Terrible experience. I will not return and unless you're a German speaker I would not advise you to go there either. I visited because of other reviews praising this as an authentic Viennese inn. What a mistake! I ordered the daily lunch with soup. The...More

The owner is unpleasant and rude and shouts remarks in broken English at those who are not German, the food is terrible, and the bill was padded with bogus charges. I have been to over 100 countries, many quite a few times, and this may...More

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....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,...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...More
