I would recommend any visitor to Vienna who has seen the Central Cemetary (Zentrafriedhof) to pass by this place on their way back to the city centre. You get typically Austrian food in a typically Viennese atmosphere. Best of all, you will not starve ;-)

Had an original (veal) Wiener schnitzel and a potato salad for under 14 euros. You can have pork version for under 9 euros. Good vine and draught beer selection. Quality and quantity of food is comparable to Figlmuller but considerably cheaper. Worth paying a visit.

True, it is not exactly easy to reach and mostly locals know about the place, but if you are in Vienna and if you are visiting the outskirts in the east, e.g. Zentralfriedhof (the biggest cemetery in Europe, with all the celebrities having their final...More
