“An excellent way to experience an Austrian classic”
Reviewed February 9, 2014

Reading a guide book while sat in a bar just over the road, we decided to test out the huge Schnitzel that Figlmueller is known for.

Opting for the classic Schnitzel with accompanying salad, we weren't disappointed. The Schnitzel itself was tasty and tender, while size-wise it overhung the plate on which it was served. The salads - traditional green or potato - were also a decent size.

Service was quick, although the restaurant was far from full, and staff were friendly. An excellent way to experience an Austrian classic.

“Absolutely must visit!”
Reviewed February 6, 2014

Wiener Schnitzel is one of the biggest attractions in Wien:) Figlmueller is one of the famous places to taste it! A huge piece of well-done meat spreads all over the plate! A potato soup is also fantastic! You have no chances to leave this restaurant hungry:)

“Can't get enough of that Schnitzel!”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

Me and my wife knew that we must dine in this restaurant one we get to Vienna and we were not disappointed. We ate the Figlmueller Schnitzel with their special potato salad on the side and it was delicious and we had no trouble overcoming the huge size of the dish.
The service was great and the place's look and feel are special. Very recommended!

“Best Schnitzel!”
Reviewed February 5, 2014

Mouth watering Schnitzel! Go early or there will be a long line out the door. The portion is large so bring an appetite. The goulash is also delicious.

“Nice”
Reviewed February 4, 2014 via mobile

Its a traditional restaurant.
Its Small and crowded.
In the old city.
Good service.
You have to order the traditional dish.
The price is not cheap.
Try for the experience not because of the quality of the food.
