The food and service were excellent. The restaurant was recommended by a friend who had travelled a month prior and we had very similar experiences. The staff spoke very good English and helped explain everything on the menu.

Typical Austrian dishes, excellently prepared and good quality ingredients, tastes like all very fresh ingredients. Good to eat with friends or as a couple. Nice staff. Can't leave Vienna without having had dinner in a place like this.
