I had the ribs, and my wife had the "Cordon Bleu" schnitzel. Very tasty, though hard to finish ( but we had to do it ). Only disappointment was the small range of drinks for anyone who doesn't drink wine or beer, but the First American Bar at the end of the street has 250 cocktails and is a great place to visit beforehand.

Had a lovely late night meal here my first night in Vienna - cordon blue, and a beef and Camembert entree with gravy and potatoes. Nice atmosphere, the service was friendly and efficient, and the unfiltered beer cold and refreshing. Would definitely go back!

This was another Restaurant recommended by our Hotel concierge and again we were not disappointed. We had not made a booking (Booking is highly recommended) but despite the Restaurant being busy a table was arranged for us. The service was most efficient and good advice was given re a suitable wine. Servings were generous and the food excellent - we both had the beef goulash and spatzle, and found the prices reasonable. Atmosphere was good as were the surroundings

Went out last evening and had the most wonderful Gansl (or goose) here. As it is now Martini Gansl celebration we just had to get out and have some goose. Usually you have to order goose in advance at Wein restaurants, but we were able to walk into Purstner's and they had it on the menu. What a wonderful surprise!!!! It was also so very tasty and came with the traditional cabbage and potato. Highly recommend going here for their goose!

Purstner is really close to where we are staying and received good Tripadvisor reviews so we decided to try it for ourselves last night. I had the veal & beef medallions with steamed veggies and the apple strudel. It was a nice meal with significantly sized servings, without being anything out of the box. The wine I had (recommended) was very ordinary. Neither compared with the meal we had the previous evening. Service was polite and efficient ( but I do have a bit of a problem with waiters dressed in lederhosen, a bit too touristy?)
