This was not the Vienna heuriger experience I remember from 1980. At the end of the 38 tram in Grinzing, a short walk up the street and there you will find the world's largest collection of cork screws and an array of vineyard pruning knives and tools. The entrance to the place is so inviting, but that's where the inviting stops. We were seated quickly, though albeit rudely by a wait staff. The freshly pressed grape juice, white wine, and red wine were good. We ordered food at the counter from a grumpy lady who barked her annoyance at us, but finally warmed up ever so slightly. Light supper for 8 cost us 35 euro with a sampling of ham, side pork and sausages, bread, and kraut. The waiter never came back after the first delivery, but an accordian player and guitarist showed up. We sang edelweiss and and do re mi fa so la ti do. Come time to pay the drinks were 31 euro, I said 35 and the waiter kept 38 of my 100 and said ok and walked away. The place was not clean and quite smelly--doesn't help that smoking is still allowed. Sadly, I made a big mistake by bringing me friends to Reinprecht--I should've gone to Neustift am Walde--NOT Grinzing.

We went in because it looked like exactly the sort of place we wanted to find in Vienna. The decor is great, the atmosphere was fantastic. COuld we get a drink- hell no. Left after 20 minutes of enjoying the music

1000 year old Grinzing District in Vienna had many Heurige wine restaurants in the past.Unfortunately,slowly these old restaurants are disappearing and becoming embassies or condos.
The atmosphere is terrific.It's like being a guest in the farmer's home,centuries ago,eating his food and drinking his wine.The walls are covered with 200 year old muskettes,medievil lances and pikes,over 3,000 wine openers from all ages etc..The Hungarian violinist and the accordion player will play your song and the laughter from the guests fill the rooms.The Irish would call this a great crack!
Nowhere else in the world except in Vienna!

Had a very good night at this lovely Viennese restaurant, which many years ago was a Convent. The food was of high quality and the wine, from the family's own vineyard on site, was delicious! Loved the food - we were with a tour group so a set menu - good choices. The atmosphere was warm and friendly and the traditional Viennese music was the icing on the cake! Wonderful evening and will return.

as well as BRATELFETT & SCHMALZ - to go on their fresh rye bread - heavenly taste - deadly for ur system - the same goes for their KUEMMELBRATEN - delicious Spargelsalat (when in season) - point is: this Austrian Canadian American visits only every 10 years or so - and then WILL ENJOY to the FULLEST; small buffet selection - but has ALL the TYPICAL goodies of the region to accompany your fresh wine in a genuine Heurigen atmosphere with Schrammeln.
to 'boost' - I made an extra second trip to Reinprecht the day before overseas return flight -----
