Description: Residence of Imperial Pleasures. The Habsburg family resided in their summer residence, Schönbrunn Palace. from the mid 18th century onwards. In 1904 emperor Franz Josef declared the palace as his main residence. Following this great tradition, the Querfeld family named the cafe they established in best Viennese tradition, "Café Residenz". Our guests at the Café Residenz are served with imperial delicacies such as our coffee specialty, Maria Theresa, and even one of Franz Josef's favorite dishes, the Tafelspitz, a boiled filet of beef. You will also find the tradition recipe of Kaiserschmarrn, a shredded pancake made with raisins and sugar. The bakers to the crown, "Hofbackstube," are located in the stately vaults below the café; special apple strudel shows are held every hour. The facilities of the Café Restaurant Residenz are reserved for our non-smoking guests. If you wish to smoke you may do so on the terrace of our café.

The food is not good. I would not recommend.

The Frankfurter sausages are in fact Worldwide Breakfast sausages, bad presentation and bad taste, the waiting for a table is embarrassing while a lot of tables are empty, being "reserved".
The service is slow and not professional.
The taste of the food is not good but the prices are up, designed maybe for a 4stars restaurant, but it's a joke, being in fact lower in quality than other average restaurants in the world.

Very bad experience. Aggressive no vax waiter teasing the vaccination.The place was packed while half of the tables were kept empty apparently reserved but no one never came to sit there. Just avoid it!

We had lunch here after spending the morning in the Palace grounds. There was plenty of seating and it was a nice day so luckily we could sit outside. The food was nice, I had a schnitzel sandwich and we followed it with the traditional strudel and cream, which was delicious (although very filling!). Service was ok at first, but later it was a bit slower. Definitely could be worse though considering there's not loads of places to grab lunch nearby!

We booked a Viator tour which included an audio guided tour of Schonbrunn Place which is a UNESCO listed treasure. The tour took a bit more than an hour. Then we strolled the lavish grounds and took pictures until it was time for dinner.
If you come a bit early, they have a nice outdoor bar with tables where you can wait.
Inside, we had our 3 course meal with dessert. Drinks were extra but the food and service were great.
