A great, central location to get some fantastic Austrian food. We had a pretzel with white radish and the meat sampler dinner for 2. What a culinary experience. All food was well prepared, presented traditionally, and a joy to eat. And despite the title, we fed three adults (2 men, 1 woman) easily with food to spare. This is also... More

Located close to the hauptbahnhof, this place is a decent choice for food and beer before taking your onward train connection. The beer was excellent and the schnitzel very decent. Reasonable prices too.

We went for dinner mid week u sure of what to expect. The staff were friendly despite being very busy, and took our drinks orders quickly. The waiter explained meals and drinks to us in English and was very friendly and courteous. The meals were very enjoyable, large serves which also arrived in reasonable time. They were apparently low on... More

I don't normally write reviews, but I saw so many reviews talking about how bad the service is here. So much so that it made me apprehensive to come. I'm Asian-American and I normally feel like an outsider in most situations in Europe. I do speak Italian, which helped I'm sure. I arrived at around 11am and, of course, the... More

This place is just okay! Nothing special about this place. Staff can be much more friendly. Most of the times waiters just don't give a damn

We were here with our family and our friends. 6 children with us. We could not appreciate the food (standard Austrian food) due to the extremely unpleasant personnel. They were constantly laughing at our shoulder letting us wait for any simple request. We have been waiting for water until the end of the dinner..even after several request. We were even... More

Not only good hearty food but good hearty music which makes for a great atmosphere! It was the Villacher Kirchtag so understandably very busy. Service good as ever. Good fun.

This is probably the best option you have for a great evening with plenty of local food, wide choice of beers and friendly service. We chose the mixed meat platter for 2 and a dish arrived that was able to feed a family of 4! Of course we couldn't finish it which is a pity given how good it was!

Thank GinoDW
