An interesting restaurant which sprawls over 3 different and ever lower cellars. The restaurant is at least 300 years old and the building itself dates back to 1339. The food was good and reasonably priced and we were even serenaded by the house band. It...More

Nice hall, the worst food and wine. No draught beers. When you see 3 star rating you can hope for an unordinary experience - that's not. Very very unpleasant place. Good place to meet a lot of country people without any sense of manner.

It is very close to city center. Nice music by a violin. Especially meat foods and local vine is worth to try.

Straddling near the edge of Vienna's old town center is this restaurant. Commonly frequented by travel groups, its cool interiors may attract most except someone who is claustrophobic. The food they serve is mediocre and the service needs to be improved. The last time we...More

Enjoyed the interior, with its mysterious hallways and cozy booths. Walking down the steps gave anticipation to what it would look like. It was dark and interesting. . .so different from the art deco and baroque interiors of Vienna.

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
