmosphere. Shouldn't have had starters the first time.the main courses were huge. Ate here twice..schnitzel (obviously) and then ribs which were fab but felt had eaten half a cow!

We were wanting Austrian food our last night in Vienna and opted for Purstner. While the decor is a bit gimmicky, (beer barrels, waiters in lederhosen) the overall experience was fun. Our waiter was very attentive and helpful when it came to choosing items off the large menu full of Austrian classics. I went for a chicken & spaetzel dish... More

My wife and I ate here twice during ur recent trip to Vienna. On our first visit we were fortunate to get a table as it was busy. Service was still very friendly and helpful given our lack of German and we quickly had two great beers. We only ate main courses on both visits which was fine as the... More

Finishing a river cruise in Vienna, my husband, friends and I had a farewell dinner at Purstner. It was a great restaurant. The food was typical Austrian and there were many choices. Everyone enjoyed the dinner and fantastic desserts. The atmosphere was fun, service good. All of us would return again.

Decided to try Purstner after seeing it on trip advisor. It was well worth the visit. We sat outside as the weather was lovely but inside was really nicely done out. Very quaint. I did notice that most of the tables inside were reserved even though it was mid afternoon. The waiter was very friendly and helpful and they had... More

Me and my boyfriend went to have dinner on this restaurant 2 days ago, it is not our first visit, and we aways have a good time here. The restaurant was quite full around 7:30pm, and we were seated in one of the back rooms, which gave it a more romantic side for our great meal. I ate the Mastochsenbraten,... More

We visited in the summer of 2012 and again this August. Last time I gave it a five. It is a favorite of our friends that live in Vienna. It was a very hot day in Vienna and we were seated a the rear of the restaurant (about where we were seated last time). There was no cooling. There were... More
