“Well deserved reputation...”
Reviewed 29 July 2014

Cafe Landtmann has a reputation based on years good food and service in the fashion of a landmark Vienna Cafe and being a haunt of famous people over those years. I selected the sausages plate with 3 types of sausage, mustards and a side of pomme frites,the best I had in Vienna. Their special Lemmonade was amazing, excellent service in an outdoor venue directly across from performance venues.

“Not as good as they said”
Reviewed 25 July 2014

We visited the cafe after locals recommendation but for sure is not as good as they said. It is better to say that it doesn't offer anything special. There are a lot better cafes than Landtmann.

“Best Apfelstrudel (apple strudel)”
Reviewed 23 July 2014

We literally stumbled upon this place because we were walking around the city and needed to stop somewhere for a quick snack and to give our feet a rest. My husband and friend both had a beer and we all shared the apfelstrudel. It was AMAZING or rather "supa"! It was moist, sweet, and fresh. I've had apple strudel before in Vienna and it was dry and stale at cafe sacher of all places. This was definitely the best strudel.

“Great Schnitzel”
Reviewed 21 July 2014

It is located just in front of the city hall. It is a very big restaurant with nice indoor and very beautiful view for outdoor seats.
Professional staffs and very good service. We have tried Schnitzel which was great. Also they have prepared a special plain pasta for my daughter out of menu which also was great.
They have charged some items like extra mustard & ketchup for 1.50 Euro which is not acceptable for such a like elegant restaurant.
The prices over all is not so high and our bill for 3 person plus my little daughter was 100 euro include drinks.

We wanted to check out this trendy cafe and enjoy the location and nice weather. Service was very good and lunch was tasty. We enjoyed the Caesar salad with shrimp, vegetable soup and for dessert their famous apple strudel and Melange coffee.
