“Good veal !”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2013 via mobile

We enjoyed the good food and wine here.
Ideal for a group of 8 on a wet evening ;)
The wine was delicious too ;)
This place is well worth a visit.

“Lovely surprise”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 October 2013

Found this place by accident on our first night in Vienna. It was raining fairly heavily and we just popped into the first place we came to.

We initially planned to have a drink or two. Their dark (dunkl) beer is excellent. Rich and sweet. I am not ashamed to say that I had a few more than two and we decided to eat.

The food is traditional Austrian. I had gnocchi and it was excellent. Filling, as you'd expect, but also very tasty.

I passed on desert (in favour of another dunkl), but my partner had the apple strudel which she said was excellent.

Service was welcoming, friendly and attentive.

Thoroughly enjoyed our visit.

“Try the "Marillenknödel"”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 24 September 2013

For many years this has been THE restaurant were we go every time we are in Vienna. This time, too, we were not disappointed. The food was nice but the Marillenknödel were just perfect. The restaurant is also nicely decorated. And not to forget the staff. They are always very friendly. We're looking forward to come to the Pfudl next time we're in Vienna.

“Lovely little place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 September 2013

We found this small restaurant entirely accidentally after having walked away from yet another duff guide book recommendation and we were very glad we did. The staff were extremely friendly and welcoming and the service was very good. Whilst the menu is not the most extensive the largely traditional Viennese dishes that they serve were excellent - My Tafelspitz was particularly good the first time we visited. We liked it so much that we went back for our last night in Vienna rather than risk disappointment with an unfamiliar place elsewhere

“Restaurant for the locals!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 20 September 2013

This restaurant is nearby to popular tourist restaurants where people queue out of the door to be crammed together with other tourists. This restaurant is a typical, traditional Viennese restaurant that is patronised by the Viennese.
The service was excellent and friendly and the menu offered a a good choice of local meat and fish dishes. Local beers are available on tap.
There were a couple of people who smoked here so stay away if you can't handle this.
