Traditional ginger and potato soup for starter and then a classic schnitzel - all washed down with a great local beer and lovely red wine. Couldn't have asked for a nicer meal, great service and unbelievably good value with starters at around €4-6 and main courses from around €10. Couldn't recommend highly enough.

Not obvious as to where it is at first - but well worth the short walk from the metro. They tend to have two candle lanterns outside at night so you can see them once in Gierstrgasse. The owner is very hospitable and has a huge selection of local wines – 150 in total. The wines are well worth trying... More

Great cozy atmosphere, very nice food (at times duck, goose, deer). Also highly affordable. Very nice owner (I think it's him) aswell, who also serves customers with his staff. Will come back for sure.

Really cozy place in a non-touristy area of Vienna. The restaurant has two halls - for smokers and non-smokers and an outdoor courtyard with a Playground. Delicious observed from all types of meat - beef, chicken, and fish. Original beer, great desserts. Very cozy atmosphere and hospitality.

This is by far the best restaurant that I ate at in Vienna in 2 weeks. High quality fresh ingredients and a variety of different plates per week and day depending on the season

Only a short walk from our Star Inn hotel. Nice outdoor seating. Seemed patronized with only locals. Menu only in German, but very helpful owner and son with English translations. A beer and Campari with orange, two excellent soups, a vienerschnitzle main and a pork madallions in peppercorn sauce w/delicious mixed vegetables, two large kirshwassers, and two very good desserts!...

Like other reviewers we were staying at the Star Inn. After a long day in Vienna we wanted to eat close to the hotel. This restaurant is a stones throw away. They are non English speaking and there is no English menu but with the help of other diners we ordered an excellent goulash with dumplings, wine, followed by tiramisu... More

Description
The owner of the brewery, J. L. Gierster, founded a small inn in the area some 180 years ago, which was popular mainly because of its favorable prices. The Gierstergasse is still reminiscent of him today and is also home to a hotel where it is still nice and inexpensive to dine! The bread is homemade, the cuisine is traditional: Old Viennese potato ginger soup, beef goulash, stuffed peppers or roasted dumplings with onions and egg. You should not miss the homemade Powidltascherln or Stubenkninken. The best is to taste all this in the cozy garden under the mighty trees.
