My wife and I saw this advertised on a hand out of Vienna and was the first restaurant we visited that was not recommended by a guide. We found it by the fun park near the big Ferris wheel near to a large train station....More

Stopped for lunch here on a busy Sunday afternoon! Pork knuckle was excellent and definitely worth a try. Order one for 2/3 people. Beer was also excellent, however don't expect good service! Would recommend!

The ribs are great here! The decoration is not modern and the tables are not clean enough. Comming back to the dish i think that ribs were great but they should add some salad.

We had to choose this place since all other restaurants in Prater seemed to be closed during wintertime. Nothing spectacular - the usual garlic soup, all kinds of schnitzels etc. Pretty large portions that need to be properly watered (or rather beered) down.

Welcome to one of Vienna’s trendiest quarters. The
second district has witnessed a turbulent ride, from
medieval swamp to vibrant Jewish quarter, from
pleasure ground for the noble and humble to current
hip residence and workplace of Vienna’s creative
crowd. Cross the Danube Canal from the city centre and
take in life on Taborstrasse with its mix of old
townhouses, churches, theatres, discount shops and
