Authentic atmosphere with musicians playing around the tables, good service and tasty food! We ordered wiener schnitzel and gulasch, both were delicious. The prices are not cheap but same as other restaurants in Vienna. Would definitely come again.

Found this restaurant on a map. Described as typically Viennese/Austrian. It's in a cellar so very atmospheric. The menu is very typical, with hearty portions. It's very popular. So go early or book.

Old University Quarter
North of St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Vienna suddenly
turns small, winding and medieval, opening up to
legendary places such as the Basilisk sculpture at
Schönlaterngasse, as well as glamorous baroque
façades, courtyards and churches. Take 45 minutes for
a casual stroll through Bäckerstrasse,
Sonnenfelsgasse, Köllnerhofgasse, Grashofgasse, and
Schönlaterngasse. This quarter is packed with stories
