Great value food - huge portions, fairly priced, good quality, nice atmosphere.
Recommended if you are in the Westbahnhoff area.

Friendly, cheerful young staff and filling, tasty food. Not what you'd call fine dining, but just what you need if you're tired and hungry. Good beer too.

Not expensive.

Breakfast's a buffet-type affair, with pieces of different sorts of cheese, ham, fruit, buns, yoghurt, etc ranged round on tables - you wander around picking up whatever bits of ham, cheese, bread etc you want, then you take it back to a table and eat it. Quite good. If you want a second cup of coffee or some more cake or something there's no problem.

Stayed in the hotel next door. Went here every evening (unheard of by myself as I love to try lots of places)! Great beer, great food and great atmosphere!

During our stay in Vienna we ate at Mariahilfenbrau twice for dinner because the food and service was so good the first time. Both times we tried traditional Austrian dishes, e.g. schnitzel, goulash, meatloaf. The food was excellent on both occasions and was up there with the best we had in Vienna (better than the places we tried in the Karlsplatz/Staatsoper area for sure). Portion sizes are generous - our meals were filling, and we saw other tables order the XXL spare ribs and I can certainly attest to the XXL statement.

The service was also warm and friendly. On our first visit, our waitress chatted with us a little throughout the evening and joked around a bit with us, but was professional about it and not too familiar. She remembered us the second time we went back and was just as nice, treating us almost like we were regulars.

They also have separate smoking and non-smoking areas (separated by a door not just an invisible line on the ground!). I recommend a trip up Mariahilferstrasse to Mariahilfenbrau - it's about a 5-10 minute walk from Westbahnhof (or 1-2 tram stops) and in my experience, it's worth the trip.

3 girls from croatia wanted a nice meal for affordable price and we got it in this fabulous place. Definately try viennese specialties, we had potato goulash with sausages-spicy and it was to die for, amazing. The staff is wonderful and special thanks goes to out waitress claudia, she is an amazing girl. We had the best meal here while staying in vienna. Must see.
