While not the prettiest, nicest or most chic restaurant in Vienna, this place has some of the best schnitzel in town without all the tourist overkill and price of Figlemuller or Plachuta. The schnitzel is hardy, gamey and bursting with flavor and even the accompanying traditional potato salad is substantial and delicious. These guys get everything right from the ratty interior, to the grumpy wait staff, to the huge tankards of good Austrian beer. This is not a place for the fainthearted, but if you are in the mood for a serious schnitzel meal there is nowhere better.

Went there with 2 work colleagues. when we got in, I asked for a table for 3 and was told to go and find one myself. This was a bit strange but we managed to get a table....

Service was a bit slow as they were very busy. However, once the staff took the order everything got out really quick.
We all go the Schnitzel which was huge and pretty good. It is hard to say it but 3 grown men, we could have gone with only 2 orders of the Schnitzel. Keep in mind the portions are very large!!

Given the portion size, the value is hard to bit. between the 3 of us, we paid 40 Euro (before tip) for the food and beer.
I highly recommend

Ate here following the reviews on trip advisor. Massive portions (maybe skip a meal before coming) served quickly and by friendly staff. Menu is in german but the staff are able to assist with the translation (or perhaps just roll the dice for a surprise meal). Schnitty was between ?6 and ?12 depending on the accompaniment. Would recommend.

This place is the nuts!!! We were recommended it for the scale of the portions. We were still surprised and failed to finish our schnitzels! Amazing. The waiter was hilarious, literally shouting at us. At the end he just said four schnitzels two chips forty euros very good price my lady baby girl... hilarious... great food. Great place. Don't expect a relaxing atmosphere though but a great time!

Great restaurant. Friendly ambience and cool stuff. Probably the best schnitzel in Wien! And the biggest one! Must visit.
