“Not very friendly”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 18, 2013

I'm sure the food at Zum Friedensrichter is marvellous and that the atmosphere screams GENUINE VIENNA, but sadly we were not to experience any of that. A quick look at our two strollers made the waiter frown and shake his head fiercely, so we were forced to leave the premises without so much as having a look at the menu.

“Cozy little friendly neighborhood restaurant”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 7, 2012 via mobile

If you want real Austrian food at a very reasonable price this is the place.
Without the crowds of the inner city the service is prompt and friendly, the portions huge and good.
We stayed at a hotel near by and we asked the owner and he recommended this place. We were glad we came to dine.

“traditional Vienna kitchen”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2012

"Zum Friedensrichter" is a classical "Vienna Wirtshaus" with traditional Vienna kitchen run by Johann (service) and his son Dieter (service and sometimes also kitchen).
If you are looking for an relaxing traditional local cousine restaurant "Zum Friedensrichter" is for sure a good choice for Monday - Friday as weekend it's closed
It's located in the inner city as you just have to cross a bridge over the Danube channel from the 1st (and inner) district

“Traditional Vienna food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2010

simple but very good value for money. Traditional Vienna food - very good meat - nice atmosphere - friendly service - close to the centre of Vienna - one room reserved for smokers - very good czech beer (draft Budweiser).
Its a perfect place if you want to show people from aboard a typical vienna restaurant
