I ordered a dish from the "weekly special" menu, and it was zucchini and pumpkin breaded in egg, with spaghetti in tomato sauce. It was too much egg, and the egg fell apart from the vegetables. There were egg shells left behind. Also, the spaghettini...More

We had a business dinner there and really enjoyed the food. They serve traditional Austrian cuisine; good authentic stuff. Friendly staff that spoke English. Also, it is located close to the belvedere castle, and not a tourist trap.

largest street market. Many bohemian types have found
their way to Wieden: meet them in trendy cafés and
