Our group had our lunch in this restaurant upon arrival in Vienna. The restaurant looks like an old barn (?) in a quaint village with decorative plates on the wall. We were all tired from the long trip and this was where our tour group...More

Went with an EF Tour group of High school students so the menu was set in advance. The Radish-Carrot salad in a mason jar was not popular with our group. Most was left on the table uneaten. I tried one or two bites and did...More

As is apparent from other reviews, this restaurant is popular with tour groups. Possibly as an individual diner I received more personal attention; but I was very pleased with the general service and the attention given by general manager Robert Kardos. My wife and I...More

Went here as a coordinator of a student tour group. Great cosy decor even though it's overdone stereotypical. Not bad if you want a different experience. All the students enjoyed their meals. They also met the needs of special diets. But it seems it was...More

Being here with a group of students, the place is fine, decorated in a tipical "Viennese style" with this beautiful wood and velvet chairs and bench. The food in comparison with the place is horrible, meat not well cooked, disgusting suops... and we also found...More

We recently visited Hungary and loved their food. The food at Kardos looked similar but tasted very different. The waiter was very nice and friendly - but very busy since he was the only staff member who served everyone in the restaurant during the evening.

I visited with several colleagues. All the food were delicious.. The wines we tried also were good local wines. The staff was helpful, and kind. The decoration is too much. Painful. :)

In central Vienna the Kardos Restaurant invites you on an exciting culinary trip. Enter through the original Siebenbuergendoor to a world of Viennese charm, find a wealth of character inspired by Hungary, Austria, Slovenia and beyond. Here traditional artworks by Franz Zelezny, dating to 1912 hang on the walls, there one hundred year old flower patterned plates give authentic charm. The old-world meets the new in a fusion of wood, glass and light, a superb reflection of the Kardos family and their gastronomic history dating back more than 100 years. Austria, Hungary, Slovenia, Bohemia and the Balkans are represented on a varied menu which is a taste of home for many and a taste of foreign lands for others.
