“Bad food in a nice setting”
Reviewed 2 December 2011

This restaurant has a nice feel inside, but our food did not match the ambiance. A squash soup was very thin and so salty it couldn't be eaten. Our main courses were not much better, with meat almost mealy in texture covered by uninspired sauces. We kind of felt sorry for the server having to bring such stuff to the table, even though she completely forgot to bring the wine that was ordered. Go ahead and have a drink there for the setting, but go elsewhere for your meal.

“Better food and service than in Vienna”
Reviewed 5 October 2010

We ate here twice. It is on Luisenplatz and near the Luisenplatz Sud tram stop. Service was wonderful even when we came in very near closing time. We never felt rushed. The service was wonderful and after our first meal we were presented with a 30% off coupon for our next visit.

The food was terrrific too. The Weiner Schnitzel was better than the famous Figlmueller in Vienna and prepared fresh. You could hear the chef pound the veal! The salads are more like what Americans are used to. We also had the Sauerbraten on another visit which was very good.

Save room for dessert ! Tthe restaurant carries the famous original Sacher Torte! My wife had a variation of a black forest cake that she liked. She was not as excited about the apple marzipan cake as the flavoring was very mild. But, I loved the baked cheesecake which was almost like my Great Grandmother used to make.

I highly recommend the restaurant.
