...But a gem nevertheless. We thoroughly enjoyed our couple of days in Vienna last year; this restaurant was part of that pleasurable discovery. Comfortable, cosy, darkish, it offers a warm rather than dazzling experience. Not challenging, easy to do, and we felt we'd had a...More

Since when is "not crowded" a detriment? We seemed to be the only customers for lunch. If that's enough to upset you, if you want to follow the crowd, then don't go here. Otherwise: they recognized and fully met their need for a new chef....More

With the experience we had, this place really should no longer be rated as a 1 star Michelin. I started with a salad that was swimming in its dressing, it was almost inedible. My second course of soup was so salty I added 1/4 cp...More

The food was amazing! We each started with pasta and white truffles. I had the lamb and my husband had the 'bunny," both accompanied by a wonderful bottle of Austrian wine. The service was professional, as was the overall presentation. Most of the men wore...More

Michelin starred restaurant in the heart of Vienna. More traditional cooking (and presentation) but excellent preparation. Extensive wine list. Cosy atmosphere and more like a family dining room than a restaurant.

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

I'm sorry I don't recall. I found them in the guide Michelin and it usually has hours but my copy isn't handy. I do know we were there late in the evening.
