By no means the biggest you can get in Vienna but still a fair old size. And more importantly nicely cooked and very enjoyable
Lovely traditional place with friendly attentive service. Non Schnitzel food emerging.. from the kitchen looked really good as well. Starters were particularly good. Would definitely come back here again

Limited time in Vienna; wanted nothing more than to have wienerschnitzel. Great wienerschnitzel. So glad we listened to my hotel's concierge and so happy they got us in last minute. This place was the best that I had the whole trip. Tender and succulent, big portion, crisp and clean. I went back two nights in A row! What can I say, when in Vienna...

Side potato salad was equally delicious. Service was friendly and warm. I highly recommend Ofenloch. My entire table of hardened "critics" loved it. Even the couple from Milan sitting next to us thought it was outstanding!

We ate here the first evening we were in Vienna - our daughter suggested it - when we called they were fully booked inside, but offered us an outside table. It was a very mild evening and it was quite pleasant to sit outside in the alley street and listen to the sound of the horse drawn carriages clip clop in the distance and imagine yourself traveling back in time. The outside seats have blankets to help keep you warm. The staff was extremely friendly and the service was prompt. The food was delicious and fresh. I ordered fried chicken (basically chicken schnitzel) which was served on a bed of popped corn to keep it crispy! My husband had the wienerschnitzel. Both excellent. The only downside was that guests are allowed to smoke outside and if you happen to be seated near a table with smokers, you might find it a bit unpleasant if you are used to smoke-free dining.

Thank you very much for your high rating and your detailed review. We are happy that you enjoyed your outside table, but we are very sorry about the smokers problem...although we could not change it. The only thing you could have done is to ask the smokers to stop smoking during eating your dinner.

We are looking forward to your next visit - maybe in an inside room where smoking ist strictly forbidden.

Just arrived in Vienna , our apartment host recommend Restaurant Ofenloch to us for lunch. It was really a quaint and lovely place, lots of great options. The server was helpful and explained some great food options.

Wiener Schnitzel tasted crispy & juicy was really authentic and delicious.
Oxhead escargot was unique and nice. Caesar salad is refreshing and the bacon bits make it so scrumptious. Old-Viennese soup is nice and savoury especially on a very chilling day. Pumpkin soup is hearty and filling. Catfish was done well even though it is a cheap kind of fish. Kaiserschnitzel is tender and lovely. The Viennese roast beef is delicious and the temperature is done right. The dessert variations was absolutely mouth watering , its a perfect combination of sweet and salty, simply irresistible !!!!

With the amazing authentic Viennese food and exceptional service , I highly recommend everyone to visit this place.

We did not have a reservation and they were so good at squeezing us in and we were 4 people. I am so glad they did. We started with salads ( Leaf Salad & Sheep cheese wrapped in bacon) as we craved salad greens. We split 2 salads between the 4 of us. They were very generous salads and I could have made a meal out of one of them myself. They were very fresh and a beautiful blend of favors. We of course had to have the wiener schnitzel and one of us had the lamb. Again we could have shared. Our eyes were bigger than our appetites. It was absolutely delicious. We were recommended a very fine Austrian white wine to accompany the meal. The service was excellent. I can not recommend this restaurant enough for a taste of quality Austrian fair.
