To bring a gin and tonic = ask for it 3-4 times, wait 15-20min. I had 4 gin and tonics, each and every time the same procedure. I don't mind asking for it several times, I just mind waiting. One colleague asked for some extra toast, the waiter simply took it from another colleague of ours and put it in... More

Plachutta is in general a great place to eat, but this time I wanted to try the Grunspan location. It did not disappoint me. Great tafelspitz.

If you want to enjoy a more delightful atmosphere than in the very centrally located Plachutta, you might want to take the drive outside to Ottakring for this Location. The interior is nice - fireplace in winter, "Gastgarten" (outdoor tables) in summer. Be aware that to be seated close to the windows in winter is chilly. Plachutta's meals are best... More

We have visited this place many times. The food is consistently very good, the beer choices excellent and they have an expansive wine list . Unfortunately, they need to have some serious talks with some of their staff and focus on human resource management. Retrain them or get new waiters that treat customers with courtesy rather than arrogance and attitude.

This was not the first time, we have visited this place with similar experience. I like sunny beer gardens thats why we have returned. The beef tartar was very good, the soup salty. The wiener schnitzel ok, the potato salad just ok(there are much better ones in the city). The greatest disappointment regarding food was the Kaiserschmarrn. This typical austrian... More

Stopped off here on the way to the Kuffner Observatory. It is easily reached from the station via the 46B bus - which stops directly outside. The interior of the place is really nice and in a traditional style. There is plenty of tables outside which suited the weather nicely. The restaurant is very popular and quite rightly. The service... More

I met some Austrian friends of mine and they recommended this place. I was very pleased. It is unfortunately a bit far from the center of town so you'll need to spend some time getting out there. You travel west on the U3 to get to Ottakring. Once there you'll need to travel even further west on foot (about 10min... More

The Plachutta restaurants are a local favourite for classic comfort food that always hits the spot. The garden at this location is particularly appealing with leafy borders and umbrellas for shade. Service was quick and efficient, the food was freshly prepared and tasty. Truly an ideal way to enjoy time with family and friends on a lazy weekend. I'd take... More

Staying in Ottakring

Neighbourhood Profile
The production site of popular Ottakringer beer brews up an exciting mix of working and middle class suburbs, Balkanese immigrant lifestyles, and lush patches of hilly woodland. The recently gentrified area around Yppenplatz and Brunnenmarkt boasts hip cafés and bars next to South East European delicacies at Brunnenmarkt street market. The dynamics of Ottakring become most apparent at its vibrant high street Ottakringer Strasse. At the top end you can feast on wine and local food in Austria’s oldest wine tavern 10er Marie. The wines are from the tavern’s own urban vineyards. Before you head upwards, make sure you pay a visit to the historic courtyards between Lerchenfelder Gürtel and Hippgasse. When locals visit Ottakring’s hilly green outskirts on the weekends they either climb up 31 meters of Jubiläumswarte viewing tower on Gallitzinberg, have a succulent Wiener Schnitzel at Villa Aurora, or reward their hiking exertions around Wilhelminenberg with a drink and a view from Wilhelminenberg Palace (now a hotel and restaurant).
