We were recommended to this restaurant and were not disappointed. We wanted to sample two Austrian dishes - Wiener schnitzel and Tafelspitz. Both were excellent and reasonably priced compared to other restaurants serving the same. Plachutta has a number of restaurants in Vienna, but this review only deals with their restaurant called "Gasthaus zur Opera" on Wallfischgasse, two minutes' walk from the State Opera House. This restaurant has outside seating (which is under cover if it rains), or spacious seating inside. I recommend that you book in advance as they are popular and were busy on the two weekend lunchtimes when we visited. Dress is smart casual and there is a relaxed, informal atmosphere. Portions of the above two dishes were generous - one portion of Tafelspitz was enough for both my wife and myself and the restaurant was perfectly happy for us to share it. The service was good too. I would happily return there on a subsequent visit to Vienna.

An ugly, very ugly welcome, despite a reservation. The kind of welcome that aims at making you feel that you are very lucky to even have the right to eat there - see what I mean? Don't go. There are great Wiener schnitzel elsewhere in Vienna. And great people and service too. This is no more than a pretentious touristic hole.

Visited on a Monday evening - it was very busy but despite this we were quickly found a table and the service was first class throughout the evening. The atmosphere was good, the menu gave a good choice and the food was tasty and well prepared. Welcoming, helpful and friendly staff. We would recommend.

For our first night in Vienna, we went to the Opera and needed somewhere for a light dinner afterwards. This Plachutta is part of a chain that offers Viennese cuisine. It was perfect for a light post opera dinner. Even at 10 PM it was busy with an animated group - and a lot of Viennese. For a light meal we had the asparagus salad and carpaccio of beef. I enjoyed a local unfiltered draft beer which was excellent. If we go to the opera again we'll go back. As a bonus Plachutta offers outdoor seating with heaters.
