“Excellent, authentic Austrian food in a 'Gasthouse' (not restaurant) environment”
Reviewed 30 May 2013

The food here is excellent and reasonably priced with a great menu. I had the tafel spitz (divine) and my partner the schnitzel, which he loved. The service was friendly, prompt and warm and the waiter was happy to recommend wines, of which there was a good selection both on the menu as well as extras on the board.

The atmosphere was a little so-so as there was no music and few people in there when we dined and the food came out extremely quickly, which didn't led to a nice 'dining' experience. However, it's important to note this is not a restaurant but actually a 'Gastwirtschaft' which is a cross between a bar and restaurant and it reflects that. The area is also not scenic, with the bar opposite a lap dance place. As long as you're not expecting a fancy restaurant or dining experience and go there for the food, you will not be disappointed.

“Disappointing”
Reviewed 3 May 2013

The essence of hospitality is that you are made to feel welcome. Well, we were not. Our hotel had made a reservation but the unsmiling lady who greeted us could not seem to find it and was off hand through the evening. This is clearly a favorite hang out for locals and perhaps not a great choice for visitors. The food was plentiful but unremarkable.

“Fine!”
Reviewed 7 April 2013 via mobile

Traditional atmosphere, traditional food, but varied and interesting menu. Almost always full, so book. Friendly service, good beer and wine. Don't miss!

“Authentic Austrian food in great atmosphere”
Reviewed 31 March 2013

We always eat in Gasthaus Schilling on Burggasse whenever we're in Vienna. The food is excellent and reasonably priced and there's a great selection of Austrian wines. Great place to have a meal before heading to Admiral Kino on Burggasse (one of the most charming small cinemas you'll ever see, even the sweets they sell are lovely old-fashioned).

“Great find!”
Reviewed 2 January 2013 via mobile

Went here by mistake on our first night in vienna and were so glad we did! It's a modern, chic little place that does great Viennese food. The waiter was amazing - helpful and very kind - and the food was quite tasty, especially for the price. It was the perfect welcome to Vienna, and definitely one of the better stops during our visit.
