“Old world ambiance and comforting food”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 12, 2014

This restaurant has a wonderful atmosphere. Beautiful dark wooden floors and walls coupled with crisp white table linens and candles. The food was very very good. I had the lamb special. It was a thick slice of leg of lamb with roasted potatoes and a ratatouille. The lamb was very tender and covered with a nice brown sauce. The potatoes were crisp and perfectly done. The ratatouille was also nice and tasty. The person I was with ordered a steak with mashed potatoes and cooked red cabbage on the side. They said that their steak was delicious and the entire meal was very good.

We both had a glass of red wine. It was Austrian and made from Zweigelt, Cabernet Sauvignin and Merlot grapes. First time I had had anything made from Zweigelt and it really made for a nice accompaniment to the lamb.

For the quality of the food the price was very reasonable. Highly recommend.

“Perfect Austrian experience”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 5, 2014

We lived in Vienna for 4 years and Gmoa Keller is an institution. It is allegedly one of the oldest restaurants in the city, and you can believe it when you look at the wood-panelled walls and feel the atmosphere. It is always full of locals, which is a good indication of its popularity, but does mean you should probably book. The food is high-quality Austrian. The service might be a little curt, but that is pretty normal in Vienna!

“Eat and go”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 30, 2014

This restaurant serves classic Austrian cuisine for a reasonable price. The food is quite good actually and thats about it. This place lacks atmosphere (very old fashioned decoration) and the service is friendly but very speedy. They take away ur plate right after u finish it.

Recommended if u wanna have a quick dinner but thats about it

“Very good "Gasthaus"”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2014

I was there with a business partner.
The meat was excellent, just right. Colleagues had Schnitzel, and were very satisfied.
For dessert I had the Tichy Eismarillenknödel, which is a standard product (I knew this) - also very fine.
