The service was great and we enjoyed the food. I tried the Wienner Schnitzel and the Boiled Roast Beef, both were perfectly executed. Beer and coffee were also good. Works great when you don't have a lot of time to spend.

I visited here for lunch and the food was not bad. It felt like average dish at a rather high price. Some of the staff members seemed cynical to tourists, but manager-like staff members were friendly.

This Plachuttas is in the middle of it all ... provides a great Vienna experience ... food is classic and the service is Teutonic (very efficient) ... if the weather permits outside dinning is a bonus ...
