Simple food, literally like home cooking. Without flair but full of flavour and delicious. Setting was also like sitting at home, so it’s not a particularly atmospheric or romantic setting, and doesn’t aid a relaxed long dinner over a bottle of wine after a day...More

I liked this spot as it was not traditional Austrian looking but a little bit alternative style and in that way modern. I really liked the atmosphere although I didn't feld too comfortable as it was quite cold inside I had to wear my scarf...More

No fuss, no wannabe sophistication. Honest food, served as if straight from my grandmother's pots, with decent wine and friendly service. This place will be added to the routine go-to options for dinner after work.

I had a good premonition when I saw the handwritten menu, with items crossed off as they ran out. The waitress cheerfully explained each item to me in English. I had a clear beef soup, cabbage roll, and apple strudel. Everything was perfect. I was...More

Stuffed with meat and rice with yoghurt and potatoes. This was surprisingly delicious. My partner and her mother had spinach dumplings which again were extremely delicious. For desert we all had Rhubarb compote. This restaurant is not fine dining, and is filled with locals, is...More

The fourth district combines elegant tradition with
contemporary style and relaxed living. More than a
dozen town palaces and churches such as St. Charles
Borromeo have added glamour to a neighbourhood known
for its traditional retail and crafts shops, taverns,
cafés. Wieden is also home to Naschmarkt, Vienna’s
largest street market. Many bohemian types have found
their way to Wieden: meet them in trendy cafés and
