A good choice for first-time and returning visitors. Tends to be full in the evening so we recommend making a reservation. Email reservations work. Good food, good service, tips not included in the check.

I expected better. The food was good but the service lackadaisical. The second course the food was served but we had no implements. They "forgot" to bring us the wine ordered. When the food arrived is was very nice - lovely and very satisfying. They could also cope with my requirement for gluten free. Overall good food but a bit... More

I and my best friend went there for dinner on a Friday night and thank goodness I reserved a table 2 weeks in advance because they are popular. I had the tafelspitz (not sure I spelled it correctly), which is their specialty. It was fantastic. Equally good was the beef stroganoff. We had a nice time and the wait staff... More

If the beef is a choice for you... Therefore Plachutta is really a must!!! Excellent food, service but not moderate prices...

Coming to Plachutta for their speciality: tafelspitz. No other place is capable to offer such authentic experience or taste. You can choose extra sides or some variation, but original serving style and combination is unbeatable. Vegetarians are not invited

Went with a large group and the staff was accommodating and the service good. Had the Tafelspitz, it was interesting and while it certainly tasted good, I as did several others in our group had terrible indigestion later. It was a unique experience but not one I'd rush to try again.

You would like to eat some austrian dish that isnt fried like a Schnitzel?

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.
