We had been staying at the Park Hotel and decided to try it’s restaurant for lunch. We were pleasantly surprised. Didn’t have loads but the goulash with bread dumplings were terrific. The other members of our team all went for soups and gave a big...thumbs up. We had excellent Reisling to wash it down at a very reasonable price. Overall a nice time hear .. if I stayed here at the Hotel would most certainly use again.More

We have been living in Vienna for a year with many, many meals out. Our lunch today was one of the best. If I had read reviews, we might never have stopped here after our visit to the gardens and what a loss that would...have been. We ordered the Friday lunch special for a modest 9 Euro 50 and it was spectacular- salmon filet, sweet potato mash and delicious caramelized vegetables. The service was friendly and prompt and the outside table had lovely linens and quality utensils - a perfect meal!More

My wife and I recently stopped for a bite at this cafe inside the compound of Schoenbrunn Palace in Vienna. We were served by a waitress named Marina . She was impatient, rude and incompetent. She could not properly answer questions we had on the...menu. We ended up receiving food that we didn’t care for . When she refused to take away my wife’s plate , we called to speak to the manager. Although he was polite , he also refused to take away my wife’s plate. We were disgusted by their attitude and most definitely will not return. It is a big shame that this kind of poor service exists in such a beautiful location.More

The three of us dropped in for a quick snack after visiting the very impressive castle. Immaculate service & very pleasant surroundings made it a pleasant afternoon to indulge in some Austrian specialties after the visit.

We ate here twice, and satisfied both times. It's in the same building as the ticketing office. We were surprised that prices were pretty typical for the Vienna area and not inflated due to the palace location. Seating is limited, but we fortunately found a...table both times. Food quality was good, but not great. Service is also pretty quick.More

Serves all the usual traditional Austrian dishes at reasonable prices for quite large portions. Nice clean place with tasty food. Coffee and cakes are expensive but around the norm for tourist attractions

We visited the cafe while waiting to enter the Palace. The Sachertorte was delicious and the service excellent - friendly and attentive.

This cafe in the forecourt of Schonbrunner Palace serves the most wonderful cakes and delicious coffee, all at reasonable prices. When you see the cakes I guarantee that you will be spoilt for choice!! The staff are friendly and efficient and they speak fluent English....The toilets are downstairs and are free!More

Vienna offers many fine spots for strudel and coffee, and quite a few better than here, but they don't offer what Schonbrunner Schlosscafe does -- an opportunity to taste fine strudel (and other pastries) and solid Viennese coffee right where the royals partook them. When...visiting the palace, this is a must unless the crowds keep you away.More
