Just arrived to Vienna and looked for dinner. We arrived to this restaurant and found it so good. Great potato soup, but wasn't so hot. Very good schnitzel, we ordered the chicken one. Will recommend to order the cardon blue or the pork schnitzel. Will be back Great service.

We came here on a recommendation and we are so glad we did. It made all the other schnitzel we have ever eaten pale in comparison! The meat was tender, not at all dry and fried to perfection, served with a wonderful salad with potatoes, it was all seriously delicious! Our server Oliver was fun and accommodating, between his great... More

There are a lot of reviews about this famous restaurant, so I provide just a piece of advice. Usually there are long quest in front of the door. If you want to have a dinner there and avoid the queue, try to think about an early dinner and step inside without queue before 6 pm. Good luck!

The schnitzels are huge and very tasty. I had one at another place and it certainly wasn't as good as that at Figlmueller. The downside is the wait time (30-40 min) and the queue but should be fine if you book in advance.

Visited this establishment based on several local and tour guide recommendations. Well worth the wait and the visit. Went to number six location and had a went yesterday minute wait with no reservations. Had local beer, traditional salad and oil with new potatoes and the Weinerschnitzel. Wonderful food, service and environment. Friendly staff and patrons. Would definitely return when in... More

Schnitzel and wine? What alse you need in Wien? Quickly served, always excellent Wiener Schnitzel with good house wine. Some order potato salad with the Schnitzel, I am always fine with just the huge Schnitzel. Only hard to get a seat, too much on demand despite of having a branch nearby. Both often full. Booking highly recommended.

We went to Figlmuller as we wanted to try local cuisine. The pork medallion with noodles was excellent! The pork was so tender that it melts in your mouth. Their schnitzel is humongous as it occupied almost the entire plate! My friend ordered liver and she loved it too. The waiter was so friendly and honest to tell us which... More

This is a must! Better reserve. Very casual and friendly atmosphere in this busy restaurant which is always full. It has been serving its original Schnitzel receipe for 110 years! And only pork meat (no veal but a compromise with chicken is proposed). The mixed salad is top as a starter. (The potatoe salad is just outstanding). But forget about... More

Von den 13 Gerichten auf der Karte wird aber meistens nur eins geordert.
