We called to make late reservations and were accommodated on 2 occasions. Friendly owner, decent food, cozy atmosphere. What more could you ask for on a cold December evening? Prices are very good and food quality suits what you come here looking for - a traditional Vienna style, hearty meal. Some good local wines rounded off a nice experience for... More

Six of us had a lovely evening meal here in October. I found it on TA and thought we should try it, and we weren't disappointed. Good choices and reasonable prices

Two decent entrees without any mention, then I ordered a wiener schnitzel, but as the course arrives I see a very thin slice piece of meat made on the grill swimming in a brown sauce: so I asked the waiter why my wiener schnitzel wasnt pan-fried as...

We came to this restaurant on the recommendation of our hotel and were not disappointed! It is down a side street and you might not pass by but do search it out as the atmosphere and food are well worth it! We enjoyed it so much that we ate here twice on our three night stay in Vienna. It's a... More

Excellent meal, good value and the red and white wine recommended to us by the head waiter were fantastic tasting and reasonable prices. Veal Schnitzel was plentiful as was the beef and onions dish. White choc cake dessert was very flavoursome but we were so full, we had to share!

Take 45 minutes for a casual stroll through Bäckerstrasse, Sonnenfelsgasse, Köllnerhofgasse, Grashofgasse, and Schönlaterngasse. This quarter is packed with stories and legends that will enrich your Vienna experience.
