This is a gem of a restaurant. Good traditional Austrian dishes served in a smoke free atmosphere leads to the place being constantly full. This was in fact the first smoke free restaurant in Vienna and long before the government made attempts to regulate it. Midday meals are to be had for Euro 6.90 and Tuesday is always schnitzel day,... More

Our local, and a regular spot to take visiting friends and family, we are consistently impressed with the atmosphere, service, quality of the food and value for money. It's always bustling - even on a Tuesday night (!) - so recommendations are recommended. If you visit in November call in advance and reserve "martini-Gansl" (roast goose) otherwise the schnitzel and... More

Visited this restaurant after a recommendation by a local. We arrived at 8pm on a Wednesday evening with no reservation and the restaurant was packed with locals. The owner managed to get us a table, but asked us if we could share with another diner, this was fine with us. The food was out of this world, and the atmosphere... More

Had a business dinner with a few colleagues. Glad we had a reservation as after 8 p.m. the place got really crowded. Was not aware of its historical touch and that it once was a hangout from Qualtinger, the famous Austrian actor. The food was delicious and served by Hofrat Walter himself - quite a cheeky one but still very... More

Arriving in Vienna after a drive from Plitvice in Croatia we were looking for a traditional Austrian experience and we were not disappointed. In a restaurant like Winkler you find the traditional wholesome Austrian cuisine matched by friendly, helpful service and some tasty Austrian beers. Would certainly recommend it if you want to experience Austrian food in a restaurant frequented... More

We snuck in here with no reservation on a rainy Friday night and consider ourselves blessed. Luckily grabbed the last table. What a charming tavern with eclectic décor. I absolutely loved it. Brimming with locals, it is clearly a favourite and one visit is all that's needed to see why. The food was delicious, all very flavourful and authentic. Would... More

This is an original Viennese 'beisl', a small tavern. Small menu but everything nicely prepared. Good wine. Great atmosphere. Go there if you want a relaxed night out with a couple of friends, good food and a reasonable check at the end.

This is a lovely little local place. Food adequate, green salad was limp but dressing fine, and the spinach dumplings had a good filling but way too much pastry. Worth a visit but do not set your expectations high for the food.

Seasonal specialities and all those dishes that need to be on a Viennese menu, you'll get it there in a very authentic atmosphere. I've been to Winkler's several times, with and without reservation. I've not been sent away a single time, although I'd strongly recommend a reservation. The menu ist only available in German but all waitresses will assist you... More

My friend and I, finding us in Wien for work asked at the hotel a suggestion close by..so the first night we went there and it was very good. The second night of our stay, our boss decided we should try this typical Austrian restaurant, and we had the nice chance to meet Mr.Winkler, the restaurant'owner. He was very funny... More
