“No service, no "hospitality, no idea”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

This "restaurant" has no idea about what it means to be in the hospitality industry. We arrived on time and were shown to the furthest table in a hot little room at the back of the restaurant. We were seated there for 15 minutes and no-one came near us with a menu, an offer of a drink or anything. Five waiters in the room treated us as if we were totally invisible. We walked out and they didn't care. Avoid going there for any reason.

“Can't Say I'm a Huge Fan”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed September 12, 2012

though i've never had to pay. Maybe the choices selected for me were not to my taste. the staff takes great pride in their work and the tradition of a very ancient place.

“The place to enjoy high quality bourgeois Viennese culinary tradition”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2012

This is a restaurant that can trace back its origin to the beginning of the 17th century and they are still a landmark in the Viennese culinary landscape. They offer traditional cuisine with occasional innovative twists. This is a good place to eat Tafelspitz (Schnitzel is not on the menu, but is offered if required), but they have equally delicious alternatives on the menu if you want something less traditional. The interior is still very turn of the century, but pulls it off without being too stuffy. The winelist is amazing and offers the widest range of Austrian wines I have seen anywhere. I felt that prices were a bit too high, although the quality of the dishes and the service was excellent. Their food bar next door looked very tempting and is obviously wildly popular with the locals. This restaurant is always packed, so make sure you reserve in advance.
