I first came here with some Viennese friends. The restaurant looks extremely eclectic on the inside, but feels extremely comfortable and welcoming. The social groups inside were also very interesting: there were groups of senior citizens, of students, of families.

No wonder - for Vienna, this place is a great deal. 10-15€ gets you a large portion of food, including sides. (This might have been the best sauerkraut I have ever had.) There is delicious Bohemian beer and a schnapps menu. One friend waxed poetic about a daily special he had one afternoon, but has not seen on the menu since.

Why this gets four points instead of five: it is off the beaten path and can be hard to find, sometimes the handwritten menus can be hard to read, and sometimes it can be hard to get a table.

I liked the simplicity of this place. Don't expect anything fancy-- that's the beauty of it. Food was very good; seemed done in a homey style. Prices absolutely affordable for wien. Staff is nice and takes care of you. I took the mixed dumplings and was very happy. The location is not central but a 10 mn walk from prat. station.

We get a recommendation from out host and have not been disappointed. Funny decorations on the walls, hand-written menus, diverse food (I recommend ravioli). In the evening reservations are desirable, the place is full of locals.

There are no words to describe... When we came to the restaurant it was all full, also the terrace.
Some could say the decoration is cosy, but i'd describe it artsy and boheme. Abundance is the word for stuff on the walls, floor, tables... The walls are covered with paintings by the owner, and everything is for sale. The atmosphere was welcoming and relaxed.

Food is mainly russian / austrian. The price range is around 10-30 euros for plate. Wine list is satisfying and full of even experimental choices.

Best part is the staff. The cook is fast as lightning (seriously, you cant see him going around), and the waiters are friendly. With our waitress we ended up comparing our ancient russian roots if we happened to have anything in common.

Food was delicious, and the size of the portion almost too big! Definetely will go there again!

I went to this restaurant because of the reviews here, but we were disappointed. The service was not good and the food was mediocre at best. The Schnitzeled food I had was thick and deep fried. Almost American. The atmosphere was fun, but I wouldn't recommend it.
