“great atmosphere & good austrian food”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2012

This restaurant is in a cellar that is hunfreds of years old. It is such a great find & has some really good authentic austrian food. This was also some of the friendliest service we've had in Vienna. Try the Wiener Saftgulash & the scnitzel.

“bad place for eating”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed December 23, 2012

The Restaurant is not far from Schwedenplaz in a side street off Rothenturm Strasse ,
It is in a Cellar which Keller means. You walk down the stairs and get into a crude Basement which might have been like this as long as it exists cold and nothing cozy.
There are mostly large tables there like it usually is in Beer Cellars.I was there during the early afternoon and the place was full with different tour groups all eating Schnitzels. If you come alone or as a couple you feel out of place, have to wait a long time before they notice you. This is for sure not the place to go if in Vienna, the Goulasch I ate was the worst I have eaten anywhere. 3 pieces of meat, 3 halve potatoes in a thick sauce which made a "film" on top if you did not move it, only lukewarm and cost 9 Euro. The worst meal in the last 3 times I was in Vienna.

“Tourist trap!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 20, 2012

Rude waiters. Unsolicited violin playing duo that expects 10 euros for the serenade...
Food is average.... Certainly a tourist trap. To avoid if you can

“Nice place terrible food.”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed December 11, 2012 via mobile

It's good as a place, down in the cellar but the food was terrible and cold. The stuff was rude as almost all the Viennese people who work with tourists.
