“A decent lunch time spot”
Reviewed 4 March 2014

We stopped in here for a late lunch in February 2014 and had a better experience than most reviewers, it seemed (and our guidebook warned us about Vienna's notoriously grumpy and slow cafe wait staff). There were few occupied tables at that time, so service was relatively quick and friendly and our food choices were a success - the Viennese equivalent of a ham and cheese panini (him) and a huge tuna salad (me). A couple of nice draft beers did not go amiss either. Afterwards, it did take a few minutes to get the waitress' attention in order to order a melange coffee, but if you're not in a rush, this place offers a nice slice of the Viennese experience.

“Dreadful: definitely one to avoid!”
Reviewed 17 December 2013

Like other reviewers, we went to this place on our first evening as it was close to the hotel and seemed nice and handy after a long day travelling and walking around. Had we read the reviews we probably wouldn't have bothered; from the moment we walked in the door it was awful. The surly waitress ignored us, and then when we sat ourselves down she came over and threw the menus at us. Another waitress appeared and they seems to have a fight over where we were sitting and who should be serving us. Eventually the second waitress came and took our order. My husband's meal arrived a good 10 minutes before mine and quite frankly, both plates looked pretty awful and didn't taste much better. Fortunately, I'd just had a mugful of Gluhwein whilst walking around a Christmas market and that probably took the edge off of how dreadful it was there......there are so many much nicer places to go so avoid this one like the plague!

“good service, good meal”
Reviewed 5 December 2013

We went to cafe Raimund for an evening meal and were happy with what we were served - a great traditional Viennese potato salad and pork shnitzel which was huge! Nice service, nice interior, reasonable prices. The only thing that disappointed me was that the gluhwein that we ordered was not a real authentic one but a teabag served with sugar and hot water, I was hoping to receive smth like the one we tried before that at the Christmas market near the Rathaus.

“Ok”
Reviewed 22 November 2013

We decided to eat here since it was close to our hotel and we were exhausted after being on our feet all day. I had not read the reviews of Trip Advisor but our experience was ok. I asked our friendly waitress (not the older one people have mentioned) if the dumpling/sauerkraut meal had meat in it as I am a vegetarian. She said she would ask the cook to make me a veg dumpling. It was delicious and meat free, however, as in all restaurants in Vienna, the sauerkraut contained pork. My companion had tafelspitz & a chocolate dessert both of which she said were very good. When it was time to pay, it was difficult to get the waitress's attention as she was busy talking to a regular customer. Another waitress came over, asked us what we had had & added up the total on a piece of paper. Not too crazy about that system as you cannot be sure the bill will be accurate. All in all, an ok experience if you want authentic Viennese food at a relatively low price.

“Cafe Raimund, Vienna, not to be repeated experience”
Reviewed 10 October 2013

The waitress was ill prepared to be pleasant, the service was slow and scornful, the Gruner Veltliner wine was undrinkable and none of us will darken its doors again.
