We visited this restaurant late in the evening and I suppose that this was the reason of the speed of the staff. It's a typical heuriger. The food was ok, the prices also. I would go again for sure...

Food was really good, ordered the chefs special and shared, there was a lot of food! Both wines we tried were good. The service was a bit slow. Finished our first class of wine before she came back for food order. Eclectic Bavarian feel

We decided to go outside of Vienna to take in the local food at Alter Bach-Hengl. It was in a quaint little town of Grinzing just outside of Vienna. Go at night as the town lights up. I have read previous reviews that complained that...More

Vienna’s poshest green leafy suburb is also its most
romantic hotspot. Walk up Grinzinger Strasse with its
many historic wine taverns. The tops of nearby
Nussberg and Reisenberg hills make for great strolls
through the vineyards, and the occasional discovery of
a hidden winery. Popular local weekend hangouts are
Neustift am Walde with even more great wine taverns,
and café restaurant Cobenzl, up on Cobenzl hill –
