I don't know if they were having an "off" night or what, but I had a very different experience at this restaurant. We arrived on time, with a reservation, and asked to sit outside. The waiter outside was very rude and insisted that if it started raining we would have to leave. The patio was packed, so we had to... More

We went on a Saturday evening. The waiter was surprised that we would want a non smoking table, and after he had shown us a table outside and explaine dthat we should not be bothered by people smoking around us, he pretty much ignored us. We did manage to get the attention of another waiter and were eventually served, the... More

This wonderful Austrian bistro serves many more outside in a large pedestrian courtyard than inside in the warm. We arrived on a rainy super cold night in May not realizing that there would be no available seating. Rather than turning the two of us away, they had us wait for two (of a table of 8) finish and allowed us... More

We sat outside at this restaurant and had some good Austrian food. My goulash was very tasty with a huge dumpling served alongside (and this was the small sized portion). My husband's roast chicken and rice did not look quite as good, but perhaps that's because of what he chose to order - it was roast chicken and rice. Nice... More

A very crowed place for a reason. Great food and service in a lovely and traditional atmosphere. We didn't get a table for 2 but they asked if we could share which worked perfectly and even ended up in a nice conversation

This place was recommended and reviews looked good. We enjoyed food in most of Austrian restaurants and cafes during this trip. Zum fidelen Affen was an exception. Rather average food along with rude hostess and waiter didn't impress us.

Had a nice dinner there. Service was excellent even though the place was full. The chicken was superb, and the char was excellent though small. The salad was fresh and tasty. Would come back for sure.

We were looking for somewhere without a reservation and had a local recommendation that didn't disappoint. The waiter staff couldn't be more friendly supplying us with drink and keeping us updated, in excellent English, on when a table would come free. When it did the food was excellent, very traditional yet refined Austrian fare. I would heartily recommend but urge... More

We hadn't booked and had to wait 15 minutes to be seated so I would definitely recommend booking in advance. Fair warning, parties of 4 or less will likely be asked to share a table with another group - we found it entertaining to be sat next to different people but some people might find it a bit odd. The... More
