We just happened on this restaurant and so enjoyed it! The service and food were fine, but what we really enjoyed was the quiet/relaxed atmosphere and soft lighting after a busy day of walking around Vienna!

Our group had our lunch in this restaurant upon arrival in Vienna. The restaurant looks like an old barn (?) in a quaint village with decorative plates on the wall. We were all tired from the long trip and this was where our tour group...More

Went with an EF Tour group of High school students so the menu was set in advance. The Radish-Carrot salad in a mason jar was not popular with our group. Most was left on the table uneaten. I tried one or two bites and did...More

As is apparent from other reviews, this restaurant is popular with tour groups. Possibly as an individual diner I received more personal attention; but I was very pleased with the general service and the attention given by general manager Robert Kardos. My wife and I...More

In central Vienna the Kardos Restaurant invites you on an exciting culinary trip. Enter through the original Siebenbuergendoor to a world of Viennese charm, find a wealth of character inspired by Hungary, Austria, Slovenia and beyond. Here traditional artworks by Franz Zelezny, dating to 1912 hang on the walls, there one hundred year old flower patterned plates give authentic charm. The old-world meets the new in a fusion of wood, glass and light, a superb reflection of the Kardos family and their gastronomic history dating back more than 100 years. Austria, Hungary, Slovenia, Bohemia and the Balkans are represented on a varied menu which is a taste of home for many and a taste of foreign lands for others.
