Great friendly spot for a pub style dinner. The goulash was excellent, good local Austrian fare in lively surrounds. Particularly good for those looking for a non smoking venue, no smoking inside (unlike many other pubs in Austria).

If you want to go for after-work beer(s), Pumpe is definitely worth a visit! A "gulasch and a beer" is a must have, but they also have great other local food choices.

The food is great and the prices are ok. The downside is that there is no wifi and the waiters do not speak English.

No need to stand on decorum. This restaurant serves traditional Austrian fare in a traditional Austrian setting. The food is the best!! It looks like a beerhall, and its packed with locals!! Service is good and very friendly. Definitely will return here.

The atmosphere from this authentic Austrian Gasthaus is fantastic, food-especially the "Gulasch" is world class. Service is super fast and very friendly! Location is very central, great for a sightseeing break.

Went to this restaurant and have eaten great goulash! The restaurant is a place where the locals like to eat there goulash, schnitzel, würstel or any of the other great Austrian dishes. We love the authentic atmosphere in the restaurant. We visit Klagenfurt every year and a visit to Pumpe is a must!

Whilst travelling from Venice to Klagenfurt 'by bus' this restaurant was recommended by an Austrian couple very familiar with the area. It's rough and ready in the traditional sense; an extremely warm welcome awaited us however, no airs or graces, excellent food, good banter and extremely good value. Whilst paying the bill the waitress refused to take a tip from... More
