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!

The schnitzel is delicious, but I had a roasted pigling that was nice and crispy on the outside and sweet and tender inside. As a dessert an orange sorbet. Good beer and an immense choice of snaps.

We ate dinner at this restaurant at the recommendation of friends who also visited Austria previously. The service, food and atmosphere were very nice. Authentic Austrian food in a very good central location. Price was comparable to other restaurants in the area.

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.
