We visited on a Monday night (two adults and two teenage children) and were pleased to have made a reservation as it was busy. The member of staff who greeted us spoke excellent english. An excellent choice on the menu and good value. A very Bohemian atmosphere. The food was excellent and good value. Excellent service from all the staff who made a great effort with our poor German. We had clear beef soup with pancake noodles to start followed by a variety including black pudding (blood sausage), wiener schnitzel and ravioli. No space for a desert! I would recommend this restaurant and would return if lucky enough to be in Vienna again.

I searched for the best Wienerschnitzel in Vienna and I found it, after a long walk from Praterstern, on a Sunday afternoon!
Hippie-bohemian atmosphere. Don't look for tablecloth nor napkins & silverware, it's "do it yourself". I'm sure, if you ask, they will probably let you knife-carve your name on the table. But let them serve you a perfect schnitzel, overflowing from the dish. With a smile.
You'll befriend locals, bourgeois couples, families with screaming kids and old gentlemen with the Papillon knot. That is the real thing. Ask them for the round table by the piano, you'll have a prime view into the kitchen where the women work fast, sweat and smile. We'll return to Vienna & return to the Nordpol3. And the price is right.

Mix of Czech, Bohemian and Viennese cuisine. Very helpful service - they take a lot of care in talking you through your options and what is best for you! Must visit!

We were recommended to this restaurant by a few locals we met. We were warned it was basic and very busy being a firm favorite with locals. Was a bit of a walk and right out of the tourist and central areas. We were seated at the end of a long table and Valentine took time to go through all the local specialities with us. My wife had the mushroom ravioli in burnt sage butter and I had the wild boat sausage with gnocchi and lentils. Both were hearty and delicious. For desert we had powidltascher (little pockets filled with purée plum and covered with ground hazelnuts in burnt butter) - too die for. In spite of the restaurant being full, the service from Valentine was excellent. If you want good local Austrian food and don't mind roughing it with the locals, would highly recommend it.

This place is way out of the way. It may be worth the trip however if you want an authentic local restaurant experience. The decor is amazing. Covered with local art and funky objects. Beer was cheap and good. The food was amazing - we had the schnitzel and roast pork.
