We had been looking forward to trying the wienerschnitzel in Vienna and researched carefully to find the best location. We booked on the day and went to the little branch of Figlmueller in the alley and were certainly not disappointed. We ordered Austrian wine and the pork schnitzel with potato salad and roast potatoes. It was all delicious, just as... More

Firstly book a table because this place is so popular. The staff here are so friendly My husband loves Schnitzel and boy was he happy with his large Schnitzel. It was perfectly cooked to perfection. I am not a big eater and ordered the mixed salad. It wasn't your normal run of the mill salad. They were the normal lettuce... More

When I saw all the fuss about Figlmüller, I was really excited about going there. It's been around for a long time, so my intuition said it should be a good place to eat. Well, I was terribly wrong. As soon as I got in the small and crowded restaurant, a rude waiter assigned a table for me and my... More

just 5mins or less from the main station ”stephanplaz”, speedy service, not too expensive. we reserved 2days before our visit and highly recommended to do so because around lunch time,there is always long queue! 観光地にある割にはそこまで高くないが、すごく有名なシュニッツェルのお店。ソースとかないですが、レモン、塩胡椒でなんとかなります。ただお皿飛び出すほど大きいので女性には一皿キツいかもです。サラダも頼みましたが、ドレッシングが甘めでたっぷり入ってました。ウィーンでは料理に何でもコリアンダーみたいな葉っぱがたくさん入ってて私は苦手でした…

We visited this restaurant upon recommendation of friends. We were unable to secure a booking on line so just turned up and had to wait only about 10 mins for a table. Mind you we went early, about 3.30 pm and when we left there was a line up about 8 metres out the door. We were a group of... More

Love the Figlmuller on BackerstraBe. Need a reservation even in off-times. The atmosphere is terrific. Waiters are delightful and welcoming. The Wiener Schnitzel is simply incredible. It is a must have meal with a very nice cold beer.

On the Good Vienna Walking Tour today (highly recommended), our tour guide mentioned that Figlmüller served the best wienerschnitzel in Vienna. We were planning on eating wienerschnitzel in Vienna, so decided to take his advice. One bit of advice I would give is book in advance or get there early. We turned up on Thursday evening at 17:00 and were... More

A must do if you are in Vienna! The original! Utterly charming interior, excellent food choices and wine list may seem limited in choice but quality choices for every palette. Exquisite consommé and very traditional schnitzel.... delightful and good value!

Auf die Speisekarte des Figlmüller Wollzeile gehören auch andere Klassiker der österreichischen Küche wie Wiener Tafelspitz mit Schnittlauchsauce, Apfelkren und Rösterdäpfel oder Kalbsrahmgulasch mit Butternockerln. Von den 13 Gerichten auf der Karte wird aber meistens nur eins geordert. Das Figlmüller Schnitzel ist ausschließlich von der Karreerose, wird auf einen Durchmesser von etwa 30 cm geklopft und in Brösel von der Kaisersemmel paniert.
