Food was delectable and service was impeccable. Pricey dining experience, but that is expected at a venue like this. Worth a visit for an occasion or special night out.

My partner had seared tuna with... More

A really nice atmosphere and an adequate range of dishes to chose from. The Wiener Schnitzel are really good. The waiters are really friendly. The location is great too. Not far from the shopping street and the old town of Vienna.

This restaurant is worth hunting out in its quiet location in a small alley. Probably best to book as we were unable to get a table on the Saturday night but they managed to fit us in the following night. Service, food and wine all excellent. Great atmosphere and setting.

I found this restaurant on TripAdvisor as I was visiting Vienna. I booked a table and was so glad that I had as it's a very popular restaurant. Lovely atmosphere and excellent staff, the menu isn't huge, which I think is good as you know the food is freshly prepared, but plenty of choice. We started with pumpkin soup, my... More

I had the liver, which was wonderful. It was so tender. The wait staff are friendly and the wine selection is large. You may wish to reserve a table since it is a busy restaurant. Overall, it is worth the visit. Good food for a good price.

Thank Bill R
