“Great restaurant-best meals on our trip.”
Reviewed February 20, 2013

We visited by chance on Valentine's Day and were very lucky to secure the last available table. That night it was a set meal which showed cooking of the highest standard all washed down wit Austrian sauvignon blanc. Atmosphere was great and service polite and attentive. Red rose for my wife on our leaving restaurant completed a memorable evening.

Since this was the most enjoyable meal we had on our visit we returned on the last night of our trip to repeat the experience. We were not disappointed,

“What a Wonderful Experience!”
Reviewed January 29, 2013

We returned once again to ef16 and were once again impressed with an exceptional meal and wonderful service. We brought along a friend and business associate to introduce him to ef16 and he was VERY impressed with the food, service and price - and that is saying a LOT as he is from Paris, France. Our waiter, Florian (sp), never rushed us, was right there when we needed him, delivered our food at the appropriate time and pace, and even arranged for a special desert tray for the three of us. It was just an exceptional, relaxed and perfect evening. And the food, it was all just exceptional. The pumpkin soup was amazing, two of us had the venison hamburger over fettuccine, and my wife had the trout. Everything was prepared just perfect and served piping hot, just as it should be. We all had an appetizer, three entre's, the excellent dessert tray, a liter of the house red wine (very good), and it was 35 Euro a person. A real value for the quality of the meal and service. We highly recommend you add this to your list of places to be sure to go in Vienna. It is very close to the Schwedenplatz Uban stop on the U1 line so it is very convenient to get to. It is down a little walkway between two businesses, but easy to find! Call ahead for reservations on busy nights!

“Absolutely perfect”
Reviewed January 3, 2013

We read about this on tripadvisor, and as we both love wine bars and the general food served there, and happened to be nearby, we decided to check it out. We were so pleased we did! We were the only ones in there at first, and it took awhile for business to pick up, but when it did the clientele included couples on dates, friends out for quality time, families with small children, and everyone was treated with kindness, respect, and often greeted like old friends (which I believe they were--the place is the type to attract regulars). The wine list is almost entirely Austrian, and our server (the only server on the floor, may I add, which made the service more, rather than less, personable!) recommended glass after glass of unexpected delights. We had the venison carpaccio to start, which was delectable, and in slices so thin we couldn't work out how they made it from knife to plate. Then we had the salmon special (quite simple, with sweet potato puree and asparagus) and the lemon and thyme risotto with artichoke tempura and crispy pancetta. Both were equally fantastic--truly amazing, worth a far more expensive and exclusive restaurant's fare. Both were simply done, not too rich but incredibly savory, with flavor profiles that complimented the individual ingredients and the wines (recommended by our server) perfectly. But it wasn't over yet. The restaurant was out of our original dessert choice so instead the server suggested chestnuts three ways. Although I do not usually like chestnuts, we agreed anyway, and were far from disappointed. In truth, I'll never look at chestnuts the same way again! All of this, and the entire meal cost 77 euros (for 6 glasses of wine, a starter, two mains and a dessert). If you are a foodie, want authentic Viennese food with quality ingredients but no fuss, do not miss this restaurant when you are in Vienna!

“Fine Cooking / Une bonne table a prix raisonables”
Reviewed January 1, 2013

The place is not that easy to fine.
Close to Stefanddom but not on the main roads / paths.
Food is very inventive.
Wine is excellent.
The owner / waiter is just the friendly person you would like to be welcome by...entering a place with 9 persons, (Kids) and no reservation
