We went here for pre meal drinks. The food served was very good with generous portions and looked really good. We went for a drink with the family and sat in what was a very pleasant road side table. Early evening it was very quiet. Called back on the way past for a night cap and it was getting more... More

Very nice and warm place, very close to the city center. We really enjoyed our dinner, at a reasonable cost. Recommended! Should I return in Wien (hope so!) I definitely would return at Bettelstudent!

I love coming to Bettelstudent when my friends and I are in town and we're craving some typical Granny cuisine! You're able to find all different kinds of Austrian specialities on the menu, if it's Wiener Schnitzel, Gulyas, Zwiebelrostbraten, Potato Soup, Backhenderl,... they also do Burgers and Ribs! Their home-made fries are delicious!! It's rather cheap considering that it's very... More

Landed there by luck looking for a nice place to watch the euro cup final and have a typical "Wiener"😉 Finally we ended up taking both one Wiener schnitzel and one spare ribs to share. It was really great and tasty food I can only recommend to try.

The restaurant at the same time and a nice pub. The food is very good. Service on a high level. The beautiful and varied selection of beers. The only criticism is the smoke from cigarettes. Poor ventilation. We who do not smoke are not interested to breathe smoke of cigarettes with food.

I was several times in this restaurant - it gives me the spirit of the old Vienna. The place is busy, the staff is very professional, not really friendly - I would rather call them skillful and quick. Their cuisine is really good - and I appreciate that they always have a good vegetarian version - and not only the... More

Been here two nights in a row now. Staff are so friendly and the food was surprisingly really nice. We had the Grostle and the fire ribs both highly recommended, especially the Grostle. Loud music after about 9 pm so beware if you're not into that kinda stuff. Beer is well priced also.

Traditional food served at reasonable prices with decent sized portions. We ate as a family with Austrian friends who's King Charles Spaniel was even brought a bowl of water and dog biscuits. The original Wienerschnitzel with veal (kale in German) is excellent served with a potato salad, although the Wienerschnitzel with pork is also ok. More of a bar serving... More

Good service and good food for a very reasonable price. This place has good American style sandwiches and fries. I recommend if you're looking for a low key American type dinner at a good price

Staying in Inner City

Neighborhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the center. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
