This was my second visit to Vienna, and second trip to this restaurant. And, it was everything I remember so fondly. The food is traditional as is the atmosphere--and it is all as it should be. Its a great meal. FYI--the neighborhood is becoming more...bustling, there is no smoking in there restaurant now (which is great).More

Everything perfect till one of the waitress sarcastically blamed on me because I rounded up of 10cents the bill. Even though they are 10cents, it's money for free I am giving you. Next time, don't even ask if I want to tip, you make a...better figure. This is not how a costumer should be treated. Shade!More

The waitress was rather estounded than sarcastic. Tip is your appriciation, you start your review with "everathing perfect". Your criticism is at least disproportionate.

Had the boiled beef, lamb and meatballs. All were pretty good but not sensational. Well cooked food with decent flavour. Service was ok too not bad but not over the top good. Overall worth a visit if you are in the area.

The atmosphere was old and authentic. The food was perfect, except the salad that looked like a soup. Priced mid-range. The drawback was you can smoke inside. As a smoker I didn't want to bother other visitors and walked outside to have one.

Wow - what a great great place!! We were in Vienna in May 2019 for four days and were strolling by and thought "let's grab supper here" (it was around 8:00 PM). We were surprised to learn that the place was packed and without reservations...it would be about 90 minutes before a table for three opened (this was mid-week!). Well, we were too hungry to wait but made reservations for the next day, and thank goodness we did! What an amazing restaurant!! The atmosphere was great and very cozy (it is a family business that expanded over the years so there are about five 'areas' that expand as you go deeper inside, they seem to sit about 6 tables per area). Our meals were tremendous and the staff so friendly! We had starters, mains, desserts, ample wine (plus after-dinner drinks!) all ending in a shockingly reasonable price! We enjoyed ourselves so much we made reservations for a few days later to end our trip before heading to Prague. I can only promise you that this is an amazing place and is always full (we love supporting family businesses) but do make reservations (phone or otherwise) and I am positive you will not be disappointed!More

Saw this place on a wee travel blog and searched it out. The pluses were that the food was delicious, hot red beet soup which was fantastic and boiled beef with potato hash and Apple. Both dishes were lovely. The minuses, the place opens at...6 but kitchen opens at 7, there is a smoking area at the front which you have to get through for non-smoking area. The area at the rear was a bit grubby, marks on table cloth and lighting was a bit dingy. We were the only ones in their initially at the place was lacking in atmosphere. The main waitress was a bit arsey and wouldn't let us order food until 7 so we nursed our beer for bit.More

Eating here felt like going back in time - we drank beer and ate basic but tasty food by candlelight. Arriving late, 1030 after the opera, we just made last orders for the kitchen on a cold, wet wintery Monday night. We cosied in with...a couple of huge beers and waited for our food. A group of twentysomething locals saved us from being the only people in the place and it was atmospheric but quiet. In the candlelight it was difficult to tell which dish was duck and which was deer...both were served with decent roasties and boiled veg. Both meats were a little over but served with sauces that both packed a punch in terms of richness. We were happy just be fed so heartily so late at night but I'm not sure we'd go back. I'm sure we'd have whiled away the evening there with more beers if we'd been earlier and it did have a certain amount of authentic but dare I say it, grubby charm...if you're on the Bourdain trail in Vienna, we had a much better time at Urbanek at the Naschtmarkt.More

Cheap and tasty traditional Austrian dishes and good wines and beer. Unfortunately the place is old, dark and you come out smelling strongly of cooking fat.

The reviews for this restaurant persuaded me to go with my family and to be honest the service was good and the food was tasty. For some reason though we were taken into a back room to eat rather than kept in the front (having...turned down the option of eating on the roadside) which meant there was absolutely no atmosphere and a really dreadful damp, cloying smell. The music was dreary, the place was basic and it felt heavy and cloying. I just couldn't wait to leave and get out into the fresh air. It was like eating in a damp cellar. i absolutely loathed it and the food did not make up for the awful atmosphere and ambiance.More

I had dinner with friends here and it was realy interesting. All of us were realy happy with food, and overall atmosphere, interior desing and decoration was also great part of experience. Meel I had was very good, but what impressed me most was the...desert, Kaiserschmarrn and something apparently simillar to this (but not the same, different treatment of dough) both with different kinds of jelly... Now, downsides to this place are slow service and that is what you have to expect, and that I think smoking is allowed everywhere, so there is not actual smoking corner or something, but it is everywhere. Thing is, I do smoke moderately, even not at all at times, but generaly I am not radical against this if this is in decent measure... Here it was a bit too much even for me who smokes couple of cigarets per day...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.

You don't need to place a reservation. Yes, smoking inside is allowed although some visitors like us we smoked outside.
