We asked our hotel for a restaurant that provided medium priced local cuisine. This place really delivered. Simple dishes with high quality ingredients, perfectly prepared. The local mushrooms sautéed with spinach and the Vienna schnitzel were great. Very helpful friendly service. Loved it!

For our mains, we had an excellent Milchlamm with Baerlauchgnocchi and an equally excellent Zwiebelrostbraten. Dessert was another triumph - Mohnsouffle with...More

This restaurant is typical of a viennese local restaurant; the food is delicious (Austrian delicious asparagus cooked in various different ways, good cooked pork and the apple strudel and the raspberry strudel are simply delicious) and the service is helpful once you smile at them.

Old University Quarter
North of St. Stephen’s Cathedral, Vienna suddenly
turns small, winding and medieval, opening up to
legendary places such as the Basilisk sculpture at
Schönlaterngasse, as well as glamorous baroque
façades, courtyards and churches. Take 45 minutes for
a casual stroll through Bäckerstrasse,
Sonnenfelsgasse, Köllnerhofgasse, Grashofgasse, and
Schönlaterngasse. This quarter is packed with stories
