This is a large but very busy restaurant with reservations required at most times. It's popular with local businesses entertaining clients, and families celebrating special occasions. The main offering is the traditional Viennese Tafelspitz, boiled beef in a broth with accoutrements, but there are other meat and fish dishes, and good desserts and wines. Service is brisk (they want the... More

This is a really top notch restaurant at which you can try a number of classic and authentic Austrian dishes. The Tafelspitz was out of this world, the Austrian wine extremely good. The service in fairness is a little pompous and the insistence on charging you for bread you may have no intention of eating seems a little petty but... More

Wonderful dinner at this central Vienna restaurant. We had the taflespitz which came highly recommended and I can see why. No need for a starter or room for a desert! Waiters were friendly.

Our group were treated to authentic Austrian cuisine at this restaurant popular with the locals. Some of us had the traditional Tafelspitz which was really flavoursome. Other meat and fish dishes were also on the menu equally tasty enjoyed by other members of our group. The wines and beers were also good. The service was very attentive, perhaps too much... More

We had a really good meal here but didn't have the tafelspitz speciality as we weren't too keen on bone marrow . That said, we saw others eating it and it did look good and seemed to go down very well. My Husband had steak which he said was absolutely delicious and I had pike which I have never tried... More

Hubby and I made a reservation at this busy and lively restaurant and arrived early, hoping to get a seat....no luck! However, the wait was worth it. We dined here on the recommendation of our tour guide, who suggested that Tafelspitz is a "must try" when dining in Vienna. We ordered the Tafelspitz for two. It arrived in a copper... More

This is a rather historic restaurant featuring local specialties including boiled meats. The 6 of us all tried something different and none were disappointed. The service was a little slow during the busy lunch hour and it seemed that locals were treated preferentially. But perhaps that's as it should be.

On a cold Austrian night there is nothing more inviting then a warm soup and a well cooked steak. You will get that and more at Plachutta. Great wine, delicious soup and an amazing steak all served with a great attitude and a smile. Can't wait till next time.

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.
