Came as per TripAdvisor recommendation, as follow up on Viennese cilinary tradition after dining at Plachutta yesterday. Perfectly balanced taste, attentive service regardless of constant inflow of diners.

Great service in elegant settings. Our waiter was very attentive and spoke perfect English, we didn't see our glasses empty. The Wiener Schnitzel was outstanding, by far the best I've ever tried (and I order that everyday when in this part of the world), so light and flavorful, I had a hard time not coming back everyday to this place....

We went here to have the tafelspitz (boiled beaf/veal in broth, an Austrian specialty) and were not disappointed. The restaurant was packed, but the service was fine. The location is central.

Very tasty Viennese food and plenty of it. Great staff and a nice setting, even during a busy and crowded dinner hour. Nice selection of wine or beer that matches the food well. Be sure to make a reservation as this is a understandably popular restaurant.

We had a family dinner on Christmas Eve. We had 6 adults in our group, plus one toddler. We had a private room, which made it so much easier to deal with the little one. The food (mostly Viennese specialties) was delicious and the service very good, though it did seem we were forgotten for short periods of time. To... More

We had an excellent traditional dinner and tried their famous (giant) Wienerschnitzel: everything perfect, the restaurant has a lively atmosphere, service is timely, the staff is very professional with a friendly touch. Cakes super, good wine list. Congrats

Plaschuttas does the best light, airy schnitzel. It was so good, I ate there twice during my visit. Service is efficient and the decor is clean and modern. Everything that I have had on the menu is excellent, fresh and authentic. Though overrun with tourists, the restaurant maintains the highest quality standards. Reservations are a must.

Thank Victoria P

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
