“Ok dinner but we had better”
Reviewed September 15, 2013

We stopped here for dinner based on the reviews from Tripadvisor. I would say it was OK but it was our least favorite of the dinners we had in Vienna this trip. Definitely full of tourists as mentioned ... the inside of the restaurant is nice and rustic with lots of country charm. The service was good and friendly for sure; the menu had all the usual items .. we had the cammenbert and Vienniese soup to start (both OK .. somewhat pubbish in quality) and then the schniztel and beef for dinner. Once again both were just OK. Total bill after drinks was $53E ... I would definitely say there are better options around for sure and would not return ourselves on our next trip to town.

“Authentic meal”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

Went here as a result of the trip advisor reviews.
It is lovely. I had snails followed by stuffed steak. The whole experience is great and for the quality it is reasonable. Be warned, Vienna is very expensive. This is cosy, good food and at a good price.

“Overrated”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

IMO this restaurant is extremely overrated here on TA. We went there one evening based on the good ratings but food as well as atmosphere was nothing special. Schnitzel was very tender and dry. The restaurant is crowded with tourists and we were later told by our concierge that the locals try to avoid Purstner. Given the fact that our check was fairly high you will find better restaurants for the same or a slightly higher price within a short walking distance.

“Best Weiner schnitzel in all of Austria”
Reviewed August 18, 2013

We found this restaurant on trip advisor and were not disappointed. It is located in a very nice neighborhood, just a few blocks from the train station. We sat outside since it was a beautiful night. The portions were huge and the food was delicious. The waiter was very nice and spoke enough English to get by. The prices were reasonable and the atmosphere casual. I would definitely go back if ever in Vienna again.

“Nice place and good food”
Reviewed August 3, 2013

I went there with a friend on a saturday night. The place looks really nice and cosy, it was kinda hot so we sat outside but they have fans inside so it might have been cooler. We ordered the famous shnitzel. The shnitzels themselves were really delicious but they would have been even better with an accompaning salad (you can order a side salad -we did that, it was delicious as well, dressing was amazing- but they charge you extra). All we had were potatoes which were a bit blend. We ordered some french fries as well which were not crispy enough. But overall it was a nice dining experience, we recommend this restaurant.
