Seemed difficult to find. The food was ready in only a couple minutes. I had ham with scalloped potatoes. The potatoes were good. The ham seemed just so so.

After reading some reviews here on TA, we were really hyped to visit this place. It didn't only live up to the expectations, it crushed them. The owner himself took a great care of us and we had a good chat with him. We ended...up ordering their signature dish, which is roasted pork with sauerkraut and Semmelknödels. It was absolutely delicious. We even came back later that day to grab two more meals for dinner. It was that good! Overall we loved the concept, style, execution and energy of this place and we consider it the best food-experience we came across in Vienna.More

Cosy little restaurant serving excellent hearty meals for a great price. The menu is small, but there’s a good selection to choose from. On the recommendation of the staff I chose their signature dish; which was super tasty and massive! Even though I really enjoyed...it, there was no way I was going to able to finish it!More

Nice little restaurant in the heart of Vienna which serves freshly interpreted, typical Austrian food. Their speciality is the "Schweinsbraten" - pork roast - which is served, like all dishes, in a paper box, which is normally known from Asian take-aways. The restaurant staff is...very friendly and since the kitchen is open, it's easy to start a conversation, about food, Vienna or beer - btw they also serve nice Austrian beer, a perfect match for the rather heavy food! Definately a great spot if you're on a sightseeing or shopping trip in the city center or work in the area!More

We had a warm welcome as soon as we entered. The guy bought us the menu and was so helpful in helping us choose. We had the signature pork dish and also the casserole. They were both absolutely delicious and very good portions too, I...had a struggle to finish it. Prices were very reasonable especially considering portion size and the quality of the food. Everything is prepared in an open kitchen in front of you. Food was fresh and the service very fast. Would definitely recommend. Great little place 👌🏼More
