Looking for somewhere to eat late lunch in Museum Quarter and managed to find this place tucked away behind the shops, Very accommodating head waiter and helpful staff. Food was very good and reasonable - Roast goose recommended.

Great restaurant. We went there four times in a week, and discovered that it is closed Saturday night. Food was excellent, especially the smoked spear ribs, not to mention the Wiener schnitzel. Service was great as were the suggestions for wine and cocktails. Loved the place.

It is on a quiet street but it is not a long walk from Mariahilfer Strasse. We enjoyed a quiet dinner. The wienerschnitzel was very good. The fish had a bit of a fishy taste and less tasty than some other restaurants we visited. But friendly staff and good wine. We would go back.

We visited the restaurant during very early lunch hours with a business crew of almost 15. The Slovak restaurant owner was greeting everybody warmly and personally by the cloakroom. Excellent! We ate local steaks, the food was very good. Dessert was a great mix of mousse and ice creams. Taste buds were pampered! At the end of lunch the friendly... More

As this great restaurant is not right on the main drag , not too many tourists find their way there. It is busy with the locals and this is always a good sign! I was lucky enough to dine there a couple of times during my visit to Vienna. A warm welcome by the owner/ staff and one can feel... More

We dined here with our group - felt very special as they opened that evening just for our group. The salmon salad starter with a soft cooked egg was delicious, so creamy. I had the halibut with risotto - very creamy (the greens were a bit bitter for me, still lovely though). The Kaiserschmarren topped with Zwetschkenroster (soft pancake pieces... More

This place is off the beaten path in Vienna but well worth the side trip. The food was the best we have had after 3 weeks on the road. The owner came by our table and spent a fair amount of time visiting with us. He told us that only 3-5% of their customers were tourists, the rest being locals.... More

We went here as part of a tour group for our "Farewell dinner". Service was really quite exceptional given the size of our group. Wine glasses were quickly topped off and courses appeared and were cleared quickly. The 3-course meal was excellent from start to finish. We had a marinated salmon, arugula and egg salad with couscous for an appetizer.... More

Staying in Neubau

Neighbourhood Profile
Vienna’s art district, Neubau buzzes with galleries, arts and crafts, trendy restaurants, avant-garde shops, and cafés. Neubau’s Spittelberg quarter with cobblestoned Spittelberggasse and Gutenberggasse make for a perfect stroll alongside Biedermeier houses and art shops. Don’t miss the historic courtyard at Amerlinghaus with its typical Pawlatschen galleries, a perfect hangout on a warm summer evening. Museumsquartier is Neubau’s undisputed highlight: the former Imperial stables house various top museums of 19th to 21st century art. If you love interiors, head for the Imperial Furniture museum (Hofmobiliendepot), one of the world’s largest furniture collections. Find your favorites among a dazzling array of Baroque, Biedermeier, Art Nouveau and Modernist chairs, sofas, cupboards, coat hangers, foot stools and wash basins. No weekend visit would be complete without stopping by a local café on a weekend morning for brunch.
