“A joke of a restaurant”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 1, 2012

Supposedly one of the better eateries in Vienna? Forget it. It's utterly terrible. Dreadful food, horrible service. It's like you didn't exist. Maybe that's why there's only 3 tables of diners on Saturday night? All the serious food bloggers have PANNED this place, and I join them. Schrecklich!!!

“service improvable”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 29, 2012

the main part of the restaurant is a very large hall with a lack of cozy "atmosphere", so try and get a table in the rear part, where they have niches sitting 6. When we were there (party of three) it appeared that the restaurant was short of personnel, as we had to cope with some very long waiting times. The dishes were good = **** (try the gigantic "Wiener Schnitzel"), though not very good. Due to poor service I can only give ***

“Best meal in Vienna”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 20, 2012

If you start to weary of typical Austrian cuisine, this place is a revelation. The dishes are imaginative, light and blend flavours in a way which respects the tradition but represents it in a way which is fresh. The room is large, buzzy and fun but we had one of the quieter booths at the back which suited us perfectly. Service was charming and attentive.

“Disappointing”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 12, 2012

We were part of a large group (12 people)..service was unbelievably slow, one order was misses and most food was indelibly salty. Don't waste your money.

“One of the best Schnitzel places in Vienna”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 8, 2012

Great atmosphere, great Schnitzel, and good wine. The desserts are somewhat wanting, but who can eat a dessert after such a huge Schnitzel?
