Traditional restaurant in the city center with authentic cuisine, lovely atmosphere, professional and kind staff. The food was very good, the Wiener Schnitzel was definitely great as it was an unexpected passion fruit sorbet. Definitely recommended!

We loved this restaurant. Our hotel concierge recommended it when we said that we wanted authentic/traditional Austrian cuisine. The decor is so pretty and traditional with the wooden booths and paneling and our food was DELICIOUS. We would highly recommend this restaurant.
