“Very good choice”
Reviewed 3 July 2014

We learnd about this restaurant on a travel guide. It is located on a small street that looks like an alley.
We chose a table outside the restaurant, right on this narrow street.
It was quite late for lunch, over 3 pm, on a holiday but we were very gently served by the kind lady that was taking care of outside tables.
Tipical austrian food was good with big size portions. The pretzels worth their fame and went very nicely with the beer while waiting food.
I will certainly return on a next trip to Vienna.

“Hidden jewel in Vienna”
Reviewed 19 June 2014

My husband and I, along with a friend, actually stumbled upon this restaurant while searching for places to eat in Vienna. What a find!! We were greeted warmly, seated immediately, and given exquisite service throughout our meal. Our waitress provided perfect recommendations, was neither neglectful nor intrusive, and also gave a bit of history about the food, wine, and location. The food? Incredible. Start with warm, perfect pretzels and chilled Riesling Move on to the house goulash, specialty lentil dish (with the most incredible ham ever) or spaetzle with cheese and herbs. Finish? Don't go for the usual streudel....try the house special. Warm, delicious....unlike any we have ever had. Finish it off with some schnapps, also made on the premises. A wonderful, wonderful meal....in every way!

“Fantastic Dinner on First Night In Vienna”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

My wife and I had just arrived in Vienna and this restaurant was a recommendation from a local as we asked for traditional Austrian food -- and what a find it was. We were seated in the dimly lit cellar for dinner and served a beef broth soup; beef, potatoes and carrots for dinner; and apple strudel for dessert. Everything was delicious! Even the pretzel that was served as an appetizer was scrumptious, as was the red wine that is specially made for this restaurant. Our waitress, a lady from Serbia who spoke five or more languages, made our dining experience even better with her explanations about the cellar, the food, and the countries to the south of Austria. Overall, my wife and I would highly recommend this restaurant to anyone wishing to experience authentic Austrian dining. If we go back to Vienna, we will absolutely go back to this restaurant. It was awesome.

“Absolutely wonderful experience!”
Reviewed 17 June 2014

This building in the heart of downtown Vienna was first mentioned in the 1500s so when our Viennese friend led us into the restaurant, then down, down and down into the cellar, we were blown away! The low curved ceilings, the painted walls, the old eclectic wall-hangings! She had reserved a specific table weeks ahead - it was in the nook of the original baker's oven! It was so unique and charming, that we almost didn't even care if the food was good. But, I must say, the food was amazing! Naturally, I had the schnitzel - it was the size of my plate! My husband had a beef dish that was delicious and our friend had a vegetarian dish that was so incredibly tasty. Our waiter was funny - very droll and sarcastic but he was attentive and good-humoured, so we didn't feel like 'Oh tourists!' Original and very unique. Loved it.

“A hidden jewel for local food”
Reviewed 9 June 2014

Enjoyed a great lunch here while touring the city center. Tried the wiener schnitzel and loved it! Very good service and you get the feeling of an old and traditional place, where they take pride in what they serve.
