excellent "home cooking"

An unprepossessing frontage on a street corner hides a really nice restaurant. Not many tables, the menu is hand written in German but the waitress helps you through with faltering English.

An unprepossessing frontage on a street corner hides a really nice restaurant. Not many tables, the menu is hand written in German but the waitress helps you through with faltering English. Simple homely fare but everything was cooked to order and an example of the traditional restaurants Vienna is renowned for. Reasonably priced, two of us had two courses and... More

A rather small local restaurant, friendly service and a very good dinner. We tried to get table for a second dinner but it was all booked up so try to get reservation in time.

The service was fantastic -- my server quickly seated me and patiently translated the all-German menu to me, and answered all of my questions. I had a great red wine with the dinner, and everything was perfect! An appetizer of octopus with potatoes and salad, a main course of venison, polenta with garlic, and vegetables, and nougat dumplings for dessert.... More

This place certainly does not look like much from the outside but what you find inside is more than enough to compensate that. The dishes simple but delicious, well-prepared, and correspond to the idea I have about authentic Austrian cuisine. The prices for the food and drinks were very reasonable. The food is five-star in its class, but the lovely,... More

We went to Herzog's tonight on a wim because it was close to our hotel and had some very positive reviews. We could not have been more pleasantly surprised. We were a bit nervous walking up to the store front as you could barely see inside and when we did walk in we realized it only sat about 25 people... More

Went to Herzog Wirtshaus based on past Tripadvisor reviews. Walked in and and waited for someone to show us to a table. This is a small restaurant but only half full. A frowning waitress finally showed us to a table, but that was all she showed us. After waiting 10 minutes we asked if we can see a menu. The... More

Having navigated the traditional tourist trap restaurants in Vienna, I decided to go for something a little more ethnic and turned to Tripadvisor for support. Having been impressed by the reviews, I thought I'd give this place a try as it was only 0.5m walk from my hotel. I agree that the place looks a bit basic and uninspiring from... More

This small family restaurant is tucked away in a corner position near the grand Schönbrunn Palace. The food is honest good traditional fare and not at all pretentious. The other diners were all locals and it was full on a Tuesday which is always a good sign. You have to be able to interpret the handwritten cursive script menu but... More

This restaurant was located between the Schonnbrun Palace and our hotel , close to the Metro Station . It had been recommended by the owner of our hotel who told us that it was quite appreciated by the locals ! HE WAS RIGHT ! We were the only non German-speaking customers in the place and it was full by 18.30... More

Accidentally found this wonderful restaurant looking for an early dinner before a concert at Schoenbrunn. We had just about given up searching this area for anything open when we spied lights on in the Wirsthaus, a small restaurant serving traditional Austrian food in a traditional setting. The menu was written in that complex German script and we needed a translation... More
