I ate here when I lived in Vienna 45 years ago, then I was back 20 years ago, and now again. It is as i remember it to be, small, authentic, with good food and great ambience!

Stumbled across this restaurant one evening and by chance they had a table. Good, simple menu; great food; friendly service. Try the Onion Roast (beef) and Kaiserschmarrn for dessert.
