“Authentic cuisine”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 August 2014 via mobile

Arrived there with family and were seated right away eventhough we hadn't made a reservation. Food was tradititional and delicious. The place is cosy and charming. Staff were a bit overwhelmed though. Still, a restaurant worthwile visiting!

“The best wiener schnitzel in Vienna!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014 via mobile

It was the best restaurant we went to out of 5 or 6 in the area during our stay in Vienna. The food was the tastier even though it's a bit more pricy than other restaurants in the area. The service was very good and the surroundings very nice. Highly recommended.

“REALLY LARGE SCHNITZEL”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 11 August 2014 via mobile

I was there for third time after many years with my two teenager children and a friendly couple. We did not have a reservation but it was about 16:00 and it was easy to find a table for 5. We ordered 3 schnitzel and 2 chicken schnitzel a salad and a portion of potatoes and 2 soft drinks and 2 bottles of water and paid about 100 euro. The quality was very good and the service and the advertisement of having the best schnitzel in Vienna seems to make money.
If it is the best why doesn 't it have many local clients?
If you have time ask local people were they go for good schnitzel otherwise go to figlmueller and you get a big schnitzel .
Last notice this time they didn't serve any kind of known soft drinks at all and it is the first time I 've been in a restaurant which doesn't serve a cola or a sprite of any brand.

“Quick and tasty schnitzel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2014

A taxi driver on the way from the train station to our hotel described this as the best place in Vienna to eat schnitzel. He wasn't wrong. There is a great buzz to the place, the food arrived quickly and it was delicious. We ordered one schnitzel each, but they could easily fill two people. Along with two drinks, it came to €30.

“It was awesome!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 August 2014

As I read the reviews here on tripadvisor, I was really shocked how bad they are. We booked for the Backerstrasse a table in advance (REALLY NEEDED!) and had a lovely table in the cellar. The food was very amazing (try the goat cheese in bacon as appetizer). Our waiter was really lovely. I read, that the services was really bad, so maybe it was at the other restaurant. I really recommend going there, but don't make the fault and queue outside the restaurant. As we arrived, there was a couple standing in 1. place in the queue. They got the table beside us, 90 minutes later...
