Went to this restaurant upon the suggestion of our hotel. It was fabulous for travelers wanting to try local cuisine in a lovely atmosphere. The service and attention to us was wonderful. We are very limited in our German language skills however it did not impede ordering as they have main course English menu. The history of the restaurant is... More

Visite there with friends after a gap of 3 years. Everything just as perfect as before. Ambience, service, quality of food all terrific. No more expressive than most restaurants in the city centre and definitely of a higher quality. I think we had a new waiter ( his name was Patrick) and he was really welcoming and friendly, even though... More

If you could only have one restaurant by which to remember a visit to Vienna, The White Chimneysweep is the perfect choice. The restaurant's name in German is Zum weißen Rauchfangkehrer, and even though its storybook decor may seem a bit touristy at first, this is a truly Austrian restaurant, with a loyal local clientele, and an energetic staff that...

I found this place on trip advisor. This is definitely an Austrian Restaurant. Its name is Zum Weissen Rauchfangkehrer. From the first minute we entered to when we left the service was impeccable. The waiter recommended, actually insisted, that we try a venison sausage starter that we shared. It was very good. For the main course we had Ox entrecote... More

My wife wanted to try the boiled beef, a traditional Austrian specialty, and our hotel recommended this place. Wow! What a hit. The boiled beef was excellent, as was the pan fried Viennese Schnitzel. Both were tender and cooked to perfection. Great atmosphere, attentive service, and live piano music made this a night to remember. Highly recommended!

Five nights in this beautiful city included two meals at this great restaurant. Traditional with a modern touch. Food and ambience is excellent and the waitstaff made me so very comfortable dining solo the first evening that I immediately booked for the next night when my friends arrived. Don't miss it!

Staying in Inner City

Neighbourhood Profile
Inner City
In Vienna's best-known district, pedestrian boulevards Kärntner Strasse and Graben connect you with landmarks such as the Wiener Staatsoper (Vienna State Opera), Vienna’s iconic Stephansdom (St. Stephen’s Cathedral) and the vast compound of Hofburg, the Habsburgs’ former Imperial Palace. Peek down side streets such as Annagasse and Weihburggasse, and Graben’s Seilergasse and Habsburggasse, to get a feel for the centre. The Imperial Apartments and the refreshingly demystifying Sissi Museum are must-dos at Hofburg. Spacious squares such as Am Hof and Freyung often host beautiful seasonal and antiques markets.
