“Giant wiener schnitzel!!”
Reviewed September 8, 2012

This restaurant was the only place in Vienna that had a line out the door every single night. There are 2 of them now, within a couple minutes walk from each other, and both were packed. They are known for their enormous wiener schnitzels. My wife and I split one and also had a salad with bacon wrapped goat cheese. Both were outstanding!

The atmosphere was wonderful as it had a packed feel with a lot of people enjoying their food and drink. We had a table on the lower floor and it felt almost like a cozy tavern. The local wines are excellent and a perfect match for the delicious food.

It is a must stop for anyone staying in Vienna, just be prepared to wait a few minutes to get a table.

“Is the wait to get in really worth it??”
Reviewed August 28, 2012

We ate at the Figlmuller following a recommendation that it served the greatest Schnitzl in Vienna.
After waiting for about twenty minutes we were given a table and waited another twenty minutes to order. The place was packed, and very hot since it has no air conditioning. We ordered the Schnitzel which turned out to be pork not veal and they arrived in due time, say after a further twenty minutes. The schnitzels look like dinner plates, are very thin and have got to be mass produced! However they were good and the potato salad we ordered with them was also very good. We also ordered salad, and realised that this also contained potato salad so we really had too much. The meal, including one small and one large beer came to 47 euros. I don't think we will bother going back. The food however was enjoyable, although the restaurant is a tourist trap, worth visiting once for the schnitzel but that's about it.

“You can make a better schnitzel at home”
Reviewed August 13, 2012 via mobile

Do not wait for an hour in line to enter. you will save yourself a disappointment. Rude service. Packed place with no aircondition you sit in a hot basement. Average schnitzel. This restaurant is a tourist trap. Nothing to write home about except: "buy a schnitzel meat. I will make a better one when I come home".

“The Schnitzel Experience”
Reviewed July 30, 2012

We reserved online - came to the restaurant, were warmly welcomed and showed our table. If you are coming here and want to avoid a wait, this is the way to do it. We ordered the schnitzel, like almost everyone else in the restaurant, with a potato salad and a mixed salad. The schnitzel was good, but really, the salads stood out in our memory. Lots of tourists come here, but you should try this place anyway - this is one of the better schnitzels around, and don't forget to try the potato salad.
