We ate lunch here on a day trip from Vienna. We arrived promptly as it opened at 12 and good thing - by the time we left it was packed. It was a beautiful fall afternoon for sitting in the lovely garden among the grapes. Service was friendly and fast. Our waiter spoke English and was very kind. My husband had spareribs and I had paprika hendl (a chicken goulash). Kids had spaetzle with some of the goulash sauce and gobbled it up. Wine and sturm were excellent. Prices were also reasonable and portions enormous. We will definitely return!

This was the only restaurant that my husband and I found in all of our trip to Austria where you really couldn't cheat by speaking English. The menu was entirely in German and our waiter only spoke German. If you want a true travel adventure, this is a good place to come. We did end up enjoying our meals very much, even though we weren't entirely sure what we had initially ordered. There were just two downsides of eating here: there is a lot of smoke from all of the locals smoking, and there were a lot of mosquitoes that evening. Apart from that, it was a very good experience, and it really felt like we were getting to know a real place that Austrians frequent. The view of the vineyards and the accompanying evening mist made the experience quite atmospheric.

We only enjoyed fine local wine tasting here but the setting was delightful with their arched brick ceilings.
Wines were superb. The terraced picturesque vineyards are nearby. Centrally located for a short walk to all Durnstein has to offer. Walk to the old church/Monastery, then the castle with walled city remains, enjoy the views over the Danube then try this place

Garden with view on Danube river gives this place "one star more". Staff is friendly and fast enough, recommended local wine tasted very well, food was on average.
But sitting in the warm evening outside in the garden restaurant, watching the boats and cruises on the river, the Wachau valley in the comming night - that was an excellet experience. Must come back.

Practically at the end of this picturesque village and thru a very inconspicuous door you find yourself in front of an unexpected view and quietness - almost another world. The quality of the fixtures and decoration is high standard, both inside and out, without sacrificing authenticity. Fortunately or unfortunately, the service is also authentic. The quality of the food is quite satisfactory and value for money ok.
