Neighbourhood: Kreuzberg
Description: For years, this place has been a must for fiends of traditional Austrian cooking, without chichi and flourishes. Here, everything is cooked by hand. The Wiener Schnitzel looms, just like before, beyond the plate. The frest country beer bubbles out of the basement. Those who can should not do wothout a sugared, cut-up pancake, the Kaiserschmarrn, with raisins.

Very good schnitzel, awful service. Never met an owner so depressed, unfriendly and rude. Saying the restaurant is full when it clearly isn’t (luckily I made a reservation), then having to wait to get attended forever when cleaning glasses and organising coffee cups is clearly more important to finally being told that I can’t change my order because apparently it is too complicated/ take too long and I should know rude. Real shame because the place is authentic and the schnitzel very nice

Schnitzel is excellent. Large one is really large!! Potatoes and cucumbers salad is really good. Great beers and rustic charm. Helpful staff and typically German in their attitude.

Very good Austrian food. Very good service. Worth the price. Recommend to everyone. We had beef stew and schnitzel and beer of course, enjoyed it very very much!

This is a good austrian restaurant, not great. we had a nice evening there, although it was a little empty. the reason for that is probably the prices, which are quite high for this type of basic austrian/bavarian cuisine (the level is what the germans might call gutbürgerlich = good middle-class). we had the backhendl and the tafelspitz, two of my very favorite austrian dishes. both were competently prepared and tasty, if not sit up and take notice good. but the prices for them: 16.80 and 17.80 euros were high. less so for the tafelspitz, which is a more involved dish, but 17 for backhendl is definitely high, given the kind of restaurant and the quality.

a big minus is the absence of a really good austrian or czech beer on tap.

still, you can have a tasty, filling, comfy meal here, especially if you need a fix of this type of cuisine, which i periodically do.

The prices are definitely a bit steep for the neighbourhood, but the both of our tried dishes (their schnitzel with potatoes and asparagus, and the fried chicken) were good, with the chicken maybe being slightly better even (it came with a mesmerisignly good cucumber salad as well).

A special note on the service as well: we were served by a very friendly waiter, who had excellent English, and made the meal very entertaining.
