We liked this restaurant very much a few years ago, but it seems to have gone badly downhill. We would not go here again, because there are many better restaurants in Vienna for the price one pays here. Our most recent visit was on 28...More

Service really mediocre and borderline unfriendly. Menu was promising but main dish (fish) was overcooked and consequently dry and ruined. Fish does never be overcooked. Never. This is elementary. On paying the bill, not a word from the waiter. Not even goodbye! We found it...More

I am a regular guest at Gaumenspiel and as the saying goes they never cease to amaze me (in a very positive manner). Time and time again I am amazed and taken by their excellent food, perfect flavours and combinations and good service. I do...More

Our party of 12 visited this restaurant and enjoyed good food. The service was so slow that dinner took 3 hours! the saving grace was friendly service. I would visit this restaurant again.

Gaumenspiel is a nice looking restaurant with decent service. It is for that reason that I give it a second star. The restaurant intends to serve high end food, but fails miserably. The dishes we ordered were disjointed and unappealing. It was sad because the...More

We were on a week-long family reunion in Vienna - 8 of us - and, not being complete novices in this city with close family connections for us, ate mainly in 1st district traditional places just off the main tourist routes, which proved an excellent...More

To be short it is one of those places you should not recommend as you would like to keep it a secret as long as possible. We went on a Monday evening and as such the place was not busy and we got a nice...More

The food was delicious, inventive and beautifully presented. However, it took over 3 hours to eat our meal so we suspected that the kitchen was trying to service too many covers. It was a Saturday night and we had dropped in on the off-chance but...More

Vienna’s art district, Neubau buzzes with galleries,
arts and crafts, trendy restaurants, avant-garde
shops, and cafés. Neubau’s Spittelberg quarter with
cobblestoned Spittelberggasse and Gutenberggasse make
for a perfect stroll alongside Biedermeier houses and
art shops. Don’t miss the historic courtyard at
Amerlinghaus with its typical Pawlatschen galleries, a
perfect hangout on a warm summer evening.
