From walking in and being only tourists you could see why the locals come here. Friendly service, local music playing, wonderful atmosphere, fantastic local food washed down with superb local beer Gosser Gold, had Gruner Veltliner wine with main meal. If you can fit in dessert ensure you have the Apfelstrudel with vanilla sauce! VERY REASONABLE prices too!

Be warned that this is a smoking restaurant, as in even the staff serving smokes whilst doing so. If we were not so hungry, tired and cold by the time we arrived we would have searched on for somewhere else. Food was over priced for what we got, was tasty enough but nothing much to write home about.

We had a tough time finding a place without reservations and without smoking. Although it seems smoking was allowed at the bar, the restaurant part in front had no smoking. And there was no trouble getting a table. It was pretty sparse. We were concerned why. Maybe being down a side alley. But the food was very good and the... More

Ugly waiter. He was friendly only with the local people. The ,,original Wiener schnitzel,, has a POORE quality. (10.09.2016)

Terrible experience, the schmanckerl menue turned out to be a total flop: 1 soup (leberknoedlsuppe seemed to be expired, bad taste, industrial ingredients; potatoe soup (overcooked, probably the third time) 2 main dish: small portion of fried chicken (average 80s gastronomie), baked chicken liver (dry, strange taste), salad (side dish?) sucked in oil and vinegar after some minutes not eatable,...

The food was very tasty and the portion size was nice. The beer was cold and the menu in English, which helped. As this was our first dinner out in Vienna I was surprised that the table water was 5Euro and the waiter dropped bread on the table, but charged us 1.2 Euro for each piece we ate, and we... More

Excellent food. It is not wonder why it is always full of locals. True schnitzel is the best we have eaten !! The menu has many local delicacies

We ate here the first night in Vienna when we couldn't find the beisel we were looking for. Tasty food, friendly waiter, plenty of locals in eating.

Hearty food at a low price. Service was very quick. Recommend the beef in red wine sauce and fried potatoes.

We wanted to have lunch off the tourist track so we chose this little restaurant at random. Clearly a local eating house at lunchtime and after a grumpy greeting by the waiter, we still decided to try it. I had the schnitzel ( of course) and Lynn had the white asparagus in a home made hollaiinday sauce. Our meals were... More

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
