“Go for it!”
Reviewed 15 May 2014 via mobile

We ate here twice on the recommendation of our hotel and thoroughly enjoyed it. The atmosphere is very traditional and I suspect that the decor has changed little for several years. This added to its authenticity. Several of the dishes may be unfamiliar to British palates but don't let this put you off. My husband enjoyed his calves lung and dumplings whilst I similarly enjoyed the boiled veal. Puddings were served in large and delicious portions. My pancakes with apricot jam were fantastic whilst my husband similarly enjoyed his chocolate mousse with orange sorbet. Service was very pleasant and a bottle of Austrian wine excellent. Enjoy!

“Authentic cuisine”
Reviewed 22 February 2014 via mobile

We were recommended to this restaurant by our hotel and we were not disappointed. Although the street it's in is not the smartest, don't be put off. The welcome we received from the staff was very warm. It's always good to see locals eating at a restaurant and the food reflected this. Good, simple Austrian cuisine. Well cooked and very tasty. Good value for money.

“Traditional Austrian Food”
Reviewed 1 January 2014

Short walk from our Hotel Rathaus Wein & Design. All four of us went for the Wiener schnitzel and potato salad - good sized portions and very tasty. The service was very good and friendly. Reasonably priced wine. And of course finished with a delicious Apple Strudel.

North of Ringstrasse the restaurants are often more for locals than tourists.
This is one of those which serves traditional Austrian food of very good quality.
We think this restaurant is very good value for money and not expensive at all.
Even though we were obviously tourists we were welcome immediately. We were very happy with the non-smoking rooms.
Very friendly, helpful and swift service.
The consomme with pancakes or dumplings is lovely and for main course fish, steak, schnitzel and a ravioli like dumpling with meat or vegetable filling were excellent.
Our lady host was the cornerstone of a very good two nights cuisine and her guidance through the menu and Austrian winelist was superb. The wines selected were very good.
On our second visit we arrived unbooked at 9.45 on a Sunday night and were clearly not a problem.
Good luck Prinz Fredinand!

“Not cheap but good”
Reviewed 25 February 2013

Wiener schnitzel! Well you have to in Vienna don't you? Well made here, although the slice of meat in the batter was fairly thin. the two pieces filled the plate. Tasty dide dishes. It was a quiet, cold February night in Vienna and by the end we were on our own. Food, wine and local beer were all good. Helpful waitress with good English. Nice atmosphere. What Brits might call a "Gastropub" feel. With bits and pieces around 20 Euros each.
