Description: The tradition-steeped "Mayer am Pfarrplatz" winery, the epitome of Viennese Heuriger culture, has been producing the best Viennese wines since 1683 in Heiligenstadt. In 1817, Ludwig van Beethoven lived in the romantic listed suburban home on Pfarrplatz. During his time in Heiligenstadt he worked on his greatest creation: Symphony No. 9. Homemade spreads and sweet dishes, plus traditional Heuriger cuisine handed down through generations, coupled with new seasonal culinary delicacies, such as Mayer’s asparagus cordon bleu or onion roast made with organic beef, delight our guests and have also earned our "Mayer am Pfarrplatz" Heuriger AMA gastro accreditation. The cosy premises; our sunny terrace under grape vines and walnut trees; and our original Viennese Heuriger music (every day from 7pm) make the "Mayer am Pfarrplatz" a truly unique experience. We have our own children's play area for our younger guests. Our snugs are ideal for celebrations with between 10 and 450 guests. We are very happy to give you an tailored quote, whether you want to celebrate a graduation, wedding or birthday.

“Nice and too expensive”
Reviewed October 13, 2013

Located in one of the many houses the composer Beethoven lived in, the venue is lovely and not far from a bus stop. The food is typical Viennese, fresh and homemade. Wines are from their own winery, of course. Whilst we appreciated that the owner was present, interaction with him was not very pleasant. Overall, far too expensive for what you get, there are much nicer "Heuriger" in Vienna.

“Birthday Dinner”
Reviewed September 27, 2013

We went here for my birthday since I love being in Grinzing. It was alittle too cold to eat outside, but we had a nice cozy meal inside with the accordion player nearby. Two people in our party had the buffet and loved the chicken while i ordered a wonderful wurst plate. We had a great time.

“Look around carefully before you order”
Reviewed September 14, 2013

Unfortunately, although we we were accompanied by a local, we had already selected our food from the Heurigan side of this restaurant - all the food was pre-prepared and sitting in bain-maries. It wasn't very appealing, but it was reasonably priced - however, we didn't realise there was an alternative. We then noticed the board with a proper restaurant menu on the other side of the courtyard - and there we could have ordered the large schnitzels we'd been craving. Very disappointing and make sure you have a good look around before you order!
