“Great Desserts and hot chocolate”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Close to Michaelerplatz, Demel is a perfect place to have deserts. The sitting area is good but not great and some of the best tables are reserved for local regular customers, a mild distraction. We had Gulaschzuppe, perfect and Demel Hauswurzchen, so so except for the mustard which was delicious. Also, we had Eistee Zitron (Lemon ice tea) which was perfect. Next we had Beerenschnitte, Apfeltorte and another dessert that I cannot remember the name all were amazing. We also bought hot chocolate for home for slightly chilly evening and it was fabulous. Definite stop when in Vienna.

“Worth Going Once”
Reviewed 19 July 2014

Demel is a landmark pastry shop and restaurant in Vienna that is definitely worth going once for the experience. The old world atmosphere is charming and the pastry displays are extraordinary. Unfortunately the quality is not the best and it is very expensive. And, then there are the lines. My advice: Keep the order simple and small for the experience and find other places for quality.

“Rude Staff”
Reviewed 18 July 2014

My husband and our 2 sons 15 yrs old went here for for some sweet treats after touring the Palace. We stopped to view the open kitchen for a moment and one of the ladies working there rudely with attitude, pushed one of our sons out of the way so she could pass. We chalked that up to just rudeness but then we went upstairs to sit at a table to order and the waitress up there was just as harsh and rude. It made the experience not nice. The apple strudel was not the tastiest and more soggy than it should have been. We also ordered some ice cream drinks that were really good. We won't go back.

“Authentic Strudel”
Reviewed 18 July 2014 via mobile

The atmosphere and history of the place was fantastic and had been recommended by our Austrian Tour Guide. The strudel and coffee were the best.

“Superb pastry and awesome wine”
Reviewed 15 July 2014

I am a pastry lover and the cakes in Demel is very much awesome! We had a slice of fruit cake and a chocolate cake, together with some wine. The Schnitzer we order for the main course was average though.
Most of the staffs were very busy and had little time to attend to the customers though. The waitress who attended to us was very very friendly though!
