Description: Most Welcome! To the "six legged lion inn", nowadays turned into a well known restaurant, the "Witwe Bolte". The old fashioned restaurant is situated in the famous Spittelberg district. The baroque building carries the inscription "Durch dieses Tor im Bogen ist Kaiser Josef II geflogen, 1778" which translates to ,,through this archway emperor Josef II was thrown out", a remainder of one of his infamous and notorious visits to the pub. Please enjoy our delicious Austrian specialities, our seasonal delicacies and our vegetarian viands. Some declare a gourmet heaven, where you can feel the historic atmosphere of the Spittelberg area while sitting calmly in our wonderful and well kept garden or inside in one of our rustic parlors and cozy snuggeries. A glass of our carefully selected red and white wines from all important Austrian wine regions completes every dinner and makes it an unforgettable experience. Bolte's restaurant The atmosphere in our main dining area can be described as typically viennese, with comfortably cushioned wooden chairs and benches, small intimate tables and lush decorated walls. Life is reduced to the simple joy of delicious food like a juicy Schweinsbraten (pork roast) or the famous Wiener Schnitzel (Viennese escalope), served with a glass of good wine from the Wachau region. You can experience our affection for detail in our various snuggeries. Please choose between the Lehrer Lampel Stube (schoolmaster Lampel parlor), the Rabenstube (raven parlor) or the Schneiderstube (dressmaker parlor), each referring to a character of the famous author Wilhelm Busch, as well as the Wilhelm Busch Stuberl

We did had one our dinner in this restaurant and were not impressed. Although food is quite good - forelle, gulasch (but overpriced - 4.6 Eur for green salad, 1.9 for a tiny snack served while your order is being cooked although never ordered - in other restaurants served as a compliment), location on the lively nice narrow street is charming, service is fast but unpleasant, atmosphere is not friendly or cosy.

Nice patio setting in Spittelberg, but the food was only average. Service indifferent. The setting made the meal.

This restaurant is a bit more expensive than the usual fare but the food is like nowhere else. We went there 2 years ago and returned because we loved our experience there. They have also a very nice backyard that opens onto a small pedestrian alley. The interior of the restaurant is ordinary and nothing special but this is all about the food and garden.

Tree canopied Patio faces Spittlegasse, namesake of Spittleberg neighborhood, and menu options include updated Viennese favorites (beef) and a well presented trout. First course Pork Aspic was a timbale of meat with accompaniments. The simple salad was lettuce, cucumbers and potato salad vinaigrette ... Surprisingly good. Very casual and service was attentive.
