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

I was there for dinner by chance. Food and beer ( a lot of) were good but I would like to underline the atmosphere you can breathe there. I had to share the table with other people and I met a group of cheerful friends from Klagenfurt. Moreover our waitress ( the one in the no smoking area) was very... More

Stopped in here for a couple of beers and a light lunch. Although little English was spoken, we had a great time drinking and eating and enjoying the local atmosphere.

It's a traditional restaurant in Klagenfurt, but mostly totally full. Also close the bar and restaurants early, so you can't sit and drink the hole night
