“worth trying to find it”
Reviewed 28 December 2013

Whether it's the schnitzel or the liver dumpling soup; or whether you chose the Hungarian goulasch or the baked fish; or whether you wanted the beet salad or the potatoe salad as an appetizer - it's all so good! This little place has been producing top quality traditional food for a generation. You know it's good and authentic when the Vienese are the ones that are recommending it. It was my second time there but it won't be my last.

“A great traditional Austrian place”
Reviewed 15 October 2013 via mobile

This little restaurant just outside the very centre of Vienna has everything you would want from a Classic Austrian restaurant. The style is simple and so are the dishes but there's undoubtedly a great care behind the scenes. The food is tasteful and well sized. The restaurant seemed very cleaned both from the outside and inside.
Last but not least the service, very welcoming and efficient.
I would definitely recommend this restaurant to any passionate lover of proper Austrian food.

“Memories are made of this”
Reviewed 9 January 2013

My wife and I were in Winklers zum Posthorn for the first time three days after the Winkler team had re-opened it. We had made a telephone reservation from our home in Ireland, based on a friend's recommendation. When we got there, we were greeted as if we belonged to the family, or at least as if we had known each other for ages. The atmosphere, the food, the beer, the wine, the value-for-money, just everything, made us come back to Winklers every time we are in Vienna, which is about 6-8 times a year. We have introduced many of our world-wide friends to Winklers, and all of them do want to return to it. It is one of very few genuine gems of old-fashioned Viennese atmosphere/cuisine witha tremendous appeal. Well done, and long may it last. One note of caution: please make a reservation, by phone, email, SMS (we have used all methods successfully over the years), otherwise you might not find room at the inn....
