Expensive but if you want to feel like an Austrian in Vienna ( let's say Wien- you know "authentic") go to Helmut and his crew. Helmut could charge much more and his restaurant still would be filled up with guests every day. Why ? Simple...More

As good as any top German restaurant anywhere. My third trip as great as previous vists. Go there for something different or familiar, a very welcome ethnic option to a somewhat trite local dining scene

Helmut (chef) has been indulging their guests since many years until August 31st 2017. Time has come to retire and transfer the restaurant to young and engaged people, Nicole and Dieter who get a new approach to manage the restaurant with ideas. I thank all friends, guests and relatives for their support. My main goals have always been: make guests feel at home, let them enjoy fine food and make them having a good time. This will be also the intention of Nicole and Dieter from Germany. We are located in the Courtyard of the Royal Palm Square. Every 2nd Saturday of the month is an event: German-Night with a big buffet.
