“Don't go here!”
Reviewed February 19, 2012

We got this resturant recommended from the lovely receptionist at our hotel (Hollmann-Beletage),and we gave it a try. Don't do the same mistake!! The food is horrible!! The service is OK,The wine as well,but the food is horrible.. My boyfriend had beef tartar as a starter-not good.. Too much and very boring. He had the Scnitzel as a main course,which mainly contained fry and tasteless meet. I had the veal on mashed potatoes as a main course,and it tasted nothing (!!) and it was very greasy and salty! Not(!!) good at all. We both got a stomach ace after the dinner,and we felt like we had been eating grease.. Pretty pricy as well,at least for that quality. Go to McDonalds instead! Seriously!

“Try the pumpkin soup”
Reviewed November 29, 2011

Tasty menu, lovely restaurant, nicely decorated, kind staff. Great pumpkin soup and loved the pasta with veal and black truffles. Steak tartare was meh but it was the only thing we didn't like. Good wines. Make sure you make a reservation, especially on the weekend.

“Enthusiastic and knowledgeable service”
Reviewed October 16, 2011

I've had two meals here and on both occasions the service was excellent; both in explaining the meals on offer and in suggesting very good Austrian wines to accompany the food. When it is a hot evening, the courtyard is a great place to eat. Yet to eat indoors in the winter but I will.
