What a splendid restaurant! The food is traditional and Viennese. I particularly recommend the Goulash! The service (Ludwig and Raphael) was friendly, polite and discreet and the dinning room, both elegant and comfortable. We will return.

I have no idea how this place celebrated their 50 year in business in 2013, but the food is too salty, and very average at best! I ordered the lamb steak, which was swimming in way too salty sauce! It was the only tourist trap open on a Sunday, so I had little choice.

The service was quite good, and our food was all right except for a really awful salad dressing which may have been a herb we weren't familiar with. My daughter described as bad breath, but I thought it was more diaper-flavored... I really think it was a herb. This is a quaint old place and we were surrounded by locals.... More

This is a NON SMOKING restaurant. We searched locally and all the others were filled with smoke. So the food and ambience became less important. However, make of this what you will, but the food was good (we had the burger which was cooked perfectly by Australian standards but raw by British standards) and ok value. They were turning German... More

OK. Did what I wanted it to do but only just. Looked ok from outside. Food fine and I guess one could do a lot worse if selecting a place at random

As we couldn't find free place nearby, choosed this place but I wouldn't recommend. Service is not nice at all, the schnitzel was not a good value. The only positive thing was that there was draught beer.

It was getting late on our first night in Vienna and we were struggling to find somewhere to eat with a table for 5. This looked ok and we were quickly seated downstairs. The service wasn't bad although the waiter managed to get the different glasses of white wine the wrong way round. The food was ok if basic and... More

Bad service. No attension from the servant. Gin tonic was awfull. Austrian gin made in the backyard. Toilets was not clean And the smell was like a festival toilet. There is a lot Of other good restaurants in Vienna, so do not border to waste time and money at this place.

Though the atmosphere was incredibly Austrian in its frivolity, which is something you either love or hate (I don't really like it that much), the staff showed incredible hospitality and the service was quick and nice. We were allowed to stay there for quite some time even though we only ordered some drinks to load up from a long day... More

I think that I ate here on my previous visit 20 years ago? Only this time I was travelling alone. With a total of 9 we were seated downstairs. This time I was seated in the café area. I am saddened to read that some visitors were not impressed at the service. Personally I could not fault it. My waiter... More
